just now Dr. Jacobs is amazing! Appointments to see her are always a long wait but she is well worth it. She cares so much about her patients and I wouldnt want anyone else delivering my babies now that ive had her as a dr. There arent many doctors who care enough to go check on their patients agter giving birth in their days off. She is one in a million!

I really like Dr. Jacobs but how can they expect me to wait an hour to two hours at EVERY appointment?

Arlene has been my doctor for more years than I can count... through many changes in my life - including changing “in network” providers... I have continued to go to her for care and treatment. It’s worth the incremental extra to know that she takes care of me.

I have been seeing Dr. Jacobs since she went into practice. She is so caring and special. She will spend all the time you need with her. That unfortunately leads to long waits for appointment times, but I think it is worth it. She treats you as a whole person, not just for obgyn. Each visit eands with a sincere hug!

Dr. Jacobs is a wonderful doctor. She's patient, sweet and very informative. However, it's impossible to change an appointment to a new date since she's extremely busy. And the wait time is always over an hour ! My last visit was over two hours of waiting!!!

Tried scheduling an appointment and receptionist was extremely hesitant to schedule an appointment as I was a new patient. Basically the receptionist kept telling me the Dr. didn't like to see new patients and if I REALLY want to see her it would be many months out - 6 months out. For me 6 months out was fine as I was just trying to find a new OBGYN. I don't want to see a Dr. who would be annoyed by a new patient...

Dr. Jacobs is the best doctor you'll ever experience. She cares about her patients on a personal and professional level. Having moved out of Texas 2 yrs ago I still fly into Dallas just to see her, as I wouldn't trust my health care to anyone else. If I could I would give her a "million star" rating.

Dr Arlene Jacobs was my doctor throughout my pregnancy. This review is long due as my son is now 5 years old and we are in a different country. But I can never forget Dr Jacobs' warmth, sincerity and smile, which is contagious! She made my pregnancy look so easy and even during delivery, she was a constant support. A big thank you to! I wish I could see you again and introduce you to my son :)

Dr. Jacobs is truly a blessing from God. I was so fortunate to even have her accept new patients, let alone meet her as not only my physician, but also a mentor, friend, and second mom. My husband and I are experiencing some major complications with our pregnancy and I cannot begin to fathom how we would be standing strong with her by our side. We are forever blessed and indebted to Dr. Jacobs for all her love, compassion and love for her work.

I have recommended her to many people. I have seen Dr. Jacobs for over 25 years. She delivered two of my babies. I trust her more than any other doctor that I have ever had. Be aware, there can be long wait times while she delivers babies and gets off schedule. Just plan an know you will have to wait. She is totally worth it. She really cares about her patients, and gets womens' issues. I just love her!
