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.

Love this Doctor and his staff. Very prompt service (no waiting a long time in the waiting room), Dr. Jenkins is easy with you but tells you how it is. I felt like I finally had a doctor who truly listen aand understood what I was saying, so nice for a change.
