I have full range of motion following rotator cuff surgery. Dr. Bennett and staff gave excellent care.
Sugar Land, TX |
A wait time of over one hour is totally unacceptable and disrespect to the patient. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. The nurse and PA who were not - they were abrupt and disengaged, merely going through the motions. When questioned they didn't properly listen.

I am not sure whether to go back to this doctor.

Excellent experience. Dr. Bennett was thorough, professional, very knowledgeable, and provided outstanding care, diagnosis, and guidance. I had a fractured radial head (elbow injury from fall). With expert care from Dr. Bennett, I have made very good recovery progress. If I every need such care again, I will return to Dr. Bennett knowing that I will receive the best medical care available.
