It's been a long time since I've come across such a professional, knowledgeable, dedicated and compassionate doctor that Dr. Jenkins is. But what makes her such an amazing doctor is her caring, love, patience, understanding and concern she has continually given me and my brother. I say this because my brother who has dementia with lewy bodies was diagnosed with colon cancer back in 2015 and she has been there for us and the family every step of the way and is still with us today!

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 caught my cancer and had a treatment program in place soon after. I am sticking with her program and all is great. Dr Jenkins is great at what she does.

Dr. Jenkins brings a level of warmth and communication that far exceeded my experience with other doctors. I feel as though I'm getting the best medical treatment with Dr Jenkins and her 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!
