Dr Bennett took a great deal of time to address my many questions and to explain his perceptions of my problem . He had a full waiting room but did everything possible to cover every concern I had even though I see he works under a great deal of pressure. He is always kind , very attentive, and also has the demeanor of a gracious gentleman even when there are many demands on his time.

Dr. Bennett is the best...very caring and concerned for my chronic ear issues. I also appreciate that he is conservative in treatments, not rushing out to get every test/scan available. Great combination to make a wonderful doctor.

I was kind of put off by the fact there was comparison of his child with normal hearing to my child with a hearing deficit and the need for the procedure at hand.
