I always have a good experience when I see Dr. Benchaya for my ongoing Myasthenia checkups. I would recommend others to this facility for their medical issues.

My visit with Dr Benchaya was the best. He took the time to explain everything, didn’t rush thru my questions and put my mind at ease regarding my heath and what I can expect in the future. I would highly recommend him .
