Dr. Jest is GREAT

Dr. Jest is a very good listener and he spends the time needed to do a good job. This actually saves time in the long run because I believe we are healthier because he takes the time to address my issues.

Most of the questions have little application. This was a very routine physical and nothing has changed from last year.

I've been seeing Dr. Jest for 25 years and have always found him to be a caring and very competent physician. I have full faith in him.

I was pleased with my visit with Dr. Jest. I just am not the type to recommend a doctor to someone else, as I try to use natural means and alternative health care first.

Dr Jest is my PC physician and I think he's super

Twenty-five years ago my father died and the care and interaction with his doctor and our family was horrible. After he passed I called Wheaton (probably another name back then) and wanted a new doctor for myself with an excellent "bedside" manner. My current one at the time was a cold, dry man. The nurse helpline at Wheaton recommend the Doctor I still have now. It was one of the best moves I ever made. I have never been disappointed with Dr. Jest. I am so very happy I changed doctors and hope he will be my doctor when my life ends because my family will be happy with the care and compassion he will show them, I am convinced of that.

This provider is excellent in his courtesy, explanations, and assistance in my care. I would not see anyone else for my care (other than necessary specialists). I have recommended him to everyone I know!

Dr. Jest is remarkable. He spent more than adequate time with me, getting to know me, and showed concern for the things I provided. I will continue to see this doctor for the future, and recommend him to any and all friends and family

I have always been extremely happy with Dr. Jest. He has always seemed competent, compassionate and responsible in his care for my mother.

I work in healthcare, and have heard numerous complaints about how their primary care physician rush through their appointment, and document on their computer, barely making eye contact. My appointment with Dr. Jest was the opposite- he was thorough, and took the time to review everything. I felt I had enough time to have my questions answered.

July 24, 2016
I understand my medical issues and I always ask and get answers to every questions I have everyone I've had contact with have been extremely friendly and professional.

I feel he reviews all my previous records and has a feel of previous health needs. ( I am a fairly new patient.) He is willing to explore for better results (mine mostly BP history).

I Ordered the usual blood tests a week before my routine exam so Dr Jest and I could review them before or during the exam. He or I did not have the test results in hand during our consultation . I then could not ask questions about results. He left to check results and gave me one reading he wanted retested. I had to ask for a copy of results after the exam was over. Then had to call to get them posted to MYCHart two weeks later. Results in hand should be required and routine blood tests scheduled to have results before the exam time. I left feeling I did not have a chance to review my test results properly.

appointments not long enough

I like my doctor! I switched to him 25 years ago when I saw my father's doctor NOT have any "bed side manner" when my father was dying. At that time, the personal care and concern from a doctor was going to play a big role in who I was going to select as my primary doctor. I have been totally happy with my doctor.
