Specialties

Dr. Christy M Jackson has the following 2 specialties

  • Neurology

    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.

  • Psychiatry

    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.

She ruined my life

This doctor has ruined my life. she treated me with Botox unapproved for the condition herself diagnosed me with (cervical HD). As the result of her off label treatment, the excruciating burning HD I got after Botox injection has not stopped for one second in past 16 months. I visited 4 other HD doctors, 2 being out of state best in nation.. all stating Botox was not right and I didn't have chronic migraine which is the only condition Botox is used for. I am using every platform to express my nightmare of these past months due to he trail treatment.

Happy Patient

I love Dr. Jackson! She knew immediately what the cause of my pain was and treated it appropriately. It required several more visits and treatments and I've been fine since. She is clear in her explanations and very personable. I have a lot of confidence in her.

Five Stars

It was long ago and I have more complications and pain now. I am wondering about Trigeminal Neurology. I have had TMJ for 5 yrs. and it is getting worse. Jaw pain is very difficult and sleeping is difficult with the pain and headaches.

Best Dr ever

Dr Jackson is the best Dr I have ever had, and that's saying a lot since I'm 70 years old and have had chronic pain (cluster headaches and spinal stenosis) for the past 28 years. She has brought more relief than all of the other neurologists combined. She is knowledgable, compassionate and thorough. On my first visit she said, "I can't promise I can get rid of your headaches, but I will promise you that I won't quit trying." She never seems rushed and actually listens to my concerns and feelings. Dr Jackson is the standard by which I measure all other doctors now.
