I had arthritis in my right thumb, which was treated by Dr. Henley. He was very thorough and explained everything from what to expect after the cortisone injection I had to the possibility of surgery if the shot wasn't effective. Since I still had pain, I chose surgery and went into it knowing exactly what to expect from the beginning. Dr. Henley, his staff and the staff at the hospital provided excellent care and answered all questions. I have very good use of my thumb and am pain free.

The nurses at the surgery center were friendly and informative. The post op instruction sheet is very helpful. I was glad the nurse explained that washing the stitches after removing the bandages was a one time thing and they needed to stay dry after that; the instruction sheet wasn't clear on that. Also having never had a narcotic and the bowel issues associated with that, I would recommend taking a stool softener while on the narcotic.

Dr. Henley has performed carpal tunnel release and trigger finger surgery on both my hands. I was extremely happy with each procedure and the outcome. I feel he is extremely knowledgeable and professional. I also love that he has a genuine care for his patients. Very warm and understanding. I highly recommend Dr. Henley and am grateful for all he has done to repair my health issues.

I work in the medical field and expect a lot from offices. My granddaughter saw him for a finger fracture yesterday, maybe he was having a bad day. But, he was less than pleasant to a 5 year old little girl. After waiting an long time she experienced a coughing attack, she has been sick. My daughter asked to get her a drink of water. He didn't answer went out the door and came back 10 minutes later. People talk, and they ask opinions of who they should see... he won't be one we recommend.

Very unfriendly. But more important, clueless. Couldn't tell us a simple diagnosis that others found easily. Expect maybe 3 mins tops during visit.

I heard about Dr Henley from a friend of mine who is a local doctor as well. He was very pleased with his results. I decided to have Dr Henley do my carpal tunnel surgery and I am very happy with the results! My symptoms are completely gone. The interaction with his staff was very professional and efficient. I am a local physician as well. When your livelihood depends upon it, I would unequivocally reccomend him for carpal tunnel sydrome. Best Regards, Local physician

Dr. Henley repaired a crushed elbow for me (8 hour surgery) four years ago. He fully explained what he was doing before and during my follow up visits. He was always very kind and compassionate, and I never felt as if he were hurrying through my appointments. I am happy to report that my elbow works almost as if nothing ever happened to it. I would and have recommended Dr. Henley to anyone in need of a hand or arm surgeon.

He seems to really enjoy helping people. very professional plus quite friendly and engaging. He was honest and factual concerning the pros and cons of my carpal tunnel procedure. July of 2016 he did my left wrist and in two weeks did my right wrist. Second day for each hand, I had no symptoms. I could drive, mow, write, type without my hands going to sleep. And "I" can sleep all night without waking up with a hand and arm aching. and make chords on guitar. super pleased. Larry C.

Dr. Henley performed left hand surgery last year and did a wonderful job! I have full range of my thumb and NO more pain. The procedure he uses is wonderful and works - I would highly recommend Dr. Henley he listens and explains the procedure and is available if you have questions. Sherry
