Winter Garden, FL |
She was my husband's neurologist during the first six years of his Parkinson's. She always gave the right instructions and medications. But, as important, she helped us to learn how we could live with this disease and still enjoy our life. We are now in his 14 year and living in Fl. but still are grateful to her helping us in the beginning with her frank and fun attitude. She's the best.

Dr Henchcliffe has treated me for Parinsons for over 12 years. She consistently deonstrates real care and concern. Thanks to her, through her timing of medication changes, has led a reasonably normal life. And she always sends me off with at least one backup plan in case planA didn't work.
