  • Family Medicine

    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.

Horrible Office Manager Paula

Very rude office manager Paula. Disservice to patients concerns or needs. I know people who have left Dr. Jackson's practice because of his unprofessional staff. It is Unfortunate being that Dr. Jackson seems to be a caring physician. I would NOT recommend this office as long as his staff (Paula) is employed.

Dr. Jackson and staff are caring. I've been going there for years. Since they have move to the new building though, the time in waiting area could be better and needs more privacy. The gal at the front who answers phones etc. could use some personable skills. (eye contact, greeting, etc.) But the nursing staff and Dr. Jackson himself...WONDERFUL and knowledgeable.

Dr J is Great

Even having graduated from Montlake College he is a great doctor. When I had headaches and facial numbness he was very concerned and sent me for a MRI. Turned out it was a brain tumor and he was very compassionate. His staff has always been nothing but professional. I hope it will be the same at his new office. Thank you Dr. are the best!
