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.

I'm not exaggerating when I say that Dr. Bennett is, without a doubt, the best doctor I have ever been a patient of. I am taken aback by his knowledge, concern, reassurance, and I good-natured demeanor every time I come in for an appointment. I recommend him to anybody that will listen.

The provider and his assistant were wonderful and give me all the data needed to understand my issue. They explained my choices and what may or may not be helpful. I had questions and they were ready to answer me with direct answers that I understood. They were friendly and helpful.
