Luis Bendezu, MD, FACP

Book an Appointment
Patients Say:

“Dr. Bendezu is a great doctor, a caring man and he has a keen interest in getting to know his patients on a personal level. I have been seeing him for seven or eight years and would recommend him highly to any patient looking for a physician.”

“I have the greatest and unconditional confidence in his professional and personal interest in my health and life. He shares real life experiences to assist me in making those choices. He is very supportive.”

Dr. Bendezu Says:

“Outside of medicine, I’m passionate about two things: genealogy and fountain pens. I started making a family tree after my first son was born, and what began as a small project turned into a huge undertaking! Our tree now has thousands of members and goes back to the 1600s! I even became the chief genealogist for the O’Higgins Clan in Ireland.

Over the past couple of years, our family started collecting and using fountain pens. Even my youngest has several of them. I’m happy to show you a few when you come to the office!”
