He's quick. You must have your questions prepared to ask when you see him. His office did not send me the results of my MRI. I went for a second visit because I was still having pain. I was only giventhe MRI report after the visit was over, so I didn't have an opportunity to ask all the questions that arose after reading it.

I had needed Dr. Jensen's help on 3 different occasions back in the 80's and 90's for minor clean up by scope. It's been 25 years, but I still find him to be top notch and he has a very goodteam around him. We'll see what the MRI diagnosis brings later this afternoon.

I have a very busy work schedule and my time spent at my desk is demanding and valuable. I scheduled an early appointment assuming that it would be on time. I wasted over any hour sitting idle in the waiting room.

I booked an appointment through zoc doc where the md indicated he took my insurance. When i arrived at the office I was made to pay an out of network fee claiming they don't take my insurance. Also they wanted me to see PA instead of the doctor.

Short and straight to the point. He performed a few flexibility exercises on my knee and determined I needed an MRI. The visit took less time than filling out the new patient paperwork.
