    He was recommended to me by my family doctor. I had a squamous cell carcinoma skin cancer on my thumb that had to be removed . I was very nervous, but Dr. Fender gave me something to calm me and as he promised I felt absolutely nothing. Upon removing all cancer he had to put a skin graft on the exposed area. It healed beautifully! He is a very knowledgable , kind doctor who is a great surgeon and has a great personality. I would definitely recommend him to all my family and friends.
