I have an auto-immune desease and my Nephrology specialist recommended her from a list of doctors. She is a board-certified internist and rheumatologist. She has worked well with my other specialists.

21/05/09 1 3 2 1 I was billed by a doctor I never saw, and, when I complained, I received a belligerent letter from the billing office dismissing me as a patient. Dr. Jenkins never remembered anything about me, and my prescriptions were often misdosed. I went to her three times about a circular rash on my arm before she told me it was skin cancer. It took two visits for her to completely freeze it off, and I still am not sure it was skin cancer rather than a rash.
