Specialties

Dr. Gary D Bennett has the following 2 specialties

  • Pain Medicine
  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

Trusted Dr. Bennett

I want to say that Dr. Bennett has been my dr. for 7yrs. I trust this man more than any doctor I have seen, that number is in the 20's . This is a man that has gone to bat for me to get proper treatment more times then I can count. If you know anything about how insurance works you know at times this can be very difficult and most doctors I have seen at times feel it is not worth the huge amount of time it takes not getting paid to look out for what is right! Can you say that about most of your doctors? He is a man of integrity and listens. He is not there just to write prescriptions. He has always looked out for my health.

Excellent First Impretion

I went to see Dr. Bennett through Workmans Comp. he is probably the13 th or 14 th doctor I have seen. He desn't have an actual office or administration so you deal with him one on one. This is great. No middle man. When you go to see him you check in as if you were being checked into a hospital, great staff from the receptionist on up. Very friendly and caring. I saw him in the pre and post pop area. That is his office. Shows dedication. I didn't have to wait long for him. He is well educated with different pain issues. We went over my injuries extensively. There was no b.s. he is a straight shooter. Tells you like it is and very honest. This is a rare trait to have in the medical field. We figured out a game plan and discussed everything. Pro's and Con's. I like that I will be dealing with him directly. He comes highly recommended. I have only seen him 1 time so far but pan to continue with him. I am a patient that won't get any better. I just have to deal with my injuries. It is nice to know that Dr. Bennett is caring and he does have a great bedside manner.

The Doctor Who Fixed Me.

I've major issues with my stenosis, arthritis, and what not. Dr. Bennett fixed me with a few epidurals. Now, when I walk into a room, people don't think I'm badly injured anymore.
