Dr. John Jenkins
Professionalism Awards Nomination
I would like to nominate Dr John Jenkins who is a Family Dr in Lunenburg and a preceptor for Dalhousie Medicine Care of the Elderly and Family Medicine Rotations.
He exhibits professionalism through his ability to establish excellent rapport with patients and nursing staff in his care of patients in clinic and as inpatients. He addresses every patient concern or symptom, and never leaves them feeling unheard. I have never seen him brush off a single concern by staff or a patient no matter how small. He also loves teaching and uses every opportunity, and taught me how to address practice differences between established physicians through open conversation effectively.
