    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.

Should not be practicing

This physician is incompetent and dangerous. Several years ago i came to see her for bilous vomiting and extreme stomach pain. She continued to send me home. I didnt know it at the time but i was vomiting bile due to a severe obstruction. I checked myself into emergency and according to my surgeon i had maybe another hour or two and i would have been dead. What doctor doesnt recognize critical life- threatening stmptoms and the description of bile? I presented with the classic easy to tecognize stmptoms of critical and emergency GI distress. For a week she continued to send me home and scheduled me for radiology exams seceral weeks into the future, i would be dead if i hadn't been so delirious after a week of no sleep, no food, no water, and pain so bad my limbs went numb and checked into the ER.

A poor experience

I had a really negative experience with this provider, one of the worst I've ever encountered. I think her listening skills are terrible, her bedside manner could be best described as disinterested, and overall she was unprofessional and even used a 4-letter word during my appointment. She argued with me over how my body reacts to certain medications, and became frustrated (including a visible roll of the eyes) when I could not list previous medications I had tried for a certain condition. Most importantly to me, I didn't feel there was any partnering going on. This was old-school "doctor knows best" kind of medicine that I had hoped was long gone. At any rate, I should have known better when I found how easy it was to book an appointment with Dr. Jackson. Also when asking the staff for recommendations, her name was never mentioned as one of the better providers at this practice.
