Bennett Pediatrics is a practice providing primary pediatric medical care for children and young adults from birth to 21 years old. We believe that “caring for the child is caring for the family”. Our practice not only seeks to address the physical medical needs of the child, but views the child as a developing individual, growing up in the context of a family and a community.
Dr. Lorna Bennett is a Board Certified Pediatrician who has been in practice since 1994. She has a great love for children and strong sense of family. She has chosen this field because of her dedication to improving the health of children. As a woman of faith, Dr. Bennett’s mantra is to “let go and let God”.
