Helpful, Very easy to understand expectations, Always Thorough

I enjoy having Dr. Bender as my provider because I feel I can ask as many questions as I want. He's very good at explaining things in terms I can understand. He's helped me improve my health and take control of my weight. In many ways being chronically ill can lead to a feeling of having no control over your own health. Dr. Bender has helped me to identify what things I can improve to increase my health. I appreciate his care and concern that he shows for his patients. I don't feel like just another number when I'm being treated by him. I feel like a person who he cares about and someone he wants to improve the quality of life for. I'm very thankful to have Dr. Bender as my provider. It has made a positive difference in my health.

Great care!!!!

Dr Bender is great at solving my issues or at least attempting to fix things that are wrong. Dr Bender is a great listener and really cares for mine and my wife's well being. The only issue I have is the wait time is almost always too long to be seen once I'm in a room. Other than that, my wife and I are extremely satisfied with the care we receive.

Awesome physician

Dr, Bender is a wonderful physician. He truly care about his patients. He speaks to you in terms I can understand. He
takes the time to find the answer to my allergies and even
finds an alternative way to treat me because of them. He is an amazing doctor.

I will remain Dr. Bender's patient as long as he'll have me

After several years and many other doctors I lucked up upon Dr, Bender as a "second opinion" referral. Well that was a very blessed day for me back in 2010 because Dr. Bender made it his personal mission to see that I get a proper diagnosis, as well as a proper continuing treatment plan. now 9 years later I am so improved and my quality of life is incredible from where I was when I first came to see Dr. Bender. I am serious when I say I will never change doctors again as long as he'll have me.

Awesome timely care

When you go the doctor you expect to wait, there was no wait even when arriving to my appointment I was taken to the room immediately! He offered me a follow up visit via telehealth for $20. Very nice for a working mother!
