Dr. Benedikt diagnosed a back problem I had for years in a manner of minutes. Just by the way I was standing and walking, he correctly identified where my pain was and had a plan of attack on how to alleviateit. He is also very easy to talk to, and very lighthearted in conversation, which immediately made me feel comfortable. I would absolutely recommend him!

Dr. Benedikt is very informative and shows concern for your treatment. There are few doctors left with his values and professionalism, he does not care about making money. I am looking forward to beginning my treatment with him. I highly recommendhim if you prefer not to take drugs or pills and want to treat the cause.

I saw Dr. Benedikt for brief back alignment and electric stimulation therapy. If you're looking for an in-and-out doctor, he should do the trick. Very chatty and affable guy.

He insisted on "preventive care" and that i return to him every week. Spoke about everything in the world (from politics to technology) expect how to adjust my posture & change my desk to avoid any neck issues in the future(he would tell me how to make those changes the next time I saw him). My $0.02.. this is typical for most chiropractors .. they want repeat business... finding one you like & trust is hard.

Dr.. Benedikt saw me right away but the entire visit took about 25 minutes and he talked for 15 minutes explaining the practice. So he only adjusted my neck and back briefly for 10 minutes.

Dr. Benedikt was prompt, efficient, and very friendly! This was my first visit and he made sure to cover all the basics about chiropractic sessions as well as specifics about how he conducts his practice. He has a very pragmatic approachand pays close attention to every detail, from the answers you give to checking the tread on your shoes for patterns of wear. I have already recommended him to two friends!
