My experience with this Doctor and his staff was great. I was scheduled within a couple of weeks of calling. My surgery was then scheduled for the following week. I had immediate relief after the surgery and only a very small incision to show for it. I also only had one post op visit, but I saw no reason to return again and again. My problem was solved. I would recommend Dr. Jackson to my friends and family

Worst day of my life

This man performed brain surgery on me and I nearly died. Stand clear of him, his partners and hospital!! I chose him for his credentials and for the simple fact that he seemed so knowledgeable and a perfectionist. Mentioned to me before the surgery that he had performed over 80+ of the same procedures and not once did he ever have complications. Well, low and behold, I suppose I was his first! He refused to accept that he botched my surgery, tried to cover it up, had the labs at the hospital and top pathologist named Dixon fraudulently amend my records and lab reports(later uncovered and proved by an actual truthful doctor and their many staff members and later the attorneys)! This guy will stop at nothing to salvage his *perfect* reputation! He does NOT have his patients health in his best interest! After his mess up, I eventually had to have 5 more reconstructive surgeries and to this day am suffering and disabled do to his negligence! Had I been brave enough to sue him for malpractice, I would have won according to 3 top lawyers in Dallas! I chose not to just for the simple fact that I was no where near better and afraid that lawsuit might hinder my chances of finding a doctor to fix what he messed up! He needs to be shut down!!! I will never fully trust another medical professional due to this unprofessional so called surgeon.

Dr Jackson is wonderful surgeon - did appear to have much time for patient post op; Only saw my mother once post op. His office is hard to schedule appointment it took 3 months to get a call back for a post op appointment. the staff is rude - the scheduler and the collection staff

Definitely recommend

I visited a neurosurgeon prior to Dr. Jackson who was very adamant on cutting and operating. Dr. Jackson and his staff performed some physical tests to see what my state of health was. They discussed the issue and the procedure. He also walked me into their computer room/offices to show me the images of my MRI. He explained in detail what was the issue and what needed to happen. I felt very comfortable with him and also knowing he had been in D Magazine as top doctor. The only advice would be explain and over communicate the exact steps within the procedure. There were some steps they told me at my 3 week check up and I wish I would have known to take proper precaution. I am already being very careful, but I thought I was progressing. When, in turn, I could have very easily re-injured myself. The nursing staff at the facility did not tell me about certain materials to avoid. Also, Dr. Jackson came to see me right when I was coming out of anesthesia, but I would have rather him come when I was moved to the inpatient area. I would have been more awake and would have been able to ask questions.
