Ratings for Dr. James Bentley
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."
Dr Bentley, done a cancer surgery, on me on Nov 5th 2014, One of the best surgeon, He was the most gentle , loving man a woman woulds want to had the best care in the area of surgery, He feels the apin and cares for his patience's as if they were his own family he was taking care of , His Wife, right hand woman by his side, she is most amazing woman , So very kind, and feels the pain as we feel it , she holds your hand and wipes away any tears they may fall from your eyes I totally love Mrs James Bentley's wife for all her care and kindness , Thank you both for all your support.

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.
