Don't believe the advertising. I heard about Dr. Bender on the radio and thought he would be a good choice for a mole check up as I am getting up in age and have spent time in the sun. I had wait over an hour just to called back. He finally rushes in and takes a quick look and asked me if I want to freeze off some moles. I thought he was the doctor and would determine that. He didn't even take the time to look at my whole body. I had to ask him if he would look at my legs. Very disappointed!

This doctor did not ask me a history about my skin problems, spent 5 min in the room, and did not have any idea what is going on after looking on my skin rash. I had to insist on my blood test to confirm what I was thinking about my condition. Then, I received a bill for $ 415 dollars!!! Is it normal bill for medical help from the doctor? Did he really helped me? NO! Never go back to him again and do not advise you to go there.

I first saw Dr. Bender for a routine skin cancer screening. He was quick, concise and matter of fact without being abrupt. Everyone , from the PAs to the staff , has always been pleasant and helpful. But, be prepared to wait. I have had to leave and reschedule when my appointment time was 30 minutes prior and I was still in the waiting room.

I visited the Mobile office. Dr Bender was very courteous, friendly, prompt and thorough. I was very happy with my visit and the procedure that he performed. His staff was equally friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend.

I originally started visiting Advanced Dermatology for Botox and have been very pleased ever since. I have had 3 separate laser procedures all with great results. He even has a laser to cure psoriasis! Dr. Bender listened to my concerns and was extremely knowledgable in my diagnosis. His nurse contacted me in a timely fashion with my biopsy results and scheduled my surgery. Their new building is beautiful. I recommend his office to all my friends.

Paid my co-insurance upon going to this doctor and he billed my insurance company under two codes, one for burning offer wart they paid and the other for nevis??. Paid my agreed co-pay before the visit. Billing department and receptionist at Daphne, AL are rude and do not care to get their insurance claim corrected. Stay away, beware! After he burned off the wart, it came back and he collected 20.00 plus money from my insurance for being in-network He is trying to bill me another 100.00.
