Susan Bentley, DO

Personal Statement

My primary clinical interest is psychosomatic medicine. I enjoy practice in acute care settings including psychiatric emergency  services, the inpatient psychiatric unit, and providing  consultation for patients  on medical/surgical services. Working with  medical students, residents, and fellows during their clinical training has been a focus of my career and continues to inspire hope for the future  of medicine as I see their dedication to serving patients develop through years of hard work.
