I've been working through some painful issues with my Psoriactic Arthritis and I am fortunate that Dr. Jacob has been treating me. He is thoughtful and has taken the time to figure out whats has been wrong. He created a game plan that we both followed and I'm finally getting to the point to put the issue behind me. He was more than accommodating and made his time very available which is almost unheard in today.

Dr. takes the time to listen to any concerns one may have. Explains in plain English what is going on with you and why so that you understand you don't leave the office wondering what he just said or meant. The most important thing to me is that he is very understanding and has always made himself available if I needed help especially when I was first told that I had a severe case of Lupus.

Dr. Jacob's office is very nice and the office staff are friendly. Dr. Jacob is professional and was competent but didn't do much above what was expected, although granted, my condition is minor. However, I didn't feel like he took me seriously when I described symptoms, and forged ahead with recommendations based on test results instead of listening to me. Also, it was somewhat difficult for me to understand his speech, probably due to a mix of his accent and my own hearing problems.
