“Dr. Henderson personally calls me to check on Cody. He seriously treats Cody like he’s one of his kids. I don’t know what I’d do without Dr. Henderson.”
Michelle Swingle is very particular about doctors. She has private health insurance and often changes doctors if she finds them to lack compassion, experience or knowledge. When she was pregnant with her first child, Michelle found out that her son has a rare condition called arthrogryposis, which constricts the joints in his legs and arms. Her neonatologist recommended a pediatrician at Rocky Mountain Youth Clinics because of the doctor’s experience. Michelle began taking her son to Rocky Mountain Youth Clinics and has had nothing but high praise for the doctors there ever since.
Since birth, Cody has required extensive medical care, including several operations, weekly therapy, and extra attention when he gets sick. He wears a back brace to treat scoliosis, curvature of the spine, and will need frequent medical care for the rest of his life. Dr. Joseph Craig served as Cody’s pediatrician between 2005 and 2011. When Dr. Craig left for another practice, Cody’s care was transferred to Dr. Lucas Henderson. Dr. Henderson was just as good – even better, Michelle said. He has consistently shown compassion and skill with Cody’s care, and also takes care of Cody’s younger brother Cole.
“Sometimes when I need to get Cody to see Dr. Henderson and he doesn’t have appointments, he will stay longer at the end of his day so he can see Cody,” Michelle said. “He personally calls me to check on Cody. He seriously treats Cody like he’s one of his kids. I don’t know what I’d do without Dr. Henderson.”
“We’ve had a ton of doctors that we’ve never seen again for random reasons. My insurance is changing at the end of the year and the only doctor I wanted to make sure we could keep is Dr. Henderson. We love him.”
