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 lookat 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.

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 wasscheduled 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.

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.

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 impersonaland 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!
