      Dr. Jerkins seems to be very detailed oriented and effective, but reaching her office is a total nightmare. Office hours are on the message as 8:30 - 4:00 Mon - Thur, but getting anyone to answer the phone or returning voicemails or emails is next to impossible. As a new patient, I have many questions that I can't get answers to and after waiting 4 months to get an appointment and another month for a follow-up appointment will be fruitless if I can't get the medications I was prescribed.

      Dr. Jerkins and her husband are wonderful, wonderful doctors. I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in June 2015, and she saved my life. I have never had a doctor that I could email anytime of the day and she will get back to me with an answer to my question within that same day. I would recommend her and her husband to anyone. She truly cares deeply about her patients and doesn't treat them as paychecks.

      I have been seeing Dr. Jerkins for over 20 years. I trust her implicitly with any medical problems I have. I highly recommend her. She is extremely smart and is able to diagnose conditions others cannot. She tells it like it is because she cares about her patients. I have recommended her to several friends. My family is very grateful to her for taking such good care of me for the past 20 years. I am a type 1 diabetic for 40+ years now. You cannot go wrong by choosing her as your doctor.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Jerkins' Care Philosophy

      As an endocrinologist who focuses on diabetes care, I want my patients to understand and participate in their treatment and learn to selfadjust their own medications including insulin to maximize their ability to take charge of their condition.
