Very long wait time, almost 1.5 hours. Then to only spend 5 minutes with the dr and not get much feedback on how to address any of the issues that I came to see him about was disappointing.

As much as I would like to give Dr. Henderson a positive review, unfortunately I cannot. I am still waiting to hear back from him in regards to blood work, which he said I would have results to the next day, and I never received a response. It is nearly a week later! I saw him on one previous appointment, which I gave a urine sample, I was instructed to call the next day for results, he did not return my call. I call again the following day, at that time the assistant said that since this was my 2nd time calling she would make sure he called me back. He did call me this time, but after I had to call him twice. I have never been to a doctor where I had to call them for results, normally I have always had a doctor that follows up with me with the results. It is a little unsettling that he still has not gotten back to me with my results to my blood work. I am going to find another doctor. He is a really nice person, but this is unacceptable.

I was very impressed with Dr. Henderson and appreciated his way of putting me at ease in discussing health matters, treatments, and going forward. More doctors like his style would be a boon for the medical profession and for the patient. I felt I was in the hands of not only a competent professional, but someone who actually cared about me.

Dr. Henderson made me feel relax about Diagnosis and his plan of care. Office staff, friendly and helpful. Office pleasant, patients talked with each other. No TV distractions. Every patient coming and leaving in high spirits. Wait time about 20 minutes. It helps to be able to fill paperwork online before each office visit.

I thought that the visit was going well until I notice the good doctor speaking as though he was inferior to me.....The doctor seems to know what he's talking about medically but if i could change one thing I would suggest he not offer personal advice because that is certainly not his expertise. I have elected to try a return visit in about a month one hopes that he have came down off that high horse he was riding yesterday.

Great experience. Doctor really listened to my concerns and took the time to completely explain everything. No wait. Let them know who I was seeing and showed me to a patient room. Did not wait but five minutes in patient room for doctor.

He was wonderful, caring and actually is going to do something about what my problem is instead of these other doctors I have been going to for the last couple of years that tell me to: Oh....just take over-the-counter medicine and not to stress out. Obviously this approach didn't cure or help me it only progressed into worse!

Dr. Henderson is very knowledgeable and professional. He explained everything clearly to me and answered my questions easily. I would recommend him to anyone who needs to see a gastroenterologist. The one downside is that the walls in the examination rooms are very thin and you can hear discussions in the next room.

This was by far the worst experience I have ever had with a new doctor. The doctor told me that I was trifling and irresponsible. I did not like him all, horrible bedside manner. I would not recommend. He is to arrogant. I cancelled my next apt with him.

Nice Dr. but I have literally called 5 times to speak with him regarding my lab work and he has failed to call me. I don't know how unorganized his secretaries are but really!? 5 times!? She promised me he would call today when i went off on her yesterday on my 4th call. Nope. Stay away if you can.

Dr. Henderson is the most unprofessional, disrespectful doctor I have ever been to. He gave me what I would consider a "psychic" visit, not examining me or listening to my symptoms, merely diagnosing me from sight. He took two phone calls in the course of five minutes, not apologizing for either, leaving me sitting on the examination table (here, just a table--skipping the examination) and telling me I'm "skinny" and am a "classic case." Rude and pompous. I wonder if he would treat a man the same way he treated me.
