This is the absolute WORST experience I have ever had at a doctor's office. I initially went to Dr. Jackson because my blood pressure was extremely high and my primary care physician told me to make an appointment with a cardiologist ASAP. I arrived at the appointment a few minutes late. I sat in her outdated office for 1 hour 30 minutes with a terrible headache in need of medical attention before her incompetent staff finally told me that she would not see me. My primary care doctor called me
