I have been seeing Dr. Jerkins sense I was 15 when I was first diagnosed with hyperthyroidism. I would not trust anyone else to treat me. She spends the appointment making sure that I am comfortable and that all my questions are answered. I have recommended her to multiple people and they say the same thing. Dr. Jerkins is a Life saver.

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.
