Patient Comments (5)

The procedures simply do not work. Waste of pain, money and time

Unfortunate lack of concern for others and childish attitude

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%
