What People Say About Dr. Michael Jackson, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Thus far, Dr. Jackson seemed incredibly knowledgeable about my wife's condition, and the limitations in the current orthopaedic model - where medications and band-aids are used to ensure eventual surgery, and ultimately recurring income for the insurance provider - his explanation of what was occurring was informative and (later verified) completely accurate.

I was 70 when I had PRP on my right hip and two fingers of my left hand. In less than one year, I was back to running and had gone from eight pounds of grip strength in my hand to 80! 2 yrs later I developed a major issue involving all ligaments, tendons and cartilage of my left knee. I am in my 5th month following stem cell + platelet 'booster'; just had my 74th birthday pain free!!; and today my PT urged me to start biking again/assured me I am on schedule to run in June!!!

I am happy to say that the information from the staff and Dr. Jackson about pain levels and pain medicine was accurate for me. My treatment was for plantar fasciitis and knee pain. I understand that it takes time to decide how effective the stem cell therapy results are, but I feel quite positive only a week after treatment. Post treatment therapeutic exercises are definitely require

Dr JACKSON is as good as they get. He is pioneering a New therapy using Stem cells to repair joints instead of replacing the joint. It works. I have done it. The cost is considerably lower then replacement as is the time off from work and the pain. As for Dr. Jackson. He will give the patient all the time that the patient needs.He has a sense of humor. This doctor is PURE gold. I trust him 100%
