Dr. Henderson is a walking encyclopedia of medical information--he is conscientious, hard-working, and very dedicated. He successfully replaced hips for two family members, acting quickly in emergency situations. He has helped us with problems like bone density, tendonitis and bursitis, too. He takes the time necessary to explain what is wrong and the options available for treatment. We are very grateful to Dr. Henderson--he has substantially improved the quality of our lives.

Dr. Henderson has been my Orthopedic doctor for the past 15 years. He is the best and I trust him completely. My brother is also a patient. Dr. Henderson is the go to guy for orthopedic issues. He will be straight forward, honest and compassionate as to your condition and what needs to be done. Unfortunately I have needed 5 joint replacements, Dr. Henderson did them all and life is good. My husband and I are truly thankful we have such a great doctor taking care of my orthopedic needs.

Hi, I’m Ryan 26 years old who recently was just a patient under the care of dr Henderson. Back In August I had a freak accident and broke my hand. I didn’t have insurance and didn’t know what else to do. Thanks to dr Henderson and his staff, out of the kindness of their heart we were able to figure out a way for me to be taken care of. I had surgery and my thumb works just as good as it did before I broke it! I cannot thank them enough for everything him and his staff were able to do!

Although I've been told he's a good doctor after my experience I wouldn't recommend him because he fat shamed me. Good bedside manner and politeness means a lot! He told a few times that I am too big, I looked like I was having triplets making me feel humiliated and insulated! My mother and I couldn't believe it!!! We were both very surprised and she apologized repeatedly to because she referred me to him. I told he it was okay. But, I will never see him again or refer anyone to him!!!!

I have been to Dr. Henderson's office with both my Mother and my Husband.The front desk office staff are warm and friendly and quick and efficient. Once back in a room, the nurses are awesome, friendly and down to earth and really care about you. Not only is Dr. Henderson an amazing doctor, very thorough and direct, but you can clearly see how strong his Christian faith is as he makes available in his waiting room free books and dvd's on various Christian subjects. We wouldn't go to anyone else!
