My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I always try to follow the practice principles I was given when I finished my residency in internal medicine in 1986. First, be truthful to yourself and your patients no matter how much it hurts. Second, your patients are smart so present the options to them clearly and let them decide on what to do. However, be truthful in explaining the potential consequences of the decisions. Finally, if you really can’t help them medically, always be there for support.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Bienenfeld

from Cheneta in NC March 18, 2023 for Michael Bienenfeld, MD

I am so thankful for “Dr. B”as so many affectionately calls him! Since the very start of having my 1st AWP, I have been very impressed with the exams. But more so with the review of the reports. Dr. B is exceptional in his explanation of my results. I have a family history of heart disease. This raised questions to me what I needed to watch for to avoid such a future. My cholesterol levels… See more

from Harry in NC May 23, 2020 for Michael Bienenfeld, MD

I have trouble reconciling myself to my gradually declining physical and-to be truthful- mental capacities. My bucket list has included sky diving (checked off 3X), scuba diving (aortic stenosis),... Dr. B never fails to give to do research and give me encouragement and good advice with a chuckle.

from Marilyn in NC March 28, 2020 for Michael Bienenfeld, MD

Having been seeing Dr Bienenfeld for about 5 mos, it is quite comforting to know I can see him without the usual wait time. He is very caring and was able to recommend the right treatment for my condition. His staff is very concerned about your issues and and always have a smile for you. After each appointment you feel encouraged knowing that he does the very best for you.

My wife, Regan and I have had Dr. Bienenfeld and his trusty wife/nurse-assistant as our health providers for about 15 years. In our mid-70’s now, we have been fortunate to not have had any health crises. Nonetheless, some of our parts are wearing out, and Dr. Bienenfeld has been very helpful in careful and thorough exams, treating our minor problems and quickly finding us specialists to check… See more

from Ellen Laurin in NC March 11, 2020 for Michael Bienenfeld, MD

I came to Dr. Bienenfeld on the recommendation of a friend. My previous primary care physician had moved away. It was the best decision I ever made about health care. Dr. Bienenfeld's attention to detail in lab work is wonderful. His quiet, reassuring manner immediately put me at ease. I always feel cared for and know that he is truly listening when I talk. His referral to a new… See more

from Donna in NC March 10, 2020 for Michael Bienenfeld, MD

We moved to the area from New Jersey 14 years ago when we retired. Looking for a doctor in the area was difficult. Some whom were recommended did not accept Medicare. We changed doctors three times until we found Dr. Bienenfeld. He was professional, caring and open for questions. Just what we were looking for in a physician. He is a great diagnostician and when he feels that a specialist is… See more

from Jane in NC March 8, 2020 for Michael Bienenfeld, MD

I will never forget recently when I was trying to find his new office and was very lost, Dr. Bienenfeld sent his receptionist to pick me up and bring me to his office. I can’t imagine another Doctor doing so for their patient. Dr Bienenfeld always treats his patients with great care and explains any new procedures or pharmaceuticals very thoroughly. I am so fortunate to have him for my… See more

from Ron in NC March 3, 2020 for Michael Bienenfeld, MD

My wife and I moved to Cary nine years ago and were accepted as patients by Dr. Bienenfeld. We quickly learned how caring a physician he was. A little over three years ago my wife was diagnosed with cancer. At that time Dr. B was very supportive and did everything possible to aid in her diagnosis and treatment. Unfortunately, my wife passed away but she and I both knew that he had done… See more

from Ann Marie in NC March 1, 2020 for Michael Bienenfeld, MD

I will never, ever forget your exceptional care over the past few years, but most especially during my husband's final days and my healing subsequent to his passing. You went above and beyond to ensure my husband had the appropriate 24/7 care in his final two weeks. As for me, I was able to get through the most difficult event in my life because of you and your staff. I am forever… See more
