What People Say About Dr. Mitchell Bender, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Went to see Dr Bender, my regular dermatologist, about some growths. As always he was the perfect combination of warm and professional. If every doctor had Dr Bender’s combination of expertise and ”bedside manner” going to see a doctor would be a pleasure. And let’s not forget the front of the house: equally as welcoming and professional as Dr Bender. Great group and a truly outstanding doctor!

I had not seen him for over 3 years. Dr. Bender was friendly, interested and efficient. He explained his recommendations very well and performed the liquid nitrogen treatment without a delay. I was very satisfied with his care.

I have gone to Dr. Bender for a variety skin ailments, including skin cancer. He's been correct with his dianoses and treatments. He is friendly and takes time to explain things and let me ask questions. I never have to wait long to see him once I'm there. He's efficient with his time, but I've never felt he was rushing through my appointment to get to his next. I was initially referred to him by an oncologist who said he was one of the best in the area to spot the beginning signs of skin cancer. I found that to be true.
