October 23, 2013

I thoroughly enjoyed meeting Dr. Gafoor and Dr. Chris Jackson, and I have the utmost confidence in their abilities. In addition to Dr. Gafoor, I would like Dr. Jackson to stay involved in my plan of care, if at all possible. I got the impression that Dr. Jackson may not always be the one that I see in addition to Dr. Gafoor.

July 05, 2013

Dr Jackson and his assistant's follow up were amazing. Thank you

June 27, 2013

I fell Dr. Jackson realizes that patients like me who have a deteriorating condition are looking for hope and understanding from a provider. Knowing that there is little that can be done to alleviate my condition he was willing to spend the time it took to explain what might be helpful and whether or not it would be likely to help matters. I felt a sincere concern from him for my feelings and concerns.

June 24, 2013

My symptoms seem to be pretty routine in their eyes even though they are not.

June 17, 2013

Very good

June 17, 2013

Dr. Jackson is a very good Doctor, good at explaining meds, etc.

June 14, 2013

I already have recomended Dr. Jackson!! He was amazing!! Thank you so much!!

June 12, 2013

I attended the first visit with my wife. It was pretty business like. I did not attend the second visit, though I escorted her there. These responses are based on discussions with her afterwards. I do not plan to attend any future visits as my wife feels confident in the doctor, and very hopeful about treatment options

June 03, 2013

Dr. Jackson has been by far the best Rheumatologist I have consulted with! He was very compassionate and thoroughly went through everything with me from start to finish. I left feeling confident I am in good hands and I had better knowledge of my prognosis.

May 28, 2013

Dr.Jackson was really nice. He didn't rush through our visit. Dr. Jackson explained everything about my condition thoroughly. He was also mindful that I don't have insurance and he explained cost effective methods to use at this time.

May 27, 2013

Dr. Jackson spent 50+ minutes working through my problems. Although I will be seeing another specialist, he said he will be available to help me.

May 10, 2013

Was able to talk to me about my condition and make me understand what I need to do going forward. Took the time to explain what was needed.

April 23, 2013

I was very impressed that Dr Jackson call me to go over my tests

April 16, 2013

Dr. Jackson is very professional. He takes the time to exclaim condition and treatment in terms easily understood. He is straight forward and honest and genuinely cares about his patients

April 15, 2013

We were very impressed with Dr. Jackson. He explained every thing and told us what he thought we.. should do. He even called my Doctors and told them what he thought. He called me at home. My husband and I thought he was very good.

April 08, 2013

The Doctor took time to explain items pertaining to why I was there. He was very helpful. I felt very comfortable in the office.

April 06, 2013

Dr. Jackson is a very excellent, intelligent, and caring doctor. I highly recommend him

March 28, 2013

The doctor was very courteous, professional and knowledgable. I was impressed and appreciative with the amount of time I received with him. I appreciate that he spoke to me like an educated human. I also greatly appreciate his follow up phone call. This rarely happens. I had confidence in his competence as a doctor of Rheumatology. Where I lacked confidence, however, was about being listened to, really listened to. I know he heard me, but I left feeling very hopeless about getting help with whatever is going on in my body. I felt like I was being passed off because my situation won't show up in labs. I realize there are many times where a doctor can not provide answers but perhaps he could provide a little more assurance. That being said, I am also willing to accept the possibility that my expectations were unrealistic. All in all, it was a pleasant experience.

March 25, 2013

Dr Jackson is the best!

March 21, 2013

I was very happy with the care I received from Dr. Jackson. I had been having pain and swelling for 3 months without any answers from my primary care Dr. Someone from the clinic having looked at my referral knew what test to have run before my first visit. I was expecting to go and just meet the Dr. and have more tests, but Dr. Jackson already had the diagnosis and we were on the way to getting things under control. I was very happy with Dr. Jackson. He took the time to answer all our questions, asking several times if we had any questions and made sure to tell me to write down any more questions I might have. He took the time we needed. I didn't feel like he was rushed. I felt like he really cared and that I was important. I felt so overwhelmed with gratitude as I left.

March 08, 2013

Dr Jackson is always very thorough with his observations. He is also very straight and to the point. When he goes over my medications, for just in case purposes, writes down the exact instructions of how I need to take them. I suffer from active Rhuematoid Arthritis and he is always positive that we can get it controlled. I would recommend him to anyone.

February 26, 2013

The care I received was exemplary. I am concerned that I did not receive a call about my blood tests. I was told I would receive a call on Mon. And it is now Tues.- no word.

February 25, 2013

#9) Confidence in this care provider(Dr. Jackson) is 110%.

