What People Say About Dr. Xavier Jenkins, MD

We here in Hernando County are fortunate to have such a skilled surgeon as Dr. Jenkins serving our community. My hernia repair was performed by Dr. Jenkins and his team using robotic assisted laparoscopy. There was no overnight hospital stay needed and I went home the day of surgery. There was very little pain during recovery and I don't know what kind of special healing powders he used, but my incisions were already itching like they were healing the next day. I was able to return to light duty work and driving my vehicle on day number five following surgery. His office staff explained to me on my follow up visit that some people heal faster than others, but since I never noticed that at any other time in my life, I attribute my rapid recovery to his surgical skills and his mastery of the medical technology with which he is both talented and obviously well trained. I also recognize that Dr. Jenkins surrounds himself with other caring professionals in his office & on his surgical team.

I recently had a Cholecystectomy. Dr Jenkins, made me feel at ease, before, and after. Great staff as well. This was my first visit with him, but hopefully my last. I highly recommend him, if necessary

I met Dr. Jenkins at Oak Hill Hospital Emergency Room with a Small Bowel Obstruction. He explained the Robotic Surgical Procedure to me and performed the surgery the following day. This minimally invasive procedure surgery reduced my recovery time, pain, and infection risks. Being a retired nurse, I highly recommend Dr. Jenkins as a gifted, compassionate, professional who truly cares about giving the very best care to his patients. Thank you Dr. Jenkins.

First time patient. Dr. Jenkins was really nice and took the time to explain everything that needed to be done for my upcoming colonoscopy. Additionally, his staff Deborah and Kayla were sweethearts and treated me with the utmost respect and also took the time to speak with me to be certain I understood everything I needed to do. Very nice place and super friendly staff!!
