Sep 8, 2011 – DOCTOR SIN MODALES NI EDUCACIN
Hace unos das tuve la terrible decisin de un aborto, y acud a esta clnica, la enfermera q me atendi por telfono al hacer mi appoinment fue muy amable y me sent confiada al elegir este lugar. Cuando llegue me atendi otra nurse, pero esta fue rude y poco amable, pens que tal vez tena un da malo, espere me turno, y al entrar a hacerme el ultrasonido, el doctor Betancourt entro sin presentarse, muy fro, muy grosero, sin decir una sola palabra, creo uno como persona tiene derecho a ser tratado como tal, y a veces uno tiene que tomar decisiones muy fuertes, pero no quiere decir que seamos malas personas, esto ha sido muy duro para mi, y con ese trato me hicieron sentir peor que un asesino, en todo momento el doctor no tuvo un gesto de amabilidad y creo que uno como paciente y el con la profesin que tiene, no es para que trate a la gente as. Ojal y haya alguien que regularice el trato doctor-paciente en clnicas y se mejore este sistema, yo no quiero ni volver al follow up, para chequearme…mujeres no acudas a esta clnica.
Jul 23, 2011 – THIS “DOCTOR” IS A JOKE.
I feel extreme pity for anyone who happens to have Dr Betancourt as their MD. I wish I would have read these accurate reviews before going through with this procedure. I just had to google his name after my appointment to make sure he is even a legit doctor. Extremely rude. Extremely ignorant. Callous. Arrogant. He came into the room, didn’t introduce himself, & had an expression of pure disgust on his face. I don’t even think he looked at my face one time while speaking. I was obviously very nervous & my only question before the abortion was “is it common for patients to leave here still pregnant?” and his response was “Yep. If you move at all. And since you chose the IV sedation you’ll probably move without knowing it, so if you hear me yelling at you, then you better stop moving”. Luckily the nurse was in the room for the procedure, and she was very kind. I have no idea how any of the clinic staff can stand to be around that man. I seriously hope he reads these reviews on him and realizes what an awful “doctor” he is. If I had to guess, I’d say he is anti-abortion & chose this practice to torture any woman who defends her right of choice. Utterly shocked and disgusted that this man has a license to practice.
Jul 19, 2011 – COLD
I went to the clinic for an abortion. Yes the procedure is frowned upon and an extremely hard decision but I had no other choice. Dr. Betancourt was very quiet, not friendly in the least bit, wasn’t very informing, tried to “scare” me with the things he told me, and very cold. The best word I can think of to describe Betancourt is cruel. He asked for any questions and my main question was the risks, “I’ll get to that,” was his response, “don’t move, otherwise I’ll cut through your uterus.” I asked if that was common, “it is if you move, it will happen,” was his response. As nervous as I already was this had made it twenty times worse. Throughout the procedure he did not say one word, the nurse was more sympathetic to me, held my hand. After it was done he ripped untensil out of me and as he was walking out “I hope i didn’t hurt you too much,” with a smirk on his face. I wish I would have done research on this doctor before I saw him. I would never wish this kind of treatment on anyone, espcially under the circumstances.
Mar 2, 2011 – DR. BETANCOURT = COLD, HEARTLESS, MEAN
Never in all my life have a met someone (especially a doctor) who was this mean. He refused to look at me or even talk to me. When he did speak to me, it was because he was yelling at me to relax. He has ZERO bedside manners. I just don’t understand how a doctor can be so mean to a patient, and a PAYING customer. During the procedure, he and the nurse carried on their own conversation as if I wasn’t even in the room. He should not be practicing. He is so cold and hateful and being in an exam room with him is horrible. Something I will never forget. I hope many people see the reviews on this man and go to another doctor. Please stay as far away from him as you can.
Oct 9, 2010 – SHOULD NOT BR PRACTICING
I was referred for an abortion to Betancourt’s Sarasota location. His staff was moderately concerned and sympathetic considering the nature of the clinic. I understand it is easy to become desensitized after working in this field for many years. However, Betancourt has NO bedside manner. He never introduced himself, did not make eye contact and barked commands, “Untie this…untie this!”(refering to the strings on my pants. “Move down, move down” He was harsh, disconnected, and if one believe’s in a soul, soul-less. I began sobbing on the table during the procedure only to hear, “TILT your butt down, keep it down!” “Move down!”. I wasn’t expecting a parade for the event, but a subtle touch of humanity goes a long way. I’m not livestock, I’m a person.
Mar 21, 2008 – DR. BETANCOURT IS A COLD HEARTED PERSON AND SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO PRACTICE
I had a procedure done by fernando betancourt, he did not speak 1word to me, one of his nurses checked my blood to see if I was rh-to determine whether I needed an extra shot before having an abortion, they told me it was negative, I literally had to argue with the staff b/c I knew I was rh-, after re-checking my blood (she had my blood all over her fingers and no gloves) they said “oh your right, its going to be another $50) having an abortion is a horrible decision to make, he doesn’t even speak to the patients, at my checkup he said “your bladder isn’t full like they said it should be” he was obviously very anger and walked out of the room. I’m young i was scared and actually had some complications but wasn’t given the opportunity to talk about them. He is a very angry and cold person and obviously has done this procudure one too many times and by looking at him you just can tell that he’s not a good person. Most of his staff is the same way. They first want you to pay, then in and out. Before you have it done, they say there is a recovery room that you are welcome to stay in as long as you need. As soon as I had it done, I was still very out of it and I asked for the recovery room b/c i wanted to make sure everything was okay, instead they pretty much pushed me back to the exit and grabbed my husband. I am sure that if you did the research on this dr. you will find tons of things wrong so if your trying to make a decision i would first say don’t have an abortion but if your goign to see someone who actually gives and ounce of care to you

