This was such a good experience for me. It was my first visit and I mixed up my appointment time and was almost two hours late. Dr. Benedetto was willing to see me. The nurse took me in immediately, I did not have to wait very long for the doctor to come into the examining room after the nurse took the initial information from me. The doctor spent all the necessary time to examine me, discuss some issues and direct me in the right direction, which at this time seems to be working and I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Benedetto for a three month continuation check up. I am so happy that I was able to meet such a fine dermatologist that just doesn't push patients through in four minutes.

Very pleased with everything about Dr. Benedetto! My only concern was that the ointment was very expensive . I attempted to get assistance from the doctors office to get the insurance com to allow a lower copay. Humana refused because they said I should have been offered a generic ointment. Your web site, although very good for Cleveland Clinic to send out information & share information amongst it's staff is very difficult for the patient to get information to it's doctors! I STILL AM UNABLE TO COMMUNICATE WITH MY DOCTOR!
