      Dr. Hendricker is an active listener. He easily absorbs the referral notes and then has the ability to ask questions to guide him to a proper diagnosis and further evaluation. He hears what the patient says and responds in a concise and clear way.

      It is too early to know the long term results of my sinus surgery by Dr. Hendricker, but the experience with him has been a good one. The debridments are not fun but he has been very good with explanations and honest answers to all my questions.
