The Columbus County Chamber of Commerce welcomed Dr. A. Nicole Jenkins Wednesday morning in a ribbon cutting ceremony for the opening of her new practice, Doctor of Physical Therapy.
The office is located at 612 Jefferson Street in Whiteville. Dr. Jenkins is a Columbus County native who come back to her community to practice physical therapy. She graduated from East Carolina University with a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Physiology, and with a doctorate degree in Physical Therapy. She has been practicing physical therapy for eight years, and much of that time has been spent traveling and working in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virgina.  

Several members of Dr. Jenkins’ friends and family were present for the event, and a surprise face in the crowd was in attendance for the good doctor. A favorite teacher, Ms. Enzor, showed up for her former student to give her the same support displayed so many years ago. Several city officials expressed gratitude for Dr. Jenkins’ choice to return to her home county, including Whiteville City Mayor Terry Mann. 

“This is a win-win situation for us. We are getting a local person to come back to our community,” Mann said. He also noted that Dr. Jenkins choosing to open her practice here helps health-related services in town by keeping the citizens in the area for treatment. 

Pamela Young Jacobs, small business center director at Southeastern Community College, said, “We are so excited to have you here. You will be a valuable resource and mentor to our students.”  

Dr. Jenkins offers a wide variety of services other than physical therapy. She offers female and male healthcare including incontinence, and erectile disfunction treatment, and gives physical exams for disability and return-to-work related injuries. She has a massage therapy wellness program for $40 a month for thirty-minute massages.
