Very pleased . Very nice lady im am pleased to have her care for my child .
Karen is exceptional. I am extremely sad to see Dr. Webster leave. However, Karen is one reason I am staying with the practice. She is so kind, compassionate and caring with me and my daughter. I always have a great experience with her.
Karen was very nice and knew what she was doing. She knew what was wrong and explained everything and helped with medication. We are very pleased with her.
Was very pleased with Karen - sad to see Dr Webster leave - but very happy with our annual visit done by her.
HAve always had Dr Webster - sad he is leaving - but really enjoyed Karen and her care!
Karen was awesome. This is the first time I saw her because Dr. Moore was ill. We are newer to the office but am overall very happy with the office staff and providers. Karen listened to me and gave me very helpful advice for my daughter. She told me straight out what she thought and didn't sugar coat anything which I love in a care provider. Would definitely see her again if needed.
I have always had a great experience with the office staff and the providers. Everyone is so helpful. That is why I drive 30 minutes to that office. Everyone has been great for the last 8 years by children have been a patient. Keep up the great work!
Wonderful experience all around. Especially loved Karen. She was easy to talk to and was kind and gentle with my son and very knowledgeable. Very happy and would definitely see her again.
very kind, compassionate and professional
Karen is amazing and I would follow her any where she worked! My daughters love her and she is very knowledgeable. I feel so comfortable with her as if I am talking to a friend and not a doctor. She is simply the best!
love Karen friendly and thorough
great bed side but appt was at 910 am at 2 pm I went to the pharmacy to pick up the prescription and it had not been called in. called the office and whoever it was that I spoke with hung up on me. finally called back after my 3 attempts to get back in touch with her and she said that the PA forget to call it in and she did apologize but really?! very frustrating.
This was the first time I met Karen or that my child was seen by Karen and I really liked her. She knew our situation and made decisions in the best interests of my daughter.
I see Karen Ann Bengel, P.A. and also Dr. Michael Webster. Usually I choose to see Karen. I have sang her praises to any/all of my friends with children, some of whom have actually switched offices to have their children seen by her. Dr. Mike is also extremely compassionate and firmly believe that he would do anything for one of his patients, but he lets the parents lead the way in their child's care, which is EXTREMELY important to me. He actually listens to my thought-process and the way that I feel that things should be handled, and then gives me his professional opinion. This office is absolutely FANTASTIC. I can't say enough good things about how they have taken care of us in my daughters nine months of life so far.
Karen is knowledgeable, compassionate, helpful and has a great bedside manner.
This care provider is one of my favorites in the office. I am so thrilled anytime I find out she will be the one seeing one of my daughters. She genuinely cares and goes above and beyond to answer any questions and provide the best care possible.
Karen was excellent!
