Dr. Jackson is well versed and knowledgeable in the field of dermatology. She keeps abreast of new therapies and medicines and constantly attends trainings/association meetings sharing this information with her clientele. I have a condition in which I’ve sought out and traveled for dermatology appointments prior to me knowing of Dr. Jackson’s practice. I no longer had to travel to see other well known specialists which she knew and they recommended. Once I began seeing Dr. Jackson, I strongly recommended my husband to make an appointment. He did reluctantly, but once he met Dr. Jackson he now makes his own appointments to see her. We highly recommend Dr. Jackson and the Skin Wellness practice!
