Ratings for Dr. James Bentley
Had to see Dr. James Bentley as my surgeon is out of the office until May. When I called to booked, I was put in right away. I was nervous as he was new to me...once in the office my mind was put at ease. He was so understanding, very patient and extremely knowledgeable. His nurse was amazing.
Dr. Bentley has always been very professional,respectful and patient. I appreciate that he always explains what he is doing and why. When I required a surgical procedure, he was wonderful about explaining what would happen and answering questions during followup during my hospital stay and beyond. He also took the time to check in with my husband after the procedure and again when complications required a second surgery the same day. Dr. Bentley's support of both patient and family helped make a stressful time more manageable.
In my short acquaintance with Dr. Bentley, I found him to be a kind and caring physician. He is very relatable and has a good, wry sense of humour. I will quote from an earlier "rater" who said it very well, "...I was very lucky to have this brilliant, kind physician perform my surgery. Patients are treated with kindness & respect by his team."

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.
