Our Physicians

Robert W. Henderson, M.D.

Robert W. Henderson, M.D. graduated from the University of Arkansas College of Medicine in 1972. He then came to Dallas for post-graduate training at St. Paul Hospital and practiced medicine in Dallas for his entire career. He joined Dr. Brady Allen in 1994 at which time he focused on HIV medicine. He and Dr. Allen continued to work together at several locations. In May 2005, they joined Dr. David Lee when he opened what is now known as Uptown Physicians Group on Carlisle. Dr. Henderson retired from the practice of medicine in September 2011 after 38 wonderful years. He describes the last 6 years at Uptown Physicians Group as the happiest years of his career. Saying good-bye to his patients over the three months before leaving was a heartwarming and humbling experience given the outpouring of appreciation, kind words, cards, and letters that he received from his patients—many of whom had been patients for over 30 years. He plans to travel and spend more time with his partner and family. He sincerely thanks all of his patients for their trust and loyalty over the years and wishes them good health and happiness.
