Dr. Henderson was incredibly caring and listened to the things I was saying. He did not try to rush the appointment or rush me out of the office as quickly as possible as some providers do. He makes you feel very calm and eases your concerns of seeing a urologist. I'd recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Joseph W. Henderson is definitely an experienced physician and an expert in his field. I had previously watched his hour-long video about *** and all of the issues and treatments associated with it. I was quite impressive with his strong command of all of these issues that enabled me to feel comfortable making my appointment ASAP with him. I have now seen Dr. Henderson 3 times to date. I will see him again next February. I feel that I would not be moving this far ahead with my treatment that is successfully addressing my issues of concern since they became a noticeable problem in *** if I had not learned about Dr. Henderson and felt compelled to make an appointment with him. ***

At UH, we disclose practitioner and their family members’ ownership and intellectual property rights that are or in the process of being commercialized. In addition, we disclose payments to employed practitioners of $5,000 or more from companies with which the practitioners interact as part of their professional activities. These practitioner-industry relationships assist in developing new drugs, devices and therapies and in providing medical education aimed at improving quality of care and enhancing clinical outcomes. At the same time, UH understands that these relationships may create a conflict of interest. In providing this information, UH desires to assist patients in talking with their practitioners about industry relationships and how those relationships may impact their medical care.

UH practitioners seek advance approval for certain new industry relationships. In addition, practitioners report their industry relationships and activities, as well as those of their immediate family members, to the UH Office of Outside Interests annually. We review these reports and implement management plans, as appropriate, to address conflicts of interest that may arise in connection with medical research, clinical care and purchasing decisions.
