“I consider myself to be a very lucky person. For over 15 years I have been treated by Jerry Tennant, Nurse Practitioner, at my Internal Medicine doctor’s office. Her medical expertise and genuine care for my health and well being has served me well over the years. Last April I was overcome with exhaustion and angst to the point that rendered me incapable of functioning. I made an appointment with Jerry and as she was aware of my stressful job and raising a family, she strongly suspected that I was suffering from Adrenal Exhaustion. The diagnosis was later confirmed by saliva testing and blood work. This happened at the time she was completing her boards to become a Functional Doctor, and with this additional layer of education and knowledge, she was uniquely qualified to help me overcome one of the most difficult times in my life. Jerry created a regimen specifically to address the symptoms of Adrenal Exhaustion while taking into consideration my other medical problems. She has helped me to regain my energy and to make lifestyle changes to address stress which has improved my overall health. I am forever grateful to her.”

“Jerry has been my primary medical practitioner for over 20 years. She is different than most medical professionals in that she looks at the whole person, not just the problem brought to you in the door. Her keen eye integrates your physical and mental health so that you feel fully supported as you look to achieve certain goals, attack health challenges, or simply manage stress and live a healthier lifestyle. She truly cares about her patients and listens to their concerns so that she can come up with tangible action plans you can execute. I don’t know what I would do without Jerry in my universe. I would recommend her to anyone looking to elevate their heath and wellbeing in a meaningful and comprehensive way.”

“My experience working with Jerry Tennant has been absolutely wonderful. I worked with Jerry virtually over the past pandemic year; my first appointment with her was on May 20, 2020 and my last was exactly one year to the day on May 19, 2021. Jerry is smart and wise (those are not the same), perceptive, warm, and caring, and she draws on her many years of medical experience. She’s a delight to work with. She is constantly studying, learning, and updating her education and knowledge, something which I greatly appreciate and admire. She responded quickly to me every time I needed to reach her, and always with so much attention to details. I recommending Jerry to a friend, I said, “This is the best medical experience I’ve ever had.” I had terrific health results — which I’m thrilled about — and it was a joy to work with Jerry”
“I’ve been seeing Jerry Tennant as my primary healthcare provider for over ten years and I hope she never retires! She is the most thorough, curious, determined and compassionate healer I’ve encountered. While she of course treats any symptoms I might have, she always works to figure out the underlying cause so we can address it holistically together. She is constantly attending new courses and reviewing the literature to expand her already considerable expertise to help her patients. And – amazingly — whenever Jerry sits down with me, it feels like she has all the time in the world to listen, explain and find the best way forward. She’s a gem”
“I’ve been seeing Jerry for more than 20 years now. She is genuine, kind , compassionate & caring. She always gives you her undivided attention during every visit. I know she has a lot of patients…but manages to make you feel like you’re the only one. She’s knowledgeable and passionate about her work, and I know she loves what she does and it shows.”
