I went to Dr. Jenkins with lower back pain, he performed surgery and when I went to another Doctor a few years later because of pain in my back I found out Dr. Jenkins performed the wrong surgery, and now I have to have another operation, not only that he lies about his patients restrictions, I was trying to get back into the workforce and needed help, went to DVR, they asked him for a report and he told them I had no restrictions and was 100% okay, so they wouldn't help me, i am now on S.S.D.
