I gave one star because that was the lowest. The office staff is the most rude and incompetent medica staff i have ever dealt with. They try to justify 3 hour waits.

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....more

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.
