in Lafayette, LA |
Recently had lateral and medial meniscus surgery. Dr. Henry did an outstanding job. Very professional. Walked out of the facility putting full weight on knee. Minimal pain the first day with no pain after.
Lafayette, LA |
I went in to get my shoulder looked at, the staff was very friendly and I was in the back in no time. After a short wait, I was brought back for a X-Ray and Dr. Henry was their quickly to explain my injury. he was very clear and made sure I understood everything that was going on and the plan of action. A++++ I highly recommend

I would recommend Dr. Henry to anyone. The entire staff treated me well and expressed concern for my diagnosis. Dr. Henry took the time to explain my situation and prognosis. He eased my mind and was able to help me reduce pain and consider all alternatives.
Lafayette, LA |
The care and attention I've received from Dr. Henry and his staff has been outstanding.
in Scott, LA |
Every member of my householf has seen Dr. Henry and I have referred many family members and friends who are also patients. No sugar coating, but very compassionate and thourough with his explanations and course of treatment!
in Ville Platte, LA |
Great at diagnosis, I went for what I though was my problem and he actually had a totally different diagnosis after discussing my symptoms with me. He explained to my husband and I, that I had a problem I didn't know I had, he went through each symptom and explained it to us. The MRI verified what he had diagnosed very impressive. This is different from above, almost 2 weeks ago I had a trigger thumb release and a ganglion cyst in my thumb removed. I woke up with movement I hadn't had in years
in Erath, LA |
I had rotator cuff surgery November 2015. Essentially pain free now 3 months post-op. Dr. Henry and staff were professional, caring, and willing to answer any questions. Everything was explained well with clear instructions provided. Appointments were able to be scheduled quickly and with minimal wait times.