Foundations in Biblical Eschatology
By Jay Rogers, Larry Waugh, Rodney Stortz, Joseph Meiring. High quality paperback, 167 pages.
All Christians believe that their great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will one day return. Although we cannot know the exact time of His return, what exactly did Jesus mean when he spoke of the signs of His coming (Mat. 24)? How are we to interpret the prophecies in Isaiah regarding the time when “the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea” (Isa. 11:19)? Should we expect a time of great tribulation and apostasy or revival and reformation before the Lord returns? Is the devil bound now, and are the saints reigning with Christ? Did you know that there are four hermeneutical approaches to the book of Daniel and Revelation?
These and many more questions are dealt with by four authors as they present the four views on the millennium. Each view is then critiqued by the other three authors.

Exposing The Occult Roots of Abortion
This presentation looks at the spiritual roots of abortion and exposes the myths surrounding child killing. Little known historical facts about abortion and how they relate to modern feminism are presented logically and accurately. Has been effective in converting many to a pro-life position.
Massacre of Innocence goes where no pro-life presentation has gone before in “tearing the lid off abortion” to reveal the spiritual realities we must battle if we will bring an end to this crime. The presentation is absorbing, fast-paced, informative and incredibly devastating to any attempt to justify abortion.
“… an extraordinary statement … a powerfully articulate presentation about what abortion really means, and why a great and moral nation like the United States must not allow the slaughter to continue.”
— Congressman Robert K. Dornan

Just what is Calvinism?
Does this teaching make man a deterministic robot and God the author of sin? What about free will? If the church accepts Calvinism, won’t evangelism be stifled, perhaps even extinguished? How can we balance God’s sovereignty and man’s responsibility? What are the differences between historic Calvinism and hyper-Calvinism? Why did men like Augustine, Luther, Calvin, Spurgeon, Whitefield, Edwards and a host of renowned Protestant evangelists embrace the teaching of predestination and election and deny free will theology?
This is the first video documentary that answers these and other related questions. Hosted by Eric Holmberg, this fascinating three-part, four-hour presentation is detailed enough so as to not gloss over the controversy. At the same time, it is broken up into ten “Sunday-school-sized” sections to make the rich content manageable and accessible for the average viewer.
