This provider does an excellent job of taking care of my health issues.

March 10, 2016

First time visiting Dr. Jernigan. I was impressed with the ease of making an appointment. My visit with Dr. Jernigan was both professional and caring. I felt as if Dr. Jernigan saw me as an individual and took time to see the person behind the patient. I felt as if I had been going to her for years. The medical profession needs more Doctors like her who take time to see the whole person. Thank you Dr. Jernigan.
