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.

She took plenty of time to listen and discuss my health needs. I felt she was truly invested in making sure I was being well taken care in all healthcare matters.

Gynecological Problem Visit

Dr Benavides is a superior doctor. However, I had gotten a problematic return on a pap test about 1 1/2 years ago. This result was sent to my patient portal, but not directly sent to me. I had delayed my annual visit because of COVID - so when I started having spotting, I came in. I think there needs to be a change in office procedure that when a bad result comes in, the patient needs to get a call from the office. I hope everything is going to be ok.
