    Dr. Ruth Bentley is ALWAYS beyond kind and patient and answers all of my concerns. I am 78 years old and wish that I had found her many years ago. You are so fortunate to have her in your practice.!!!

    I have seen responding now several times twice for my daughter and once for myself. She is compassionate, curious, thorough, cared about coordinating care of my past providers, and explaining things to make for each problem I needed help with.
