Visit this Dr's office at your own risk. These idiots don't need to be in the position of taking care of patients. No communication skills what so ever. Hours upon hours of wait time, 2-3, hours, as much as 5 hours total office visit time. Be sure to pack your lunch and/or supper when going here. The billing department is nothing but a joke. They wait months on end to file claims, and also double bill for the same visit and procedures. Run as fast as you can from this place. You have been warne

Dr. Benish is a nice guy; however, his office operates very poorly. They close at random times, you have to wait FOREVER just to be seen, and they are very slow with calling in your prescriptions. I wouldn't say don't go here, just clear your calendar when you do.
