Outstanding care provider
in Salt Lake City, UT |
Dr. Bennett is my primary doctor, who I found through a reference from a radiologist friend close to 30 years ago. He is very personable, and always available when you require his services. I enjoy his mannerisms and trust him with any medical issues that have occurred through the above years. I would recommend him to anyone looking a for great primary doctor! Jerry Nordyke
Even as a first time patient I felt that Dr. Bennett was interested in me and my health issues. He made me feel comfortable and not at all intimidated. I like a Physician that is low key in his personal approach and yet very knowledgeable about my health issues. I felt Dr. Bennett was that kind of Physician.

Rick is smart and considers all possible causes of the symptoms presented. He never seems in a rush and takes whatever time is needed to explain his diagnosis and treatment recommendations

He is caring, & takes the time to listen to your concerns. He has never let me down in the approximate 17 years I have been seeing him. If your sick, he works around his schedule to see you. His staff is also amazing.

I called last week to make a new patient appointment as my insurance said that Dr Bennett takes my new one. They asked for all my information including medication. They were about to schedule my appointment and said never mind I cant schedule the appointment till Dr Bennett reviews your medication . I have yet to hear from them. I have never had to deal with something like this in the past. I wont be going to this Dr Office if it depends on my medications to be a patient.
Thank you for bringing this matter to our attention. Your experience with our clinic is of the most utmost importance to us and we are concerned with your encounter with our office. I would like to speak to you personally and see if we can still take care of you and your grandfather. You can reach me at 801-572-0311 or at Teresa.meyer@hcahealthcare.com

Because he's listed as accepting new patients, I called Dr. Bennett's office to set an appointment for my elderly father. Before they would set the appointment, they asked for his medications list and said Dr. Bennett would review it before accepting him as a patient. Two days later, I received a voice message saying that he would not be able to accept my father as a patient at this time. Four other internists I called didn't do this kind of screening prior to setting an appointment. Ridiculous.
We are very sorry to hear about this experience in our practice and would like to look into it further. Please call our practice manager, Teresa, at 801-572-0311 so that we can get further information to address the situation.

Dr Bennett was our family Doctor for about 20 years. Due to insurance changes I had root switch doctors. Dr Bennett always made time for me, very thorough and simply put the best Doctor I have ever had. I would highly recommend Dr Bennett as a personal physician for all types of illnesses. I sure miss him and his staff (they are completely awesome also. Maybe some day I can go back to him. Thank you for all you did, Chantal B.
