My doctor listens to everything I discuss with her, makes notes, and remembers things better than I can my own birthday. She always discusses all available options that she feels comfortable with me trying as well as reaching out to other specialists and physical rehabilitation clinics to help me get my mental and physical health back on track.

I'm a frequent flyer when it comes to Doctors, surgeons, Nurses, etc. I feel like this group has my healthcare needs covered, and Dr.Bennet is Knowledgable and very helpful. She is easy to talk to and she is always concerned about the other influences on my wellness. She asks questions to see if there are areas where we can adjust or change the way I have to do things. She is Top Notch in my opinion.

Very informative

I was very disappointed in the wait while at this office. I was seen 1 hour after my appointment time, then had to wait 15 minutes pasted the posted time for the X-ray tech.

I was only disappointed with the wait time to see Dr. Bennett as a new patient. [...]

1st time seeing Bennett. Took some time for her to get to my room but, I believe it is due to her being busy with the virus that is going around. Acceptable

Very pleased overall, thank you!

Dr.Bennett is a sweet person, almost like talking to a friend.

I deeply appreciate my provider. She is so much more interested in all aspects of my life (social, work, emotional) than any other physician I have seen. I am highly confident of my provider and trust her when making health decisions.

always professional , friendly, courteous.

Always get in fast and my doctor listens to what I have to say and always provides me options to move forward with!

This provider is very good, however, since my previous provider left the clinic, I had to pick a new one. It was very difficult getting in to see her. I was suppose to see her in Dec. 2017 for my first visit with her and it took me till August to get in to see her, because she cancelled my initial visit. They set me up for April, then I needed to leave town for a conference and had to reschedule. So at that point the scheduler gave me an August date, and when I questioned the length of time till the visit, she said "Well, YOU keep cancelling!" I was very put off by that, and I am really bothered by the time it took to get in to meet her, and I am also bothered that this is the 3rd time since I came to this clinic that my doctor has left and I have had to choose another doctor!

I think its hard for providers getting to know NEW patients, once she realized what my needs were, she understand and works with me. I keep her informed on new issues with specialty Doc, such as PODs or Shoulder surgeon, so she is not surprised by anything that comes up. Its called TEAM work, and she is great!

it's O.K. not bad

I find Dr. Bennett very professional at all times & very caring.

She's great. A terrific replacement for [...], my former doctor who moved to another practice and who I just loved and was heart broken when she left, but has taken over my care seamlessly and I am just so pleased because I was uncertain as to what I was going to do if my new physician was not going to be as caring and as compatible with my personality as [...] was. As it turned out, Rachel fit the bill perfectly!

excellent connection with this staff. Very helpful

I have severe mental health problems - I recently had to leave my established PCP who knew my issues and needs, and I don't feel my new provider takes me as seriously.

Dr Bennett is one of the best provider I have ever had. She listens to what I have to say.

I already recommended Dr. Bennett to my husband to change to as his PCP and he is no scheduled to do so!

My provider was very understanding of my specific issues and referred me to a specialist to guarantee I received the best possible care.

always very good

appointments are hard to get. had to wait 3 mos to see a doctor. perhaps doctor to patient ratio is to heavy

Dr. Bennett gave me the impression that she cared. She sat down in the room and went over my medical records and my comments. She was profession and through.

My experiences with Dr, Bennett has always been exceptional.

[...] Very good sensitivity of my needs as the care team drew my blood and checked in with me on how I was feeling since it took a few tries. Very courteous and thorough!

Always helpful, knowledgeable and and overall great experience every time.

Very good doctor.

Found that Dr. Bennett was extremely interested in my history and very approachable. This was a first time meeting.

I feel like the provider was condescending and sarcastic I do not wish to ever see this provider again

Dr Bennett is an excellent physician. She answers all of my questions. I am an avid reader of science and technology including genetics and biological information for fun my whole life. I have previous physicians lacking in their knowledge is answer my questions. Dr. Bennett has the knowledge, commitment and drive to keep up with my questions and medical needs.

Meeting with new provider went very well.

This provider was attentive and respectful. She listened very well and provided referrals for complaints and late routine care.

This was my first visit with this provider, On this one visit I could not ask for a better or nicer provider, she listened to all my problems but run out of allotted time. When Dousedaicon cancel their contract where I was going this provider was highly recommended to me by one of her patience.

WOW! Dr. Bennett exceeded my expectations of my first visit with her as my new PCP. I feel as if I was genuinely important to her....I have no complaints!

I have had nothing but good experiences at this clinic and staff here are top notch.
