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.

Dr, Je ernigan is an excellent physician and UPMC is lucky to have her! I've been her patient for a number of years and would never see anyone else for my pulmonary care. She is very caring and cautious. Treats me as a family member. Excellent physician!
