Biography

Michael R. Jackson, MD Founded Optimal Health Systems What is Optimal Health Systems? It is the system of the delivery of Optimum Comprehensive Health Care and this takes many things. To begin with it takes Clinical Judgement. This is something that requires Knowledge, Experience, Compassion, and Time. And I propose that the common element needed is Time. To maintain the highest standards one must take the time for medical education. Advanced Preventative Medicine courses are expensive and time consuming. New technologies, better tools and therapies all have a learning curve that takes Time. Obviously Experience only comes with Time and a lot of it. Head knowledge is one thing but actually knowing what to do with it another.Compassionate care cannot happen in a rushed time compressed setting.It simply takes more Time to comprehensively test, thoroughly analyze, review, strategize, fully diagnose and fully apply all that is available today in Advanced Preventative Medicine. Optimal Care must be individualized and all of this takes the knowledge, interest and time to apply this one Person at a time. Components of Optimal Health -Lifestyle: greater than 70% of your health comes from diet, exercise, BMI, habits, stress, sleep, laughter, spirit, wholeness. -Advanced Medical Technologies, especially with regard to Vascular Risk Analysis. and Risk Modification. This is Real and actually Huge and can be a vital component to optimizing health, resulting in improved function and enhanced longevity. -Genetics: the first rule here is to "pick your parents wisely" after that identifying risk and limit where possible. For many the first and best step towards health optimization is lifestyle modification with attention to diet, exercise, habits and weight control. Because as noted above: over 70% of your modifiable Health comes from Lifestyle! The details of the actual application of Optimal Health Systems therefore is as different as each individual patient, but always includes a strong interest in: Preventative Medicine, Advanced Medical Technologies, Third Generation Serum and Lipid Analysis, Genetics and the compassionate integration of all of this to each individual human person. Addressing the full overlap of the Body, the Mind and the Spirit whenever possible Optimal Health Systems is the cumulation of my lifelong passion to assist in the enjoyment and prolongation of the Best of Physical, Psychological and Spiritual Health. If you can sense the truth in the concept that average, standard of care medicine is just that and that Optimal Health Care is another, you are just the patient that Optimal Health Systems would like to care for.

    in University Place, WA |
    Dr. Michael R Jackson is a caring and thorough doctor. I searched and saw several doctors before settling on this gentleman. He listens to my issues and is conservative with medication and honest about health issues. He takes a preventative approach to medicine and I appreciate his demeanor very much!

    Dr. Jackson is great. Office staff are not helpful and they do not return phone calls.

    Dr. Jackson says...

    Preventative Medicine is all too often lost in the shuffle when 'The Tyranny of the Urgent' is allowed into the Medical Equation. If it is not the First priority it will be No priority at all.

    Listening to Thought Leaders in the world of Heart Attack and Stroke Prevention is a great motivator, because there is growing evidence that properly applied Modern Technologies can identify risk factors, modify and change (improve) outcomes!

    Dr. Jackson says...

    At Optimal Health Systems, we use State of the Art Ultrasound to identify and monitor vascular risk.  Carotid Artery Intima-Media Thickness (CIMT), Echocardiography, Carotid Artery Duplex, Peripheral Arterial and Venous Studies along with a wide variety of more routine ultrasound studies are all available onsite.

    Serum Biomarkers for Advanced Lipid Analysis and Inflammatory Marker Assessment complement the above anatomic studies for the identification of disease long before symptoms arrive.

    Pulmonary function testing, EKG, ECAT, Holter and Cardiac Event Monitoring are all available onsite.
