When was the last time you felt your Doctor was interested in you as a person and not the ailment you had at the time? Or when was the last time you felt your Doctor wanted to make a difference in the community and not a difference in his bank account?

Well, here is one. Dr. Wilbert Jenkins. Dr. Jenkins operates Jenkins Family Medical Practice out of the St. Pious Center at 705 East Anderson St. He opened the clinic in September of 2003 to assist those residents in the area. A former physician with the Air Force during Desert Storm, he brings a strong belief in a “people” oriented practice and reaching out to those in his community. Dr. Jenkins participates in community fairs, and other neighborhood meetings offering free health screenings and information.

While his office in St. Pious is small by the usual hospital standards, Dr. Jenkins wanted to be in the middle of his community, to be more accessible to those people who may not have transportation or who may not seek medical attention because of the difficulty involved when they do not have a family doctor.

Demonstrating his desire and drive, Dr. Jenkins outfitted the clinic, hired a nurse and a secretary using his own funds. He asked Capitol City Bank to assist him with the purchase of equipment in the office. Patrice Grant of Capitol City Bank asked Small Business Assistance Corporation if the SBAC could provide a guaranty for a loan Capitol City would make to Dr. Jenkins. The loan committee approved the request and Dr. Jenkins was able to continue working in the community that needs him.
