Very Compassionate!
Dr Jenkins is a rare find in the field of psychiatry! I’ve never had a psychiatrist that really listens and takes TIME with their patients. Usually I feel hurried out the door and leave wondering if we both truly communicated. I’ve never felt that way with Dr Jenkins. I feel that he loves his job and truly cares for his patients. He’s a great listener and gives valuable insights, responses and explanations. He’s one in a million!

The Yoda of Psychiatry
I call him Yoda for a lot of reasons, but specifically because he cuts through my BS in 5 words or less and gets right to the issue, but without ANY admonishment or judgment. He’s the real deal. When I started seeing him, my PTSD was so bad I thought there could be no getting better. He changed that with his empathy, information, and know how. I trust this guy to no end.

Absolutely the Best!
I have seen Dr. Jenkins for years and you will not find a psychiatrist so versed in meds or so caring for his patients. Dr. Jenkins and his entire staff are some of the best, and make you feel like their only patient.

The only specialist I've ever trusted
Dr. Jenkins is an exceptional diagnostic MD. Not only has he been able to pinpoint my issues he is cautious with medication. 3 years in his care and I'm constantly improving. No one will ever treat my mental health but him personally. Highly recommend you see him.

I was a patient of Dr Jenkins and before. He ever saw me I was judged and treated very unprofessionally and with no compassion at all. He had no concern about how I had been feeling or how I was doing on my meds. Etc. Just because a UA shoes positive doesn't mean you are a drug addict and that's what he said to me and didn't care to hear what I had to say or anything else. I just walked out!! I don't deserve being ridiculed and called a liar. Very Very unprofessional!!
