About Lorena Benavides:

Dr. Lorena Benavides (Lo) grew up in the South Texas town of Laredo with her brother and two sisters. She comes from a medical family, as her father and brother are both practicing obstetrician/gynecologists. After graduating as the valedictorian from United High School in Laredo, Lo left Texas to attend Princeton University. She went on to medical school at Columbia University in New York and her residency in obstetrics and gynecology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Lo then completed an advanced pelvic surgery fellowship at Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas, Texas. She began her practice in Raleigh in 2006 at the completion of her medical training.

Her special interests include minimally invasive surgery, surgery for incontinence, gynecology for women of all ages, and approaches to healthy living. She is fluent in Spanish and welcomes patients who may be looking for a bilingual physician.

Dr. Benavides and her husband Dr. Robert Marshall (an anesthesiologist in Raleigh) are the proud parents of two girls, Emma Rose and Charlotte. Dr. Benavides enjoys running and participates regularly in area road races. She and Robert love taking the girls on trips to the NC coast, New York City, and back home to Laredo to visit her family.

While I'm an established patient at this practice, this was my first time meeting with Dr. Benavides (my previous provider retired). I really appreciated the time Dr. Benavides spent discussing the woes of menopause and offering solutions!

Dr. Benavides takes time to engage, listen and understand. Most competent and caring. I travel over 100 miles to remain her patient!

New Patient Visit

Very personable and engaged. She took time and made an effort to get to know me and establish rapport.

Annual Well Woman Exam

Dr. Benavides has an excellent bedside manner. I never feel rushed during my appointments with her. I had a few questions regarding my current BC and she took the time to listen to all of my concerns, without interruption, and then thoroughly addressed these concerns and reassured me that I was on the correct medication. She also made suggestions for future tests just as a routine screening to make sure there are no underlying issues, but did not pressure me into getting these tests right away. She noted she would get the costs of such tests and she promptly did so, providing me that information within an hour of leaving the appointment.
