The practice is independent and accepts most insurance, including Medicare and Ohio Medicaid. The office is located on the campus of Flower Hospital.  Dr. Jackson performs most of his deliveries and surgeries at Flower, but also has privileges at St. Anne’s, St. Vincent’s, and St. Luke’s Hospitals.

How do your services make someone feel better?

In order to make others feel better, we can try medications or procedures to alleviate pain and discomfort.  We also give peace of mind by doing regular visits, breast exams, scheduling screening tests like mammograms and performing routine Pap smears.

What go to things do you use to make yourself feel better and what can you recommend to others?

For me, some key things for feeling well are exercise and eating right.  It is always amazing to me how much better I feel with even a little daily exercise – a bike ride or a walk.  Both of those things are easy, inexpensive and can be done at any pace.
