Learn about Derek Henderson

Care Philosophy

I take time to listen and provide a safe and non-judgmental environment where a patient can feel comfortable enough to bring up any issues they are having. I enjoy cracking a joke or two with patients, laughing and just treating people as people. I approach medicine from a mutual relationship centered on the well-being of the person I am talking to and strive to work as a team to provide the best care possible.

brighton, mi |
He should have looked at my symptoms as a whole,and sent me to the specialist who handles those issues.

Derek is very knowledgeable about most things and can explain them in an understandable way. He is compassionate and sympathetic most of the time. He is stingy about relieving serious pain. For this reason I would not recommend him to a friend suffering from any kind of intense pain issue.
South Bend, IN |
I highly recommend Derek. He treats you as an individual not just the next number, of a patient. He takes the time to listen to you and answers all your questions about your health. He also keeps you on track to keep healthy and is willing to help you with it. If something is wrong and you need a specialist he will recommend one. then he follows up with office visits to see how you are doing. I am not a male patient but i do know most men dont like going to doctors, now my husband has no fear ,
