Without a doubt the rudest "doctor" I've ever had the displeasure of meeting. Disregarded me, my questions and concerns. This "doctor" literally told me she didn't care while I described my symptoms to her. Save yourself the misery and just go to Anchorage.

A close friend of mine--a medical professional, DPT degree, highly respected and in need of a neurologist had an appt to see Dr. Jessen as a new patient, and was 2 min late. Two minutes you guys! TWO. The new patient paperwork was completed and yet she was refused to be seen that 30 by the front desk staff, being told Dr. Jessen keeps a tight schedule and she'd need to reschedule her appointment. The choice was made NOT to reschedule. Good call! Need a new neurologist in Soldotna.
