Patient Comments (4)

Worst experience ever with any Doctors office in 40 years. Staff is incompetent as well as the Dr at doing his job. Everyone speaks very highly of Dr Jackson, but my experience is a disaster after he listed the wrong diagnosis to my insurance I was denied surgery and now am starting all over. 4...more

I have had 2 back surgeries and a neck surgery performed by Dr. Jackson. I could not have asked for a better physician! Very thorough and knowledgeable. Spent all the time I needed him to answering questions. I trust him to make the decisions that are best for me.

I found Dr. Jackson to a wonderful bedside manner. He sat there and explained the surgery to my husband and I, the risks and the recovery time. He answered all of our questions. But best of all, he did not get affended when I told him I wanted a second opinion.

I have been waiting to get a appointment for 10 days. My primary care provider faxed the referral. So far no response. Why does it take so long. I'm in server pain and can hardly walk.
