Thank you Dr. Bender for looking out for me and for helping to save my life.
Dr Bender recommended that I have a carotid ultrasound done based on my family history. My sister who is one year older had a stroke two years ago. I was having no symptoms nor did I have an concerns with my health. My cholesterol and blood pressure were fine. Thanks to Dr. Bender and her insistence of me having the test, it was reveled that I had a sever blockage in my left carotid. I had the ultrasound completed in the morning and Dr Bender personally called me on my cell phone to give me the results that same evening. She had me contact my cardiologist ASAP. I did and the carotid angiogram showed a 95 blockage, and when they did the surgery Dr. Hamilton said I was 99 blocked. Thank you Dr. Bender for looking out for me and for helping to save my life. I was a walking stroke / heart attack waiting to happen.
