As a young woman, I rarely see male doctors out of fear of being subject to micro aggressions about my appearanceand profession. I had high hopes for Dr. Bentley considering his great reviews. I was disappointed. He made unprofessional comments about me being "young and attractive" and subtly sexually charged comments about my profession. He also offered little to no actual psychological guidance.

Nice guy, maybe not the best doctor. He was certainly there to help, but often didn't know what to say. He was very laid back, but a but unprofessional for my liking. Not my style, I'll keep looking

Dr. Bentley is absolutely amazing! He listens. He understands. And he empathizes with you and your experiences. I was a bit reluctant to therapy but he welcomed me with open arms and encourages everyone to live beyond your experienced pain and trauma. What an amazing Doctor!!!!
