So disgusted with this doctor and her staff. Went for two small but painful vericose veins . Ended up with every vein in the legs treated and abused. Ended up with thrombophlebitis in both legs and living a life of pain. Diagnosed by another well meaning and kind doctor. They on the other hand tried to tell me it was gout!!!!! This has possibly a lifetime of flare ups . Don’t if you are thinking of vericose veins go here. They do not stand behind their mistakes and are very numb to your dilemma . There are other places to go. This has caused problems with my family doctor as well as he referred me and now he stands behind the doctor code and basically called me a liar as to the reason I visited her. Tried to change it to cosmetic reasons and gave me hell for doing it. He knew I was in pain at the referral time.

I get preventative aging botox with Montana and I truly could not be happier with the results. Her service, the knowledge, the confidence she has with her job and her absolute kindness makes it the most pleasant and comforting visit ever each time I go. I rave about this clinic all the time and I couldn't imagine any better service. I have gained so much confidence with myself with the treatments I get done. Thank you to Montana and our team!

EVLT & sclero changed my life. I have seen amazing improvements in my legs and consequently my entire quality of life. The care and aftercare provided by Dr.Bentley and her staff always makes each appointment enjoyable and her level of expertise and warm nature put me at ease (despite how anxious I was at my first visit.) Anyone considering these procedures I highly recommend contacting Dr. Bentley!

Dr. Bentley is friendly, caring, and passionate about her career. She comes across as well-educated and has very good interpersonal communication skills. She empowers her patients by giving them the information they need to make their own decisions. She has taken care of many people I know and I regularly refer people I know who may have skin conditions or varicose veins to Dr. Janna Bentley. The clinic itself is in a great location and has a variety of services offered by trained professionals. The reception team were friendly and accommodating.

Dr. Janna Bentley's response
We trust that we took care of your concerns at that time – we believe we did if we are thinking of the right case (although obviously this public forum is not for specific case details). To recap our process: if ever there is post-treatment dissatisfaction, we will to see a patient immediately (same day or next business day) and do our best to remedy the issue. As alway, we endeavor to provide the best outcome, but results may vary and cannot be guaranteed, as discussed before treatment with every patient. Yes, when not covered by MSP, the recommended treatment may be considered expensive – though the typical outcome in our experience is that patients feel the investment is worth it. However, we are confident our prices are fair compared to other credentialed physicians in Western Canada offering the same treatment – and certainly invite feedback. Finally, we invite all patients to get a second medical opinion and warmly invite patients to return with questions from that second opinion.

Entire experience with Dr. Bentley and her staff was positive. Every query you have is answered knowledgebly, before, during and after procedure. I am a nervous patient and have anxiety but Dr. Bentley and her staff constantly reminded me I was doing great - put me at ease immediately. I left knowing exactly what follow-up care was expected from me and dates when I needed to return. Received a call that evening from Dr. Bentley to see how I was feeling/any questions and told to call her # if anything came up. Efficient from start to finish. I am more than pleased with the results of my procedure and the A-one service I received. I would recommend Dr. Bentley to anyone. (Initially told Dr. Bentley my one wish was to have veins in my legs repaired so I could wear shorts - this summer I am going to wear shorts). :)
