Dr. James Bentley's Ratings
I found Dr. Bentley caring, funny and professional. He is very knowledgeable and knows what he is doing. He saved my life and I am grateful he preformed my surgery. I cannot imagine how difficult it is for him to tell most of his patients they have cancer...... He also has a team of wonderful young interns and residents who were all outstanding .... I hope these young doctors all stay in Nova Scotia.
Found no compassion from this doctor. Told my daughter she had months to live and slipped out the door. I don't know how these other people found him so wonderful & caring. It must have been his twin. Our daughter has since passed away, however, as a mother, I will never forget that day and how this doctor showed no empathy for my daughter or myself.
On Sept,2012 I was excited to know I was having my surgery in Halifax, and to find out I was having one of the best Doctors in this field made my stress level drop. I was honored to have Dr. Bentley as my surgern,and he is a great asset to the Victoria General. To me he is best described as: dependable,remarkable,professional,and someone my family, and I will not forget.
I felt there was no empathy shown for my daughter with stage 3 cancer or myself as a parent. I felt optimistic at the beginning of the diagnosis & then suddently everything seemed to change very quickly with no positive treatments offerred. I wish he could put himself in my place as the parent when bluntly told she had one year then seem to quickly sneak away out the door away from you. I felt he never offerred any real postive words of encouragement,sympathy, or understanding. Very upsetting for my daughter and myself; leaving her feeling "hopeless". I feel it is so important to keep positive, however, we were left with a feeling there is no hope.... "Merry Christmas" to you, doctor and I wish you could have an understanding of how we feel this Christmas.
Dr. Bentley is one of the best obyn/oncologists in North America. He is a superb diagnostician & surgeon & I was very lucky to have this brilliant, kind physician perform my surgery. Patients are treated with kindness & respect by his team.
