I had a Heart Attack in Colorado 18 years ago where Dr. Jenkins did my post follow up. Recently I needed angio (Exploratory) and due to my high regard for him flew to ID to have the procedure there. 3 Stents later my opinion of him remains the same. Super knowledgeable, Confident, experienced and in my opinion he practices medicine to truly help people! He has made my quality of life better.

I always have a pleasant visit at Dr. Jenkins office. The receptionist and nurses are friendly. Dr. Jenkins is down to earth and I feel comfortable with him. He tells me I have a 'happy heart' . I had a cardiologist in Spokane with Heart Clinics NW but I really like Dr. Jenkins a whole lot better! I really appreciate that he recommends and ECHO and EKG every year so that I know my heart is healthy.

Dr. Jenkins has been my cardiologist for 5 years and has always provided great feed back and input to help me manage my Cardiovascular Disease. He takes time to explain concerns and any changes in treatment to ensure I understand the regimen he has recommended. I will be moving away form Idaho in a few months and hope that I can find another truly professional and caring cardiologist.

He takes an appropriate (to me) amount of time in the examination, is through in following up on information kept on the computer system, and allows time if I had a question needing an answer. He recommends adjustments to the medications when needed, I leave feeling comfortable with the process and know that nothing he can do will guarantee that I won't walk out of the exam and fall over dead from a heart attack. Besides I have the feeling he cares, not much more I can ask for??

He did my 2 stents in December and January and was fantastic in his explanation, bedside manner and follow up care. Has answered every question and addressed the one problem I had after the January stent in a very prompt and helpful manner. I don't tolerate a statin and he worked with me on lowering my cholesterol in other ways. Would and do recommend him to anyone needing a Heart Doctor and his nurse is also very kind and helpful. Office staff in Sandpoint and CDA are also very professional.

About Me

Care Philosophy

I practice state of the art cardiology, nuclear cardiology and interventional cardiology in a large practice of Cardiologists serving the Inland Northwest. I believe in managing the cause or root of the problem- not just placing that important stent, doing procedures or referring for surgery. I want to manage the blood pressure, cholesterol, diet and lifestyle, if we are going to be successful together in managing heart disease.Less...
