Ratings for Dr. W. Hendriks
First off, Dr Hendricks' nurse Christina is very rude. Every time I have to call for an appointment, I am out off by her. She is not very helpful and tells me to go to emerge for prescription refills when I cannot get in to my Dr Hendriks. The wait time to get in with this dr is about two months because although he is at max capacity he continues to accept new patients. He will write a prescription for anything (all of my friends get their narcs from him) without needing proof of why they are needed. He writes Rxs for benzodiazepines like nothing just to keep people coming back. This doctor writes prescriptions but will not investigate or get to the bottom of the root cause. His prescriptions are often wrong, leaving me waiting days or in a couple of situations weeks! Because he is arrogant and will not respond to my pharmacys' fax requests for him to fix my prescription. He has prescribed me antibiotics I'm allergic to even though he is aware of my allergies, for example. Just an arrogant, ignorant, rushed doctor. Unless you're looking for an easy prescription, nobody sick should ever waste their time with this man.
Probably one of the best dr's i have ever met, I firmly believe he saved my life, and when i requested hip replacement he had me in in only a few short months, Thank you!!!!!!!! If you are fortunate to have him as your family Dr. you will be well looked after
I worked with Dr Hendricks in Wetadkiwin 15 years ago. I was in a different office from him but he often performed anaesthesia for my patients and I worked along side him and other doctors in the ER at Wetaskiwin. He had an extremely pleasant personality and he had an encyclopedic knowledge of medicine. His personality was awesome but he remained modest regarding his medical skills. His knowledge often came to the fore when he joined us at evening post-graduate education. If he is your doctor I strongly believe you are in excellent hands. An ex Wetadkiwin physician.
Dr. Hendriks is the best dr. He delivered all 3 of my babies and he has an amazing technique so you don't tear. I've been in delivery rooms with other people and I was horrified by their technique. Since he doesn't do deliveries anymore, that means my baby days are over too as I wouldn't want any other dr. He is patient and kind. Great with kids. He got me into surgery within a day of seeing him (I had been to ER with my problem and was fluffed off). When he sees a problem that requires a specialist his ego doesn't get in the way and gets you to the best possible specialists. He got my one son into specialists within a few days. His patient load is high because he is a great dr. The wait time can be high but he is just giving everyone the time they need. It isn't as bad now since he gave up deliveries. I guess people didn't realize that he had to take off to the hospital to deliver a baby. He is an amazing doctor and our small town is lucky to have such a doctor.
Hendriks has been my family doctor for my entire life. My dad is a medic, and Hendriks is the only doc in town he trusts enough to listen to. He's got one of the largest patient base in Wetaskiwin, so if you go there and think you know more than he does about medicine, or are just there because you've got the sniffles, he's not going to coddle you. You're wasting his time, and you're wasting his patients time. If you go, though, and have a sincere medical issue, he'll be with you every step of the way. He kept my grandmother alive and relatively well a decade longer than other doctors gave her, through his "pill pushing" (read: accurate prescriptions). If you find him rude, it's probably because he's got no patience for idiots. If you find him a pill pusher, it's because you're an idiot, and he's a doctor. If you think he killed your ________, he's probably the only reason they lived as long as they did.
Dr.Hendrix delivered my baby. He was rude and basically a jerk. I was a first time mother and he thought i wasn't in labour and sent me home, where I promptly returned from as it became apparent I was in labour. Upon my return to the hospital it was too late for drugs and I had to deliver a 8.6lb baby without any pain medicine.To opt it off he was a rude pushy jerk during the birth. He made me push to fast and I tore. He also was just a jerk in general, he kept saying things like well if the mother would just push, and thing of that nature. I was pushing.I had a giant headed baby. He was arrogant and rude, and thinks much to highly of himself. I would not only not recommend him, I would advise all women who are pregnant to go to grey nuns to avoid the chance of having him deliver your baby. It was a horrible experience. He should maybe e a family doctor only. But certainly not deliver babies.
He was not my regular Dr but we were sent to him for prenatal care. He delivered my daughter 2 yrs ago. This was my second birth and thanks to him it was a beautiful experience! His calm and reassuring manner allowed us to have a drug free birth (which I really wanted). I wish he could know how much he touched our lives! He even managed to keep my Husband calm!
This doctor damn near killed my father-in-law. He was horrible. This 'doctor' is a pill pusher, and will not help anyone. The wait times in his office are astronomical (4hr wait time for a VERY ill man, and he HAD an appointment). I would never go to this doctor, I would never refer someone to him..... unless they want to either get worse then you are..... or die.
If had not been for Dr.Hendriks I would not here typing this. His knowledge, his connections, his reputation in the medical field and last but not least his concern for his patients saved my life. Like most people who are perfectionests they are sometimes misunderstood by thier patients. He works hard for the hosiptal and his patients. I do not find him to be a "PILL PUSHER" at all. He works to find the cause and treats that, not the symptoms. I thinks those comments from people saying he is a "PILL PUSHER" are from people, he will not give the drugs and pills they want. So they slam him here.
