I had the Active FX laser done at Dr. Benests office a few months ago and i love the results! Way more than I expected. My skin is much tighter, more even, and glowing! Goodbye wrinkle!

I have been a patient of this office for several years. My son has recently been a patient for the treatment of acne. The nurses and doctors themselves are lovely, but the office staff is the absolute worst I have ever experienced. They are rude, unconcerned, and miserable to deal with......constantly and consistently. My son is required to make monthly visits as part of his treatment. He has two months left, and I am literally counting the days to be finished with this office. Month after month, there is some issue or mishandling that makes it a hassle and miserable experience. Yet, I receive weekly soliciations for more cosmetic procedure business. Perhaps they should consider slowing down on the soliciation of new business until they can remotely figure out how to handle the patients they have. It is almost surreal dealing with them month-to-month. I have spoken with Dr. Benest, and it is almost as if she has the apology scripted....until she hangs up and it's shoddy business all over again. Be prepared to be frustrated....far beyond what should be expected from a professional office.

Dr. Benest stayed late to see me on an emergency basis. She saved me trip to an ER where I could have waited for hours. Dr. Benest treated my injury on the spot and put my mind at ease that the injury was not a serious as I had feared. Thank you Dr. Benest!

I just came from Dr. Lisa Benest office and it was great. She is the best of all the offices I have been to. She and her staff are so professional and Dr. Benest has great communication with me. I like her. She cares beyond the service and is a real delight!!! I give her 6 stars butthey only allow 5 stars.\r\n\r\n

I recently visited Dr. Benest's office and received laser treatments. I have scheduled these treatments on a fairly regular basis and love the results. My daughters always notice my skin and load me up with compliments....which I love.\r\n\r\nThe staff is so friendly and the nurses have always given me special care. It's as if all my questions are answered before I need to ask them. I feel comfortable and relaxed. \r\n\r\nThe nursing staff at Dr. Benest's office is ""by far"" the most skilled and attentive staff I have ever experienced. I give the office a big thumbs up. \r\n\r\nLinelle

My doctor recommended this office to remove a mole. There are 2 sides: the medical and the cosmetic. I was treated professionally by the medical side and they strongly pitched their cosmetic side. I decided to make an appt. for a service which included using a laser. \nWhen I came for the appt., very little was as described to me earlier. I was given some numbing (which didn't), NOT asked whether it was working sufficiently, and shuttled around without anyone going over what was happening. The laser was EXCRUCIATING and I completely freaked out. The technician was uncaring and rude. I was ignored when I said I was in pain and to stop. She sort of chuckled. \nThough I was in tears, shaking, and visibly upset, I was left with a wet paper towel. She didn't ask why I was upset or care that I said something was wrong. After a while I was given a coldpak, but otherwise disregarded.\nLater, I asked to talk Dr. Benest, but she wouldn't speak directly with me.

I love coming to this office!! I can't disagree with that last review enough!!!! My whole family goes here and from visits to calls, we always get friendly helpful service from everyone at Dr. Benest's office. I have seen Dr. Benest as well as Dr. Rush and both are professional, thorough and as long as I follow the Doctors orders, I ALWAYS see improvement!!! When I started coming to them I was having breakouts that were frustrating and no matter what I tried on my own, I couldnt get it to completely go away...now my skin is clear and vibrant!!!! They can do wonderful things!

I went to this doctors office and now twice the communication has been poor! The first time the front office told me my insurance would cover the facial. Although Dr Benest was kind enough to settle with me for some reason her staff and her other doctors are really poor at treatment. One doctor is no longer there and Dr. Rush told me that on my second visit we should do a biopsy but even though cancer is not a factor , she did not do that and thats the reason why I came back for a biopsy as I have a very NOW inflamed rash thanks to the crappy samples she gave me which has made it worse and more inflamed. I will NOT be returning to this office. Beware of the lack of communication and proper care.

I've been using botox as my filler of choice for awhile, but I heard of something similar called Dysport. I contacted Dr. Benest (through the recommendation of a friend) and got right in. The doctor convinced me to try it out; with the special she was running if I had the treatment this month, I would receive two $75 mail in rebates. Sign me up! The Dysport had the same results as the Botox in my opinion. We'll see how long it lasts.

