Cancer is a terrible disease… the treatment for it is hard on the body. But it's good doctors like Bender that ease the way. He talked me through every step. Walked me through the side effects. Made me feel hopeful instead of hopeless. I love talking to him cuz he's passionate about his job. I love that I can look at my numbers if I want to and he takes the time to explain them. I learn something new each time we meet. I love is assistant too ! Both of them make you feel comfortable … that you may have cancer but we fix that here. I from here on out will make sure if anyone I know of has cancer. I got a great specialist with a great team u can see
