My visit was great.
Dr Henderson is very nice and very helpful.
Dr. Henderson has been my child's pediatrician for nearly two years now and we love her. My daughter feels very comfortable with her. I love that Dr. Henderson is very thorough and she provides a wealth of information to the parents as well as age appropriate advice and tips for the children. We never feel rushed. She takes care of the WHOLE patient. If she feels that you could benefit from outside resources, she will provide you with that information. She genuinely cares for her patients and loves what she does. My daughter has a chronic medical issue. On our first visit, Dr. Henderson referred us to an excellent specialist who has been treating my daughter ever since. My daughter has been hospitalized several times in the past year and Dr. Henderson took the time to review the medical reports from the hospital and specialist prior to my daughter's appointment with her and she knew exactly what my daughter had experienced in between visits wit her. We did not have to explain much of anything. Too many, I'm sure that this may not seem like a big deal but when you are juggling appointments with more than one specialist, as well as being tired due to extended hospital stays, any little bit of help matters. We never have along wait time and the office is always clean. Her support staff s very friendly and helpful. They go above and beyond to make you fell welcomed. The entire office feels like extended family to us. I am very thankful to have found Dr. Henderson and her staff.
The staff was all very pleasant. The doctor was very informative and was patient and did not rush through our appointment and was very thorough. I was very happy with our visit and I’m glad that we found Dr. Henderson.
I've been searching for a pediatrician closer to home since we moved to Gwinnett. My son has had the same pediatrician since birth, and we hated to leave her, but Dr. Henderson was wonderful. I know my son thought so, as well, because he heard everything she said and we discussed it on the way home. She spoke with him plainly and simply, but as if he was a young adult and not a kid (he's 14). I was also impressed with the other staff. They were friendly, helpful and professional.
Dr. Henderson gives you what you need and no fluffy to follow. I appreciate the time spent and explanations given.
The nurse and doctor were wonderful! The office was very dirty though.

The receptionist were slightly unprofessional, nothing horrible but could use a little more training. Dr. Henderson was amazing, very professional and answered all my questions. Would recommend her to any one of my peers.
Dr. Henderson and her staff were excellent. They were very attentive and thorough answering our questions. I like the fact that they offer additional support, like workshops, regarding health and wellness.
I believe that they are understaffed... we waited a long time and felt rushed. The worst part is that they never sent my daughter's information for the patient portal. Hesitant to go back.
Dr. Henderson was great! Fast and efficient! My kids were happy and we were all well informed on everything! We will definitely be coming back for many years to come!
Amazing! She was very informative and patient! She was great with the kids and really made me feel at ease! She is truly awesome I look forward to her being in my kids lives for a while.

The Doctor is really great .
It was great she talked to me and explained everything before she did it. She asked me questions and listened to my answers and then told me what to do after my visit. She made me feel comfortable.
Very knowledgeable and professional.... Highly recommended.
She informed me on information that I was suppose to receive in the hospital. She also gave me some great tips about caring for a newborn and toddler. We love Dr. Henderson!
I like her because she is very informative. And I like that about people that give me the accurate information.
She was excellent. Showed my baby lots of attention.
Dr. Shonte Henderson was wonderful as usual. But I did file a complaint against her assistant who had an attitude and made my child feel uncomfortable from twisting his arm and leaving visible marks on his back.
The wait time was maybe 5 minutes! We were in quickly. As she looked at my son, Dr. Henderson was able to identify what was wrong and how to resolve his issue. This was less than a 30 minute doctor visit. Awesome! I have finally found an ideal pediatrician!
Everybody was very nice and professional. I really wish appointment had started on time. My time is important too.They made me sign an agreement about cancellations 24 hrs in advance and being on time but they were 30 minutes behind. I know it's typical but needs to be said.
Very personable and knowledgeable. I felt like she took her time and answered all questions and concerns. The office is very neat and sanitary. There was no wait time and front office was full of smiles. When leaving, they were sure to inquire if I needed a doctor's excuse. Other offices would let you leave without obtaining one.
Very knowledgeable and informative. Dr. Henderson is very pleasant and good at her profession. My children agree.
We loved our visit!!! Truly an amazing doctor
I love the interaction, she not only spoke with me but my son and got to know him. This was our first visit and I left the appointment feeling that I made the right choice in selecting Dr Henderson as our new pediatrician.
Dr. Henderson was great and explained everything to a "T"! She was knowledable about multiple parents and we appreciated that with our twins!
We have had trouble with the last couple of pediatricians and was becoming doubtful of the pediatrics we were finding. We luckily came across Ivy League pediatrics with Dr Henderson and we could not be anymore happier with where we have chosen and don't plan on going anywhere else after finding this helpful and very comforting staff. Thanks everyone!!
Dr Henderson was very knowledgeable and thorough. She gave me a diagnosis for my daughter within ten minutes of the visit, prescription and recommendations. She will be my daughter's pediatrician for a long while!!
Amazing Doctor! Very informative and has amazing bedside manner. You can really see that Dr Henderson loves what she does, and cares for the children that are her patients.
I really like this location as well as the provider and her staff. Everyone is friendly and we were seen right away. My daughter has gotten great care every time we have gone here no matter if its just for a annual check-up or something else.
Great as usual
We just moved to the area and before we get even get established with the practice, my daughter got sick. I was able to make a same day appointment online, the front desk was warm and helpful and Dr. Henderson took care of us right away. We were sad to leave an amazing pediatrician in Maryland but I think we will be very happy with Ivy League!
Great visit. Went in for the flu shot. In and out in 20 mins
Very informative! This Doctor knows her stuff.
They seemed short staffed, I was on time for appointment and had to wait 15 minutes before someone even saw me in waiting area. With a newborn its not that easy because every second you risk your baby with other sick kids around. Especially waiting to get seen by doctor took another 25 minutes when baby clothes were off and the since its cold in there it makes it even worse. Very good doctor though, she is well educated and answers all your questions promptly.
I love the fact that her office is very professional and she is an African American doctor who is excellent at what she do.
Maiseon loves her..
She was very good with my daughter.

Dr. Henderson is very knowledgable with children issues. I take my daughter here a lot for almost everything and she never makes me feel as if I'm too worried! She's very professional and smart!
We were in and out of the office within 35 minutes! The entire staff was very helpful and friendly. Dr. Henderson was knowledgeable and easy to talk to about all my concerns I had for my children. I'm very glad I found her and the location is seconds away from our home.
Dr. Henderson is awesome. She is very knowledgeable and is genuinely concerned about the welfare of my children.

Awesome doctor, she really showed she cared and had great interaction with my 2 year old daughter!
She is an awesome doctor and very informative.
Dr. Henderson was amazing. My lil angel was grumpy from missing out on her nap due to the doc visit. Dr. Henderson was very sweet and talked to my angel making her feel real comfortable. The grumpiness turned into a calm collective smile. She listened to my concerns and addressed each one. I could tell by my two month old's babble that Dr. Henderson is a keeper.
Nice, friendly, VERY knowledgeable and doesn't mind breaking things down for you. No wait time and was pleasant to be around. She did great with my son.
