Dr. Jernigan has my complete trust and respect as my family physician. Professionally, Dr. Jernigan reviews current medical studies and shares insights from them as they relate to my health care. These conversations help me to understand why he recommends 150 minutes of cardio activity weekly, modifying my diet to lose weight and reduce my chances of suffering a stroke or heart attack. This recent visit really made me want to follow his recommendations. I think the graph he showed me made the percentage of risk I fall into for heart attack or stroke more meaningful. Making these lifestyle changes now will help me enjoy life more and increase the likelihood I will add years to my life! The Baylor Scott & White Team at Fish Pond Clinic in Waco is made up of friendly, caring professionals who are good with people and good at their jobs!

Dr. Jernigan is like unto no doctor we have ever used. No matter what our problems, he always has the solution. He knows the research behind the solution and is always sensitive to our limited income. He orders exactly the type of medical tests that are necessary and then uses the data to direct our healthcare. Dr. Jernigan is the epitome of personalized healthcare. The only problem is that he cannot be cloned! We are thankful each day that he is our PCP.
