Specialties

Dr. Junitha J Benjamin has the following 2 specialties

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

  • General Practice

    A general practitioner is similar to a family practitioner in that they treat patients of all ages with a variety of health concerns. These doctors treat everyday ailments, some acute and chronic diseases, and also provid health checkups, physicals, inoculations and preventative care.
    General practitioners differ from family practitioners because they are not required to complete an additional residency in family medicine after completing their medical school residency. Like family practitioners, general practitioners will also provide referrals to patients who are in need of a specialist.

This Doctor: Junitha Benjamin Prescribed Atorvastatin - It Caused Severe Musle Cramps

I took my mother to see this doctor for the first time. She prescribed her Atorvastatin. The problem with this medication is it causes severe muscle cramps. This medication almost totally disabled her. It took me a couple of days to figure out what was going on and when I did, I took her off this medication. As soon as I did, a rapid improvement followed. I still have the bottle of pills today. She's on Simvastatin. It's better for her. If it is not maintaining a good cholesterol reading. Perhaps the doctor could consider increasing the strength.

Wow!!!

First I'll say, I think that the overall medical care is pretty good. From time to time the wait can be lengthy. However, just today I experienced something I've never experienced before. I was told that I had to pay upfront for my visit although my deductible is fully satisfied and I have no co-pay or co-insurance(out of pocket cost) to be paid. I asked if there was a problem with the insurer (negligent, slow to pay or something). I was told know and that "it is just our policy". I chose a more costly policy for the convenience of extensive coverage without a lot of out of pocket cost (beyond the deductible). For a medical group to just disregard the provisions of the policy for no other reason than their "because we said so" explanation is unconscionable.

Good diagnosis, very long wait

If you have 2-3 hours to spend going to the doctor, see Dr. Benjamin. After waiting in a warm waiting room for 1 1/2 hours (with an appointment), we finally got to see the doctor after waiting in the room for another 1 1/2 hours. His diagnosis was good, and my daughter received good treatment.
