"My first impression of Dr. Jenkins was that he was very kind of understanding of what the struggles have been for obese folks. His staff is excellent and every time I call they know me by name and are extremely friendly. I am impressed by the fact that Dr. Jenkins runs a monthly support group. I really do think he genuinely cares about the people he serves. My only concern is that Dr. Jenkins office is not simply for bariatric patients and his office staff do not appear to always understand the needs of the bariatric patient. I was sent home from surgery and told by Dr. Jenkins to schedule a follow-up appointment in one week. I called immediately upon hospital discharge and was told they couldn't get me in for three weeks. This really made me worried because I went home on a liquid diet and couldn't progress without seeing him. I called back twice more to beg for another appointment. I finally reached the bariatric appointment coordinator and she fixed me up."
