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.

I had one of the best health care experiences I can remember with Dr. Jernigan.

Dr. Jernigan is always concerned with any changes in my total health. She keeps all of my other providers up to date with her findings and makes recommendations to them. She is a true patient advocate and an excellent physician.
