About Dr. Benyo

Philosophy of care

The most important thing to me is the relationship between patient and doctor. You need to be able to connect and trust if you’re making potentially life-altering decisions together. I can have all my tests and care plans ready to go but if they don’t have a relationship with me and are not comfortable with what I’m trying to do, they’re not going to follow through. So I believe in shared decision making and talking with patients about, for example, undergoing tests – whether they’ll be comfortable with the test, its possible results and what we may want to do in light of it.

It’s also important that we have a team-based practice with input from a variety of providers such as dietitians, nutritionists, nurses and physician assistants, who together help provide comprehensive care.

Why I entered medicine

I initially went into the music field and did recording engineering prior to entering medicine around age 23 or 24. But I have family in medicine – my mother was a nurse, my father is a physician, my brother is a physician’s assistant – and I enjoy helping people, whether in times of need, sadness or happiness. It’s rewarding to have people rely on you, especially as the medical field gets more complex and fragmented. I try to let patients know they have cheerleader and coach on their side.

Community involvement

I grew up in Drums, Pa., and recently moved back to the area after my residency, so I have roots in the community. I’m involved with my children’s sports activities, and we go to church as well. I’m also part of the Pennsylvania Medical Society and keep in touch with my medical school.

Personal interests

The biggest thing is spending time with my family, but I still enjoy playing guitar. I used to be in a band but now just play for myself.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
