She is excellent! I love that she listens to us parents and also doesn't mind staying in touch with our Apert specialist!

OU Physicians Patient Oct 23, 2019

Our original appointments had to be rescheduled by the office. The earliest we could get in was over 4 weeks. I spoke with the nurse who agreed we needed to see the doctor before then. I agreed to a time & then realized it was during our vacation. When I called to change it, I was again offered an appointment over a month out. I tried to explain that the nurse/doctor wanted him seen before then. I was not given any other options. I had to email a nurse who then arranged for my son to see the PA. It is extremely frustrating to make appointments. We love the doctors & staff once we are there but scheduling an appointment is VERY difficult.

OU Physicians Patient Jan 23, 2019

If all healthcare care providers cared and took care of their patients the way Janis does, going to the doctor would be a pleasurable experience every time. She is so kind, caring, and wants what is best for the patient. She truly cares and is willing to do anything she can to try and improve the patients health. We're so thankful that God has placed her in the spot that she is in and she is the one taking care of our son! She's the best!!

Janis Lynn has helped my daughter gain control over her asthma symptoms. My daughter is ten and has a good understanding of what she has to do to control her breathing.

OU Physicians Patient Aug 1, 2017

always happy with whole visit

OU Physicians Patient Apr 18, 2017

Janislynn is fantastic. I don't think I've ever met such a caring and thorough provider. She takes care of my son's health problems while also making him feel comfortable. She treats the person as a whole rather than treating a specific problem only. I can't say enough good things about her. My son's treatment is finished so we're going back to his primary care doctor, and I'm actually a bit sad that we won't be seeing Janislynn anymore! It's hard to find such a wonderful provider who truly cares about her patients.

OU Physicians Patient Apr 4, 2017

She is amazing and me, my son and my family are VERY happy and pleased with her.

OU Physicians Patient Mar 14, 2017

This was our second visit with Janislynn, and I couldn't be more impressed. She takes time to understand the patient's issues and concerns. She has a great bedside manner and treats the whole person rather than focusing on one isolated problem because she understands that the entire health story is needed to treat someone. She's everything that I look for in a provider.

OU Physicians Patient Dec 16, 2016

I wish all his health care providers were as amazing and kind and caring as her!!!!

OU Physicians Patient Nov 21, 2016

Janislyn Dorris was wonderful with my child. She was caring, understanding, and willing to spend plenty of time with us to make sure she had all of the information she needed before deciding on a treatment plan. What stood out the most to me were her efforts to treat my son as a whole person. Rather than focusing solely on one potential diagnosis or set of symptoms like many doctors do, she took the time to talk about all of his physical symptoms and the emotional/mental side of it too. I was very impressed and would highly recommend her to anyone.

OU Physicians Patient Nov 14, 2016

she is a wonderful doctor. she always listens and she makes sure to tell my son about the meds he is taking as well me.

OU Physicians Patient Aug 16, 2016

Janislynn is an excellent asthma care provider. She talks to my daughter in language she can understand about her asthma. She encourages my daughter to be responsible for her asthma and learn more about her own health. She is also very kind and loving, always asking about other aspects of my daughter's life that make her feel special. We enjoy talking with her about school, camping and horses, too. We always enjoy our asthma follow-up visits with Miss Janislynn.

OU Physicians Patient Jul 29, 2016

Janislynn is a fantastic asthma specialist. She is so good with kids. My daughter was anxious about her visit, but Janislynn was so kind. She just started asking my daughter all about her summer and within a few minutes, my daughter opened up and smiled. We always have a great experience in this clinic.
