One Star

I have never been talked to or treated the way he did with me. He wanted to take me off of everything and only gave me 2 weeks of Hydrocodone. I have been on all these drugs for 10 years now and that was very harsh treatment for a 77-year-old woman.

I have been seeing Dr. Benavides for a couple of years for severe back, neck & shoulder issues. He has always taken very good care of mr. He always asks if I have any issues or questions, hW makes sure I understand everything & actually listens to what I have to say & to any concerns I may have.

Unprofessional, Rude, and Unknowledgable

Likely the worst doctor that I have ever met. He is arrogant and condescending, chronically late, and unprofessional. Plan to wait for at least 2 hours (especially if it's anywhere near lunchtime). He will not smile and he does not know the answers to basic medical questions. His number one priority is to keep you on as many pills as possible. You will be interrogated at each visit and treated like an inconvenience that pads his wallet rather than a caring physician.

Dr Do Little

His site states that he offers all kinds of procedures to manage chronic pain. BUT I certainly wasn't offered any of those listed! I only met him once and after that I was always met by a PA. I finally insisted on starting a procedure that was said to stop my kind of pain. After the initial injections, I had little or no pain and was excited and ready for the final procedure that would make it permanent. Imagine my surprise when he told me that because I didn't have pain for a week, after the procedure, he wouldn't do the final one! He said I needed to lose weight and do aerobic exercise! I'm nearly 80, have bad knees, an ankle that barely works, torn rotator cusp and can barely walk with a cane...and yes, I could afford to lose 30 lbs. but at my age losing weight is hard. I had always felt that he really did not want me as a patient and I told him that. He didn't deny it and so I left, sorry that I had wasted so much time with a person that obviously never took the Hippocratic Oath to heart. I laughed all the way home as if anyone needs to lose weight and do exercise...it's Dr Benevides! He is fat and messy looking. If you want a doctor with the personality of a petulant teen, this is your guy!!!

Tom M., retired senior Naval Officer/Pilot.

I have been under the professional care of Dr. Benavides for three years. I am a retired Navy Commander who was fortunate to have flown the F-14 during these 22 years. An unfortunate result of this stressful flying was I have had 8 spine operations which have been painful to say the least. Dr Benavides has been instrumental in my rehabilitation, and just as important, has reduced significantly at times excruciating pain associated with the surgeries. He always has the time. He always gives me the time to explain his methods pertaining to pain relief are. In my opinion there is simply no one I trust my health and well-being to than Dr. Benavides...period!
