I’m so blessed and thankful for Dr. Jenkins. He is caring, compassionate, and understanding. He listened to my concerns and answered my questions without rushing me. It’s nice to have a physician who talks with you and doesn’t make you feel like a number at the DMV. It’s nice when a physician treats the patient and not their file.
