    Patient Reviews
    Dr. Jennings went above and beyond to make sure Rob's surgery got done promptly, and due to his complications has made sure that his aftercare has gone well. Thank you so much for everything.

    Dr. Jennings was very confident when he spoke to me about my injury and procedure. He made me feel very comfortable. If I need to go back to him in the future, he is great at what he does. I would recommend anyone to go to him.
