She was very pleasant. However, she did not provide me with any information I did already know or have access to. She read my test results directly from my account, records I had already seen and read. I spent $300 for this visit and walked away with no new or helpful information.

Dr. Benavides is excellent with our care and we feel very lucky to have found her after our previous cardiologist retired.
