Eric J. Jenkie, D.O.
Board Certified Neurologist
Dr. Eric J. Jenkie earned his medical degree with honors from Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine (VCOM) in Blacksburg, VA. He then completed his residency at Advocate BroMenn Medical Center in Normal, IL in 2017, where he served as the chief resident. After residency, he also completed a one-year medical fellowship in clinical neurophysiology and epilepsy at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, MI. He is passionate about the field of Neurology and the medical advances within his specialty.
Dr. Jenkie believes that every patient is in charge of their own health. He strives to effectively explain treatment plans, such as medications or medical tests, in order to develop trust and partner with each patient in their own healthcare decisions and to make sure they are happy with their care.
Dr. Jenkie graduated cum laude from the University of North Alabama and decided to return to the Shoals with his family after completing his medical training because they enjoyed the area so much and had a desire to serve this community. Outside of his practice, Dr. Jenkie enjoys meeting new people, traveling with his family, and playing music. He also takes time to hike regularly for exercise.
