    in Franklinville, NY |
    very professional and focused. excellent results with the surgery and rehab. I had the PRP procedure and would recommend it and Dr. Bennett to anyone.
    in Bradenton, Fl |
    Dr. Bennett is an exacting diagnostician and brilliant surgeon. He performed arthroscopic surgery to repair my torn rotator cuff and I opted to have PRP treatments to inhance both the cellular repair of my rotator cuff and my knee as well. I'm now pain free and back to playing golf again. Dr. Bennett has a fantastic support staff. Henry makes appointment scheduling and insurance submission seamless. Mia provides the full physical therapy that one needs to regain strength & flexibly.

    I highly recommend Dr. Bennett. I came to him with an ACL/meniscus tear. He performed outpatient surgery and my knee is better than it was before the injury. Recovery was very quick.
    in Tampa, FL |
    Dr Bennett was always on time and very professional dealing with. My knee surgery went great with very minimal amount of pain. The healing process was very short. Totally would recommend Dr Bennett to anyone
    in North Port, FL |
    Dr. Bennett repaired my badly damaged dominant shoulder during July, 2015. Since I am an active senior; one who enjoys swimming, scuba diving and dancing, I elected to have PRP injected during surgery. I was surprised at how minimal the pain and how quickly the healing post operative. I researched many Orthopedic physicians and selected Dr. Bennett due to his extensive PRP experience and medical background. Dr. Bennett is a brilliant Orthopedic surgeon and one I would highly recommend.
    in Apollo Beach, FL |
    He gave me prescriptions which interact with the present medications I am taking. I spoke to a pharmacist at Express Scripts and found out that one would raise my blood pressure, and the other one would interfere with increasing my intake of digoxin which would be a serious matter. He is very cold, and rude. I would highly recommend you seek another orthopedist, and regardless who you choose, I would suggest you call your pharmacist first.
    in Palmetto, FL |
    Dr. Bennett repaired my severely damaged shoulder. I would highly recommend him to others. He has exceptional communication skills. He readily explains your options and the procedure he is recommending and why. His manner with patients is interactive and he actively follows your progress and recovery. He is the only orthopedist in the area that I am aware of that uses stem cell and PRP.
