    I had to get a 2nd opinion on a sleep study that he read. I wasted hundreds of dollars for the sleep study, and will now have to have another one on a new facility. I can not in good faith recommend his services.

    My mother has been a patient of Dr Henson's for several years. He is dedicated, thorough and patient with her. During hospitalizations, he visited her and spent a significant amount of time reviewing her chart. His nurse has been extremely helpful to us as well. We feel fortunate to be under the care of Dr. Henson.

    Do not recommend this doctor. His office has had medical file,x-rays, and ct scan for 2 weeks. The nurse is still reviewing the file which must be accomplished before appointment is made. I questioned how much time (2 weeks,2 months) after file is reviewed will I see the doctor and was unable to get any kind of timetable. I DO NOT recommend this physician. In my opinion this practice is VERY unprofessional.
