Learn about 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.

Dr. Jerkins is by far the best Dr. I've been to. I have a very rare condition that she totally understands and treats it aggressively. She listens to the patient instead of just thinking that numbers tell the entire story. She is a true gem!!!

2nd time fail appointment. We go all the way to Nashville and into Dr. Jerk-ins office Just for them to tell me for the 2nd time they have cancel my appointment. That is 2 times I drove all the way to Nashville but let's not forget the 2 appointments cancel because the doctor decided to go out of town on vacation. It takes me 3 to 6 months to get a appointment. They said we can get you back in we made a mistake... I said no ma'am I made a mistake by choosing the wrong doctor.

I have been seeing Dr.Jerkins for about 8 years. My back went out on a Friday morning which she is CLOSED so my husband called and canceled my appt at 8 a.m for my 11:00 a.m appt. I get a call back from the front desk that I will have to pay $25 for no showing. I refused then I got a letter that said I was noncomplying. I called the office for weeks and couldn't;t get through to speak to someone. I had to have back surgery and got fired! Never got a call back from management or anyone.

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.
