Anchorage, AK |
I highly recommend Dr. Jennifer Jansma as a foot and ankle doctor based on my personal experience. In June 2016 I experienced a fibula fracture. She was thorough in her examination, while also being sensitive to my questions and concerns. She was personable and friendly while also being an extremely knowledgeable and competent medical professional. I was even able to reach her after-hours with a pressing question. I recommend her without hesitation. She cares about her patients as people.

Dr. Jansma performed a mechanical arthrodesis (among other things) on my foot on Friday of last week. She called mid-morning on Saturday to check on me...pain level, questions, etc. Want a gentle soul? She is your lady. Soft-spoken, confident and SKILLED. I was totally off of pain meds within a matter of days. She took ample time to explain EVERYTHING to me and my family (before and after surgery). Rheumatoid arthritis here, so I KNOW I have more issues ahead. Can't recommend her enough...
