Samuel I. Benesh, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As a physician practicing for 30 years, I firmly believe that personalized patient care is the most effective way to practice medicine. Having the time to really listen to patient concerns and to focus on preventive care as well as existing health problems, provides better outcomes for my patients. Coordinating and overseeing all aspects of my patients' care reduces the stress that many people experience in navigating our complicated healthcare system. It is my goal to help my patients achieve their optimal health by being attentive to their individual issues and creating personalized wellness plans that best meet their needs.
