Provider Reviews

Though Dr. Jorgenson has become a Hospitalist and no longer sees patients in Internal Medicine, he was my Internist for 17 years. I could not have asked for a finer, more compassionate, or more competent doctor than him. So, THANK YOU, Dr. Jorgenson!

Review for Dr. Jorgenson

Dr. Ginete always spends the time needed for my visits. He cares and works well with my primary care physician. Together they have improved my health greatly.

Review for Dr. Ginete

She is rude and never remembered me. She misdiagnosed me twice, one of them was shingles. And after I had my son she asked me if I wanted to smother him with a pillow.. not a good doctor.

I now have an amazing Dr who has actually heard me, weighed my options and taken the time to assess my overall health. I couldn't be more grateful for his attention to detail and actually HEARing me!
