He treated my dad for esophageal cancer. Waited months between each PET scan, even after he realized the cancer was spreading aggressively. Did not change treatment plans even when they weren't working. My dad died a month after Wender said he was terminal. Never called or checked on him in any way, but a different doctor at Nylen did. Wender then refused to sign the death certificate because he "hadn't seen that patient for months" causing unnecessary stress on a grieving family. Stubborn man, will not change treatment plans, will not help in any way after a patient's passing, causes stress on grieving families who have funerals to plan. Would never recommend him to anyone.
