About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

I have frequently and will continue to recommend Dr. Benveniste to anyone in need of an accomplished, thoughtful, caring and thorough physician. My whole family loves her, she is truly the best.

Dr. B demonstrated she more than cared not only about me, yet the health of my family whom she was not providing care for as well. This was demonstrated by taking the time to listen and inquire. We still managed to cover enough ground and get everything done inside of 20 minutes or so. A smile and showing compassion goes a long way.

It really helps keep up motivation to make regular check-ups and also to improve between visits, when your doctor is encouraging and enthusiastic about your health.

Dr. Benveniste has been incredibly wonderful to me over this past month. I have been sick for over a month now. She has ordered tests to get answered. Called me back when I was having a very bad day and called me the other night, unprompted just to check in. I can't tell you how much that meant to me. [...] She has been nothing but wonderful.

I would say that I do feel rushed when I met with my provider and that she is alway on the computer while I'm talking to her. I think she gets all the information but it just feel like there is a lack of connection.

Dr. Benveniste continues to be the best and only physician I would take my family to see. She is the absolute best in every way.

I diagnosed myself by researching my symptoms online and with friends. When I wanted a doctor's professional opinion, I felt judged and like I was making it all up. I was told to drink less, stop worrying and that she wasn't convinced there was anything wrong with me but gave me the treatment anyway. It was a negative experience and I am thinking of switching doctors because of it.

Doctor Benveniste had a pleasant, reassuring demeanor. I arrived with anxiety knowing labs would be taken and the suspense of their results. I would have liked her to have asked me if I had any other concerns as I did come prepared with questions that I prioritized. When the exam ended so promptly, I could have used some time for lesser concerns.

Dr. Benveniste has been looking after my children for over four years and I trust her judgment and medical knowledge implicitly. She is thorough, mindful, approachable, and courteous. Her bedside manner is so impeccable that my kids look forward to their check-ups. I have recommended her to countless friends and shall continue to do so.

I usually see [...] and am very pleased and happy with his care. On an urgent or last minute basis I have seen other providers at Swedish and have always been pleased. This was the worst visit I have had. The provider was terrible and seemed to care less about what my pain or injury was. I had to ask her the routine follow up questions (how often should I go to PT? How much ibuprofen should I take to relieve the pain?) she should tell me. Why am I asking her this before she bolts out the door?!? She was in the room no more than 8 minutes. It was a complete waste of my time and afternoon. [...] This visit has made me contemplate whether I should switch clinics/providers all together.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
