Dr. Jacoby has a "masks optional" policy which flouts CDC medical guidelines. Most of his patients and staff (including Jacoby himself) are unmasked, thus presenting a threat to all concerned.

Atlanta's top doctor for a reason. His compassion towards his patients is obvious. With his help I have regained my life. I am more active and take almost no pain medication.
