Ft Madison, IA |
Dr.Henrich treated both of my young sons seasonal allergies. He was caring, compassionate and made them both feel comfortable!
Burlington |
Dr. Henrich has always been very good with my family. Some visits are nice and quick and others are not. He spends the amount of time required for the problem at hand and makes sure that we don't leave with any questions. If we have any questions we can always call back and the staff makes sure they get back to us within a timely fashion. Sometimes it can be a little bit of a wait in the waiting room but that can happen anywhere.
Hamilton, Il |
I had no problem and he diagnosed me with lymphoma.
in Lomax, IL |
He is a confident man, who has always made sure I understood what the problems were and how to best prevent recurrence. His staff is concise, which is appreciated by someone with hearing problems
in Burlington, IA |
Rude staff, long wait times, and the doc is in the room for less than 3 minutes.
