“I feel blessed to serve the San Antonio community,” said Dr. Henderson, whose practice is now located in Tower II, Suite 215 at 2833 Babcock Road. “I look forward to treating the whole family. Whether it’s a teenager’s school physical exam or treating a chronic disease suffered by a senior citizen, my patients know that I am here to help them maintain their health,” she added.
 
Dr. Henderson is board certified in family medicine and board eligible in geriatric medicine. She completed her Family Residency and Geriatric Fellowship with the Medical Center of Central Georgia/Mercer University School of Medicine.
 
“We are proud to welcome Dr. Rashida Henderson’s geriatric expertise to our CPG practice in the Medical Center area,” said Horace Robb, Vice President, operations, for the CHRISTUS Physician Group Southwest Region.
 
Physicians employed by CPG in San Antonio are affiliated with CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Health System. This alignment is part of a growing national trend, which allows doctors to focus on patient care rather than deal with the administrative burdens and costs of private practice.
