I enjoy developing plans that are tailored to and meet the needs of each of my patients and their families. In addition to giving practical advice, I strive to provide comprehensive care for each of our families."

Dr. Bender is a board member for Intensive Therapeutics, a nonprofit, charitable organization that provides group and individual occupational therapy for children with special needs.
