    Obtuse, arrogant, deceptive, sexist, puerile. Obtuse in reading social cues; likely autistic. Moreover he arrogantly enshrines his first (autistic) impressions as infallible as a matter of policy, while pretending to consider data to the contrary. I’d heard Jenson was supportive of a friend’s son, but Jenson constantly belittled me (I’m female), puerilely dissed my professional interest in history (“History is so depressing!”) and deliberately sabotaged my professional goals. Conclusion: Toxic

    Very poor communication with this doctor. I am a former patient of his trying to obtain my medical records. He refuses to release my records and doesn’t have the decency to even call me back. Doesn’t seem like too much to ask given the thousands of dollars paid to this man. Seems he only cares if there’s a check involved. Treatment average. Would not recommend.
