Very thorough initial interview. Did not feel rushed. Medical support staff were personable and thorough ( they both even seemed to have senses of humor!) However, reception left something to be desired. For the first appointment at 7 am there should not have been a 30 minute wait while the staff had coffee and geared up for the day. I completed the paperwork promptly and still waited about 20 minutes then saw a medical assistant. See above.

My experience with Dr. Benenati was a very good one. She was very thorough and her staff was very informative about how I needed to prepare before each visit for my test. Dr. Benenati is very knowledgable in her field and I highly recommend her to any one who is looking for excellence in an allergist immunologist.

Dr. Benenati analyzed my allergy conditions and made an excellent recommendation that was a game changer. Considering I've had allergies throughout most of my life, I was thrilled with the results of this medical product, and would certainly recommend her. I live about an hour away and still drive for a routine check up because she really helped!
