Dr Jackson reviewed my chart prior to coming into the room. This is a plus as so many times, you have to write your 'reason for your visit' then verbalize it again to the medical assistant/nurse and many times a 3rdtime to the physician upon entering the room. Not the case here. Also, Dr Jackson was a good listener. Examined my hands carefully, explained areas of pain and demonstrated that it was referred pain and showed the origin. Explained treatement options, a few injections later, I should be 'back in business.' His staff was professional, jovial and polite. I recommend without reservation.

Dr. Jackson was great! He was very patient with me and answered all of my questions. This was very important to me as so many doctors these days try to run their patients in and out like cattle. I knew Icould count on his advice and treatment options when I developed a case of "tennis elbow". I followed his recommendations and the pain went away. Highly recommended!

I think he is a very caring doctor. He has a heart for his profession and is truly interested in giving his clients the best medical care that can be given. I was very impressed by the way he explained whatmy problem was and what needed to be done to correct it. He is a down to earth person and very easy to converse with, which I find refreshing in a younger doctor!!. And last, but not least, Dr. Russell Jackson did all of this in an efficient manner while making me feel that I was his number one priority!! It took me about an hour of research on the internet to decide to give him a try. I am glad he is my doctor - this Doctor is definitely a keeper!!!! His Staff are very proficient & just as compassionate also! They go the extra mile to make you feel so important!! I absolutely think that this is a very top-notched professional medical practice - one you can have total confidence and trust with your care.

Incredibly attentive to my story. He's a doctor that really listens. He quickly diagnosed my problem and provided a focused treatment plan that did NOT include any surgery or even return visits (all with muscle treatments from another provider). Best doctor and staff I've every used.
