Not a good surgeon just a really nice guy. 12/20/2007

Take my word for it. I had surgery by Dr. Jenkins in January 2005 and was hurting even worse after the surgery. I thought I was going crazy or becoming a pussyfoot cry baby. All I know is that I was given as much medicine as I wanted. Not in quantity but quality and high milligrams of the best. After almost two years waiting for surgery or something to help me I was dependant on the narcotics. My surgery did not fuse and Dr. Jenkins told me I had arthritis like my mother and that is the reason for my continued pain. I went to another doctor for a second opinion and was x-rayed to see why I was still hurting so bad after a year past my surgery with Dr. Jenkins. Well the new doctor told me that I needed surgery ASAP to take out the equipment that was put there by Dr. Jenkins. He also told me the reason my back never fused was because the equipment was not properly attached to my spine. I had another blood test and was told I had know arthritis and that they don't know why I was told I did. I am glad to say today I am walking just like I did before my injury and I give all of the credit to Dr. Remindino at Mercy Hospital. He is the Chief Nuero Surgeon and he gave me my life back and I am now able to provide like a man should for my four kids and stay at home wife. That is the way I want it and am glad I can have it. I was 26 years old when I started seeing Dr. Jenkins and by the time my second surgery was done and I was fused I was 30 years old. Good Luck, to anyone who is going through this hell. Pray to the Lord Jesus Christ and everything you need will be provided. God Bless! more

An Answer to My Prayers... 8/7/2006

I know I have written a review about this business before, but cannot find the previous review to update. When I first visited, I was upset about the long wait time, even with a scheduled appointment. I have, however, come to learn that waiting to see Dr. Jenkens is well worth a little extra time! I have now been seeing Dr. Harvey Jenkens, at Aria Orthopedics, for about three months. There has been more progress made during these three months than there was for over six years of dealing with disabling back problems. I had an unsuccsessful operation in January of this year, preformed by a neurosurgeon in Midwest City, one of only two who accept my insurance. Three days after they inserted rods and screws in my lower back, as they wheeled me out of the hospital, the wheelchair collapsed, with my back landing right on the back of it. I was still on a lot of medication, but I remember screaming in pain. My children were right there to see it, which made it that much worse. The hospital employees stuck me in the van and sent me home. I tried to follow up with the surgeon, who refused to do an MRI to see if any further damage was done. After finding out that I had complained about the wheelchair incident, I could not even get an appointment to see him. I was, simply, left to deal with it. Finally, my primary care physician, after learning of the situation and how the hospital and surgeon were treating me in the aftermath, referred me to Dr. Jenkens, and orthopedic specialist. I was not hopeful, but decided that almost anyone would be better than what I had been dealing with. On my first visit to Dr. Jenkens, he asked how everything was going, and I explained my situation. He, immediately, scheduled an MRI for the following week. On my next visit, he was very empathetic in explaining to me that the results showed more problems. I was very grateful for how kind he was, and his assurance that he would help me through the situation. Dr. Jenkens is still working with me. He is trying to find a good laser surgeon to remove scar tissue that has built up from the first surgery. He knows that I will not return to my previous surgeon, but is understanding, and more than happy to work with me in finding someone else. He prescribes medication, not only to take care of the obvious pain, but also trying to reduce swelling and even help reduce the nerve pain. The things that please me most about Dr. Jenkens are that he is very educated, and will take the time to sit and explain things to me. He lets me know what options are available, and cares about my questions and fears. He gets things done. For years, doctors didn't want to believe that my problems were as bad as they were, mainly because I was so young. Dr. Jenkens gets the tests done immediately, and takes my concerns seriously. I am just so thankful, after all the years of growing pain and growing anger towards doctors, that I was able to find Dr. Jenkens and am now able to believe that there are doctors out there who truly do care about their patients. I have talked to many people since all of this began, and have met other patients of Dr. Jenkens. Every one of them speaks highly of him, both as a doctor and as a person. Dr. Jenkens deals with many injuries and issues, not just back problems. If you are experiencing growing frustration with a medical issue, I would recommend you give him a call. It was well worth it for me! more
