Patient Comments (35)
in Louisville, KY |
I started suffering from psoriasis late in life and found very few successful treatments and even fewer health care providers who took my condition seriously. It was like I was living with an inconvenient rash rather than a fully-involved mentally and physically painful condition. I have been Dr. Jackson's patient for several years now and consider myself to be very fortunate indeed. My quality of life has improved exponentially thanks to his care.
