Dr. Bendt's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Bendt "I grew up in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and graduated from South Dakota State University with a pharmacy degree. After practicing pharmacy, I decided to go to medical school at the University of South Dakota Sanford School of Medicine. I attended the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics for my residency in obstetrics and gynecology. Obstetrics and gynecology is exciting for me and I really enjoy delivering babies. I joined Rapid City Medical Center in 1998, but I have been practicing in Rapid City for over twenty-five years. During that time, I have delivered nearly 9,000 babies. I am now starting to deliver the babies of babies I've delivered!"

Dr Bendt was my original doctor but I switched OBs when I was 15 weeks pregnant because I wasn't comfortable. He wound up being the on call doctor the weekend I delivered.
