25/11/13 5 4 5 5 Dr. Binette is very caring, knowledgeable,skilled and has a great sense of humor. That is important when you are receiving bad news. Before and after my surgery, both Dr. Binette and his staff went out of their way to make me feel cared for. Very important when you are alone!  Respond

21/03/12 1 1 1 1 I ended up owing about $150.00 for one visit. My insurance covered most of my balance, however, I was billed for this amount and never was notifified by anyone of the balance owed. I found out later that my bill was sent to a collections agency. I had not idea. I think that this is very unprofessional. They could have called me and I would have made an instant payment, but they had failed to do so. I am very upset and would not recommend this Dr to anyone.

03/10/11 5 4 5 5 After trying to get a diagnosis for 5 years, I finally went to Binette and day one he made the effort (despite the appointment running really late) to find out what it was that was causing my pain and our infertility. Now we are happily pregnant and I am ecstatic to have Dr B with us through this. My husband loves him. He truly cares, doesn't hold anything back and makes the process (even the awful parts) much more bearable and fun. I couldn't do without Dr. Binette!

27/08/11 5 4 5 5 I have been a patient of Dr. Binettes for over 25years, my husband wants him to be his Doctor , this from a man that refuses to go to one. Dr. B is the most knowledgeable physician I know he explains things my other Drs. aren't able to communicate as well. He has, on several occasions, spent an enormous amount of time listening and talking with me in between seeing patients he was going in and out but his timing was amazing. He left when either I needed time to absorb or gather myself together. I came to feel if I was waiting longer than usual it was one of two reasons: 1-someone is having a baby or 2-he is in a room putting someone back together like he does with me so many times. If your crunch for time just call the office and they will let you know if he is running behind, they are really good about that. Dr. B will shoot from the hip and tell you like it is (LOVE LOVE THIS) but his nature is very gentle and calm. He has a wonderful contagious laugh and he loves a good joke.

21/11/10 5 4 5 5 Never has a doctor made a patient feel so cared for during a pregnancy or a routine exam. I even took my 3 year old to him when the pediatrician couldn't figure out why her vulva was inflammed and he solved it! I would never want to experience a pregnancy without him as my doctor!  Respond

Office staff are great Only problem is one staff member had trouble keeping her mouth shut as she worked at the hospital, too. I think she is no longer there, tho. Dr. Binette is the best.  Respond

14/04/10 4 4 4 4 Very knowledgable, however he does not do Robotic da Vinci hysterectomy. Two of my friends had that done and were home in 24 hours with no pain. In the end, i opted to go to Portland and have it done robotically. I was thrilled with the results. I would see him for routine procedures.  Respond

13/01/10 3 2 2 3 I went to Dr. Binette for years as my GP and GYN. I quit him over a year ago due to his immediate reach for the prescription pad every time I mentioned an issue. He's too busy to be a GP and should stick to OB/GYN. I'm currently attempting to get off some of the many prescriptions.

25/09/09 5 5 5 5 He is the best there is. I had issues with lab results which was done at a different facility. Dr Binette looked at them and right away knew to repeat the test. I came out fine with such relief. He takes time to explain what is wrong, very good listener and excellent adviser.

12/12/07 5 4 5 5 Dr Binette performed my hysterectomy just over two years ago. He treated me like I was the only patient that he had. My recovery time was minimal. After leaving the hospital the next day, I didn't even need to take more than Tylenol for the pain. I believe that was because he was so careful with my surgery. He answered all my questions and never once rushed me. Everybody should have a doctor like him!  Respond

24/08/07 5 5 5 5 Dr. Binette is one of the best doctors that I have ever been to. He knows you when he walks into the room without having to look over the chart. He listens to you and finds out what it is that you neeed. He doesn't push you out of the room even though he always has a waiting room full of patients! HIs staff treats you as if you are their next door neighbors, with hugs when you leave. He is always up to date on the most current treatment plans and knows when it takes just a smile to help! I will be recommending Dr. Binette and his staff for the rest of my life!  Respond

29/11/06 4 5 5 I was a patient of Dr. Binnette for 9 years. Eight years ago I moved to Florida. After the move to Florida for many years I continued to fly back to Medford to have many yearly with Dr. Binnette. He is the best of the best. Wish he'd move his practice to central Florida.

18/08/06 4 5 5 He is very ecentric and puts you at ease right away. My husband also was comfortable with him and that made all the difference to me. He is very knowledgable and also makes the time to meet with you every time you come in for a monthly pregnancy check-up. I liked being able to ask him questions instead of his nurse. If we hadn't moved away I would have him deliver all my future children.
