Dr. Benedetti is a wonderful doctor who has shown great care and concern for my child, as well as the rest of us, during this difficult time. We never feel rushed during appointments, and we can tell he genuinely cares and always treats us with respect and kindness. I am grateful to the Lord for bringing us to him and to Vanderbilt for my child's care.
