What People Say About Dr. Peter Jenkin, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
so so. He seemed not so interested in severe itching condition and merely told me I had dermatitis and internal process. It turned out to be far more complex than that when I saw another dermatologist who did several biopsies, blood tests, and a chest x ray.

I would recommend Dr. Jenkin without hesitation to my family and friends. He gave me thoughtful advise and I am delighted with the result and resolution of my concern, thanks to Dr. Jenkin's care. The staff is a dream!! I feel like visiting them, just to say hello; that's how friendly all of them are. Thank you, I had a wonderful experience. And I waited eight days to write this review to make sure all was as I have expected.

Always prescribes Brand name Ointments. Went for a rash on Face, diagnosed as Fungal Infection, done some Lab test, prescribed a Brand Name Drug that costs 600$ Called up doctor's office and a follow up call again after 2 days got a Generic Ointment (15$) Used it for 1 month with no results. Meanwhile got the bills but no Lab report. Went to the Doctor again after 1 month,was told it is not Fungal infection but acne. Prescribed another Brand Name ointment inspite of my request for Generic...
