Denise Jacks

About Me

Hello, I received my MD and PhD a few years ago but currently state licensed as an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse since 2010. So of my friends joke and call me Dr. Dr. Jacks. I am accused of being "thorough" and a patient advocate. Evidence based practice medicine with collaboration of resources can bring the best clinical outcome. I enjoy practicing Spanish with some of my patients where English is a second language.


I focus on the whole person which includes health promotion and prevention of chronic diseases such as COPD, Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, Obesity, Arthritis, Osteoporosis, Anxiety, Depression and more.
