She did NOT listen to my medical history; she did NOT address my concerns; she did NOT order blood work nor urine test (which should be common for all new patients) - I requested same from her and finally was given the tests. She referred me a doctor for my problem however, since she didn't listen to my complaints, I was referred to a physician who does NOT treat nor address physical issues. Since her BA is in Philosophy, makes me question what her philosophy is re medical care!

I didn’t like the fact they charge for office visits when you aren’t even in the same state. They ripped off Medicare for an office visit because I called for a refill on an Rx. Spoke with the nurse, they denied the refill and had the audacity to charge ! Medicare $85. That is unethical.

Dr. Jezierski is very knowledgeable & thorough with all of her examinations for me. If she doesn't know the answer she recommends another doctor to review my case. I feel very comfortable with Dr. Jezierski's services given to me. I would recommend her, definitely.

I had scheduled an appointment for a physical and to have some clearance paperwork filled out so that I could move overseas. The first appointment went pretty smoothly, but the paperwork was filled out outside of the patient exam room. I typically see Dr. Okerblom, so I was a little disappointed to learn she was unavailable and on maternity leave. However, I accepted seeing Dr. Jezierski instead. As stated, she filled out my form outside of the exam room, so she did not consult me about her notes. Although she had not previously examined me or prescribed me my low dosage of anxiety medication, she recommended that I see a psychiatrist at my next location. This was completely unwarranted, as I had not been to a counselor in three years, and only went three times in university. Dr. Jezierski did not inquire about my history with the medication, or consult me about any other points on the form. Because of this, my paperwork was halted and my clearance for travel was nearly denied. Upon he

I find Dr. Jezierski to be a great doctor and person. I don't want a doctor to beat around the bush or simply send me to a specialist. I want a doctor to spend time getting to know me and my condition, then give me a plan to get better. She took so much time and effort to make sure I got the right treatment that I owe my good health to her. I love Dr. Jezierski!

I inherited this 'dr' from another practice 2 yrs ago and 1st appoint. she seemed hurried but nice. I was not comfortable that she questioned everything that ALL specialists had diagnosed for over 20 years. Two years later...she thinks she is "god". She has no compassion or warmth, if you ? anything she (in so many words) tells you how 'smart' she is- how stupid you are-then walks out. Myself, family, friends,co-workers etc...have sought (or are seeking) healthcare elsewhere. PLEASE BEWARE!

Some of these reviewers seem very petty. I have been going to Dr. Jezierski for at least 4 years now. I can tell you as someone that has been to numerous other doctors in the past, she is absolutely the best. She isn't going to sugarcoat anything when it comes to your health. She not only diagnosed something a dozen other doctors missed but she put in countless hours making sure I was taken care of. I owe my life to Dr. Jezierski.

The first time I saw her, she was very impersonal and rushed in our appointment. During that appointment I also told her that I had a phobia of needles and she pretty much said "well, get over it", so if you're looking for a doctor that's compassionate about phobias, keep looking. I later saw her again for a long term injury I was struggling with, and she offered very little help to try to diagnose what was wrong, and very little compassion about my pain and struggle. Very disappointed.

Dr. Jezierski is truly a gifted and caring physician. I have been to many docs in the area but she is by far the best. She is polite but gets straight to the point. I don't want a doctor to sugar coat everything. I needed to change some habits and she made sure I did. She saved my life.

I found her to be uninterested, arrogant and dismissive. She's rushed, doesn't appropriately answer or respond to patient concerns and pushes allergy testing and treatment as though she's getting kickbacks. I guess finding a good doctor is impossible in the central coast, hence, her overall 4 star rating. I've seen numerous physicians of varying specialties across 7 different states and she has been the worst by far.

Have been a patient for a long time and wouldn't consider seeing anyone else. She listens to all my concerns and asks questions to find out if I might not be mentioning something. During a routine exam she found a squamous cell cancer my dermatologist missed....I think she's better at diagnosing than my previous internist....she's the best!

Went to see Dr Jezierski for a referral for acupuncture and for a new problem I was having. Have not seen her for 2 years and am in my mid fourties. Being a nurse, I was appalled at the 3 total minutes she spent with me! No concern about ordering any labs, or any of my other medical problems, or talking to me about my new problem, just to say she suffered from the same thing. Several years ago when I first started seeing her, she cared. Today, sadly, a different story. Do not recommend.
