Dr. Theis and Dr. Jackson first met in a medical office in Bogalusa, Louisiana in 1996 and then worked with The Family Doctors in Marrero for 3 years, until 2000, when Dr. Jackson opened her solo practice and Dr. Theis went to Tulane to work full time at the medical school. They returned to the West Bank to practice together in 2008, this time in an office they run themselves!
See below for a little more about your doctors and what they can do for you.

Dr. Jackson's professional interests include preventive care, well-woman care and management of chronic diseases. In her free time, she loves being a mom and and sharing the outdoors with her daughter. She is skilled at photography (you'll find many of her photographs on the office walls, in fact), loves good books and travel.

He attended The Ohio State University School of Medicine in Columbus, Ohio for his M.D. degree, and stayed in Columbus to complete a 3-year residency in Family Medicine at Grant Medical Center in 1996.
After practicing on the West Bank for just over 2 years, Dr. Theis joined the faculty of Tulane Medical School in 2000 and spent the next 8 years teaching medical students and seeing patients at his practice in Uptown New Orleans.
