Dr Jensen is probably the best thing that has hit Fairbanks!! We've only had orthopedic doctors in town, whom most of didn't even mess with the back. We would either have to go to Seattle or Anchorage to get our backs looked at. I've had a back issue for 10 years and nobody locally could take care of it. Now with Dr Jensen here i'm hoping to get treatment. Many of my friends have already had spinal surgery with him and have been in the best shape of their lives because of him!!! The office staff is GREAT!! All the way from start to finish I had a great experience at the office. He gets 5 stars in my book!!!!
