Dr. Carolyn Hendricks has the following 2 specialties
- Medical Oncology
Think of an oncologist as your main physician for cancer care. After being diagnosed, you’ll meet regularly with an oncologist to explore and manage your treatment options, as well as monitor your condition throughout the process. Medical oncologists are extremely knowledgeable in various types of cancer treatment and can recommend the right method for the type and stage of cancer you’re facing.
They may also refer you to additional specialists throughout your care, but they will always be your home base for questions and support. It’s also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
- Breast Cancer
- Metastatic Breast Cancer

Dr. Hendricks had no bed side manners, was rude, and ALWAYS late. My appointment would be at 9:30 AM and come to find out she doesn't comes in until 10 AM. She then takes another 15-20 minutes in her office drinking coffee and looking over your file because she no idea who you are. 45 minutes wasted. My visits with her were no more than 5 - 10 minutes. I was never told what to expect during my chemo therapy. I learned that hair fell out after a few weeks, only because my hair began falling off my head in chunks at work. I was terrified, No, I would not recommend this doctor to anyone at any time.
I don't usually review doctors online, but I feel I must speak up about my experience with Dr. Hendricks. A breast cancer diagnosis of any kind is stressful enough, but to be treated rudely, dismissed, and not have reasonable questions answered makes the whole experience much worse. I saw Dr. Hendricks' name on the Washington's Top Doctors List and thought she would be an excellent choice, but I left my appointment wondering, "What on earth just happened there?" After going home and bursting into tears, I've decided it's not worth my time. I'll find somebody with some compassion and patience.
Lovely staff.... After a diagnosis of triple negative breast cancer at first she was great. Had many issues with chemo. Dr. Hendericks became very negative and somewhat rude. I had to seek treatment at another facility. I am thankful to her staff only for seeing something was wrong during treatment... And then to my husband for his perseverance in seeking treatment elsewhere. She was not a good fit for my situation.
