Dr. Bettencourt and staff did a great job making me feel as comfortable as I could be with my procedure to help with calcific tendinitis. He took the time to listen and quickly got to the root of the problem. I felt extremely confident in his hands. Office staff was also very nice.

I visited Dr Bettencourt 6 weeks after injuring my hamstring/glut attachment while running, was not healing as quickly as I’d expected. Dr Bettencourt listened to my concerns and solicited information about my previous running injuries and then evaluated & explore possible causes of the pain. It’s great to work with a doctor who understands the importance of sports to athletes of all levels and ages.

I am akin to thinking I may as well resign myself to afflictions, discomfort, or pain and “tough it out”. I finally asked for help. Found I have Bilateral Knee Osteoarthritis. After meeting with Dr. Bettencourt, for the first time in a long time, I felt heard and valued regarding my health. I was provided immediate relief. (I CAN’T BELIEVE THE DIFFERENCE after one treatment!) Dr. Bettencourt concisely explained my options, the timelines, and possibilities. I had a glimpse at a future I thought was out of my reach. I feel hopeful!

Explains everything as he did the treatment for arthritis in my ankle that developed as a result of my ankle breaking a year ago. Second treatment I've had in the last year and it feels so much better after the treatment. I highly recommend him.

Wonderful people at this the Scholls-Murray site. The receptionist was courteous and pleasant. I was brought in within 5 minutes of my appointment time. The nurse was dressed for Halloween and great. Dr. Bettencourt explained very clearly what my problem was using ultrasound images to show the arthritis. Then he gave me a steroid shot in my rotator cuff. I recommend them.

He looked at my X-rays before coming in the room to talk with me and had already made up his mind that I needed a total knee replacement. He did not give me options, was not sympathetic AND implied I could have a BMI of 40 (not even close). I got a second opinion and am not getting surgery (knee replacement should be last resort not first option) and being treated as a whole patient not just an X-ray. Won’t go back to this guy.

Dr. Bettencourt has seen me (shoulder), my wife (knee), and my son (ankle/foot) and he's been great for all of us. He has some of the best bedside manner of any doctor with whom we've met. He's friendly, polite, and listens. We highly recommend Dr. Bettencourt. :)
