Dr. Bennett takes pride in what he does. I had wrist surgery on August 10th. He explained the procedure and what to expect post operatively. He and his nurse are exceptional.

Dr. Bennett is an amazing surgeon and doctor. I have had a hand/wrist surgery and an elbow surgery done by him and each time I had a good recovery and outcome. Dr. Bennett will not rest until an optimal result has been achieved.
