Initial first meeting left me with a feeling that this was a nice doctor....she gave fast, professional advise. Was interested and asked questions to the point of the problem. I felt that this was a competent professional. The tone/attitude of the office was positive, like everyone enjoyed their job.

As the third surgeon to operate on my persistent fistula, Dr. Jenkins is the one who resolved the problem, and for that I am so grateful. Once she took my case, she was persistent in seeking solutions, using newer procedures and never once giving up or abandoning me. In my book, she is simply the best! I can recommend her highly enough. She's an excellent surgeon and a kind and caring person. Thank you & Bless you, Dr. Jenkins!

Dr. Jenkins is fantastic at what she does. The Dr makes you feel as normal as possible and pays great attention to detail. I see in her eyes she cares for her patients and will not stop until they are perfect. I have had excellent surgical care and follow up with her and her great staff.

Finding a specialist, one that you feel comfortable with and trust, is hard. I consider myself blessed for finding Dr. Jenkins. Dr. Jenkins is the first doctor in many years that I feel has listened, cared, and did more than just try to fix a situation which was caused by a larger problem. I have IBS-D and with Dr. Jenkin's treatment I feel hopeful for the first time in years. I've been to other doctors, good ones, but Dr. Jenkins is the best I've seen. She's professional, thorough and caring.

Dr. Jenkins stands out in her field. I highly recommend her. I was fearful of having a colonoscopy and procrastinated for 4 years...I shouldn't have! As a result I had surgery, and I can tell you out of the many doctors I've seen over my lifetime of being a mom of 4 children, Dr. Jenkins is extremely professional, caring, and outstanding as a Medical Doctor!
