I’ve had Dr. Jackson for many years, he’s always been very kind and compassionate. He always has time to listen and is very understanding, he does all he can to help.

Most of the time, he is able to handle all my weirdness, and give me… See more
Dr. Jackson is always very cheerful. He is the friendliest doctor I’ve ever seen. I would say he has made my life much more enjoyable and I can talk to him about whatever is going on in my life. I’ve decided to keep working because of his doctoring. He’s a fantastic man.

We felt that he always gave us his time, but now with MDVIP there is quantity as well as quality in his consults with us. We… See more
Throughout my life, I have looked at being in my 60's with trepidation - so many body parts can begin to fail and too many things can start sagging. Dr. Jackson has mapped a 'Stay Healthy' course for me that is keeping me youthful on the inside and out. I really value his constant encouragement and medical confidence - he is an irreplaceable help in this journey of being… See more
Dr Jackson is the most amazing doctor I've ever met. He lives his mission daily and could never be replaced. And he's wicked smart too!!
Dear Doc Jackson (Rick)
I started seeing you in 2006 and always received good care from you and your excellent team. In 2011, I injured myself and I am now in a wheel chair for life. Doctor J was a calming influence during a chaotic time in my life. He prescribed the right medications to put me in a happier place and Im singing and doing the things I thought I'd lost forever.
