Patient Comments (4)
New Castle, DE |
My mom had her first appointment this morning with Dr. Bennett. Dr. Bennett is wonderful. He was more helpful in 15-20 minutes than most of the doctors she has seen in the last month. He was straight forward and pleasant. He listened to us and explained what needs to happen now to understand what is going on with her. He is a professional and it shows. The wait was long only because he takes the time to talk with patients. Dr. Bennett is very involved. Staff was friendly as well.

Dr. Bennett seems OK, but the customer service of the office staff is so atrocious that I will never return.
PA |
I know that Bennett has a great reputation, but I find him to be condescending and arrogant. His whole attitude is "I cannot be bothered with your petty ailment". He is rude beyond belief and does not listen. Never again. Hard to believe he is in the same practice as the wonderful Dr. Abdel-Misih.

Very good in explaining things clinically. Some may be put off by this but this is medicine we are talking about and how it can affect the patient. Does not guess what is going on but does a good evaluation. Does not create false expectations. Upfront with decisions but is open to discuss other methods or procedures and makes sure the patient understands. Can tell he cares about his patients by manner of discussion and is engaged with the patient. Would've liked more post op discussion.
