Specialties

Dr. Christopher G Jackson has the following 2 specialties

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Arrogant

It was the worst doctor visit of my life. I went to Dr. Jackson because he was highly recommended, and, though he is extremely knowledgeable, it was obvious he had no interest in helping me. He was annoyed that I had gone to other doctors' for opinions, and explained that his lab-tests were better than anyone's, period. He wanted me to stop all of my medications and wait for my symptoms to return, and then he would treat me. He didn't like my current rheumy because she wasn't "American-trained". When my husband and I offered to bring all of the test taken in the hospital, etc. He refused, saying it was "a pile of work". Basically, because I disagreed with their first diagnosis and went elsewhere for a 2nd opinion, he was bent on making sure I knew he didn't like me, and he thought I was crazy. I left the appointment feeling discouraged and scared about what to do for the future. I don't doubt Dr. Jackson knows what he is doing, but he has no bedside manner. (And the place where he works "forgot" to send me a survey on our visit).
