I've been seeing her about 4 months and I have absolutely loved her from the first meeting. There can sometimes be a wait, but it's because she spends lots of time with each patient.

Dr. Djernes has been a tremendous benefit in helping me make significant improvements to my health since I started seeing her 2 months ago. She has always been thorough and keen to listen to me about how I feel. I appreciate how she takes the time to explain her diagnoses and the background behind them.

Although Dr. Djernes was very sweet, during my brief visit she constantly glanced at the clock. This was very distracting as I tried to described my symptoms. Then, when I returned for the sole purpose of going over test results Dr. Djernes glibly announced that she couldn't find them and dismissed me. I later found out that they had been sent days prior.
