Thank you for your help.

March 10, 2020 11:49 AM

This was my first time meeting with this doctor. She was wonderfully helpful. She was patient. She listened to my concerns and helped answer all of my questions. She never made me feel rushed or like she was in a hurry to see the next patient. I felt very comfortable asking her all my questions and confident that she had my best interest at heart.

Dr. Hensley is a caring, compassionate professional who sincerely invests in her patients. Other staff in the practice are the same - X is caring, kind and gives the best hugs in moments when a hug is needed. I am grateful for the care I have received.

September 29, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Hensley is amazing. what a great bedside manner. she actually emphatized with me. she is an amazing asset to a group that is not that great anymore bc you are a number rather than a patient. she did not make you feel like a number like the other partners in her group

September 27, 2019 7:00 PM

good

The provider is very good in nature and checks my health very carefully.I recommended this provider for other patients too.

January 27, 2019 6:00 PM

Sometimes the phone number isn't answered. I called 3 times within 25 minutes and no one answered once. It's frustrating to get through a question to your doctor as I had to talk to two nurses, one of which did not hear half of my symptoms, which would have gotten me in sooner.

January 24, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr Hensley is very professional and listens well to all concerns. Thank you for making me feel comfortable.

January 24, 2019 6:00 PM
