Dr. Bentley's bio
This content was provided by Dr. Bentley "Robert W Bentley, MD is a board certified comprehensive ophthalmologist with expertise in multiple areas including cataract surgery and medical management of glaucoma and diabetes. He was named one of Portland's Top Doctors in 2005, 2011 and 2015 by Portland Monthly Magazine. He is grateful to be part of EHNW because, "We get excellent administrative support. We have great employees and staff, and I'm given all the tools I need to do a superlative job." He finds it deeply satisfying to provide this quality, comprehensive eye care to his patients. Dr. Bentley's warm and affable manner is very comforting to his patients. He puts his patients at ease by keeping a sense of humor. "It helps break tension and improve communication; it helps the patient know that I want to work together. I want my patients to enjoy their visit." In addition to serving his patients, Dr. Bentley volunteers considerable time to leading the future of the medical profession. "I have a vision of where the medical profession should move forward. I want to cultivate and nurture the next generation of physicians that will take our place one day." He does that by serving as clinical faculty at Oregon Health Science University. And he mentors high school and college students who are interested in medicine. Additionally, as the Chair of the Board of Legacy Health Systems, he has a significant hand in the strategic planning of the organization. As a result, this has a major impact on the direction and policy of the local medical community as LHS has 7,000 employees. Direct service volunteering is equally important to Dr. Bentley. He has devoted substantial time to "Project Erase", a local program that helps at-risk youth get a fresh start by performing laser removal of gang-related tattoos. And like many of the EHNW doctors, his life has been profoundly touched by his mission trips abroad."
