Wednesday, April 27, 2016

Dr. Amanda H. Hendricks received the distinction as “Best Pediatrician” in the Effingham Now’s Best of Effingham Awards for the third consecutive year, the publication announced today.

The awards allow voters to choose “bests” in more than 60 categories. Contest rules specify that all voters must submit their entries on original online ballots and that those ballots must have a minimum of 30 categories completed to be eligible.

“I love having the opportunity to work with children so that I can help them feel better,” Dr. Hendricks said. “No one goes into pediatrics who is not a fan of kids. I really enjoy the aspect of pediatrics that involve preventative care. I like to get to know families, to interact with them and to see them not only when they’re sick but when they’re well.”

“As much as possible, I like to instill into both parents and their children the idea that good healthy lifestyles and healthy attitudes towards wellness will definitely serve their children as they grow into adulthood.”

Dr. Amanda H. Hendricks earned her medical degree and performed her pediatric residency at the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta. She also performed a pediatric internship at the Medical College of Georgia. She is board-certified by the American Board of Pediatrics and is certified in Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS). She also belongs to the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Georgia Medical Society and the Medical Association of Georgia. She practices at SouthCoast Health’s location in Rincon. She is married and has three children and enjoys running, cooking and traveling.
