One Star

I waited for one hour for dr Jackson and she never showed up for my appointment. Office staff did not know where she was and was not able to get in touch with her. I left. Unbelievable! So unprofessional. I'm going elsewhere.

Three Stars

Dr. jackson is very competent and a pleasant person. I'm sure she knows her stuff. However, I found her to be in quite a rush after my 2 proceedures and she spoke very quickly when explaining what she found during my endo and my procto, I was a little out of it from the aneshtesia and had difficulty following all her commentary. Fortunately , my wife was there with me and was able to remember everything she said. Also, I asked her for a prescription for hemmrhoids and she forgot to phone it in to CVS so I had to call her 5 days later to remind her assistant to do that. She is a very pleasant person and i believe she is very good at what she does. I have a follow up with her today and I am anxious to tell her about some new developments.

Her staff is knowleadgeable about their position and answered question in regards to insurance issues and informed me completely of what I was to expect in regards to my procedure as far as what I had to do for the prep and for my end of the insurance responsibility.

Great experience

I had my very first colonoscopy by Dr. Jackson, and the whole experience was great. I was nervous, but everyone from the receptionist on were very kind, and caring. I was put at ease right away. Dr. Jackson was terrific, very personable, encouraged questions, and made me very comfortable. Much different than the doctor my husband used for his.
