in Nottingham, MD |
I would and have recommended Dr. Jacob's to several friends. I'm 59 yrs. old and seen my share of Drs. over the yrs.. Driving an 18 wheeler for over 30 yrs. I've never came upon a Dr. that actually cares for his patients. A lot of Drs. put on a good act like they care but you can see this man cares. He takes time to listen to what is bothering you. If you have something bothering you he and his staff will see you A.S.A.P. if possible. I personally have Lupus bad and he is always there for me!!

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.
in Deale, MD |
Dr. Jacob is very professional and extremely knowledgeable. He gave me his full attention while listening to my questions and answered all of concerns very carefully and intelligently. he gave me great medical advice and suggestions. He is an extremely compassionate and honest doctor - the very best doctor I have ever been to.
