Dr. Jenkins was my Dotor and my rheumatologist for ten years. She saved my life by figuring out that I had hemochromatosis, got me set up for treatment at the National Institute of Health, and she would still be my doctor had I not moved out of State. She is outstanding!

Dr. Jenkins is not taking new patients. So says the rude lady that answered the phone and left me on hold.

Although her specialty is rheumatology, she doe GP work at GIMG and did me right when I saw her. Nailed my problem, sent me off to a specialist, got some surgery and I'm good as new. Well, old and functional. But I'll tak it.

I have no car and a foot injury that I was referred to a rheumatologist for and this is literally the most accessible doctor to me (the next closest is in DC...yeah, I want to spend 55 min on the metro to go to a doctor...) this lazy doc is apparently not taking any new patients! So now I have to go out of my way to DC. I've been dealing with this foot issue 5 months now, I want some relief already!

Dr. Jenkins has been my doctor for about 20 years. She really cares and she listens. She will call me herself if she feels something is important. Any specialist she recommends is always excellent. When I tell other doctors that she is my internist, they always say, "She's very good." I trust her completely. I know others who see her and they feel the same as I do.

Staff are rude, appointments are never available and Dr. Jenkins doesn't listen. I will never go back.

Dr. Jenkins has been my doctor for over 13 years treating me for a painful condition all over my body. I have been so sick to the point over the years that I thought about taking my life as the pain was so severe. I've seen numerous doctors over the years, some good, some not so much. However, once I go to see her, just her bedside manners, her taking the time to talk with me, showing and demonstrating that she cares has helped me to push through what seems like a night-mare.
