Savannah, GA |
I was his patient for 2 years with a continuous Achilles injury. I saw him my first and last visit, all other visits I saw his PA. I had a partial tear in my Achilles but he said it wasn't because the MRI didn't show a tear. I finally switched docs and confirmed that it was a partial tear. It was injured for so long it finally tore completely and I ended up having surgery by a much better physician.

I would not recommend Dr Jaakkola to anyone. I went to him in lot of pain and discomfort with plantar fasciitis and lederhosen. I was unable to walk my normal 2 miles everyday. He told me surgery would not work the fibroids would come back. Recommended therapy and buying insoles that they made ($130.00). No way... I got second opinion at MCG or AUH...last August 1916 I had successful surgery. And living without pain and all the walking I want. Thank you Lord.
