Kew Gardens Hills, NY |
They always get me in for an appointment the same day. Was seen after waiting less than 10 minutes. Staff was friendly and concerned about my well-being. Doctor (and Physician Assistant) was knowledgeable and pleasant. Thanks you Dr Bennett! Will definitely be coming back if I ever get sick!!

Went to the office today for a well visit. Called this morning and got a same day appointment. The staff was great - friendly and professional. When I got there, I was brought straight into the room. The doctor was one of the best doctors I've seen in a long time. He was knowledgeable and spent as much time as I needed. Going back later with my daughter who came home complaining she isn't feeling well

Dr. Bennett is truly a wonderful doctor who cares deeply for his patients. He and his staff are professionals who really know their stuff. The short wait times are fantastic!
Rego Park, NY |
Dr Bennett has been my long time physician who is always available no matter what time of day it is. He has the most lovely staff with the utmost patience. I have had many emergencies where he is always available and he takes care of my chronic issues as well. I am very happy with my care and do not ever plan on changing doctors!
Forest Hills, NY |
I have been a patient of Dr Bennett's for years, his staff is wonderful! Ive never had a problem making an appointment for a physical or just a sick visit. Thank you Dr Bennett! Best Doctor!!
Flushing, NY |
Dr. Bennett is without a doubt our favorite doctor! He is knowledgeable and caring, and his PAs are fantastic as well. We love his office and we love his staff! My children refuse to go anywhere else for sick visits. We know we can call the office, the receptionist will tell us exactly when to come, and there is next to no wait time!! I have never sat in that waiting room more than 5-10 minutes -- and there is no other doctor's office I can say that about. In and out, and top-quality care.

Outstanding office experience from start to finish. I wish every doctor's office was like this. Great staff and knowledgeable medical team.
Flushing, NY |
I called Dr. Bennett’s office to schedule my yearly preventative exam as a new patient. I was told that Dr. Bennett is only seeing “emergency” patients and is shutting down routine office visits. I was referred to two doctors neither of whom are on my healthplan. The doctor seems to have excellent online reviews, but my experience (at least with the office staff) was unsatisfactory!
