I have been seeing Dr. Jarek for 3 years now for RA and he has been amazing. He has listened to me and helped me to understand what steps I need to take in my care. He is very experienced and can help you understand issues you are dealing with.
Excellent bedside manner. You can tell he really cares. He will do his best to help you but not let you self diagnose.....seen him many times over the years....always consistent in care and compassion. My health is absolutely better under his care
Horrible experience both times I have seen Dr.Jarek! He has absolutely no bedside manners. He does not take the time to listen to you. He makes assumptions without even giving you a chance to tell your symptoms. From reading other reviews I’m not the only one that feels this way. He is very rude and inconsiderate! Freeman should be ashamed to have him as a Physician! I will not be going to back to him and I will not suggest anyone go to Dr.Jarek if you are wanting to be heard!
He has no bedside manners. He is not personal. He does not take the time to listen to you. Every time I’ve been here it has taken over an hour after my apt time for him to see me.
I cannot say enough good things about Dr Jarek and his entire staff. I was so sick for over a year, had seen numerous doctors with no positive results with the exception of Dr Stephen Holmes who referred me to Dr Jarek. By the time I got to Dr Jarek my pain level had skyrocketed to a near 10. My ability to function was at 1 out of 10. I was inflamed, in pain 24/7, and could not sleep. It was miserable laying down, sitting up, and walking was nearly impossible. My visits with the Dr have been near miraculous.. I'm being earnest. The doctor has taken time with me at each visit, and thoroughly explained any and all procedures and treatments. He listens and I believe he gets it. Dr Jarek's entire staff are the best I have encountered (with a special shout out to nurse Billie...she is amazing). I don't feel angst at my visits. I genuinely feel like I'm around family who care. Yes, I have RA...but I have my life back and am fully functioning thanks to doctor & staff.
Wasn’t impressed. Not much in way of bed side manners. He basically said nothing was wrong with me but that I just had Roseacea. His nurse called me back to say labs looked great no issues. So I then asked how long I would need to be on the medication he put me on and she said for life because I have an auto immune disease. Ok wait he said he suspects nothing’s wrong and you are saying nothing showing in labs but to take hydrochlorquine for the rest of my life? Wasn’t impressed. All nursing staff was very kind even tho they were not on the same lines as dr.
Where to start! If you want to feel like a child and be repremanded for trying to find answers, he's the Dr.for you. He belittles you and makes you feel like your insignificant.
My hematologist said my white count has been high since 2012 due to inflammation caused by psoriatic arthritis and to get my white count into normal range I need to control the inflammation so I call Dr. Jarek to schedule an appointment and I'm told to call back when I'm experiencing pain redness and swelling. Not to mention he is very short and rude during initial appointment.
Dr Jarek is very thorough, kind and considerate. He’s amazing at his job and I’ve been with him 14 years and continue to! Amazing nurses
Heard he was one of the best, first appointment was awesome, but very bad after that never listen. Actually not sure he wants you as a patient well I don’t need him as a Doctor.
I couldn't be happier with Dr Jarek. He is attentive, he knows me and my condition well, and I trust his opinions and his care so much. He's helped me with my uncommon autoimmune disease more than any other doctor I've seen in Missouri. I would recommend him to anyone!
Just like the others didn't seem to care to actually help. Came up with conclusions that were false. Made me feel like i shouldnt be there. Acted like i didnt have a problem. Give me a break i have verified proof of my health condition. This man doesnt even know what arthritis is. Has no conscience. And im filing complaint with the board with others who exoerienced same issues. He must of partied in school and didnt really study. So rude. What a jerk. Shame on him for his horrible bedside manners. The jerk doesn't want to hear the truth. Zero stars needs to stop practicing. Phoney doctor. God sees all. Atleast i found out my first appt what a true piece of crap he was so i can find a good doctor. One that understands my condition.
Other doctors and Cox Rheumatology dept. were amazed that Dr. Jarek did not find the cause of my sudden severe pains. Dr. Jarek was unable to diagnose my condition after many tests, I had 19 of 20 symptoms of PMR, which was discovered with the help my doctor and Cox Rheumatology. After I started treatment I was back pain free in a matter of 6 hours after months of unbearable pain. During my appt. with the Dr. Jarek he actually made fun of condition, I reported him to Cox Hospital in Branson.
I've been seeing Dr Jarek for about 9 years, he's an excellent provider. I've never had a bad experience with him or his staff. Dr Jarek always takes time to listen to me.
I have a 10 year history of oral cancer and after seeing many drs with no one being able to figure out what is causing my mouth ulcers, a biopsy showed sjogrens disease, my ENT is very concerned that I will have a mouth full of cancer and I was referred to Dr Jarek for his opinion. I have seen many drs over the years but I must say he was the worst I have ever experienced. He was worse than rude, didn't care at all about my cancer concerns, only cared if I had rheumatoid arthritis and kept saying he didn't even know why I was sent to him. I have never felt so humiliated by a medical person of any title in my entire life. What a jerk. Would never want anyone I cared about to go to him and be so mistreated. Don't know how he can remain a dr, but CMH should send him packing.
This so called doctor wanted me to go off narcotic medications I have been on for over 10 years. I was willing to go off the meds, but he refused to help. I wanted help weaning off them. His answer was that he doesn't give narcotics, and I should just stop taking them. Any doctor knows you can't just quit taking them, you have to wean off them slowly. So I will continue to drive 1 1/2 hours to my old rheumatologist. I wouldn't recommend this doctor to any one.
Doesn't seem like a very pleasant person. Rude and does not listen to the patient very well. If you have a choice to see another doctor choose them instead of him if not you will be wasting your time seeing this doctor.
I've had RA for well over 30 years. I've has my share of RA Doctors and must say Dr Jarek is the best. I admire the fact he travels to small towns during the week. He helps many people by going to them. While I was in rehab due to catastrophic injury I developed Felty's syndrome and needed two more units of blood. There was a problem getting it to the facility I was in. They called Dr. Jarek and he told them what to give me. Two days later I no longer needed the transfusion. I'm moving and decided that driving 8 hours would be nothing to keep Dr Jarek. I know he's very busy but he's never treated me bad.
I am a 74 year old male who has had RA for 25 years. I had been seeing a RA doctor in Springfield but chose to see Dr Jarek as he was closer to my residence. Dr. Jarek was extremely rude. He was not interested in what I had to say about my past history and when I mentioned my records, he retorted, " I don't have time to look at your records." He was dismissive, condescending and unwilling to discuss with me very simple concerns that I had when he suggested I try a new treatment option. It was as if he already decided the best course of treatment for me and he apparently did not feel my input was necessary. I have never had a doctor treat me as rudely as Dr. Jarek. It seemed he had an agenda and that was all that he was interested in. Inf fact he left the room as I mentioned that maybe I should find a new doctor, he turned, smirked and said, " I am at Mercy and Freeman". Needless to say I am back in Springfield with my original doctor. I would not recommend Dr Jarek to anyone that I care about.
wanted to start infusion before trying other things. I got a second opinion and they said infusion was only used as a last resort. Not sure what Jarek was thinking other than money....
