In 5 years I Only saw Jackson in the exam room 3 times. I once put my foot down with him at a procedure and asked if I could see HIM at the next and not the nurse... he stated “If I AM NOT BUSY”. At Commonwealth Pain & Spine expect to see overworked ARPNs who dash around filling scripts. It is simply mass chaos. 90% of the time the nurse is tapping on a computer and when done with “the quiz” hits a button and sends refills already approved and rubber stamped to the pharmacy.

Dr. Jackson has seen me at every visit. He has helped me with my meds to the point I know that I am going to live longer. Other doctor had me on too many meds for the job. I feel better now. His staff is great.

He is worthless. Does not care. Arrogant. He only cared to see me once in 2.5 years. Pain never relieved. Whole practice very suspicious.

Went to Commonweath Pain & Spine for year and half. Never once saw Dr. Jackson. Staff and nurses were very rude and uncaring and treated all patients like they were drug addicts. Maybe some were, but I was not, and didn't appreciate being treated like trash. Asked to see Dr. Jackson many times, but was always told he was too busy. I finally found another clinic, where the doctor actually sees me. I wouldn't wish that place or Dr Jackson on my worst enemy.
