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.
The staff was very friendly and Dr Hendric was great! Made the experience a lot easier.

The care I received from Dr. Headrick is quite simply as good as it gets. I never felt hurried. Over the course of my surgery and post surgical experience he made me feel like I was an important patient. He explained everything in a way I could understand, and kept things light and friendly. If I could, I'd make him my regular doctor. I trust him.

Had a sigmoid colon resection a year ago. Dr. Headrick's before, during and aftercare is the gold standard for medicine. He is praised highly by his peers and I recommend him very highly to anyone in need of his expertise.
He kept me waiting in the exam room for an hour without ever seeing me. I left. His staff seemed surprised he didn't see me, but made no effort to find him. i guess it was because the waiting room was teeming with patients. Oh, wait, there was no one there. It was extremely unprofessional.
