Review of Dr. Bender

- in Spokane, WA |

Today I had my first appointment with Dr. Bender. He had a pleasant medical student named Casey spend time talking & evaluating my situation. Then they discussed my case & came in together, I felt that Dr. Bender was very attentive & listened to my story. My symptoms felt validated. Dr. Bender asked some more questions & did some testing. All In all I felt he gave me a thorough exam & spent plenty of time with me. He seemed very knowledgeable & I felt very comfortable. Great experience!!! TY

Review of Dr. Bender

I was there today for an appt. I arrived earlier than my check In, the receptionists were kind, but not friendly. The nurse\MA seemed very disorganized, not very professional. Then Dr Bender came in. He was more concerned with his computer than me at 1st. I really dislike that. He asked me some questions, and he seemed as if I was making up my symptoms. Ive been dealing with pain since 2014. Then gave me some pills told me to tale those and come back. I felt as if I got no answers. ??

IF YOU SEE THIS MAN, SEEK A SECOND OPINION!!! Misdiagnosed my contidition after talking with him for 10 minutes. Recommended spinal surgery. Informed me that he would set up an appointment with a neurosurgeon and NEVER heard back from him or his office again. After giving up on him or his office to follow through with their promises, I sought out a second opinion with another provider. Turned out to be M.S. all the other reviews I have found on this doctor had similar complaints.

I wouldn't recommend this doctor to anyone. I was referred to him by my PCP. He gave me no answers, and was more interested in why I wasn't wearing high top tennis shoes. Also I had to wait 3 months to see him, and got no answers. I'm going to go to another Neurologist. This guy has a bit of a God complex. Oh and unless you're old and on Social Security he thinks you shouldn't be. He doesn't out right say it, but it's written all over his face! Don't go see him!

Terrible bedside manner. Completely misdiagnosed my son's condition and just wanted me to put him on antidepressants

Review of Dr. Bender

Dr. Bender was very thorough and explained everything. As a nurse I really appreciated that he listened to me and that he explained everything. I would recommend him to anyone. I was very nervous and tend to get a little wound up. He was very calm and got me to focus. I showed up a half hour early so my wait time would not have been as long if I came a little later.

I URGE anyone receiving a diagnosis from Dr. Bender to seek a second opinion. In a 30-40 minute examination he diagnosed my husband with Dementia Alzheimer's disease when in fact he had a well advanced brain tumor. Really glad I sought further testing (MRI).
