“Volunteering is my way of giving back to the community. I get more from my patients than they get from me.”
Dr. Robert Bennett grew up in Richmond. He attended the Collegiate Schools on River Road and went on to study at the University of Virginia. Dr. Bennett received his medical degree from the Medical College of Virginia. He volunteered as a physician at Crossover Healthcare Ministry. He recently retired from his position as a cardiologist at Virginia Cardiovascular Specialists.
Dr. Bennett has volunteered with the Free Clinic for over 20 years and continues to see patients once a month. He is also a GoochlandCares board member. Dr. Bennett says, “I enjoy helping other people and making a positive impact in their lives.” When he is not volunteering, Dr. Bennett enjoys dancing, golfing, and woodworking. “But I most look forward to continuing my volunteer work.”
