    just wondering if you are a descendant of Alfredo Benabio and Maria Domenica Quilietti.

    Hi Dr. Benabio,

    I didn’t know that I had such a famous dermatologist when I was going to you at the San Marcos Kaiser facility. I was the old lady (81) that wanted to take you home but my kids didn’t want me to go with younger men and you said that was good as your wife wouldn’t let you go anyway.
    I was so unhappy when I found out you were gone and now am seeing Dr. Sharma. I like her, of course, but she’s not you. I sure miss you. I don’t know if you remember me but I’m the one who sent you home made thank you cards with my picture on them. I wish you lots of happiness as I understand that this is closer to home for you. I saw the article in the Union Tribune and was delighted to see your name and decided to look your website up. So here I am. Keep well. Flo Carvalho

  4. Hi,

    My name is Mike Hall and I have a new iphone app that I thought you might be interested in. As it just came out this week, I’m wanting to get the word out and I thought you might want a free copy to write a review for it.

    The app reminds you to take a photo of yourself everyday – then over time it creates a time lapse video for you to watch or share with a friend. It would be a fun app to use to watch your beard or facial hair.

    If you’d like a free copy of it please let me know and I’ll send you a code for a free copy. I have a face version, a pregnancy version, and a weight loss version so let me know which one(s) you’d like. Also, if you wright a review, I’d be happy to link it to my site at

    There is a one minute explanation video on our homepage that you can watch at

    Thanks – and if you’d like a free copy to review the app – just reply back to this email and ask me to send you one!

    Thanks again,

    Mike Hall
