It was awesome! I was so happy to meet Dr. Jackson and his amazing staff. Dr. Jackson has a great bed side manner and I recommend him to anyone I meet that is having back issues like I was. He has turned my entire life around. Thank you Dr. Jackson!

On Nov. 22, 2010, Dr. Jackson III literally, with the helping hand of God, saved my husband's life after a near miss with death following a sudden & substantial AVM hemorrhage. Am happy to report nearly 8 years later, that hubby of mine is walking, talking, working-out at the gym, enjoying his kids and ten beautiful grandchildren ranging in age from 17 to 3 mo. What we loved most about Dr. Jackson III was that he was as much "faith-minded" as we were. Without a doubt, it made all the difference!

I am 12 hours out of a 3 vertebrae laminectomy, sitting at my computer, almost pain free, it's maybe a 2. I thought the PA was crazy when she told me they would send me home on Tylenol. She was right! I really only need Tylenol but they did change and send me home with Ultram. Took one pill just to "stay ahead of the pain" but it wasn't needed. Dr Jackson is a stellar surgeon, relates well to his patients & their families & best of all to me, before my surgery he asked if he could pray with me!

Just wanted to update a former review of Dr. Jackson's incompetent operating skills. My current pain is 9.5 and no injections, physical therapy, etc. have reduced that pain. I am currently pursuing another operation as I can't stand the pain. The MRI shows that several of the screws used by Jackson were 1/4_1/2 inches too long and are close to penetrating blood vessels and nerves. Never consider jackson for any surgery if you value your life.

Very disappointed as a patient. I was misdiagnosed as needing back surgery and after about a half a dozen visits I got a second opinion and was referred to you of M hospital and diagnosed with ALS. In addition their Billing System is a mess. I was first overcharged, then refunded, and now eight months later in October am still receiving bills for co-pays from February.

My husband had 3 discs removed. The second day in he was in such pain he called to get something to help. He had to call four times! His script ran out in 5 days, when he called to get something, the on call told him to go to emergency room! After- care from Dr. Jackson staff is nonexistent. There is no compassion!

My bad experience is with the poorly trained staff and the follow-up care. As part of the process to begin a regimen of Forteo for osteoporosis, I received an order for blood work for Forteo Labs. This order did not specify fasting or non-fasting. I had to call his staff and wait for a return call to find out. When I arrived at the lab for this blood work (at 7:15 am, fasting)I found out that the blood should be drawn between 8 and 10 am. Communication from the office could have saved me time.
