    DR. JACOBS RESPONDS - (Dr. Jacobs, edit your response)

    I am very pleased that you chose me to help you in your journey to become parents.  I have always tried to have a 'connection' and be very accessible in the office or by phone or email.  I have been blessed with the knowledge & skills to make a difference in people's lives. As you know, there are many patients, just like you, who struggle with the misery of infertility.  When patients are considering treatment, they often search the internet for a 'top doctor'.  I would really appreciate if at your convenience, you would please take just a few minutes to do this survey/review of my practice so your comments can be forwarded to some of the physician ratings websites. You can do the review using your name or initials or anonymously.  Thank you in advance for letting others know what your experience has been with me.  Your honesty and sincerity will help me provide the very best service to others just like you.  Please keep in touch.

    Thank you for your time and valuable feedback, we look forward to seeing you again.

    Sincerely,

    Laurence A. Jacobs,  M.D.
