What Our Community Has to Say

We are patients of Dr. Jenski and Jodi Caddell NP. We absolutely love the personalized care provided on both the primary care side and the functional medicine side. Dr. Jenski is brilliant and is constantly thinking about the very best way to care for his patients. I only wish everyone had a physician like Dr. Jenski. We are so happy to have found RIFM in 2019 and continue to be pleased with the care we receive. The office staff, the nurse (shout out to Sydney!), the phlebotomist Angela, everyone... thank you!

I have felt quite cared for in this practice and the office staff all are very attentive and caring. The level of care is high and holistic. Having the NP, Jodi there as part of the team is a great addition and very appreciated.

My wife and I have been patients of Dr. Hartman since 2018. He is, by far, one of the most thorough and thoughtful physicians I have ever experienced. His willingness to dig down to identify and treat the causes of our issues is greatly appreciated. He routinely thinks out of the box, and explores alternative therapies to treat what ails us. What we also appreciate is his willingness to take time with us and not rush through our appointments. Our health has improved significantly since we have joined his practice. I have met with Dr. Jodi his nurse practitioner, several times. She is friendly and thorough. All of his staff make us feel welcome every time we are there. It is wonderful to have a physician and staff that we trust completely!

Excellent care. RIFM strives to treat the cause rather than address the symptoms.

Dr. Hartman has helped me and my family for several years. He is a great integrative and functional medicine doctor, and has a wealth of knowledge on how to address chronic health conditions. I highly recommend Dr. Hartman.
