Dr. Todd Edward Jackman, MD
Dr. Jackman performed my spinal L4/L5 fusion 6 weeks ago. From the moment I walked into his office, his entire staff was not only pleasant, but very welcoming. I was extremely nervous considering I was waiting to hear what type of spine surgery I was going to have. Dr. Jackman made me feel right at ease from the moment he walked in with a big smile on his face & shook my hand. He sat down & went through all of my images with me & explained in depth exactly what procedure he was going to perform and why. I must have asked a few dozen questions & he answered all of them without hesitation and never rushed me even once. By the time I left his office I felt very confident. The morning of my surgery, Dr. Jackman greeted me with that huge smile and asked me how I was doing. He greeted my husband with the same enthusiasm & made sure he answered all of my husband's questions as well. He prepared me for how I was going to feel afterwards and explained to me the recovery process. I stayed in the hospital a few days longer than I anticipated, but Dr. Jackman wanted to make sure that I was ready to go home before he discharged me. He came by to check on me & my incision a few times during my stay, although, his staff was doing a wonderful job. The surgery recovery process is quite tough, even 6 week out, but Dr. Jackman has been there every step of the way & even had me come into his office on 2 separate occasions because he was concerned after I called and spoke with his assistant. Even though I won't make a full recovery for a few more months, I feel very confident in Dr. Jackman's work. I have already recommended Dr. Jackman to a friend who resides out of state. Dr. Jackman is definitely one of a kind. His wonderful demeanor, enthusiasm, bed side manner, and endless knowledge of his craft has far exceeded my expectations. We need more physician/doctors/surgeons, working professionals & just people in general like Dr.Jackman.

Dr. Jackman and team were amazing! I woke up from my low back surgery already feeling 100% better than I had been feeling for months when I had back and sciatic pains. The surgery center was great and I was on my way home in a matter of hours after arriving. I am now 7 weeks post op and basically back to normal life with no pain. Dr. Jackman and staff are very friendly, caring, attentive, and knowledgeable. I feared back surgery for years, but now realize it was nothing to fear and far worth it.

Manole, Irina M, MD
Dr. Irina Manole is the best doctor I have ever found. She used to be at Highline but now is in Bellevue. I would drive the extra time it takes to go to her because she is kind, understanding, competent, open-minded and will actually take seriously what the patient says. Not many doctors even come close to her level of expertise and understanding.

Tips & Advices
A child should see his or her pediatrician frequently during the first few years. Once the child reaches age 3, parents should schedule a doctor's visit at least once per year. Before that, however, the American Academy of Pediatrics suggests parents arrange visits according to the following schedule:
  • 2 to 5 days old
  • 1 month old
  • 4 months old
  • 6 months old
  • 9 months old
  • 12 months old
  • 15 months old
  • 24 months old (2 years)
  • 30 months old (2.5 years)
No, parents should call 911, an emergency physician, or a pediatric emergency physician if a child suffers an acute illness or injuries. Doctors in these fields are more qualified than pediatricians to handle emergency situations.
A well-visit is a routine visit with a pediatrician to track a child's development, discuss medical or emotional concerns, and receive immunizations and medical advice.
Yes, pediatricians provide immunizations for infants and children up through 21 years.
No, pediatricians do not have to be board certified.They're only required to have a state license. However, certification indicates a dedication to studying pediatrics beyond the requirements.
