Dr. Hendrickson is personable, professional and caring. It is amazing to me that he was able to save two fingers on my left hand after I nearly cut them off; however, I am even more grateful that he then put me on a plan to strengthen my fingers again and, within three months, I was playing the Harp as strong as I ever did before the accident. To say he is a miracle worker is an understatement. Mark Hendrickson is an angel who truly takes pride in the ways in which he routinely saves lives (and livelihoods) of others.
