Dr. Bennett was very thorough and took good care of me However, when trying to contact him later for a refill, I had to call 4 times and the office did not call back, except once saying they would call on a Monday. They did not. I had to connect with another cardiologist to take care of my issue. They didn't even have the courtesy of a phone call. Because of that, I have discontinued my care with him.

Dr. Bennett goes the extra mile for his patients. He takes the time to fully explain everything he is going to do and the rationale behind his decisions. His staff members go to bat for the patients with their insurance companies and make sure that the patient's needs are met.
