Dr. Benedict first diagnosed my daughter's retina degeneration when she was 13. We clearly had been dealing with a syndrome that affected many body systems but no one had been able to name. With this new puzzle piece of information, he sent us to the one person in our state whose specialty is genetic syndromes that affect the eyes. Since then, I (Mom) have stayed current with every development re this syndrome where research has blossomed in recent years. When we go for my daughter's annual visit, Dr. Benedict asks for updates, reads a journal paper I bring for him, etc. It's refreshing to have a doctor who recognizes he cannot be current on extremely rare syndromes to the same degree that an intelligent parent can who has interest in only one.
