Dr. Annie M Jackson has the following 2 specialties
A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.
A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

if you call within business hrs, you still get the recording like its closed. a patient has to wait at least an hr or close to it just to see her and then it takes awhile once you go back for her to come in. she charges 100 per visit to spend 10mins or less talking with you. not happy with her services at all!!!!
I have always liked Dr. Jackson. She treated my brother for MS as well as myself for chiari malformation. However, in spring of 09 I began having terrible problems with her office staff. These problems included leaving on hold for over 20 minutes, not returning my calls, holding paperwork (long term disability (for over 6 months and when it was turned in there were repeated mistakes)) and charging for medical records and then not giving them all. I wrote a letter explaining my problems to Dr. Jackson and it was ignored. Although I did not get approved for long term disability for my neurological condition, I would have gotten it for pregnancy, however since my paperwork was held so long by her office, it was too late for me to do anything about it, so her office made me lose a lot of money. The waiting time is also terrible, I have spent an hour and longer waiting for an appointment. The average waiting time is over 40 minutes for each appointment. She is a good doctor but the problems with her office staff aren't worth me going back to her. Also, since she ignored my letter and did not try to get in touch with me, I assumed that she no longer cared and did not want to continue being my neurologist. Unless I eventually get an apology and an explanation, I will not go back.
Dr. Jackson is not professional on how she interacts with her patient. She did not know what she was doing. when it came time to refer a patient to another doctor it was a yr later. We were informed from the neurosurgion that she could have done what he is going to do so that we could get our lives back. I can assure you that we will not see her again if we need to see someone we would go out of county. I will make sure that people know the experince that we had with her and I assure you it was not good. She kind of just washed her hands with us and charged us a lot of money for the little service that she provided. If I were the insurance company I would be asking for my money back. The quallity of service was very, very, very poor. i hope she can sleep at night with providing poor service.
