Actually this Dr. is a genius, within about 5 minutes of my 1st appointment he was telling me exactly how I feel despite the fact he had just met me (I’m being sarcastic) He told me that multiple conditions I have been struggling with for years is no big deal!!! He was RUDE, MEAN and downright ARROGANT and when I refused a $400.00 out of pocket procedure that I’ve tried 3 times with no success he just walked out on me. Heard good things about Lowell, greatly disappointed. Reviews not to good!!!

I had an app. With Dr. Henkle today, and it was a Disaster!..I wanted a refill of my pain meds ( which I've been on for years, and works for me) but he had no intention of refilling them...he didn't think "herniated Dics were painful", claims my pain meds "do not relieve my pain", and was pushing cortizone ( Steriods ) shots...I told him that I had 2 friends ( one of which has been in a wheel chair since his cortizone shot) who had major problems..he called me a liar..don't use this nut!!!

I think Dr. Henkle is great. Great at keeping patients relaxed, funny yet professional. I had very good results with lumbar injections to reduce pain.

The worst and most inconsiderate doctor I have ever had to deal with.Don't waste your time he is a disgrace to "pain management drs.".I only gave 1 star because I had to,he would get (-5) if that option was available because he is that bad.

Amazing, Dr. Henckle is one of the most genuine doctors I have ever had. I have been a patient of his for several years and even though I no longer live in the area I fly 3000 miles just to see him.

Condescending doctor refused to lool at my xrays stating that an ER radiologist had already looked at them and noted nothing out of the ordinary and my pain is all in my head. I have been dealing with chronic back pain due to abnormal spine curvature and degenerative disc disorder. By his own admission this wouldnt have been picked up by a radiologist.
