Phone staff are rude and unhelpful. Takes forever to get through and when you do, they can never get a message to the dr (even in an urgent situation) Dr Jackson is great (when you finally do get to see her) but not attentive when you really need her. I was in the ER yesterday and they want me to follow up with my neurologist today (but she won't get back to me) Time to find a neurologist that cares.

She is the best! She is so friendly, compassionate, knowledgable, & really takes the time to listen. She doesn't rush through the appointment. I never leave reviews for anything but when I saw the comments about her being a cold person, I just had to leave my thoughts. She as helped me so much with my different health issues as well as identify new problems & now it's all under control & I am to the point where I only need to see her twice a year rather than multiple times. She is fantastic!
Unprofessional and disorganized staff. Long wait. Receptionist lost my multi-page paperwork just seconds after my husband gave it to her. They insisted I fill it out again, and we refused (they found it later but still blamed my husband for the loss). Dr Jackson then refused to see or treat me -- ever -- and maligned my husband by calling his actions abusive because he refused to redo the paperwork and insisted they find what they had lost.

Impersonal, non-communicative, prescribes meds without explaining side effects. Will never recommend to anyone. Cost me a fortune in medical follow up for side effects. Horrible service at Scripps Clinic. Constant phone problems. Biggest mistake ever going there.

Doctor is cold, impersonal and does not listen to patient. Only asks the questions she wants and orders tests without telling you why. She does not go over all side effects of medication with patient before prescribing. Difficult to get an appointment.
