Dr. Mark V Hendricks has the following 3 specialties
- Critical Care Medicine
Also sometimes referred to as intensivists, critical care specialists are physicians with specialized training in the diagnosis and management of life-threatening conditions. Some of these conditions affect vital organs like the heart and lungs, those that make breathing difficult or impossible, and those that affect entire organ systems, like the renal system.
Critical care specialists are typically found in a hospital's intensive care unit where they monitor patients with life-threatening conditions and make determinations as to the best course of treatment.
- Sleep Medicine
A sleep medicine specialist is specially trained in diagnosing and treating disorders involving sleep.
Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and insomnia are very common and can often cause other serious health issues, such as depression, asthma, and migraines. Sleep medicine specialists often work in sleep centers where they observe a patient while sleeping and monitor brain waves, behavior, and vital signs in order to identify the causes of sleep disturbance, or an inability to sleep (insomnia).
Sleep medicine specialists treat patients through advising on sleep hygiene, providing cognitive behavioral therapy, using light therapy, or medical sleep aides.
- Pulmonary Disease
A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.

I love Dr. Hendricks and his NP. I've been a patient for several years now. He knows I'm a smoker but has never been rude to me about it. He knows I'm smart enough to know the dangers. It does not matter if I see him or his NP love them both. I've never had problem getting an appointment. His office is generally friendly. I would recommend him to my family or friends.
He acted like he didn't believe a word I said even though I took in numerous test results. Instead of telling me what I actually had, which he couldn't, he just kept telling me it was NOT what I have been diagnosed with for 3 months. His NP, Ashley Hale was rude, and she nor the dr. offered any condolences or sympathy at all when I was crying my eyes out. A great way to show you care. I will never go back there again and I already know two of his patients that will not return because of the way he treated me.
I've been a patient of Dr. Hendricks for at least 11 years. He's the BEST as far as I and my family are concern. He's saved my life at least twice. I have reccomended Dr.Hendricks to any one I know who has lung problems.
