Dr. Bennett-Sims has been taking care of my family for years. It's nice to have someone that stays around and has grown with your family and makes you feel comfortable especially when dealing with your eyes. She's a very kind passionate and caring person.

I've been seen by Dr. Bennett-Sims often. I'm extremely impressed with her medical knowledge and her calm demeanor. She doesn't rush through my appointment, but rather will take as much time as necessary for me to understand my results. When she enters the room where I'm to be seen, there's an aura of confidence, as if to show that she can handle any visual issues. She is extremely thorough, and repeats tests if there is any doubt of the results. Dr. Bennett-Sims is marvelous!
