Dr. Jacks is the best doctor in Las Vegas. She is so compassionate, easy to talk to and really cares about her patients. I wish Dr. Jacks could be my everything doctor. More doctors could really learn from her. She is AMAZING. If you want a exceptional Doctor, look no further you have found her. Dr. Jacks nurses are great. They give the same level of compassion that Dr. Jacks gives -- it is great when the Dr. and the nurses compliment each other.

Dr. Jacks has been treating my father for several years for his lung cancer. With her care he has been in remission for 6 yrs. She is a very kind considerate and respectful oncologist. I would highly recommend her to anyone who has the unfortunate diagnosis of cancer. We have great trust in her care and expertise.On a recent hospital stay she was notified and came to see my Dad w/in 3 hours of him being admitted. There should be so many more Drs. like her! We simply adore her.
