Any and all questions were answered. After 9 surgeries with other doctors that were not a success, his surgery was finally a success. Staff are also excellent as well.

I liked Dr. Jenkins very much. My surgery went very well and the only post-surgical pain I had was a stiff neck. I recommend him without any reservations. He explained the surgery such that I understood what would be happening to me.

After seeing 2 other doctors without relief, I saw Dr. Jenkins who diagnosed me immediately. I had surgery within 6 weeks and have not looked back since. I would have no hesitation in recommending Dr. Jenkins. His staff are amazing and most helpful.

I have been through both cervical and lumbar fusions with Dr Jenkins. After almost 6 years of daily pain, I am finally pain free and walking around. His incisions are truly works of art, and my range of motion is better than I expected. I had the best possible outcome I could have hoped for! Dr Jenkins gave me my life back, what else can I say!

I met Dr Jenkins after undergoing a failed ACDF procedure (done by Sean McCance) . I was desperate; I had dysphagia, dysphonia,, nonunion & chronic pain that was not compatible w living. He gave me my life back. A few months later he fused the anterior side of my lumbar spine & days later corrected my scoliosis. I trust him completely. He’s the only one I’ll ever let touch my spine. If you need a brilliant neurosurgeon who actually cares-he’s your guy. He’s the best (& Sarah Nicol is great too).

Facing my 3rd spinal surgery with Dr. Jenkins in 4 years. Good outcome on first 2 - cervical spine. Unfortunately, I have kyphosis and herniations in thoracic spine causing great pain. Family encouraged me to get 2nd opinion. That doc said first I needed surgery. Then sent me for more tests and said surgery won't help me. Didn't have an answer about what to do for pain. Turns out he didn't even address what Dr. Jenkins' treatment plan said. I only trust Dr. Jenkins. He is an amazing neurosurgeon

I?ve recently completed my six months-post surgery check-up with Dr. Jenkins and cannot describe how satisfied I am with the services that I received. After receiving an initial diagnosis in the ER, I was able to meet with Dr. Jenkins and his incredibly talented nurse practitioner, Sarah Nichol, within two days. Dr. Jenkins conducted a cervical laminoplasty to relieve tension on my spinal canal. By 11pm the night of the surgery Dr. Jenkins had me walking on the neurosurgery recovery floor.

I was operated on for sciatica and fused bones in the neck. Dr. Jenkins explained what he was going to do and the team that would be assembled in the OR. Could not have asked for better results. Have had ZERO back and leg pain from the sciatica operation and have pain free and comfortable neck movement. Office staff and PA are outstanding with 100 percent attention to detail. Hospital professionals and staff also outstanding.

Dr. Arthur Jenkins and his team are top notch. Upon examining me the first time, Dr. Jenkins recommended physical therapy and pain management. He reserves surgery as a final option. His approach is to do the least harm to the patient. I eventually needed surgery and Dr. Jenkins performed an anterior L5/S1 fusion in May of 2015. I feel so much better after the surgery. I never feel rushed out of his office. His staff is very professional and courteous; especially Sarah, his nurse practitioner.

After 3 spinal surgeries with Dr Jenkins (& crew), over the past 8 to 9 years, I'm self-evidently a repeat customer, as my genes haven't been too kind to me. I trust Dr Jenkins. Other physicians I regularly see long-ago insisted I go to him. I appreciate his generosity with his advice (I still see him for follow-ups), his time, efforts, and recommendations re other physicians. I heartily congratulate him on the quality of his staff. Five stars indeed, though he deserves the whole constellation.

I have had 3 cervical fusions with Dr. Jenkins and each time, he has thoroughly explained the situation, his corrective procedure & the team he was assembling to perform the surgery. He always made me feel extremely confident about having the surgery & the results were always positive. He always answers his emails & has an excellent Clinical Coordinator (Sarah Herrera Nicol) & office support staff which are all a huge help before, during and after the procedure. I highly recommend Dr. Jenkins.
