This was my second appointment. I never got to see the doctor on the first appointment. I was 15 minutes late. It was a rainy day and traffic everywhere was backed up. I come from quite a distance to the city. On my rescheduled visit, I actually met the doctor and really, really liked her thoroughness and her manor. She was quite knowledgeable about my health history. I have a follow-up appointment in three months.

I think the KIOSK in the offices is a nice addition to check in. The office and staff are always professional and courteous, which directly reflects the doctor and nurse as a team.

Dr jernigan was very interested & attentive to my cancer related issues and abnormal lung findings on ct scan she repeated ct to monitor the issue closely given cancer history. She showed me the problem area on the ct scan images and gave recommendations. SHe even sent out of her way to contact other professionals during exam to ensure referrals where made as well as my current chemo drug did not interfere with the flu shot she administered which was a concern to me. She is very attentative to patient concerns before making recommendations. Very pleased with her personal interests in her patients health and caring traits to get patient back to good health. Wouldn't leave trade her for another as other providers have large shoes to fill when it comes to patient care and never dismissing a patients concern.

I am a physician so I'm fussy about my doctor. I fired two doctors before i found Dr. Jernigan. She has an excellent fund of knowledge and she listens to her patients.
