    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Ok, I'll start by saying this - the staff is very good overall. There is one lady there that has a bad habit of asking you a ton of questions while you have a thermometer in your mouth - but other than that, they are very friendly. Dr. Jackson himself is friendly enough, as far as that goes. The issue I ran into is in the treatment of diabetes Specifically, he doesn't seem too keen on details where medication is concerned. I had a situation where my blood sugar started skyrocketing out of the blue, with no changes to my medication, diet, or exercise levels. He took an HA1C - which was good. This is normal for a diagnostic tool. Then, when he saw how high it was, he called me to tell me he was sending some new medication to the pharmacy to start me on. So far, so good. Well, I get to the pharmacy, and what he had prescribed was a medication I was already taking - at half the dosage I had been taking. I'm not sure what he was thinking, but I knew I needed at least a 2nd opinion. When I talked to another doctor, he tried not to show his astonishment, but I could tell he was pretty surprised as well. All he said was - we need to get you started on insulin - yesterday. He then said that I needed to schedule an eye and foot exam to ensure no damage had been done there. Long story short - there was some diabetic retinopathy and neuropathy, but nothing too significant. I'd say use extreme caution if you have any chronic conditions. You need a doctor that is going to pay attention to how the treatment plan is going.

I have had high cholesterol and blood pressure for years. NO one before Dr. Jackson had been able to get it under control. He took the time, asked questions and tried combinations until he found what worked. I have NEVER had a family doctor such as this. I highly recommend him to anyone.
