About Dr. James Wallace Bennett

For me, medicine has always been a wonderful combination of compassion and science. I chose pediatrics because I love being around children – they are such a joy to work with. I also work closely with parents. I don’t tell families what to do; instead I bring families into the discussion and we create plans together based on their input as well as mine. I’m a parent myself and I understand the difficulty of trying to be objective about your child. I help parents get the answers they need to make the best choices about their child’s health. Ultimately, I’m an advocate for their child’s health and an educator. I approach patients and families in the way that I would want to be approached if I was in their shoes. I bring what I’ve learned as a parent as well as a doctor, to offer solutions and options that will improve their child’s health. My patients and their families give me so much joy, and I learn from them every day.
