About Our Practice
Shelby Dermatology opened in 2006, to serve Shelby county and surrounding areas. Our goal has always been two-fold; to deliver excellent dermatology health care and foster congeniality among staff and patients. Resultantly, our patients have found our office not to be just a skin clinic, but a holistic dermatology practice that welcomes them in spirit while healing their skin problems and bettering their skin health. While focusing on skin disease and treatment is a priority, we also remain mindful of the increasing costs of health care and feel it is our responsibility to reduce costs on our end -- without compromising care. We are ethical doctors working side by side with a competent and friendly staff to deliver the best dermatology care to our patients in a welcoming environment.
We love helping our patients look and feel their best, with our broad range of cosmetic services that are designed to replenish your confidence.

Dr. Bob Henderson is thorough and attentive. His office staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. I purchased some skincare products that I have loved. He has seen my husband, my son and me. We drive from Vestavia to Alabaster to see him and Dr. Bourgeois. Efficient, friendly, attentive, thorough and skilled. Our family highly recommends this practice, Shelby Dermatology.
After two years of suffering with a severe rash, Dr Henderson helped me so much. His office staff is great too.
