Dr. Jensen has changed our family's life. Our child, who we adopted out of foster care and has serious attachment difficulties, impulse control issues, and Tourette's Syndrome, is now seeing Dr. Jensen for medication management. He has been able to identify a mix of medications that has really improved his mood, his behavior at home, and at school. His reactivity to requests or corrections has really changed. He is able to take feedback in a way that is more calm. He's still a teenager, but we can actually talk to him, and he even will express affection, appreciation and sometimes even admit he was wrong! This is a big deal for all of us. Dr. Jensen is also easy to reach by email or phone and is very responsive and reliable. Probably most importantly, our 14 year-old actually doesn't mind talking to him! Five stars for Dr. Jensen.

I had an excellent experience being treated by Dr. Jensen for panic and anxiety. Prior to seeing him, I had started having panic attacks many times a day, had lost a lot of weight, was unable able to get quality sleep, and felt completely hopeless. At my first appointment, Dr. Jensen’s calming bedside manner, humorous attitude, knowledgable answers to all my questions, and assurances that I would get better gave me my first glimmer of hope. The treatments prescribed by him were effective and worked how he said they would. He was exceptionally good at setting my expectations when starting a new medication so a side effect never caught me by surprise. He always responded very quickly to emailed questions with helpful answers, which made me feel cared for in between appointments. Dr. Jensen’s care in conjunction with therapy helped me get my life back. I’m now no longer on any medications. I cannot recommend Dr. Jensen highly enough to anyone suffering from anxiety or panic.

There are not enough words in the world to adequately express how wonderful this man is! I suffered for at least 12 years with undiagnosed bipolar disorder. I went to multiple doctors during that time and only Dr. Jensen was able to help me. Had I found him sooner, I believe I would have made very different choices in my life and it would have saved me years of unnecessary torment and hell. I'm now properly medicated and getting my life back on track. Thank you Dr. Jensen for saving me!
