Dr. Benesh has been our family's physician for as long as he has been in practice, approximately 37 years. He is loved by our family, especially by my Dad who recently passed away at 93 and was given the utmost care by Dr. Benesh. You can contact him at any time and if he is with a patient, he will immediately return your call. Sometimes, I receive test results from him before I have even arrived home! He is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, funny and everything I want in a primary care physician. Can't imagine my medical care without him! He's the best!

Dr. Benesh is an all-star physician. He has always been available- even during the holidays. One July 4th weekend, while visiting the beach, I slammed my finger in a car door. After screaming every expletive that I could conjure up, I phoned Dr. Benesh. He calmly advised me how to deal with the injury. Then, did a follow up when I returned to Baltimore. Great Doc.

Dr Benesh is always available when I call with a problem. Once I called on the weekend with a serious health problem, he got me through the night and saw me early in the morning. His advice in Loosing weight helped me loose 36 pounds in less than a year. I have been a patient for over 20 years.

Dr. Benesh has been our family physician for many years and I have a great deal of trust and respect for him. He always spends the time to explain and make suggestions when I need him to. He is extremely knowledgable especially about cardiology questions. I have several family members that have had heart issues. Dr. Benesh is a doctor I would recommend to anyone that is looking for a competent physician.

Just wanted to say Dr. Benesh is the most thorough, compassionate, caring, Doctor I have ever known. Hoping he stays in his practice for a very long time and Obamacare does not drive him too crazy !

Dr. Benesh has been my primary doctor for 30 years. I would not change doctors for anything in this world. He has kept me alive and well and I always look forward to seeing him. He knows me like a book and has never failed to be there for me or to let me know about my conditions immediately by phone and written details. I would not have any other primary doctor in my lifetime and that is a fact!

Dr. Samuel Benesh has been in my family for at least 30 years. Many years ago my mother was suffering from rheumatic heart condition and diabetes. My sister and I searched high and low for a doctor who could not only oversee her heart condition but also her diabetes. Dr. Benesh came highly recommended by a friend telling us, Dr. Benesh is a good doctor and he had a wonderful personality. Through the years many of my family members became Dr. Benesh's patients. What I really love about him (notice I used the word love) is that he continued to study and research new advancements in science and in the medical field. If there's a medical issue that I are dealing with, Dr. Benesh will not hesitate to refer me to a reliable specialist. I remember when I was having a specific problem, Dr. Benesh said, I have 2 doctors who I feel are excellent in this area, however, one has great bedside manners, the other doesn't. You can take your pick. Of course I picked the first. I can call him anytime of the day or night and he will always be available. At the end of my Mother's life, she had to have a heart val replacement. While she was hospitalized Dr. Benesh had every top specialist in Sinai and Hopkins assist in her care. He was wonderful. At the end, Dr. Benesh sent a contribution to the United Negro College Fund in my Mother's name. How often do we hear that our doctors are not only competent but also kind. Well I have one and Dr. Benesh is the one. Dr. Michelle Harris Bondima

My experience with Dr. Benesh : Everyone gave up on me and told my family I was going to die. They called in hospice and was sending me to a place to die. Dr. Benesh found me Dr. Katlic in Sinai Hospital to operate on me. That was in August 2013. I am now in my Florida vacation place very much alive and feeling well thanks to Dr. Benesh not giving up . I am very indebted to Dr. Benesh for my life.

DR. B.....what a guy! I first met the good doctor when he was I guess you would call him an intern with my doctor at the time Dr Stienberg, and have been with him ever since. He has always been there when I needed him for his service or advice. I will do NOTHING without consulting Dr Benesh first. To me, his word is all that I need. Would I recommend this doctor to others....in a heart beat David Weiner

Dear Dr. Benesh, You have done so much for me that I could go on writing for pages and pages. However, I will take just one example of your compassion and caring. Starting in January of 2013, I developed blood clots on two different occasions in my left calf after two separate complete knee replacement surgeries. These complications happened even though I was taking warfarin exactly as prescribed and was following all the eating protocols recommended with this medication. Dr. Benesh, you took a lot of time and went to a lot of trouble to research Xarelto, a new blood thinner, that you determined might be a better choice for me. You went to the trouble of finding out if my mitral valve repair would disqualify me from being a candidate for this medication. Fortunately, I was able to switch from Warfarin to Xarelto. Once you determined that I could take this medication, you contacted all of my other doctors--the orthopedic surgeon, the vascular surgeon, the cardiologist, and the doctor who takes care of my asthma-- to explain your recommendation. They all agreed with you. I can't even imagine how much time you took to speak with everyone. And, the Xarelto worked. I just stopped taking the Xarelto last month after being on it for about ten months. I had no more problems with blood clots, thanks to you. And I am now back in the gym three time a week, continuing to work on my strength and conditioning. Thank you Dr. Benesh, not only for the help with the Xarelto, but for all you have done to help me be my best. I am truly grateful to have yo for my doctor..

There are so many wonderful things to say about Dr. Benesh as he has been my physician as well as my husband and Dad's for 30+ years. Since being affiliated with MDVIP we NEVER have to wait to be seen, my texts and emails are answered immediately and in fact, he encourages me to text him. If I need a prescription refill and I am not in a rush I will tell him it's not urgent and he immediately texts back done! Even something trivial that I may have heard on the news will always receive an expedient reply. He is an amazing physician who truly cares and takes all the time necessary to answer our questions and provide whatever medical care is necessary. He exemplifies what an MDVIP doctor-patient relationship is by always being there for us!
