Dr. Terrell Jackson, MD was a fictional character on the ABC soap opera General Hospital.

He was portrayed by Khary Payton from January 5, 2011 to March 2011.


Dr. Terrell Jackson first appeared in Port Charles in the aftermath of the General Hospital ski trip tragedy. While the hospital is bustling with injured people, there is no one around to take care of Morgan Corinthos' broken leg.

Terrell jumps in and helps out. It turns out that Terrell had an interview for a job at General Hospital, but had not yet been hired. He is soon officially hired by the chief of staff Steven Webber.

It is then revealed that Terrell is really in Port Charles to work an agenda. He had been asked by his ex-lover Dr. Lisa Niles to come and seduce Robin Scorpio-Drake away from her husband Patrick. Lisa wanted Patrick for herself, but Terrell, wanted Lisa. Lisa tells Terrell that she will give him a second chance with her if he seduces Robin.

Terrell agrees to go along with Lisa's scheme. Terrell, however, starts to genuinely care for Robin. After a while, Lisa beefs up her game and starts more drastic actions in breaking up Robin and Patrick's marriage and Terrell's seduction of Robin wanes.

In March of 2011, Terrell tells Carly and Jasper Jacks that their daughter Josslyn has kidney cancer. He tells them that a kidney transplant is an option, but that the chances of finding a kidney for a child is rare, and that their better chance is radiation.

The same day, Jake Spencer is hit by a car and is left brain dead. Carly goes to his biological father and her best friend, Jason Morgan, and begs for Jake's kidney to save Josslyn's life. Jason talks to Jake's legal father Lucky Spencer, who then talks to Jake's mother Elizabeth Webber about it. They agree to donate Jake's organs. Terrell performs the transplant and saves Josslyn's life.
