I'm 74 and have had a lot of medical problems over the years. Dr. Bender is far and away the best doctor I have ever had. He is extremely bright and thorough and has a wonderful bedside manner. I thought so highly of him I recommended him to my wife. I strongly feel Dr. Bender saved her life. On her second visit he took a sample of a little birthmark on her foot. It proved to be malignant but he caught it before it spread to her lymph nodes. My wife also thinks he's her best doctor ever.
Loveland, CO |
This horrible man is a despicable, abusive, degrading human being to ALL of his employees, even in front of patients. He screams so much at his employees that it terrifies patients, at times to the point that patients waiting have wanted to call the police. His staff is terrified of him, and the turnover rate is VERY high. He does not view you as a patient, just dollar signs. They will squeeze every dime they can out of you and your insurance company. He is very unethical in many ways.
Fort Collins, CO |
He is very rude to his staff, which is uncomfortable for his patience. He has pushed out great physicians with his dictatorship regarding the regulations he has created, which tie the hands of physician to "actually practice the art of medicine." You can sense the fear among the NP's, the PA's, and the remaining physicians to cross the lines he has created. He is smug, arrogant, and down right disrespectful. He doesn't take into consideration the comfort of the patient. It is all about time.

Has to be the worst doctor I have ever seen he does not listen and won't even look at you when your talking to him. He will talk to you as he's walking out the door he acts like your a waste of his time.

Wrote a letter about his practice to him. He and his employed cronies don't communicate, call or write to resolve billing dispute. They are all about the trumped up charges they can assess you with, then they turn you into a collection agency. Went for a WELLNESS checkup (under Obama care LAW) and they biled close to $800 including an office visit when I was already there for $180.00 additional WATCH OUT. Just a poor run operation all about the money they can get from you and or your insurance

Dr. Bender is very thorough and has a good reputation for diagnosis and treatment.

I've seen Dr Bender a few times and I have always felt like he was attentive and thorough. He caught diagnosis that my other previous drs had missed. He is knowledgeable about a plethora of conditions. The only issue I've had is long wait times.
