When I met Dr Jakes I did not get warm fuzzy feelings, BUT when I left his office I was so very thankful for his expertise. After a year of being dismissed by other medical professionals, he listened to my story and performed a thorough assessment. He asked a lot of questions and answered all of my questions. I left his office happy and with a treatment plan. I am an RN and Dr Jakes did a great job today! I read the reviews before I went and felt the need to respond. Thank you Dr Jakes.

Dr. J. Jakes is a bit reserved and a little stiff. However, he knows his stuff. He does not waist time and gets to work immediately. My waiting time was about 15 minuets and my total visit about 45. His nursing folks anticipate his needs. He fixed a frozen finger and helped with shoulder pain, including a shot. After three months the symptoms have not come back. He is not a hale-fellows-well-met kind of guy. He is just a fine, professional doctor.
