Patient reviews for Dr. Catherine Bennet
Dr. Bennet was awesome! She was very easy to talk to and took the time to explain things in a manner that was easy to understand. Office staff was very nice and professional.
I appreciated the speed of the checkin process (including both online and then on a tablet), the courtesy of the staff, and the personable competent Dr. Bennet. (The waiting room could use a remodel, however, not well laid out, very uncomfortable and awkward space. Poor lighting in that too darn bright if you sit in the wrong chair!)
She listened carefully and clarified the common reasons of whatever I’ve been feeling. Overall, she is great!
She was smart, caring, good listener, efficient, and a lot more....
