Verified Patient Reviews
Explained all my post op info to me and the next steps for recovery. I was very pleased with the amount on information I received. He always has good bedside manner and is a pleasure to see.
Me dio mucho gusto ir a ver al Dr. Bennett, me gusto mucho el trato que me dio, ademas de checarme muy bien mis rodillas.
The wait was longer than my visit with the doctor. I felt rushed.
Office staff is really nice. They announced the doctor was running "late" but I was still seen within 15 minutes of my appointment time.
The staff was great. The Dr was even better. Will return and will recommend to others.
The most amazing visit I have ever had!
He was awesome! Very professional. Great bed side manners. Highly recommend him. All the ladies help calm down your anxiety.
Dr. Bennett was very professional and addressed my concerns immediately. He was a little late for the appointment due to a surgical situation which I fully understand. We will see how the treatment goes, but I think we are off to a good start.
Dr Bennett took the time to sit and explain to me my MRI and radiologist report. A good sign of a good surgeon is one that is prepared. Don't be fooled by other doctors that don't take the time to look at your MRI let alone to review it with you. I feel very comfortable with Dr Bennett performing my surgery.
I didn't have an appointment and Dr. Bennett's staff still were able to pencil me in. As soon as my paperwork was finished they got my X-rays done and Dr.Bennett visited with me and I was in and out in 30minutes. Excellent care and service.
Great doctor and staff. Highly recommend him.
Unfortunately this is a reflection of zoc doc and dr.Bennett's office. I had an appointment at 3 and I wasn't seen until 4:18. Why? Because my information from zoc doc was not sent to the office for an appointment that was scheduled several weeks in advanced. I had to re fill out all the paper work, then I had to wait no one was apologetic towards to wait I had to endure.
Informative to the point of the problem. Not the Doctor I need. Helpfull getting to the right Doctor for my problem.
Great Doc- answered my questions , showed concern, was timely. Would recommend!
Dr Bennett saw my son for his knee pain. He was very thorough with his assessment. He also spoke to my son so that he could understand what was causing the pain. I was very impressed with our visit dr. Bennett is great and the staff is very nice and helpful
Very nice. I'm used to sports injuries so I knew the drill.
Very informative would recommend him to anyone
I may have found a doctor that is going to address the issues.
Dr Bennett asked several questions and then examined my knee. There are so many places a knee can have injury but he was able to find the exact location and zero in on the problem quickly. We then discussed my options. Happy w the doc. His front office staff...not the best but it's the doc that's most important.
I've seen him before and I wouldn't go anywhere else.
Receptionist and staffs are very couteous. Dr. M. Bennett was very detail in collecting information on symptoms. Great bedside manner. Highly recommended to anyone who needs orthopedic care!
I think the doctor is very kind.
Dr. Bennett was great and patiently explained my injuries and options to me. He happily answered all my questions and did not make me feel like he was in a hurry to move on to the next patient. I appreciate his professionalism and care.
He seems very personable, therefore I have decided to trust him with my knee surgery. My husband went to the appointment with me and feel the same way.
Follow up visit after surgery; great staff that takes good care of you and Dr. Bennett is the best!
Dr Bennett was very pleasant & professional. I feel he is an excellent physician.
Fast yet attentive treatment; very knowledgable of my condition and great ability to explain the steps to healing.
Great doctor, very caring.
Very friendly staff! Was seen right away. Dr. Bennett's observations made me feel that he is quite good at his profession. I will have a follow up visit after my MRI and feel very confident that he will take great care of my knee.
Other than long wait time, I felt that Dr. Bennett was very knowledgeable and thorough and right away started on a plan of action to solve the knee issues. I came away feeling very confident and upbeat about the resolution of my pain.
He explained everything and took his time listening
I would recommend.
Very quick and to the point. But not in a way that made you feel like a number. He listened to our concerns and gave us options. Once we choose an option it was quickly expedited.
It went very well. Very professional and polite. His exam to my shoulder was thorough.
Wonderful first impression and very professional, so happy I choose him
Very nice dr.
wonderful, very efficient, very honest, recommended a nother colleague due to the nature of pproblems with my knees and allergy issues. Had steroid injections done with no problems.
The visit was fast. I was in and out in about 45 minutes including x-rays. I appreciate that they value my time so as not to sit for along time in the waiting area. All my documents that I filled in on-line were waiting for my arrival.
We definitely recommend Dr. J. Michael Bennett to those looking for the highest quality service during times when we need it the most. Our teenage son is suffering of age-related conditions that hurt him constantly. A prior specialist was impersonal and cold (even impolite), worsening our family's sadness. Dr. Bennett, however, was friendly, courteous, sympathetic, and extremely professional. We're sincerely thankful for his service and will keep our son under his great care!
Dr. Bennett told me what I needed to know who was very professional and he was very good at explaining everything that I needed to know about my knees.I like him
Dr Bennett is caring and does a great job of explaining the diagnosis and all the possible treatments and outcomes. I was impressed with his staff and how they keep him on time.
Dr. Bennett was very professional and detailed in his diagnosis and suggested treatment plan. This was very helpful in helping my son who is a young athlete understand what he needed to do to recover from his injury as well as prevent any future injuries.
I made it to the appointment 15 minutes early and didn't see the doctor till 45 minutes past my scheduled time.
Doctor was great once I saw him. Arrived on time for appointment and was seen 90 minutes later. Too long a wait
Dr. Bennett was great! He's a Dr. that actually spends time with his patient making sure you understand your diagnosis. He puts himself on the patients level, if u will. He answered all my questions and concerns patiently and thoroughly explained my diagnosis. Definitely recommend! Great staff as well! Very satisfied I choose Dr Bennett as I'm from out of state and new to this state.
