Qualifications and Experience
(As of April 2017, I have availability to see new patients for medication consultation, but I currently have no open psychotherapy appointments.) My practice as a psychiatrist focuses on long term therapy, with or without medications. I generally perform an initial evaluation over several sessions, and I do not typically prescribe medications after only one visit. I treat only adults and I do not perform evaluations for 3rd parties (disability, forensic, governmental agency, etc.) My practice as a psychiatrist and psychotherapist is influenced by an appreciation of the unique biological, psychological and social aspects that contribute to emotional well being and/or suffering of an individual person. Biological treatments like medications can be part of a solution but must be used rationally and carefully and are rarely "cures." Insight into the psychology of the individual, especially the hidden parts of thoughts, feelings and behaviors can be invaluable even if hard won in psychotherapy. Attending to one's social environment in concert with the above areas is the final part of effective treatment.

Dr was caring, understanding, knowledgeable and had a wonderful beside manner.
Dr. Bennett took time to listen to me, and I never felt rushed through the appointment like I have before.
Very insightful. Will definitely be going back.
Professional, educated, high emotional intelligence.
Such a great listener with great advice, too!
For a first visit it was good. Dr. Bennett is a good listener and gave me a few suggestions.
I am happy with the visit. Dr was knowledgeable and completely understood my issue. He was able to help me sort the problem out and provide solution.
Everything was great about the experience getting a new consultation by Dr Bennett, really nice doctor Highly recommend for anyone to get consultation with Dr Bennet. Very flexible seems to have availability for appointments with in a week or two. Very knowledgable, I am looking forward to seeing Dr Bennet in the future
The visit was excellent. I've always been terrified of going to a psychiatrist because I've always thought it would be some weird person, poking and prodding into my life and making me really uncomfortable. Definitely not, very easy to talk to and made me feel really comfortable.
This was my first appointment with Dr. Bennett, but it was a good experience. He listened well, connected the dots, and gave insightful reflections on what I was sharing. Looking forward to my next appointment.
I am trying to set an apt for Dr Bennett and there are no available appts for months. this function does not appear to be working. is there a problem with Dr Bennett's practice or availability
Very collaborative approach to patient care (which is something I value). Was running about 15min behind schedule for my first appt but still gave me my full 45min and felt like he listened very closely. Talks openly about where he feels his own limits may be and was able to work with me to set a broad treatment plan/goals by the end of the first meeting. I was impressed considering my history is rather long and, unfortunately, complicated by a number of medical issues. He has much more flexible hours for follow-up that ZocDoc may not always reveal.
My appointment with Dr. Bennet went better than expected, as I found his office to be very comfortable and the doc himself very welcoming and calming. Would highly recommend his services to anyone--especially someone like me who just had their first visit to a psychiatrist!
Dr. Bennett was very punctual. He also has a great bedside manner. I feel fortunate that we used Zoc Doc and found such a great Doctor.
Very level headed and open minded guy. Highly recommend.
Great "bedside" manner. Was seen promptly and doctor was very insightful on initial meeting.
My appointment with Dr. Bennett was great. He is a very personable professional. Someone you can trust, I'm looking forward to our next session.
Dr. Bennett is calm, warm, and caring. I felt like he was really listening to me and doing his very best to figure out an appropriate treatment plan. Highly recommended.
He was professional, asked for specific information but also gave me the opportunity to share, and offered me options with thorough explanation.
I've always had an aversion to psychiatrists because I haven't had many positive experiences working with them. However, my initial experience with Dr. Bennett was off the charts. He's the first psychiatrist I've met with that I really feel was taking time to get to know me and address my needs. He took time to explain things to me that I had questions with and I actually left the office smiling.
dont have any of your relatives die is my first bit of advice for being a patient for dr bennett, if they do, do not miss 2 appointments. i was discontinued treatment for this. i talked to an advocate for this reason and dr bennett would not return their calls. i wish i could have gone back in time and not had anxiety because i lost someone close to me. i cant recommend this doctor, i wish they had been more up front and not as sneaky about discontinuing treatment the way he did. it seemed he did so to protect himself, while not being a good man, let alone doctor.
Very insightful, very understanding. Have had many appointments with other psychologists and psychiatrists where I felt as if the doctor was distant and not very understanding. Have never felt judged or made to feel insecure about anything with Dr. Bennett, and he completely made me feel safe and comfortable talking about my issues. As a young adult going through difficulties I worried about finding the right psychiatrist to assist me through my issues, and luckily came across Dr. Bennett. Since then, it has been all good for me, and I have never been more able to deal with and handle life's issues. He takes me seriously and deeply understands what is important to my personal needs as well as my psychological needs, and most importantly addresses them. Would highly recommend to anyone, and have already done so.
Dr. Bennett is always helpful and caring.
I am very well educated (by Google) on the topic of depression before my visit. The doctor just agreed with what I told him, so I got no additional insight from him at all. He prescribed med for me and I took it with extreme side effect within 24 hours. I called his phone and left a message, but got no response at all. I suppose he only answers email.
Listened and was open to exploring ways to meet my goals as the patient but careful to guide me through the steps of staying healthy. That was my evaluation from just one visit.
The office set up is really good. I liked the privacy and easy appointment scheduling. The visit went well and I think things will do well but too soon to know for sure.
He is a very good listener and I always feel hopeful after our appointment.
Always professional, caring, helpful, and has a wonderful demeanor. My sessions with Dr. Bennett are consistently helpful, and comfortable.
Dr. Bennett is a pretty nice guy, and somewhat easy to talk to. He has useful perspectives. I didn’t personally benefit from his input, but I don’t think it was a perfect fit for me, and it wouldn’t keep me from recommending him. My reason for deducting points is that, given his profession, I’d expect him to be more accessible. I’ve never met such an inaccessible psychiatrist, from multiple missed appointments to slow response time. It was generally a positive experience and I would recommend him, but mostly to someone seeking non urgent therapy and someone not requiring medication management.
Felt very comfortable..
My visit with Dr. Bennett went very smoothly and I enjoyed talking with him, as always.

Not sure if he was the right fit for what I was looking for.
I found Dr. Bennett to be warm and comforting. He is easy to talk to, and a very good listener. I enjoyed my second visit with him very much.
I found Dr. Bennett to be very approachable. He was a great listener and ask me lots of questions about my medications and my suicide attempt. I plan to see him again next week.
great and excellent
Amazing, compassionate, professional..like it should be.
Dr. Bennett is always professional and courteous, and shows compassion towards his patients. Highly recommended.
Absolutely wonderfully. Enjoyable session. I've never been one for "therapy" or psychiatrists, but I'm looking forward to next week
Very professional he does listen to you and payd attention to your needs explakn treatment with so much detail
Excellent service. Takes time to listen and responds thoughtfully. Dr. Bennett forms treatment plans that are coordinated both from an evidence based medical standpoint and from a patient oriented standpoint. Would highly reccomend Dr. Bennett to friends and family if a need arises.
Dr Bennett has been very helpful to me and has a good approach to psychiatric care. He also answers questions between appointments via email which is appreciated!
