Excellent. the staff knows our family, and remembers details about each child. The Dr always makes sure everything is covered, goes over his 5-4-3-2-1 things that kids should follow (5 fruits and vegetables, 4 glasses of water, etc.). They talk about it in the weeks after their appointments and it seems to stay with them! Dr Benziger is great, and I'm so glad there is a great male Dr at Dreyer that we trust to help with our children's healthcare.

My daughter had Croup and it was scary because she could barely breathe when she woke up that morning. I was able to give her a nebulizer treatment at home, which helped, but I still wanted her seen, because when she coughed there was a little blood. Turns out it was nothing to be alarmed about. When we got to the urgent care, she started to get scared waiting for the doctor and wanted to see her regular doctor - Dr. Keith Benziger. I asked the nurse if there was any possibility he was in and if so if he could see her. It turns out he was in and could see her! We were thrilled. Everything was fine after that. He prescribed Deximethesone and saline for the nebulizer and that's it. Excellent experience, relatively speaking of her scare in the morning. However, because of his thorough explanation of what it was and what we can do, I feel confident we can handle this in the future.
