Ratings for Dr. John Jenkins
Don't go near him if you have been bitten by a tick. He will tell you to go home and wait for symptoms. When you get symptoms (such as flu-like systemic misery, swollen, aching joints, drenching sweats, fever and chills, memory loss, loss of balance, falling down etc etc etc) he will tell you that you have normal signs of aging and send you home. This guy causes late stage Lyme disease, which is rampant in Lunenburg.
Dr. Jenkins is a sweetheart. Competent and genial. It's a delight to meet him at emergency. We had that experience twice and both times he narrowed down what might be the problem, requested the required tests, identified the problem, and referred us to the care we needed. He is an excellent physician.
Dr. Jenkins recently changed his method of practising medicine and left his secretary of 18 years, Judy, go. Since Judy has left his practice has gone downhill.The new staff have no idea how to run a medical office and they don't care to learn.They will never give you an appoinment to see Dr.Jenkins in a timely fashion.Dr. Jenkins may as well have stopped practising medicine when he left Judy go. Sad but true!!!
Not impressed with this Doctor at all,he was not my Doc(thank god) but was my sister's. She passed away from colorectal cancer,early detection could have saved her life, but she was blown off for too long that by the time it was discovered, it had already spread(she had it for a year before he would send her for tests).Famous words: "I'm sure it's nothing", "you're too youmg"my personal favorite"You look so good, you can't be sick" Give me a break!!!
My husband and I were had Dr. Muraletheran as our family doctor.She recently left for Ontario. We thought she was excellent and she left us in the care of Dr. Jenkins. I am so thankful, because he is the best, a very knowledgeable and good doctor as well as caring individual. People like him are few and far between.
