The waiting room and examination room waits were relatively brief after completing an extensive medical history form. The initial health care professional was friendly, interested, and efficient. My time with Dr. Jenkins was not rushed and he answered my questions clearly and without being either overly technical or condescending. He clearly expressed interest in my opinions and was flexible but focused on what he thought were the benefits and risks associated with the procedure. I would certainly recommend Dr. Jenkins and the associated team.
