Jessica is AMAZING! I have had several doctors in my life but none like Jessica. Jessica always greets everyone in the room with a smile and a firm handshake. She is such a great listener, always hears my concerns and addresses them. She is thorough with her check ups and testing. She never makes me feel rushed, and explains everything in a way I can understand it. She goes above and beyond for her patients. What stood out to me recently was her messaging me through K-Chart for me to come in and check up on an issue I had been having. We resolved it right there in the office. It doesn't get better than Jessica!
