My brother recommended Dr. Bennett to me. I am extremely pleased with Dr. Bennett, Sara and all of his staff. Dr. Bennett did an excellent carpal tunnel surgery of my left hand, and Dr. Bennett is now helping me with my right hand. When I went for a neurological assessment, the neurologist commented that Dr. Bennett’s work was excellent because it showed on my results that my right hand had healed very well.

Dr. Bennett has taken care of me before and I will always go back to Dr. Bennett and let him take care of me again. He has been our physician throughout our family for many years and all of my children and my wife have had surgeries or procedures done by him and we have never had a problem.

On the first visit Dr Bennett examined my shoulder, reviewed my MRI and report and confirmed that I had been to physical therapy. The physical findings were consistent with the reports. Dr Bennett explained the reports regarding a tear in the supraspinatus tendon and the potential for bone spurs. Surgery was subsequently scheduled and performed. Bone spurs were removed and the tear was repaired. Photos of the procedure were taken during surgery and the entire process explained after surgery. I was sent home with a bupivacaine device for pain management. Pain was controlled with the device without the need for narcotic or other pain relievers. I’m due to start physical therapy in 3 weeks.

Dr Bennett is nice but slow and I wish I could say that his staff was nice! His X-ray technician was Very rude & condescending and more concerned about eating at her desk then answering my questions! I came out of my room twice since I had been waiting over 30 min and when I asked Ricky where my Dr was she had to finish stuffing her face before she told me to go back to my room and Just wait!! Don’t think I will be returning to a staff that’s more concerned about eating on the job! Unprofessional!

Dr Bennett has been great, without question. My issue is the staff. During my last visit, they weren't ready for me and my appointment was pushed back 30 minutes with no communication. They had a sign that stated to let the front desk know if you've been waiting for over 15 minutes. I spoke to them twice to let them know. I don't mind waiting, but tell me in advance if you're not ready for me at my scheduled appointment. Keep in mind I was there before my appointment, so yes, I was waiting awhile. After my appointment was over, I was told to take the side exit. Ok. I walk out and back to the front where they are locking up. I state I need to make an appointment for a follow up and I'm told Dr Bennett's staff have left. The staff made me late for my appointment and couldn't wait until all the patients were done. I was annoyed to say the least. To add, I've tried calling Dr Bennett's office in the past and I've left more voicemails than have talked to actual people.
