Dr. Benavides has exceeded my standards in every single way. Her staff always greets me immediately, takes my vitals, and tells me how long of a wait I will have. Once I am with Dr. B, she always takes time to see how I am doing personally, professionally, and then we dive into the health assessment. We even set goals for the next visit. She has literally saved my life!
