One Star

I was a patient of Dr. Benoit for 20 years, I had surgery with him and needless to say it didn't go so well. I've had to have two surgeries to repair what he did and I'm not sure if I will fully recover for his surgery! He's a good doctor until he makes a mistake, he did not handle my case properly! I would never recommend him to anyone.

Five Stars

I have gone to Dr. Benoit for over 23 years, and he delivered all 4 of my babies, who are now all grown up. I could never sum up how wonderful he is in a little box, but in a nutshell: Even though he is as busy as any OB/GYN, you would never know it because he takes the time with you to answer any/all questions as if you are his only patient of the day. He is also very respectful of a woman's modesty and for some reason, I don't feel like a cow w/ feet up in the stirrups as I had in the past w/ other docs. This guy is one of a kind and super knowledgeable. He got me through some difficult medical situations and I trust him w/ my life.