February 19, 2013

Dr Jackson and his intern really put me at ease and took the time to listen to my symptoms and asked a lot of great questions and then spend ample time talking things over with me

February 18, 2013

The nursing assistants, clerical staff and the doctor were all excellent! It made coming to a new place so much easier and I felt very confidant in the care received.

February 13, 2013

Dr. Jackson is one of the best doctors I have ever had. My life is better because of him.

February 11, 2013

It was a very good experience. Dr. Jackson did much to assuage my concerns about a possible disease or illness. He was very courteous and took the time to know me a little better. I appreciated his sense of humor very much. It helped a lot.

February 05, 2013

Did not want to diagnose without x-rays. I received x-rays and diagnosis but no follow up call. Not sure what to expect. Should I be cautious and careful or carry on as usual. Need doctor to call after studying x-rays.

January 29, 2013

Dr. Jackson has one of the best "bedside manner" I've ever experienced.

January 27, 2013

Dr. Jackson was kind enough to draw a picture for me so I could visually see the effects of RA on my body. He also called me and left more instuctions for follow up care.

January 13, 2013

He described each test instead of just saying "go do this blood work and we well call you" i knew what each test was and what it was for

January 13, 2013

The nurses in infusion, particularly Dar and Darcy are the best.

January 07, 2013

Excellent

December 31, 2012

Dr Jackson is always wonderful. He explains treatment options in detail and never seems rushed. He also walks me out to the waiting room which makes me feel like he really cares about my wellbeing.

November 19, 2012

Dr Jackson is wonderful. He takes his time and answers all your questions. Never makes you feel rushed. Very compassionate. Always a good experience.

November 19, 2012

Dr Jackson is very kind and good natured. He is extremely helpful and cares very much about his patients. He has helped me to learn to live with a chronic debilitating condition that, when triggered, almost always immobilizes me for at least a few days. Through his efforts I received a diagnosis and attacks are less frequent as well as less severe. He has helped me to learn how to live with this condition and simultaneously be able to enjoy life.

November 12, 2012

Very good!

October 31, 2012

I could not have asked for a more caring and knowledgeable doctor than Dr. Jackson. He took a lot of time with me, and made an extra effort to assure that I understood his Dx and its implications.

October 19, 2012

East to talk to and listened

October 10, 2012

An excellent introduction to an excellent physician

September 15, 2012

Dr Jackson was excellent!

August 31, 2012

Was extremely impressed with the time and explanations given by the doctor. He was above and beyond what I have been used to with other doctors

August 06, 2012

Dr. Jackson was very knowledgeable and went through with me the step by step process he thought could be going on with me. He really helped me to get my head around what could be causing my symptoms with percentages of what was possible and included me in the process incorporating my medical knowledge into the plan.

July 16, 2012

Dr Jackson is EXCELLENT!! Very pleased with the care I receive and I do often recommend Dr Jackson to others. Awesome!

July 06, 2012

good

July 03, 2012

Dr. Jackson is always very considerate and makes sure I understand all aspects of my RA. He's very clear on treatment and medication and I trust him completely with all my problems. I consider him to be the very best.

July 03, 2012

Dr. Jackson was very friendly, drew diagrams to help with explanations and drew a chart with options which made it very easy to understand his explanations. I do have confidence in him, but his diagnosis was completely different from my previous doctor, s

July 02, 2012

I would definitely recommend Dr. Jackson to someone, but the likelihood of getting an appointment would be a long, long wait.

July 02, 2012

Dr. Jackson is amazing and got to the root of the problem

June 18, 2012

My Doctor discussed how we were going to approach my problem and set up a short term and long term plan of action. I finally felt progress in solving my problem. He is an amazing doctor with a professional yet comforting bed side manner.

June 04, 2012

I was very impressed that Dr. Jackson would call me immediately with test results. Showed genuine concern.

May 12, 2012

I've never had a doctor take the time for such a meticulous history. He never gave me the impression that he was in a hurry and had to move on to other patients. He shared, with me, so much information about RA, that the previous Rheumatologist I had seen in Nevada, had never done.

May 03, 2012

Comfortable to be with. Explained things thoroughly. Kind and concerned. Followed up immediately with me and spent extra time making sure insurance issues were covered and blood test were taken and accounted for.

April 24, 2012

Dr. Jackson relieved much of the anxiety I was undergoing simply by explaining rheumatoid arthritis, my own status with relationship to progression of RA, and what may be done with respect to treatment as RA progresses.

Dr Jackson is a very caring doctor and hears what I have to say.

April 20, 2012
