Dr. Bender is the best dermatologist you could ever have, bar none.! He is skilled, patient, kind, and knowledgeable to the nth degree. Dr. Bender treated me for a very stubborn, frustrating and, in my mind, contagious (you wouldn't want kids to catch it, although he told me they wouldn't) skin condition that had me in the office sometimes twice a week for many, many months. Best doc I've ever had in any specialty. You will love him!