Great as usual. Dr. Bennett takes the time to listen and does a complete evaluation. He always explains everything so well and makes sure you understand completely before he leaves. The nurses are great too!!
Short wait time in lobby with another short wait time in the room before the doctor arrived. Good bedside manner. The staff were friendly. Completed new patient forms online which were sent to the doctor's office. All I had to do was sign the forms when I arrived.
Very professional while remaking personable. Explained things in easy to understand terms. Office staff was great and helpful.
(Note: this was a 9am appointment.) Less than 10 minute wait, front office staff was pleasant, efficient. Very minimal wait for x-ray (<= 5 minutes), and very nice technician. The Dr was very nice, straight-forward and answered all my questions thoroughly.
Dr. Bennett was thorough and explained everything for me very well. The office staff, radiology tech, and physician's assistant were very courteous and professional.
Very pleased with the doctor and all the staff. They were very knowledgeable and helpful.
Great Ortho Doc...
It was a nice and professional experience. Dr. Bennett explain my X-rays.
I felt very confident in Dr. Bennet's thorough diagnosis and treatment options. I thought his staff was first rate. Ricki who did my xrays was wonderful and the steroid shots given by Maggie were not painful as I was expecting. I will continue with them for treatment and when I do knee replacements, I will confidently put myself in their hands.
Good experience overall. Once I got in, it was pretty quick. I will definitely use this dr again for any future orthopedic needs.
My appointment was delayed for one hour because Dr. Bennett had an emery surgery to perform. Other than that, everything went well.
Dr. Bennett and staff are caring, helpful and courteous. The doctor is very knowledgeable and offers many options. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing an orthopedist.
He was direct and to the point
Dr. Bennett and his entire staff are very professional, sincerely caring, efficient, upbeat and smiling. I would highly recommend this medical facility for your orthopedic needs.
I really liked Dr Bennett. He took time to explain my condition and what my options are. Everyone was very courteous and professional.
Appt at three finally see doc at 4:30 not good
Very professional doc and office staff.
Friendly staff and Dr. Bennett was very thorough and prescribed the propoer treatment...very good over-all experience.
He reminded me somewhat of Dr. Oz. Very easy to listen to and made me feel that I was his sole patient. His staff was relaxed yet paid attention to detail with their taking care of business.
Excellent Doctor with Excellent Supporting Staff!
It was refreshing to see a doctor whose professionalism cooperated with his personal manner. He asked good questions, persisted even though he thought his treatment was unlikely and recommended a course of action that made sense considering the circumstances. He provided a level of comfort that is uncommon in the medical profession. I would recommend him to anyone who needed orthopedic advice. Thank you, Dr. Bennet!
Overall, very good. Nurse was attentive, too. Next step - sending to MRI- was as I expected.
Great doctor. He took the time to answer all of my questions, address my concerns and determine a treatment plan.
Satisfied apart from unfortunate wait, would see this doctor again.
Staff was very friendly. First visit so not fair to evaluate Bennet's competence. Office seemed very backed up.
This was my first time with Dr. Bennett...he was very professional and I like the fact that surgery wasn't his first option on my knee. I like that!!
I hold him in high esteem. Have had two successful surgeries from him in the last 5 years.
Efficient and thorough. Highly recommend
Everyone was really friendly, and knowledgable. Overall great visit.
Took me 30 min to find 4690 S, need to identify bldg. #, advertise office outside of bldg., Thought he rushed through visit for my first visit.
Fast and efficient!
Entire office was caring and interested in helping you get better. Dr. Bennett was very professional and took the time to understand my situation. Feel very optimistic that I am on the road to healthier knees!
Excellent - provided several options as next steopfor my elbow, after confirming no fractures or other issues.
Dr. Bennett is fantastic. He diagnosed my problem very quickly and was spot on my symptoms. Dr. B rocks.
Excellent Doctor! Didn't feel like a number or just another animal. He listened to me and was very patient. Seems to be concerned about his patients.Highly rrecommend this doctor!
Dr. Bennett and his staff were VERY pleasant, thorough and competent. They spent time making sure there were no remaining questions or concerns. My visit was really good.
Both Dr. Bennett and his staff were informative, helpful, and friendly. I would highly recommend his practice.
Thorough Excellent Knowledge Personal Enjoying
Great experience! Dr Bennett was attentive and addressed all of my issues! Staff was friendly and professional!

He is very nice and I would use him anytime
Excellent in every way. The staff were superb.
Dr. Bennett was very thorough and he listened to me carefully. He answered all of my questions and was very attentive to my injury. I would recommend him to anyone I know.
My visit with Dr. Bennett and his staff was great!!! Could not have asked for a better experience.
Total confidence in him as my doctor
I really liked him and I will continue as a patient!
I got my prescription in the morning, found a possible error and called the Dr's office at noon to inquire. I was told someone would call me back, but no one did.
He is extremely knowledgeable and definitely has a lot of experience in his field .I was very comfortable with his explanations and his attention to detail. I will use him again and highly recommend him for any orthopedic problems anyone may have. Maggie, his PA, is also well informed in regards to care after the initial surgery and explains everything in detail. I am so glad my MD recommended this outstanding physician!
He understood what I wanted And gave me options. Quick and painless with no BS
VERY thorough and took the time to explain my injuries, causes, and treatment plan. The staff was extremely friendly, professional, and kind- from the woman behind the desk, to radiology, to Dr Bennett and Maggie, his PA. I also love being able to schedule via ZocDoc. So fast and convenient! I was also seen at my appointment time and not made to wait 1-2 hours like I've experienced with other physicians. I greatly appreciate this!
