The practice he founded will continue his legacy of caring led by his partner, Dr. Mobeen Choudhri. Dr. Benhamou was one of the most interesting people you would have ever met. He was an avid world traveler with a passion for airplanes and an unparalleled thirst for knowledge. In addition to his professional accomplishments, he was an avid reader and was fluent in English, French, Spanish and Portuguese. He lived his life to the fullest, and took pleasure in the happiness and joy of others. He was most devoted to his family. Cleide was his great love, and his children were his proudest achievement. He was happiest travelling with his family, and made sure his wife and children never wanted for anything. He helped countless people recover from and manage chronic pain, and was a loyal friend to so many. All who met him fell in love with him instantly. He made everyone's life better simply by being around him. He was always willing to help a friend, and was someone everyone could count on. Dr. Benhamou is survived by his wife, Cleide, his daughter, Luna, his two sons, Thomas and William of Sharon Lederer, as well as his mother and two sisters.
