JMG Reviews


“I saw Dr. Cummings for a physical and he was excellent. He was picture of professionalism and very attentive to my questions and concerns. The front desk staff and medical assistant were also polite and professional. I would trust my medical care to any of the providers in the Jackson Group.”

“I would highly recommend Dr. Cummings. A friend of mine recommended him and it was the best medical decision I have made thus far. His medical knowledge and creativity lead to a diagnosis of my leg injury that three other doctors and physical therapy offices could not identify. Throughout the process his empathy and motivation to find a cure restored the hope that I had lost that I would one day be able to run again. I have recently signed up for the half marathon in May of this year. Other than his medical know-how, he proved to be sociable, approachable, and professional.”

“I’ve been a patient for my entire 21 years and every time I’ve been sick Jackson Medical Group is where I go because I know it will be an effective visit and also not awkward, which a lot of other doctors office visits seem to be. The JMG staff is friendly and I have never had cause for complaint.”

“My family has used Jackson Medical Group for 25+ years and we each have our favorites … Dr Jackson is the favorite of my 22 yr old son because he’s simply able to adeptly relate to young adults! Dr. Cummings is great with my husband who has a long standing chronic disease and there is no one quite like Nancy Warner as a resource for women. We’ve been through all sorts of health challenges in the last 25 years and this is the place we continue to return to for consistently reliable care.”

“Amoret Lifquist (now Amoret Pritchard) is a great. I highly recommend her for her open-mindedness and interpersonal skills alone. Amoret is willing to take the time to consider the alternatives and give a professional, honest recommendation. I know that if I have an appointment with Amoret, I will leave with all of my questions answered and my concerns addressed, even if I just get squeezed in for an emergency 10 minute appointment.”

“I have been in the expert care of Nancy Warner, FNP for over 27 years and I can honestly say she has saved my life more than once. Her broad medical knowledge accompanied by her compassionate comprehensive care is greatly valued by me and my entire family. She is our “go to” healthcare professional for basically everything. If needed she refers us to a specialist and her referrals are as good as gold. I can’t even express in words how much Nancy has meant to the ongoing healthcare of our family, we treasure her!”

“Dear Dr. Cummings, Hilary, Cameron and JMG office staff, I am so thankful and grateful for your always demonstrating friendliness, efficiency, respect, kindness, gentleness and loving concern for me, a patient. This year, in particular, I have had to bother all of you with extra visits, multiple phone calls with request and always you responded so patiently, thank you. My latest request, with a letter from Dr. Cummings was a huge request and, once again, it was completed with patience and efficiency.”

“My Yelp rating mostly refers to Dr. Cummings as well as Amoret. Dr. Cummings has been my doctor for many years as well as my mothers. He’s a busy guy but a guy that cares and has earned my utmost respect in all manners. Dr. Cummings has a great personality too. If you see Dr. Cummings you can be sure you’ll get the straight up answers as he sees it. So if you’re looking for a new GP, Dr. Cummings is your guy.”

“Re: Excellence in Customer Service at your Carpinteria office . . .

The timing was remarkable for each stage of treatment. Your staff made sure I received the best service and did not get lost in the system . . .

The professional service was terrific at every level, and the degree of care I received makes me feel special as a patient. Both I and you are lucky to have such a competent and caring staff . . .

Thanks again for all your staff has done for me, Robert Sedivy”

“I really appreciate the care I’ve received from Karen Hanna. I especially grateful for the time she took with me during a recent pelvic exam. I usually have difficulty with pelvic exams but Karen took the time with me beforehand to ease my concerns. She has followed through on making referrals for me. Excellent! She is patient and very direct. With Karen Hanna, I feel that I am being cared for by someone who really cares about me and my problems.”

“I’m glad that I can make appointments with Karen Hanna at the JMG Goleta office, because it’s closer to my home than the Santa Barbara or Carpinteria offices. I appreciate the caring staff of Jackson Medical Group!”

“I want thank Nancy Warner, Dr. Guddal and the Jackson Medical staff for taking such good care of my father. I brought in my father with severe back pain. Nancy Warner successfully diagnosed a kidney stone with a urine test and got us into Sansum Clinic the same day for a follow-up with the urologist and a CT a Pueblo Radiology. Then, Dr Guddal from your office called the next day to follow-up. ”

“Your staff made sure that my father did not ‘fall through the cracks’ in the system. Much appreciated! The professional service was top-notch at every level. We highly recommend Jackson Medical Group. Thank you! ”

“I’ve been going here to Jackson Medical Group since I was an adolescent, as well as my family through our insurance. Their doctors are excellent, specifically Dr. Ehsani and Dr. Cummings. I have seen them the most, especially Dr. Ehsani at the Goleta office that is nearest to my house now.

Dr. Ehsani is extremely patient, mellow mannered, kind, caring. Dr. Ehsani listens you and will help out a lot if you call him later for further advice, progress reports.

I’ve only had the same sort of experience with Dr. Cummings. Very easy going, nice, caring, and super knowledgeable. He usually offers insights he’s seen over his years and goes a little into the science of things if you press him, which I really like.

My family members all love them too.”

“This review pertains to Gigliola Bernardi, one of the group’s newest nurse practitioner. I moved to Santa Barbara in September and have had a couple minor medical issues come up. Gigliola has been possibly the most personable, caring, and helpful medical professional I have had in my life. She is very much a people person with a friendly and genuine demeanor. She truly cares about her patients’ well being.

I have seen some very sub-par doctors, especially throughout college, which had given me a near phobia of the doctor’s office. However, I feel truly comfortable with my medical relationship at Jackson Medical Group all thanks to Gigliola. Thank you!”

“I am 18 and find this place to be a great place with a friendly atmosphere. I have Dr. Cummings who explains any medical issues I have in a fun way and does not make things awkward and scary like most doctors. I totally recommend this facility and will be staying for a long time. Its hard to find a genuine primary care doctor anymore. Thank you JACKSON MEDICAL GROUP!”
