Overview

Specializing in hematology and oncology, Dr. Linda Hendricks joined Central Georgia Cancer Care in 2001. Dr. Hendricks earned a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 1990. The summer after graduating from Georgia Tech she worked as a lab director at the Skidaway Institute of Oceanography in Savannah, GA where she published on developing monoclonal antibodies to the egg protein of horseshoe crabs. In 1995 Dr. Hendricks graduated with her Medical Doctorate at the Medical College of Georgia (MCG) in Augusta, GA. She remained at MCG to complete her residency in Internal Medical in 1998 and was invited to serve as Chief Resident. Following her strong desire to pursue oncology, she instead began her fellowship in Hematology/Medical Oncology which she completed in 2000. She spent one year on faculty at the Medical College of Georgia where she was able to concentrate on clinical research in the field of hemoglobinopathies under the direction of Dr. Abdullah Kutlar. Originally from Jacksonville, Florida, Dr. Hendricks has known she wanted to be a doctor since the age of 5. Her agile mind, deep compassion and bold curiosity fuel excellence in her patient care, her clinical innovation and in her leadership roles. * The first woman to be elected as Chief of Staff at the Medical Center of Central Georgia, Dr. Hendricks currently serves as the Managing Partner of CGCC taking on responsibilities of a CEO in the practice. * Dr. Hendricks is the chair of the Breast Cancer Disease Site Team at MCNH and an Associate Professor at Mercer University School of Medicine. In 2002 she was recognized with the Mercer Faculty of the Year award. * She has served as the Medical Director of Hospice Care Options from 2003 to present and maintains Board Certification in both Hospice and Palliative Care in addition to Medical Oncology. * Dr. Hendricks is a valued participant in the Community Oncology Alliance and maintains close working relationships with colleagues at Emory University, Medical College Northside and Piedmont Hospitals in Atlanta as well as with her mentors at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University. * During the COVID19 pandemic Dr. Hendricks brought telemedicine to CGCC, an innovation she believes is long overdue.
