I have been going to Dr. Bennett-Sims for severe dry eye and I am so pleased. I feel respected and listened to. After following her protocol and plan I have experienced significant relief from dry eye. She continues to test and examine my eyes and makes changes in my treatment and protocol accordingly. She is professional, knowledgeable AND friendly. I know she genuinely cares and I am in the best care possible!

Excellent physician. Calm, clear, professional, honest. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking a physician who is pleasant, caring, and highly attentive to overall eye health, especially in diabetic patients. I trust her completely.

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 just want to say thank you you're AWESOME!!! THE BROWN FAMILY!!!

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!

Simple cataract surgery was devastating, years later still on 4 different eye drops twice daily, one med once a day.
