I've been Dr Banders patient since 2002 he has diagnosed my problems way before anyone else when I sought a second opinion. He has always been right. He has great concern and seems to know when you need more explanations. He answers all my questions and needs On the portal usually in 24 hours or less. He has pointed me in the right directions for all referrals and they have been great doctors also

Dr. Bander has been our family doctor for years and I wouldn't go to anyone else. He is the best, and I consider him to be a part of my family. If there is an award for best physician he should get it. He would have all my votes. I wish he wouldn't retire, but he deserves to have a great retirement with his family. If I could follow him to Oklahoma I would. I wish him nothing but the best for his retirement and we will miss him dearly. I'm afraid we won't find another doctor like him. We love him as part of our family and he has top notch staff too. Love them all.

He praised her for it. This office has taken very good care of me and my family through the years. I recommend them to anyone who may be looking for a good doctor.
