Dr. Henderson graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of South Florida with a Bachelors Degree in Science in Environmental Science. He completed medical school at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jerseys School of Osteopathic Medicine (now Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine). He was then at the University of Vermont for three years completing Internal Medicine Residency followed by a subspecialty Fellowship in Rheumatology at Duke University.<br/><br/>

"In my approach to Rheumatology I emphasize and feel strongly that a comprehensive understanding of the individual seeking assistance is vital. I find that taking a quality history and physical at every visit is the cornerstone of good medicine and my patients will receive this. Within all my professional interactions, I intend to never insert personal bias about a patient's lifestyle choices. I work instead from a strong scientific foundation for any of my recommendations. I recognize that a majority of the ailments needing Rheumatologic guidance are systemic and multifaceted in their presentation and management. For this reason I collaborate closely and regularly with the other health professionals who see any of my patients. On a personal level, I enjoy spending time with my wife, son and dogs as well as small scale agriculture."<br/><br/>

As a senior medical student, Dr. Henderson was inducted into the Gold Humanism Honor Society. This was obtained through a combination of faculty and peer evaluations on his clinical, personal and academic achievements. While at Duke University, he obtained Duke University Hospitals GME Certificate in Patient Safety and Quality Improvement as an added qualification.
