Dr. Hendricks is widely regarded as an expert in his field by Bariatric Medicine specialists across the globe because of his research activities, his published scientific papers on obesity treatment, and his many lectures and presentations at Physicians Symposiums, at The Obesity Society (TOS) Research Meetings, and at the American Board of Bariatric Medicine (ABBM) Annual Review Courses.  In addition, he is an FDA appointee to the FDA Endocrine and Metabolic Disease Advisory Committee.

Commitment to Excellence in Patient Care

Dr. Hendricks is committed to providing cutting-edge, state-of-the-art obesity management medical care to our patients. He devotes 15 to 20 hours weekly to staying current with new research findings, to conducting research studies with our patients and to writing research papers with colleagues across the U.S.  With this information at hand, Dr. Hendricks upgrades our obesity management methods when other methods prove more effective, and he consistently looks for proven new methods.

Dr. Hendricks believes we (Obesity Specialists) have a moral obligation to our patients and society as a whole to analyze our results, to report them in the medical literature, and to contribute to improvements in treatment. Many of our patients have and continue to participate anonymously in research studies.

These have included a four-year Full Tuition Scholarship at Rice University in Houston, Texas, awards at Rice of Phi Beta Kappa, the national collegiate honor society, and Sigma Xi, the national collegiate research honor society, and a four-year medical school Dean’s Tuition Scholarship at Columbia University in New York City.

During his early career as a pathologist, he was named to the Board of Directors of the California Society of Pathologists and was elected as President of this Society in 1986. After changing specialties from Pathology to Bariatric Medicine, he became an active member of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians (ASBP) and The Obesity Society (TOS).  He has served terms as a trustee on the governing boards of ASBP and the ABBM.

In 2009, the ASBP honored Dr. Hendricks by selecting him as the Bariatric Physician of the Year. The ASBP is a national medical society of physicians specializing in obesity treatment.

In 2010, the ASBP acknowledged his leadership and research contributions to the field of obesity treatment by naming him an Honorary Fellow of the ASBP. In the 52 years the ASBP has existed, only 20 other physicians have been awarded this honor.

In 2011, The ASBP awarded Dr. Hendricks with the Vernon B. Astler Award for his efforts as an ASBP member to advance ASBP’s place and purpose to the media, government and medical community, as Dr. Astler did in helping guide the society to secure a seat in the AMA House of Delegates.
