Alma Faye Jenkins, M.D., of Goldsboro has opened a practice in Suite 1610 of the Johnston Medical Mall in Smithfield. She began seeing patients locally in January. A native of Selma, Dr. Jenkins has been practicing for more than 20 years. She has worked in practices in Atlanta and Mount Olive, and, most recently, in temporary assignments at hospitals in Virginia, Louisiana and Nebraska.
Jenkins earned her medical degree in 1979 from Meharry Medical College in Nashville, Tenn. and her B.S. degree from Elizabeth City State University, where she graduated summa cum laude. She is a 1971 graduate of Smithfield-Selma High School.
Jenkins completed an internship and residency in internal medicine at Emory University Hospital Systems in Atlanta and a fellowship in gastroenterology at Bowman-Gray Medical Center. She is board certified in gastroenterology.
Jenkins also hosts a show called “Health Tips,” which is televised weekly.
“Giving patients information about preventive care can have an impact on our economy as well as our health,” Jenkins adds. “We’re so accustomed to treating diseases when they’re here; we’d be far better off preventing them.”
Dr. Jenkins is currently accepting patients. Give her a call at 919-938-7182 for more information, or visit her Johnston Health web profile.
