I had a wonderful experience on my first and follow-up visit to Dr. Bennett's office. The staff were very friendly and professional. The Doctor listened to my concerns and treated me accordingly. Thanks.
Dr. Clarke-Bennett was very friendly, showed concern for my overall well-being as well as for my family members, and was able to guide me for further treatment from a specialist.
She saw me quickly and as always made me feel very comfortable.

She was great! I will be going to her from now on, her staff is great too! I have been looking for a doctor like her for a long time.
The visit I had was phenomenal, she is a very friendly Doctor, she answered all of my questions, and gave my feedback. I really like her, and also will consider her being my PCP!
she was very nice, & explain everything in good details.
Dr Clark was patient with me and worked through my symptoms with a quick diagnosis. She is a great doctor.
Well I thought when you ask for a yearly check up they check the whole body. My concern was that she didn't do my Gyn check up, or let me know about my blood test results. I couldn't make my appointment so I thought she still would give my results. That wasn't professional.
I liked it OK, I preferred her assistant. She was very personable and warming.I didn't really like the way the Dr looked at me. She just didn't seem really concerned. She asked me why I chose her office, and not in a very welcoming manner. It was more like she didn't really want me there. No thank you, glass you chose us, nothing!! Not sure that I will go back. With the way that I feel I need someone that appears to be concerned. It was just an OK visit.
Dr. Karen Clarke-Bennett, DO was very thorough in doing my evaluation. I was so tired of doctors just throwing prescriptions at me ---that was certainly not case here. She has amazing bedside manner and very concerned about my overall well being. I have already recommended her to a friend.
Dr. Clarke-Bennett is an excellent physician. However, it's important to be mindful that she does not run a traditional office. A Better You is a medical spa. Primary and urgent care patients don't appear to be a priority (the wait time was noticeably longer for primary care patients during my last appointment). There's more of an emphasis on selling products; cosmetic treatments and procedures; and other services that are unlikely to be covered by insurance.
I'm one of those people that really hates going to the doctor. My blood pressure spikes, I sweat; not a pretty picture. Dr. Clarke-Bennett quickly changed that. Without a doubt, she exhibited the best bedside manner of any physician that I have ever encountered. The aesthetics of her office, her demeanor; everything is tailored to set you at ease. She was able to advise me on a number of secondary and tertiary issues related to my visit, in a calm, professional, affable manner. I would absolutely recommend that anyone looking for a new primary care physician consider making an appointment with her office.
Dr. Clarke-Bennett was really patient and attentive to my needs. I really appreciated that she listened to my concerns and her advice really alleviated my stress. I would highly recommend her.
I absolutely love Dr. Clarke-Bennett! She is extremely knowledgeable, patient and encouraging. After several years of searching, I've found my new primary care doctor. Appointment and wait times are quick and her hours of operation fit well with my busy lifestyle. I am very pleased with her office and her ability to integrate holistic recommendations into my treatment. I recommend her to everyone.
Very nice. Listened to everything I needed to say about my health issues and was willing to work with me. I've decided that she will be my doctor.
It was my first time there was nervous and she tired to calm me down, she talks to her patients and make sure they understand what's going on.
The visit with Dr. Clarke-Bennett was truly enjoyable. She really put me at ease during the interview and consultation. Her assistant Trish was very cordial and helpful. I am looking forward to my next visit Very pleasant site and location.
I was immediately greeted from the staff and within 10 minutes I was in a waiting room. The atmosphere gives a warm and calming effect, unlike any dr.s office I've been to. Dr. Karen Clarke-Bennett did not make you feel rushed, and seemed very genuine!
I was amazed by the office it's well put together and comforting . If you are nervous about a doctors appointment the atmosphere of the place will put you at ease . The staff members were very polite and friendly . They greet you with welcoming smiles . Dr. Karen Clarke-Bennett was so knowledgeable and helpful . I did not feel rushed or anything unlike most doctors visits . I can see myself returning for future care . I took a 40 minute drive and it was well worth it .
The atmosphere was fantastic. She was very nice and friendly.
My first visit to Dr. Clarke - Bennett ' s office was by far one of the best visits I ever had. We spoke for more than a half hour. She actually cared about getting to know me to better assess my needs. She took me on a tour of the beautiful facility. She called me a few days later (on a Saturday afternoon) to see how the new medication was effecting me and to check on my progress. Since my visit to Dr. Clarke-Bennett's office I have taken her concerns with my blood pressure very seriously and have since undergone a lifestyle change. In 8 days I lost 6 pounds and my blood pressure has went down some. Although I am not an overweight person, the shedding of the pounds has had a noticeable effect. I feel soooo much better! I don't normally write reviews but I had to in this case. I highly recommend this Doctor!!!!
Couldn't have asked for a better first contact with a new health care provider.
I am pleased with Karen Clarke-Bennett's first visit. As I related to her, it is important to have a hospital that she is connected with.
Dr. Karen Clarke-Bennett was very nice and professional. She listened and took her time with me. Her office atmosphere was very relaxing.
Dr. Clarke-Bennett and Tricia are awesome! I love relaxed atmosphere when entering her office and not feeling the usual stress of being in a traditional assembly line doctors office . I was impressed at how she was very patient and took her time with listening to my concerns. She respects and understand my thoughts about prescribed medications. There were extra test that I was surprised and glad that she did, such as levels of vitamin D and B. A Better You also offers other medical and spa treatments that I will be trying. I've had a hard time keeping up with my primary Dr as she keeps moving to different locations, Dr. Clarke-Bennett will be my primary Doc now!
The place was like being at a spa resort relaxation moment only thing is that her landlord need to put address on the door were clients will find the office so they wouldn't miss this beautiful atmosphere.
She is very friendly.
