What People Say About Dr. James Bienvenu, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
Nearly a month between MRI/CT imaging, and office visit to review. He did not seem very interested in solving the problems my wife was having with bloating and abdominal pain. He lectured her to stop smoking, then dropped out of sight. Eight months later, after two ER visits, a sharp ER doctor found calcification in her mesenteric arteries via CT scan. She was very near organ shutdown by that time. Emergency surgery was done to place two stents in the arteries, and she quickly recovered.

Dr. Bienvenu has an incredible bedside manner. His staff at the clinic and endoscopy center are top notch. With such a sensitive and testing, you can fully trust Dr. Bienvenu and his staff. We have to travel out of town for our daughter's Ulcerative Colitis and I have always dreaded the day we would graduate from that practice and see an adult doctor locally who I trusted just as much as her doctor, but I have found someone! Very pleased!

Too busy performing procedures with little office time to discuss results with patients.
