Ratings for Dr. Michelle S. Jackson
Do NOT use Dr. Jackson. She took an 87 year old patient off of an anti depressant medication without weaning her off of it and she had HORRIBLE withdrawals. She finally overcame that after months of feeling terrible. Now Dr Jackson decided to stop writing her a prescription for xanax, which she has been taking for a very long time.......with NO plan for weaning her off of it! I might mention this poor, sweet lady, was also diagnosed with shingles a month ago. This is not the time to try this and especially without a plan to taper off! After speaking with another doctor and a pharmacist they could not believe it! It is very dangerous to stop cold turkey and especially at that age. She obviously doesn't care about her patients at all!!!!
I saw her many years so my family followed. Then I came in crying because my health was deteriorating and I had been diagnosed with a very rare disease and did not wish to see her NP. The NP took offense, wrote up a discharge me as a patient letter and the doc signed it. She then said she could not call me in my R X s due to not having seen her in two yrs. If I did not see her how then did she fire me as a patient? My condition is fragile. I think this is why I was fired as a patient. The tech didnt even know how to properly place a b/p cuff, imperitive to me as extremes are part of my condition.
I have been going to see Dr. Jackson for 10 years and she is very sweet and answers my questions to the best of her knowledge. She is honest and she will go the extra mile to help her patients. She is very cautious about what medications she prescribes and she makes sure that you have all your blood work up to date and on file. I think she's a good physician and she certainly seems to try her best to do whatever is in the best interest of her patients.
