Ratings for Dr. James L. Benoit
After trying to have kids for years, I went to Benoit to have my Seman analysed. He told me "90% of the time it's the female, don't waste you money on the test it's not covered by insurance" . I took his so called expert advise and lone behold my wife was healthy. After a few more years of trying to have kids, I returned to Benoit and demanded a Seman analysis, which was actually covered by insurance. Got the results and lone behold I was the problem with <1% of good sperm. He called me to give me the news, and I reminded him I asked for this this test years prior, but he was quick to change the subject. I asked what could cause this or what I could do to help my situation. He could not provide me any answers, and would not even refer me to a urologist. I was basically told good luck. What a way to ruin a marriage and a future family and wasting years, when I could have had this simple test early in life when I requested it.
Dr. Benoit and Staff are the best in all of CA. He is very kind and understanding, I have been with this doctor for over three years. I simply could not imagine my life and health without all of them. I would highly recommend this doctor for all of your medical needs. Thank you Dr. Benoit and staff,
Dr. Benoit is a very caring and open minded doctor. He was referred to me by a friend out of state. I see him every 2 1/2 months fot treatment of chronic pain and other serious healt conditionds. He is the kind of doctor who listens carefully and then makes his recommendations based on my symptoms. I really like him, however, it's his staff that needs to work on their communication skills. I have to call 2 or more times just to get them to call me back. They often get confused with simple questions or instructions. I think Dr. Benoit needs to sit them down at a staff meeting to remind them that the patient comes first and foremost. If they could only show a little more caring and responsibily to the patient, that office would be 100% more effective.
Dr. Benoit has been my doctor, my husband's, my mom's, my daughter's & her neighbor's for years. He is primarily available to listen to our concerns and has responded with appropriate treatment for our illnesses. The amazing part is the extremely prompt telephone response to our requests. No other doctor in my lifetime has had such a wonderful support system to be able to respond is this manner. The hospital he works with, St. Jude is a fantastic hospital. We trust him with our lives. If need be, he will direct us properly to a doctor who will treat that particular problem.
Dr. Benoit is an excellent care provider. he is my father's doctor. there is no one i trust more to take care of my dad than Dr. Benoit.He goes above and beyond what is required to see that his needs are met. i would recommend him to anyone seeking an excellent and caring physician.
My daughter(16yr) went in for presure on her chest and pain down her arm. This would happen when ever she would exert herself (she was in very good shape so this was very alarming). He just said she is too young for a heart problem, never ran any test and treated her for acid reflux. That treatment did not resolve anything and an oral surgon noticed her heart rate and immediatley stopped the procedure he was doing and called me to say this was not acid reflux. I self refered to a specialist( I can do this under my ins plan) and no sooner did the specialist find a problem that Dr. Benoit calls my home, leavs a message that I cannot go to any Dr. without his approval and I should learn how my insurance works. (Strange, I never have rcv'd calls back for med questions) NEWS FLASH DOCTOR - I contacted my insurance prior to the self referal and I am not the one who needs to learn. This Dr. needs to brush up on the insurance he accepts and more important his medical skills.
Dr. Benoit is very good in sticking to his appointments. He has an excellent command of the medicines available to treat and alieve problems I have had. I highly recommend him to all patients who need a good general doctor to treat their conditions. He is very professional and his staff is well-informed.
