Dr. Henderer is one of the very best physician that I have experienced in my 77 year on earth. He is thorough, caring, knowledgeable and intelligent! I have recommended him to several family and friends.

Dr Henderer went far beyond my expectations, he listened to my concern about elevated sugars, looked carefully at the possible effects on my eyes, ordered tests and arranged for tests to be done. Dr Henderer personally called me to let me know the results of the tests.
