About the Practice
Christopher L. Jenkins, M.D. operates a private practice in Mobile, Alabama opened in 2000. As telemedicine is rapidly becoming the future standard of care, we now have a HIPAA compliant platform where you can see the doctor from the comfort of your own home - or wherever you happen to be.
How can I book my appointment?
All current and new patients must call the office to book an appointment at 251-665-5360. Our goal is to see all new patients within 48 hours as we understand the urgency of receiving help when you need it. Though there are times that we cannot accommodate due to scheduling but we will always do our best to fit you or your loved one in.
Please note that effective September 17, 2018 we are no longer accepting Blue Cross / Blue Shield (currently only accepting Beacon Health/Value Options, Tricare and CHAMPVA coverage); All first-time appointments require payment up front as will follow-up appointments for new and existing patients not covered by the aforementioned insurance carriers. We apologize to our current patients who will be affected by this change and as such, Dr. Jenkins will work out a set but finite schedule to continue your medication refills and prescriptions while you find another physician.
