Dr. Henderson is the most kind, patient and above all knowledgeable Dr. I have ever come in contact with. He successfully fixed a C1/C2 fusuon surgery due to AAI that another surgeon had botched. I believe Dr. Henderson is a literal gift from God.

DO NOT GO TO THIS DOCTOR! If you leave a bad review, he will come after you in every way possible. Your life will end up in shambles. Harm WILL come to you if something goes wrong and you report it. Please listen to me. I don't want anyone else to go through what I'm going through.

Living with EDS is difficult and complex. To be dismissed for years was worth the wait for Dr. Henderson. Dr. Henderson is in no way perfect but he listens, prays and supports.
