"I was recommended to Dr. Henkin in July 2023 by a friend, I Was in such horrible pain. Had sciatica for years off and on. I got up one morning and had severe pain from my lower back to my feet. I called his office and was told I needed to get an MRI. Got it and had an appointment within a week. When I left his office I was scheduled for surgery 3 weeks later. I think Dr. Henkin is a miracle worker. I feel he has given me my life back. Have always been very active and 10 months later I can pretty much do most of the things I have always enjoyed doing. I am still improving. The 5 hour operation was definitely worth it. I have followed his instructions to the letter and it has paid off. Thank you Dr. Henkin from the bottom of my heart. "

"I saw Dr. Henkin in 2021 and he treated me like a liar. Unfortunately he missed sclerosis on my spine and I had no idea until two days ago when I personally reviewed my MRI’s. What a mess. "

"My husband was (almost) immediately relieved of pain after surgery from Dr Henkin. Thank you for giving me back a husband who is feeling so much better! Can’t wait for the six month mark when you tell us he will never know he had sciatica! I’m a believer!"

"The doctor killed a bicyclist by slamming int him at near 100mph in a 20 zone. He has no regard for life. Thrill seeker. Reckless. Out of jail on bail. Who knows what might do to you when you’re asleep on his table for thrills? Madman."

"this doctor didn't see any problem with a blown L-2/L-3 and didn't do any test at all simply a great disappointment for a professional. Must be nice to be able to pick and choose who he is going to help??? I won't be referring any patients to him ever!!!"

"I woke up 9/25/19 in excruciating to say the least pain finding myself several hours later walking into Brandon Hospital’s emergency room being admitted so they could try to control my nonstop pain. I was Blessed when Dr. Henkin walked into my hospital room, reviewed my MRI, gave me my options in full details, answered all my questions and concerns knowing he had a full day of surgery ahead of him, I still have the diagram he drew for me explaining the procedure. Never meeting Dr. Henkin until this moment I instantly saw and felt his true concern and empathy for me being is such pain. I was schedule for surgery that day and underwent anterior cervical discectomy and fusion on 4/5, 5/6. The next day Dr. Henkin came in to check on me to find my neck collar to big and took his MIT skills to fix it for me. Like I said a true gift from God. Reading reviews I was prepared to wait for my checkup appointments so I brought my work with me, I never waited long, was greeted by his staff with smiles ...
and again Dr Henkin spent time with me having conversation on what to except and for someone who works out he allow me to do just enough understanding this was important to me. I wanted to wait until now to write my review as yesterday 3/26/20 I was discharged, bones fused, scar unnoticeable and pain free. Surgery was 100% successful! Dr. Henkin is the whole package one would hope for in their doctor. Thank You Dr. Henkin! "

"He was straight forward with me and my wife , told me I was good candidate for a second fusion of the three above the previous fusion explained the time it would take and told me what he would do , then told me I had to lose 50 lbs . I went home and four months later seen him second time , lost 40 lbs. , and scheduled the surgery for month and a half later . I am nervous but I know the good and bad . He is no nonsense . I feel he covered everything . "

"First I have to tell you that when you make an appointment you will be waiting at least 3 to 4 weeks. Then once you show up to your appointment you may have to be rescheduled or wait 2 to 3 hours due to over scheduling. Malpractice Alert: I requested a formal report of my visit with Dr. Henkin which I received today. There are three pages. 1 page describes detailed physical examination actions performed on me including basic checks like heart rate, height, weight, etc. it also included detailed tests performed on me by Dr. Henkin to include an array of checks on my neck area arms, legs, knees, etc. NONE OF THAT HAPPENED. IT IS A COMPLETE LIE AND IS MORE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH THAT ITS EXTREMELY HURTFUL AND DISRESPECTFUL. I WILL PURSUE LEGAL ACTION AND INCLUDE THIS REVIEW ON EVERY OUTLET POSSIBLE. When I met Dr. Henkin about my neck pain he spent about five to seven minutes with me and did not provide any useful information as to why I was experiencing pain and discomfort including numbness ...
in my left forearm down to my fingertips. He simply looked at my MRI from 6 months prior and stated that there is no nerve impingement that he can see. When I asked him to explain why I am experiencing these issues he looked me dead in the eyes and shrugged his shoulders. He then suggested that I pursue aerobics exercises or swimming in order to strengthen the neck muscles around my cervical spine. I have a fully herniated degenerating C-5 disc and I have a additional two discs above that which are bulging at this point. He did not perform any physical examination so that I could show him exactly where I was experiencing pain. He was very impersonal and I’m glad I did not take him up on the offer to exercise. I had completed two rounds of shots in my neck which were terribly painful, two months of physical therapy and ice/hot prescription ointments on my neck including medication by prescription. He was my fourth opinion at that point. I recently got a fifth opinion and all of the orthopedic surgeons and neurological surgeons agreed that I needed to get a discectomy at least on my C-5 disk. Furthermore, they also advised me not to do any activities due to the risk of being paralyzed or experiencing some type of paralysis at any given moment. "
