My experience with Dr. Jenkins has been poor at best. He does NOT listen to patients, instead he makes little quips and snide replies. I am diabetic and have a hypothyroid condition. When I would tell him how I am feeling, he would smirk and talk down to me. I will not return to his office, and I do not recommend this doctor for anyone who is proactive with their health, or who is seeing specialists because these anger this physician. He's a dinosaur physician, he needs to modernize.

Very friendly nursing staff;, very qualified. All in all a very pleasant and highly efficient people. I felt that for the first time in my life that I had a doctor who cared about me personally and knew what he was doing. Five stars from start to finish.
in Cookeville, TN |
Dr. Jenkins always errs on the side of caution. I trust him more than any doctor I have ever had. His experience and caring are very important to me. He calls a spade a spade and I have no doubt about his diagnosis when I leave his office. If he isn't experienced with my condition, he refers me to the very best person to address the issue.
