I came to see dr. Jeffords without insurance. Knowing I was going to have to pay more was fine with me. She gave me a three month supply of a number of different medications. When I got to the pharmacy my testosterone was only a one month supply. When calling her back, she said she needed to do a blood panel on me. Yet when I just had got done seeing her, they gave me a blood panel. She knew I don't have insurance, and wanted me to go back in for another blood panel. And for a physical. None of this made any sense to me, she could have given me my medications, and gotten it finished and done the first time. Now I'm looking at multiple visits, and a physical when I don't need it. She gave me a physical less than a year ago. I'm tired of this practice! I will never go back to Dr Jeffords!

I found Dr. Jeffers to be very knowledgeable, extremely kind, considerate & professional without being stuff. She listened, a lost art, & gave her recommendations. I came to her after looking long & hard for an Internal med doc. I found a gem. The office is a little stiff, but she is NOT. Thank you.

I would never recommend her to any one. I do believe she is a good doctor but her staff is horrible. They don't listen, they are argumentative anecdotes when you try too give them the correct information they call you a liar. This is the worst office I have ever been to. They wouldn't correct the billing until I told them I would report them for insurance fraud. Two days later I got a letter that she would no longer see me.

Dr Jeffords is a pleasant woman, however her follow-thru and competence are not up to par. While appointments are easy to get, she seemed vaguely confused while we spoke. She ordered the wrong test including an unnecessary ABG. She told me it was a lab mistake, but it was what she ordered. She promised to call with results, however she never called and the results are still unavailable to me. To top things off; she left the clinic without notice to the patients. I'm out hundreds of dollars
