Dr. Jenkins explained the procedure clearly and made me feel comfortable. Dr. Jenkins told me I should be back to 100% in about a year, it took 11 months. I feel better now than I did 5 years ago. I am very fortunate to have Dr. Jenkins work his magic on me.
Iâve recently completed my six months-post surgery check-up with Dr. Jenkins and cannot over estimate how satisfied I am with the services that I received. My symptoms presented one morning when I woke up with essentially no feeling in the majority of the left side of my body below the neck. After receiving an initial diagnosis in the ER, I was able to meet with Dr. Jenkins and his incredibly talented nurse practitioner, Sarah Nichol, within two days. Dr. Jenkins (in conjunction with Dr. Andrew Hecht, an orthopedic surgeon also at Mount Sinai) conducted a cervical laminoplasty to relieve tension on my spinal canal. By 11pm the night of the surgery Dr. Jenkins had me walking on the neurosurgery recovery floor. I have since visited his office three times and have had very positive experiences on each occasion. His bedside manner is excellent, and he has taken an interest in ensuring that I meet my personal recovery goals. I am proud to say that I am back to working out at the gym, skiing, and fully plan on returning to marathon training this Spring.
After three spinal surgeries with Dr Jenkins (and crew), over the past 8 to 9 years, I'm self-evidently a repeat customer (I've always been God's gift to the medical establishment) as my genes haven't been too kind to me.January 31, 2016 I do trust Dr Jenkins; for one thing, he's never promised more than he can deliver. I also appreciate his generosity with his advice (I still see him for follow-ups), his time, his efforts, and his recommendations re other physicians & their specialties. And I heartily congratulate him on the quality of his staff. (As a supervisor myself, I only wish I had been so lucky with staff.) Five stars indeed, though I think he really deserves the whole constellation. Other physicians I see long-ago insisted I go to him for the consult and surgery.
