“I took my dad to Dr. Benitez when he had gout problems. he was in a lot of pain, had difficulty walking and was traveling in a few days. Dr. Benitez knew exactly what to do and was able to stop the swelling in his feet. Needless to say my dad was able to comfortably travel on an international flight and it is all thanks to Dr.Benitez.”