I have been coming here for at least 5 years!! Dr. Lisa Benest in a very knowledgeable dermatologist. She takes her time and knows her stuff. The front desk girls are all very sweet and start to feel like friends after a few visits. I have had facials, peels, laser hair removal...tons of beauty treatments here. I have sent my friends for fillers, permanent makeup and acne....they were all very pleased!!\nDr. Benest has removed moles for me and always showed me natural ways to stay healthy and keep my skin glowing. Her products are wonderful! I recommend her skin lightening cream for those dark spots!! It really works. She carries a variety of skin care from medical to all natural!\nThe treatment rooms are all made for comfort, and everyone is helpful!\nI highly recommend her nurse LuAnne for all your filler and laser needs, she rocks!!! She has a great eye for detail and won't let you down!! \nGO HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had a terrible experience. Don't get the strong peeling there. They told me that will improve my skin condition, but it got worse. I told them what happened to my skin, then they recommended an expensive ointment, and I bought it and tried it, but it didn't work at all. I spent so much money there, and my skin just got worse. \n\nAll what they care is to sell more. \n\nBy the way, I don't know about the doctor. They didn't even let me see her.

I have been going to Dr. Benest's Office for about 6 months now, and I LOVE it! Dr. Benest was extremely knowlegable and knew exactly what would help my issue! Since doing what she recommended I have noticed a tremendous change in my skin for the better, and wouldn't dream of seeing anyone else. The office is super friendly and always helpful! I think that anyone who has a need for a good skin Doctor should go here!!

I was a first time patient who attempted to schedule an appointment approximately 2 months ago, when I called I was told that the office was busy and asked if I could call back. I was surprised that they did not take my number to call me back. A couple weeks later I called again to schedule an appointment and let them know that I was a new patient. \n\nThe Saturday afternoon before my Tuesday appointment I received voice mail from the Dr.'s office with a reminder of my appointment and notified to arrive early as I would have to fill out forms given I was a new patient. I was also told I could save some time if I went to their website to download the new patient forms if I wanted to fill them out ahead of time. I did get the forms from the site and filled them out. \n\nWhen I arrived for my appointment I with my forms filled out I was told you don't accept Aetna or my PPO. This should have been told to me when I scheduled the appointment. The receptionist made it clear that any services would be out of pocket on my part and I would have to work with my insurance company directly. Had I know this I could have done it AHEAD of time. This was a waste of my time.\n\nI can't speak to the services provided by the doctors, but I can tell you that the office staff needs to be educated on how to do their job, from the woman to I spoke with to make my appointment to the receptionist who abruptly said, ""we don't accept this insurance"" followed by it would be on me to follow-up with my insurance company on any claims.\n\nThe attitude in the office was very poor. The impression they give is that they focus on cosmetic procedures then providing true health care.

I, personally, have not gotten the results I was expecting for the amount of money I forked out for the Smoothbeam treatments. The staff is great, Ewa is amazing with peels!

I have definitely noticed an improvement in the texture & amount of wrinkles after my photofacial treatments, particularly in my neck, which is what I was most concerned about in the first place. Everyone in the office is so sweet and so caring, always concerned about my comfort as well-being. I love coming to this office. JD\r\n

I am absolutely ecstatic over the results I got from the Smoothbeam treatments. I am 38 years old and have had an ongoing tendency with acne break-outs since my teen years and I am so happy to look at myself in the mirror and see my face without one pimple on it anywhere! I am also extremely pleased by how healthy & youthful my skin looks thanks to the collagen-boosting effect which is an unexpected plus. I cannot thank the office of Lisa Benest MD enough for their extra special care and professionalism. They did an excellent job to make me comfortable and satisfied as a customer the whole way through. -K.A.

If you're eager to be a summed up as a source of profit, choose this office. This office packs people in like sardines. It seems more like a money grubbing conveyor belt than a doctor's office or even a medi spa. The staff is unaccommodating, get em in-get em out. I could hear the cash register ca-chinging in every way they treated me, from scheduling to condescending politely smug demeanor. I wasn't expecting to find other bad reviews because things have to be bad for people to post, but I agree with poster advice who said:RUN don't walk from this office. NOT recommended.

I suffered from a foot infection for almost a year and I tried all kinds of medications. I was referred to Dr. Benest. She looked at the infection, asked a few questions and prescribed some medication which did wonders! In less than a week the infection was gone. Thank you Dr. Benest!

I'd never had a ""filler"" for my wrinkles before so I was a bit nervous, but the nurses\r\nat the office are incredible. Jennifer evaluated my skin and chose Perlane. She literally turned my frown\r\nupside down. I didn't know so little could make such a big difference! I don't look like I'm sad or mad anymore. I wish I'd done this sooner.\r\n

I have been getting treatments from Dennie Tabor in Dr. Benest's office for about two years, and for the first time in my life I am getting compliments on my skin that include the word ""gorgeous."" On a recent trip to Sephora, it was quite rewarding when the girls told me that my skin was flawless and my makeup was perfect! Dennie gave me the flawless skin--I just added a little makeup. Everyone in the office is personable and efficient. It's a pleasure to go there.
