Went to see Dr. Bennett ONLY because of his amazing reviews. I didnt have as good of an outcome. Went to see him almost two weeks ago for my constant shoulder pain. He gave me an injection which did nothing for the pain! Told me to go to PT.of his choice! Called him back that following Monday, his nurse said "he's out today, IF he call in ill give him the message". Well i guess he's still out, because as of today, i still haven't heard back from him or his nurse!! Im glad I found another Dr. that cares!

Dr. Bennet is great but office staff is awful

Dr. Bennet himself is outstanding but his office staff is a bunch of disorganized dingbats. It's next to impossible to get someone on the phone or a call back and there's no follow thru. A simple billing issue took 4 months to straighten out and the post op rehab equipment I needed was never ordered. Not to mention when they put you on hold for 15 plus minutes the music is tortuous. ;)

Wonderful

Dr. Bennett did my husband's shoulder surgery and my knee surgery in the same year. Not only did he do an excellent job with our surgeries, but we were both very surprised with the level of interest he showed well after the surgery was complete. I had my other knee operated on by a different doctor years before who acted like I was bothering him before, during, and after the surgery. Dr. Bennett and Maggie, his PA, both showed actual concern for our progress. They were very hands-on, helpful with suggestions on how to recover faster, and it was vitally important to them that we recovered fully. His office staff is knowledgeable and friendly, the wait time is minimal, and you have their full attention while you are being examined. Making an appointment with him is extremely fast and easy. I would highly recommend Dr. Bennett to anyone who needed an orthopedic surgeon.
