He might be a good surgeon - he certainly has good credentials - but he is a miserable person. He is arrogant, rigid, and totally lacking in empathy. There is much more to being a good doctor than being a good technician. I'd advise you to look for a doctor who is a good technician and who also has some personal skills. Dr. Henry is NOT that person.
in Houston, TX |
Dr. Henry is a very knowledgeable person when it comes to what he does. He doesn't beat around the bush. He is a straight forward type person and will let you know right away it is totally up to you if you want to have surgery for your condition; he doesn't force you into any thing. As most specialist, he has a very high ego and you can tell he thinks he the cream of the crop. He doesn't have time for chatting with patient, he just wants to diagnose you and get on with the next.
in Houston, TX |
Dr. Henry was very knowledgeable and direct. He laid out the options, answered my questions, and did not sugar-coat anything. He was brusque, had no interest chit-chat, and made no attempt to be comforting, but he clearly knew his business and how to achieve the desired result. I called at 8 am, set an appointment for 9:45, then surgery for 3:30. In my opinion, the risk of a long wait due to an unscheduled emergency is more than balanced by the ability to make same day appointments.
in Houston, TX |
Dr. Henry is a skilled, knowledgeable surgeon, but he is very egotistical and abrasive when it comes to his bedside manner. If someone is desperate for a good hand doc to the point where the bedside manner doesn't count, I'd send them to Dr. Henry.
in Porter, TX |
First, you need to understand he sees emergency patients the same day. I was one of those emergency patients. So, if you are expecting to be seen exactly at your appointment time, either you weren't squeezed in for your initial appointment, or you do not realize how lucky you are to be there. No, Dr. Henry is not a kumbaya doctor. If you need to be coddled, this is not your Doctor. If, however, you want good medical care, and want to have use of your hand, this is the place to be.
in Sugar Land, TX |
Dr. Henry made me feel very comfortable at our first meeting. He is very through and patient and listened to everything I had to say. He is the best doctor I have ever met!
in Seabrook, TX |
I was warned other doctors found Dr. Henry to be arrogant, and had a god complex. I thought if he was really good, I would not need to talk to him. On the day of the surgery, he decided not to perform the complicated surgery I needed. Instead he told us that he might be able to perform a simpler option (which ended up being cleaning out scar tissue). When I saw him again tried to tell him my wrist was worse, he told me I did not appreciate what he had done for me. :(
Extremely intelligent and prompt. High level of expertise and an expert in the field .
Houston, TX |
I had distal radius fracture that had not been set correctly. Dr. Henry proposed a complicated surgery involving the insertion of a plate in my wrist, and repairing dead bone. Instead of doing that surgery, he decided to clean out scar tissue leaving me with a sill misaligned and painful wrist. When I asked him about the pain and lack of movement, he became indignant, and told me I did not appreciate his work. Aside from a few degrees of movement, nothing has changed. Arthritis has started.
in Baytown, TX |
I've NEVER had a Dr. scream at me! 2nd surgery,in pre opt,I referenced his words about filleting my hand as a joke. He stuck his finger in my face & YELLED, I distinctly remember telling you in my office about what I was doing today I don't need to go over it again you will have the procedure discussed, no surgery! He stormed to next patient. Staff I could see looked as horrified as myself. It turned out he did have to cut me open & messed up.Last visit he sugar sweet.RUN AWAY TO REAL DR!

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
