I am a physician, and have observed Dr. Headrick's work as a patient. I and several members of my family have been patients of Dr. Headrick for over 10 years. He is an exceedingly high-quality surgeon. He is accessible in urgent situations, very skilled, knowledgeable and compassionate. He is a superb physician I have met few surgeons in my long career of Dr. Headrick;s caliber.
