great visit.. doctor diagnosis something we did not know he had
Dr Bennett has been my sons primary care since 2014. She is great with the kids, even the squirley ones! She takes great care with all of your concerns and doesn't just brush them under the rug.
This provider was extremely good with my child and was very helpful. She takes the time to explain anything I need to know and give ideas on how to take care of the problem at hand. Definitely the best doctor I have taken my kids to.
Dr. Bennett is wonderful, always listens and hears you! Takes her time and is very caring with my kids.
Both my 5 year old and my 9 month old have seen Dr. Bennett since birth, and I wouldn't consider going anywhere else! We love Dr. Bennett and her staff!

SHE TRULY cares about not only my child but me and my family. Always has a great smile for us. When things are rough her words of encouragement are always positive.
