in Church point, la |
There are no words to describe how my family feels about Dr Bennett. This man is so skilled, kind, compassionate and caring. My 12 year old grandchild had surgery July 31 2017. While in ICU during the times she woke she asked to see dr Bennett. Each time staff came in she declared: your NOT dr bennett I want dr bennett! immediately upon hearing this he went to her bed side. With tears in her eyes she said I just wanted to say thank you. ?? Dr bennett truly cares about his patients.

Dr. Bennett is compassionate, thorough with his explanation as well as breaking down the information so that my 15 year old son could understand and visualize exactly what his scolisis diagnosis and treatment plan entails. He spent 10 extra minutes with me and my son reviewing his xrays and explaining in detail the positives for wearing his braces as directed and the negative possiblities if he doesn't wear brace as directed. I highly recommend Dr. Bennett and staff 100%!!! Very satisfied!!!

I saw the above negative comment made about Dr. Bennet, pay no attention. We loved Dr. Bennett. He took his time with my son and was very thorough in his examination and annalysis of his x-rays. He explained the surgery in detail and gave us a folder of information about it. My son had his surgery last Monday (April 11th) and got home from the hospital yesterday. He is already walking around!!!!! He also gained 2 to 3 inches in height. In 6 months he will be fully healed.

I drove and hour to see him then I waited over 3 hours in a hot room with my 4 yro and 2 yro no air condition for him to walk in and say I can't do this today you can come back next week!!!!! All because his staff scheduled us wrong Needles to say I had a few words for him and have never returned. He might be a great surgeon but he is a horror of a human being.I would never subject my children to him again to many good doctors in the the area who know how to treat a person 0 stars I give !
