“It really feels good when you help to improve someone’s health”
Dr. Jorgensen sees all ages and provides a variety of care and treatments in the tradition of a family physician.
Language(s) - English
Dr. Jorgensen says that while he certainly enjoys the scientific, analytical aspects of medicine, it is the personal side for which he gets his greatest satisfaction. “I love getting to know my patients and their families, to help guide them to good health and, when necessary, help alleviate their pain and suffering, whether physical or emotional.”
He says he tries to build rapport with patients. “If they are comfortable with me then they feel they can ask me that one more question and perhaps dive into more complicated problems that may surround their overall health.”
Dr. Jorgensen and his wife have two children, and they enjoy “anything that gets them outside,” such as camping, hiking, biking and visiting national parks
