After telling Dr. Bender that I had my first skin cancer removed at 27 from my nose and at 74 I needed to make sure this scale like skin was not basal cell cancer. Not once but twice he froze it off telling me I was fine. After the place returned I went to Dr. Scott Freeman and he did the Mohs surgery 5 times on that spot and had to do a graft. It was a very painful ordeal! Handsome and charming he is but not competent!!!!!!!!!! Both times I reminded him of the previous basal cell that had to be removed.
