Testimonials from Dr. Bender's Patients

August 2023

Dr. Jonathan Bender, has a lot of knowledge and wonderful bed side manners. He has been taking care of me for almost 9 yrs. I thank the Lord I am under his care. My Mother-in-law, lived with my husband and I and I would take her to see Dr. Bender and all of her chemo treatments for at least 21 months. She was 90 yrs old and thought the world of Dr. Bender and his staff. When I had found out that I have cancer I had surgery at Emory Hospital and then I requested to be under the care of Dr. Bender, at Fayette-Piedmont Hospital. If it wasn't for the good Lord and Dr. Bender I'm know I would not be here today.
