      I recently went to Henderson for an inner ear blockage. His demeanor was abrupt and condescending. The patient room was dark & dingy & did not appear to be clean. Henderson (I refuse to call him a Dr) used no gloves & his tools & machines did not look sterile. He used a "vacuum" device on my ears which was incredibly loud & I immediately developed tinnitus in both ears. Stay away from this old man who should have retired a decade ago. You will leave disgusted if not permanently damaged. 0 stars.

      Liked Dr. Henderson's wholistic approach in looking at the problem. So many times in the medical community, a practice will treat the symptom, and not get to the root cause. My preference is a practice that is amenable using both conventional and integrative/alternative diagnostics in order to optimize care for the patient.

      I took my Mom to DR Henderson about a year ago due to ear pain and a perforated ear drum. The medicine he prescribed worked great. My mom is about 10 years older than Doc H and they come from the same generation. Hard work and no slackers. I think the negative responses are due to people who just don't care to here someone tell them the way it is. He may be direct, but he's a darn good doctor.

      Dr. Henderson listened to me after 8 doctors did not. He looked at a CT can, prescribed antibiotics, and also advised to cut out sugar and crap in your diet. I'm sorry to say, but all those"medical professionals" are pointing fingers and telling you to go to another specialist. I went to him when I was little. He is great. He is a military doctor and he wears cowboy boots so what.
      If I could give this doctor ZERO stars, I would. I have never taken the time to do online surveys before, but my experience was so horrible, I felt the need to share. I went in for a bump on my nose, but was lectured in a rude, condescending tone about changing to a gluten free diet. I was told that my GI's instructions were "crap." I was also told that my anxiety/depression isn't a real disease and that I have to get off those "damn meds" before I "shoot up a school like those other kids."

      Office was nice; however, Dr. Henderson was very self-adsorbed and arrogant, and not in a good way. Two qualities I do not want in a doctor. He did not listen to me or my medical history, and was rude. His recommended treatment that made me uneasy, and worried my medical friends whom recommended that I not listen and seek another doctor's advice. It is evident that this doctor does not keep up with medical advances and probably needs to retire before putting one of his patients in danger.

      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.
