Dr. Jackson is great!! However, I think he's so great he it a bit overcommitted with patients. Sadly I've never gone there and waited a minimum - sometimes over an hour to get seen, I'd just recommend when you have an appointment, to put in a huge cushion.

My cataract surgery was an excellant experience. He has given me my sight back free from corrective lenses. The colors are brilliant. As far as an eye surgeon he is certainly one of the best! My eye care is in expert hand with Dr. Jackson. Yours can be too!
