The environment is pleasant and quiet. Staff members are friendly and helpful. Most of all, I feel like the information about my issue is accurate and informative. That is so important when you are thinking about your health and choices that you have to make! Also, the staff members are quick but not rushing you with care! The person that took my blood...friendly and excellent. The nurse that I saw before I saw Dr. Jacks was so kind! And Dr. Jacks is top notch!

Everyone was nice to me. I didn’t have to wait but about 5 minutes for them to call me back to take blood and then I waited just a little bit to see Dr. Jacks. She was very nice to me. She let me know that I would see another doctor on my next visit, Dr. Porter.

Dr. Jacks attributes her decision to work in oncology to her mentors in basic science labs and clinical units. They introduced her to promising advances in oncology research and deepened her appreciation for the oncologist-patient relationship. She has a clinical focus in head, neck and thoracic cancers, including lung and esophageal diseases. Dr. Jacks believes the best way to fight these and other forms of cancer is through prevention. She helps patients choose a healthy lifestyle that decreases cancer risks. Dr. Jacks is a Charleston native and is happy to be back in the Carolinas with her husband, Sam Jacks, a cardiothoracic surgeon, and their son, George. In her free time, she enjoys yoga, cooking and traveling.
