Wayne D. Benjamin, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My primary (or Family) practice of medicine is different from many other practices because we care for a much smaller number of patients.  Therefore, our appointments are timely and unhurried dedicating more time to each patient where we can focus on the individual patient and their unique needs.  Availability is further enhanced by cell phone or e-mail access 24/7.  We are proactive in our care rather than reactive.  In this partnership we will focus on promoting good health and work toward preventing long term illness.
