About Amy Hendrix, PA

Amy Hendrix worked at Northwest Dermatology while earning her Bachelor of Nursing degree from Madonna University in Livonia, MI. It was during this time she realized her desire to specialize in dermatology. She continued to work there for one year as a Registered Nurse. Although she loved dermatology, she knew that she would enhance her career and knowledge of medicine by experiencing the hospital environment.

Amy became proficient at balancing her work as a full time nurse, mother, nurse practitioner student, and nursing school professor at the University of Detroit Mercy in Detroit, MI.

She then worked at a private dermatology practice in Bloomfield Hills, MI where she gained further experience in treating disorders of the skin, hair and nails—medically, surgically and cosmetically. Amy furthered her dermatology training in Pittsburgh, PA for one year before taking permanent residence in Reading, PA. Amy quotes, “With intensive attention to detail, my goal is perfection in medical as well as cosmetic results and patient happiness.”
