It was a pleasure to meet with my new health care provider. I never once felt rushed or like I was on a time clock with the visit.
Swedish Patient

My doctor of 17 years ([...]) recently retired. I was devastated and extremely worried about connecting with someone new. Sara Benveniste seemed aware that this was a tough transition for me and really took her time to make sure I felt comfortable and informed. I'm very happy that she will be my new doctor.

Provider did not seem to listen/respond to my high levels of chronic pain experienced. [...]

I still felt a little confused about what actions to take [...]
Swedish Patient

All staff work as a very tight team each showing compassion and care.
Swedish Patient

Dr. Benveniste has looked after all 3 of my children for years and continues to provide the best medical care we have ever received. I trust her judgment and advice implicitly, and she puts my children so at ease that they even look forward to appointments. She is courteous, approachable, knowledgeable, and kind. I have frequently recommended her to others, and shall continue to do so.
Swedish Patient

As a physician , Benveniste is fabulous, but I would not recommend her to others as she is frequently unavailable to be seen for days and oftentimes, there are no colleagues available requiring a trip to urgent care.
Swedish Patient

My provider has always given me answers to all of my health questions in a most comprehensive and friendly manner. I couldn't ask nor expect more, her service has always been excellent.
Swedish Patient

Sara did not seem comfortable making eye contact and often looked behind me while speaking.
Swedish Patient

my experience overall was good, I mean, I think she recommended a reasonably appropriate course of treatment, but her exam was minimal and my symptoms persist, so I'm concerned I will have to return. same day appointment was great though.
Swedish Patient

it did seem in my last appt that the doctor did not have very much time to spend due to a very busy schedule, she was a little rushed but did a good job in the time provided
Swedish Patient

my only concern is that she may not be taking my genetic immune deficiency seriously
Swedish Patient

Dr. Benveniste was excellent in every way. I will be using her as my regular physician from now on.
Swedish Patient

Dr. Benveniste has been the primary care provider for my three children for the past 3+ years. She gives them unparalleled care, has a wonderful manner with them, and I have the utmost confidence and trust in her judgment. Frankly, I can't imagine taking them to any other doctor. We love her.
Swedish Patient

I have enjoyed Dr. Benveniste's unparalleled medical care both for myself or for my children over the past 6+ years. I have recommended her to others on countless occasions, and shall continue to do so. I can't think of any other doctor I would trust my children with more than her.
