It is with mixed emotions, we announce the departure of Dr. Sophia J. Hendrick.

Aside from being East Tennessee’s only board-certified pediatric dermatologist, Dr. Hendrick has also become our mentor, family, and friend. We could not be more grateful for her countless contributions and unconditional commitment to our practice and her patients. She will without a doubt, be undeniably missed by our community.

Though it’s never easy losing one of your own, it brings us great consolation knowing she will be moving closer to her family all while progressing her dermatological career.

In the meantime, we continue to encourage referring physicians to place their pediatric patients with our providers in her absence.

On behalf of the physicians and staff at Knoxville Institute of Dermatology, please join us in congratulating and bidding farewell to Dr. Sophia Hendrick as she embarks on her newest journey with her family in Temple, Texas.
