What would life be like for you without a physician to provide the healthcare you and your family need?

With the growing shortage of available providers, thousands across the United States do not have access to care, and many patients are turned away in their time of need. Jackson & Coker works to make a difference by stepping in during these challenging times and placing providers in communities that need them most.

The amount of lives touched and loved ones saved by our physicians is incredible, and for many, the physician stands as a liaison between their illness and a second chance at life.

One of these lives saved belongs to Deacon Billups, son of Daniel Billups, a client consultant at Jackson & Coker. Shortly after birth, Daniel’s son was diagnosed with craniosynostosis, a condition which causes abnormal brain and skull development

Daniel sat down with us to talk about his experience with the Neurologist who made a difference in his son’s life. Watch the video to see how Deacon is doing now.
