Very knowledgeable and professional. I had minor neck surgery to remove a small mass. Dr. Jacobson did an outstanding job, very small scare. Office waits are very long and the Doctor did not appear to remember me when I went to my follow up visit. I would highly recommend him!

I will definitely recommend Dr. Adam Jacobson to friends and family. I am so happy that he was my surgeon.
