"I have been going to Dr. Jackman for the past 15 years. She is the most kind, understanding, caring doctor I have ever met. She cares about every aspect about me, not just the physical."

"Dr. Dan goes beyond the call of duty--not with one or two patients but with each one he meets. If it had not been for his experience, knowledge and attention to detail, I would never have delivered my last child safely."

"Dr. Dan and his staff always greet you with a smile. The office is warm and friendly and the care is outstanding."

"Dr. Dan is very knowledgable and caring, he takes his time and makes you feel like you are his only patient for the day."

"Dr. Linda, Thank you for your patience & not giving up the last few years. The journey was anything but easy. I am now feeling like myself again and it feels great! I have my energy back and my mind is clear and at peace. Please continue to care for people as you do. The health care system needs more like you."

"Dear Dr Linda, It was a pleasure to visit with you last month. You made me feel so comfortable and answered all my questions. Thank you so very much for all your kindness and your sensitivity to my situation. I really appreciate it." "I will be most happy and enthusiastic to recommend your practice to my patients."

"Dr. Linda, Thank you so much for your sharing, caring, empathy and support. I really appreciate your skills."

Dr Pesavento, "I have been a patient of yours (and recently Dr Kleiss since I have 3 teenage girls) for close to 18 yrs. I feel a need to let you know that your staff is one of the nicest, most accomodating professionals I have ever dealt with. Each time I have calleId with questions or concerns, I have been taken care of immediately, and with the utmost professionalism and kindness."

"I have always been put through to the nurse immediately. They have always taken the time to listen to my conccerns and relieve any issues I might have had. The same goes with office visits. It is pretty rare to have a group of people working with you that are so nice to deal with, especially in health care."

Linda Kleiss ND CFNP

"A patient visit is an opportunity to form a relationship in which the patient is encouraged to become an active participant in her health care. This relationship is fostered by mutual communication and respect. I can promote the health and well-being of my patients by LISTENING well and then offering current and appropriate treatment modalities. I try to blend alternative therapies with western medicine, using more of an Integrative approach. Perhaps more importantly, I incorporate a holistic environment for my patients. Exploring the mind, body and spirit and how these play a significant role in our overall health."
