I believe in build­ing strong con­nec­tions and rela­tion­ships with my patients. By tak­ing time to lis­ten, I am bet­ter able to under­stand their con­cerns, and approach the treat­ment plan with their out­come goals in mind. I am a firm believ­er in empow­er­ing patients through shared deci­sion mak­ing and infor­ma­tive dia­logue. Encour­ag­ing their proac­tive atti­tudes and actions allows me to treat my patients to the best of my abilities.

"Dr. Jonkheer was very personable & engaging & professional & caring. She immediately ordered x-rays of my hand when I arrived in the exam room. Then reviewed them with me & explained treatment options. But she admitted honestly that her expertise was limited & quickly referred me to a more experienced colleague, then even made me a quick appointment. She even apologized that she couldn't do more to help me! I would highly recommend her & see her again!"
