Dr. Bensinger saved my life...not much else to say! Exceptional doctor and I went into complete remission after my transplant 10 years ago because of his medical decisions for my particular case, I am now 67. He took me off all maintenance when I left Seattle for home in Colorado and he was completely correct in his decision. I couldn't be healthier. Was so fortunate to have him on my case at Seattle Cancer Care!

When Dr Bensinger was at SCCA he literally told me while I was hooked up to the aphresis machine that trying to get stem cells out of me was like beating a dead horse. Nice analogy for a cancer patient.
