    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.

EXCELLENT CARE AND EASY TO TALK WITH

Dr. Benedict is very patient friendly and takes the time to listen and gets to know you as a person. This enables him to be able to understand how to properly care for my diabetes care and treatment. Always seems available for appointments and is very easy to talk with.

I think Dr. Benedict needs to re-evaluate his position as a endo Dr. I was told that I had severe bone loss and I needed to do reclast right away. It was a shock to hear this in the first place but I felt that he had absolutely no sympathy what so ever. He said well you do not have to have it and sneeze and break your back. WHAT A TERRIBLE THING TO SAY!!!!. I would not recommend this Dr.

I would recommend Dr. Benedict for any diabetic looking for a new endocrinologist. The last few that I'd seen were, at best, distant and mechanical, with recommendations and suggestions that I've known for twenty years. Dr. Benedict is a fun, human doctor who helps me see where I can make little improvements in my health- he's both realistic and helpful, which I've literally never seen (at least to this degree) in an endocrinologist before.
