Dr. Henn is dedicated to providing the best possible care, while maintaining a relaxed environment for his patients. He believes it is important to take the time to listen to each patient and then encourages him or her to take part in the decision-making process.

If surgery is necessary, he guides patients before and after their procedure to ensure they achieve the maximal benefit and recover to their full potential.
