    Long LONG wait times. I had a 7:45AM appointment and didn't get out until 10:00. Saw the Dr for a total of 2 minutes. They had a new system and I had to answer all the questions again so they could enter them in the system. Medical and family history, current prescriptions, allergies.... They have timers on all the exam room doors and they keep loudly beeping. They just reset them and in 10 minutes they all beep again. Over-scheduled, and it's like an assembly line. I just need refills!!

    I have been seeing Doctor Bently since 2011. I was referred to her by another doctor. There hasn't been one time that I have called and she hasn't worked me in with little to no wait time. This doctor I recommend all the time and have referred many of my friends! She is great, she listens and truly cares. She takes the time with you and doesn't run in and run out on you. She is not just a doctor.I consider her a friend with awesome medical knowledge. You can truly depend on her! The staff is #1!

    I would rate no stars if possible. I saw Dr. Bentley back I 2013 one time. Just recently my ob gyn wanted to refer me to her office. When I called I was told that because I had never paid a $35 co pay back in 2013 they would not schedule appointments for me EVER. I even offered to pay the balance but the staff member insisted she had "already cleared it" with tjhe dr. It almost sounds like s personal problem exists between us except that I saw her once. I recommend finding another dr. !!!!!!!!!

    I was referred to her by another friend who just got done using her. I called and stated I really needed to be seen soon, and they told me to just walk in and they'd accomadate. I waited after filling out new patient paperwork maybe 5 minutes, within 15 mins I was seen by Dr. Illescas. When I met her, she was very friendly, honest, and quick to answer my concerns. We came to a quick resolution and I was in and out, new patient, within 30 minutes total. Thats unheard of at doctors offices!
