Communication is a big issue in this office. I had a test done the nurse said she would get back with me in a week she never did. Keep in mind this is cancer. I had to call customer relations on these people. I think dr. Benders team think it's a walk in the park so they don't respond to you.. it's kind of important to follow up I don't think they get it though.
