Dr. Jose Bendayan – Obstetrician & Gynecologist
Dr. Jose Bendayan knew very early on in life that he wanted to be a doctor, and specifically an Ob doctor.
He was born in Caracas, Venezuela, where he studied his career, and then continued on with his residency in Baltimore’s Sinai Hospital. He was recognized by his students who rotated from the affiliated Johns Hopkins Hospital, for his compassion and dedication to his career.
In 2002, Dr. Bendayan moved again to New York, hand-picked by the then Chairman of Ob/Gyn at Jamaica Hospital, who had worked alongside him at Sinai. Dr. Bendayan had made such an impact that he was offered a position as an attending physician, where he worked for seven years. His nurses and patients keep beautiful memories of his time there. He was awarded the ACOG/CREOG Award for his Excellence in Resident Education.
Because of the strong family ties, Dr. Bendayan and his family decided to relocate to Miami, Florida to be closer to cousins and childhood friends and raise their children in an environment that was more like his upbringing and roots.
Two of the signature qualities of Dr. Bendayan’s are his patience and calm, which are evident from the moment you meet him. He is soft-spoken and humble, never one to overreact, and mostly not one who wants to be in the spotlight. He sometimes agrees to be part of a televised or broadcast interview, but prefers to be the more quiet and discreet person among his all-female staff, who by the way, love to pamper and care for him, joke and laugh and share the beautiful moments that the patients give on a daily basis.
