After many months of unproductive treatments by other physicians, I went to Dr. Robert J. Jackson for a second opinion. Dr. Jackson spent the time to accurately assess my condition and went through each of my treatment options in detail. From the four options he outlined, I selected the cervical replacement procedure with the Mobi-C, which is a very simple and effective cervical disk replacement device. Dr. Jackson and his surgical team were extremely professional, competent, and compassionate. I consider myself fortunate for working with him and his team. Best of all, my pain and discomfort is completely gone and I’m back to a normal active life.

Have not done the surgery

He responded to all my queries. I have found him to be a caring doctor. I am trying to get my surgery in a hurry and if I end up getting a surgery with him, I will update.

Great Doctor! Knows his stuff!

Dr. Jackson is great, his scheduler on the other hand is the most unpleasant, unhappiest person you will meet. She is never there when I call the office and when you get her voicemail it asks for you not to leave a message. Sure, I will just keep trying back on the off chance you will actually be there. When I do actualy get to speak with her you can just tell she is annoyed and is scowling on the other end. I wish there was a way to deal with the Dr. himself and skip dealing with Ms. Unpleasant. But besides that, the Dr. is great and has given me my life back.
