Kathryn F. Bender, DO

Excela Health Medical Group Provider

Philosophy of Care

As a Family Medicine physician, I have the honor of treating people at every stage of life and for all conditions. It brings me joy to be able to care for the whole family, and I look forward to becoming a part of the next generation's care as my patients' families grow. I am very passionate about preventative medicine and limiting medications to only the most necessary and beneficial for my patients. I believe that communication and empathy are critical to the doctor-patient relationship and I strive to employ these in every patient interaction. ***

    Dr. Bender is relatively new to me, and I greatly appreciate that she listens well and asks thoughtful questions that show she is hearing and understanding me.

    It was my first time going to this doctor's office and first time meeting the doctor. She was very nice and listened to & respected my concerns. I was pleased with my visit and will definitely continue to see her in the future.
