Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Jenkins "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."

Patient Comments (15)
in Sagle, ID |
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.
in Pinehurst, ID |
Great job!
in Noxon, MT |
Professional friendliness. Confident in his handling of my heart condition
in Sandpoint, ID |
Dr. Jenkins and his office personnel are easy to work with and very professional. He is an excellent Cardiologist and I feel that the North Idaho community is lucky to have him here.
in Sandpoint, ID |
The likelihood of recommending Dr. Jenkins is very high. I had a very good meeting with Dr. Jenkins and he gave me a very good evaluation. He is a very qualified cardiologist and also a very intelligent, courteous and gracious man. It is a pleasure to have him as my cardiologist. The office staff is also polite and helpful.
in Foster |
Outstanding friendly helpful demeanor, with a focus on long term maintenance of heart health. Great Doctor, great facility, and a great organization behind him.
in Sagle, ID |
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.
in Spirit Lake Idaho |
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.
Sandpoint, ID |
Dr. Jenkins is very knowledgeable, compassionate, straightforward, and up to date. He provides excellent education and is always willing to answer any questions.
in Clark Fork Id. |
Great care is always given. Takes time to explain .Very thorough exams
in Hayden, ID |
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??
in Noxon, MT |
Dr, Jenkins saved my life and has given me excellent care ever since. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a first class cardiologist.
in Hayden |
Dr. Jenkins treats me with respect, listens to what I have to say and is truly concerned about my health.
in Priest River, ID |
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.
in Hayden Idaho |
Dr Jenkins has been a great heart Dr. He is very good at his profession and a very caring man. I have had him perform a few surgery sand I can't say enough positive about him.
