Compassionate and exceedingly capable

Dr Jarnigan accurately diagnosed my sister who had stage 4 cancer and as she said, "he looked her in the eye and told her the truth." He is compassionate and based on his diagnosis we were able to get the best treatment. There isn't another Dr. in the world with this specialty, I would recommend other than Dr Jarnigan.

A Surgeon who knows when surgery is needed

I met Dr. Jarnagin after my diagnosis of stage IV colon cancer with a metastasis to the Liver and Lungs. His first Idea was to see the reaction to the chemo, when I had miraculous shrinkage he decided to watch a .6 cm lesion that was left in my liver. He attended my colon resection and did an internal ultrasound he told me all looks good. I will continue to have my scans and I know if I ever need him I have a wonderful qualified Dr. to do my surgery.
