I came in with left shoulder pain it was hard to raise my arm above my head. After X-rays Dr. Bennett showed me what was wrong and said that a shot of cortisone in my shoulder would do a lot of good and bring relief. Almost immediately I felt relief. I am suppose to go back in six weeks to look at my right shoulder for the same problem. Thanks Craig.

Recently I had my right knee totally Replaced . Dr. Bennett did an Outstanding Job. It has now been 7 weeks since the surgery and I feel absolutely wonderful with my new knee. Swimming and riding my bike again with NO discomfort at all. Next Fall I plan to have my other knee replaced as well. Also I would like to add that the you can hardly notice where my knee was stitched up with 36 staples after the surgery . An Outstanding job of closing the knee was also completed .

My son broke his patella playing basketball. Dr. Bennett did an amazing job putting the bones back together. He explained everything to us and assured me, my son would be able to play again. When we show other doctors the work Dr Bennett did on his knee they are amazed how it was lined up so perfectly. My son is back in college on a D1 scholarship playing basketball. His office staff was also so amazing through it all. I would HIGHLY recommend him.

7 years ago he diagnosed me with a bad hip & told me eventually it would need to be replaced. He suggested putting it off for 5-10 years until the pain was unbearable. I sought a 2nd opinion, and that doctor wanted me to schedule surgery for the following week. This gave me a great respect for Dr. Bennett, as he only wanted to do it when it was completely necessary. 6 months later I decided it was time for the surgery. Within a few weeks of my surgery, I am pain-free for the first time in years!

Dr. Bennett was extremely caring and professional. He performed a total reverse shoulder procedure on me after I fell and shattered my shoulder. Dr. Bennett and his staff made me feel completely comfortable in their care. I would recommend Dr. Bennett to everyone who needs orthopedic care.

Dr. Bennett performed a right total knee replacement and I was so pleased that within 6 mos of the first surgery I had him do my left knee. I could not be more grateful for a dedicated & knowledgeable surgeon. His bedside manner is so comforting during the stressful time of needing surgery. Dr. Bennett made sure the process & procedure were explained in great detail . He always made sure that my feelings & concerns were addressed. I was completely confident that I had picked the right surgeon.

Horrible person. This man ignored my father's cardiologist orders not to do surgery and my father had a stroke. Our family has suffered greatly for his mistake. There's plenty of bad reviews on the person. Do your research.

The personality of a slug. Barely see him and when I did he doesn't like having questions asked. Insults family members who ask questions. Staff looks and acts as if they hate their job. Wait time atrocious. Didn't return multiple calls about additional injury and rx problem. I received info that I should have steered clear of him from the start but it's workers comp.. 5 months of injury that shouldn't be taking this long. I finally switched and the new Dr. Is doing more in just 2 visits
