Treatment Philosophy

I have worked my entire career in the oncology field since obtaining my BSN degree in 1992. I received my Master’s degree and Nurse Practitioner certification at the University of Pennsylvania. Throughout my career, I have valued my patient interactions and colleagues, as well as the advancements in cancer treatment.

In 2016, I began working with the breast surgery team at Fox Chase in managing benign breast conditions and breast cancer survivors. In my current role with Clinical Genetics, I evaluate high-risk patients based on their personal medical history, family history of cancer, and genetic mutations. I help to guide these patients with high-risk screening and interventions to decrease cancer risk.

    Excellent care, even noticed another issue I had on exam and noted it and reported to my primary doctor who contacted me for follow-up. If your care provided didn't tell me or my doctor, might not have been treated and remedied in a timely manner.

    I had a mammogram prior to appointment with Kathleen Henderson NP. She reviewed results with me, answered all my questions. She even walked to Radiology to discuss if ultrasound was required at this time, which it was not. [...] Kathleen Henderson knew my medical history, took her time with examination, answered all questions. She speaks directly to you, eye contact, I was very pleased with my appointment. I think Kathleen Henderson is wonderful!
