    How was your appointment with Dr. Bentrem?

    Oct 03, 2019
    Dr. Bentrem removed one single metastatic liver lesion. I was 30 years old and had a 6 month baby girl at home. He truly is a gifted surgeon. He made me feel at ease knowing he had it all under control. I am 2.5 years NED and I owe a lot of this to him! I don't think many physicians would treat surgically,however, between him and my oncologist at NMH, they were willing to give this a shot. So grateful for him and his entire team. Also, quick shout out to his nurse Adrienne. She was top notch also. She met me in Pre-op. She made the process 100x less scary as well. She even came to visit on the floor at one point to check on me. They all are awesome!
