San Diego, CA |
I wish there were negative stars to give her. She ruined my life. went to her two years a go with one headache, ended up with so many more pain and unbearable headaches due to her misdiagnosis, mistreatment and having her PA take two appointments and perform all kind of treatment and injections before she saw me again. Because of her incorrect and rush diagnosis, she gave me Botox and irritated(damaged)my nerves and I have been burning in pain for 8 months. New doctors are trying to help me.

The most awful office!!! Don't waste your time.

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.
