After months of a deep cough, and seeing four other specialists and having x-rays and trying many different ideas of what this could be, I finally was sent to see Dr. Jacobs and he not only identified the cause of my cough on my first visit but he also prescribed the medicine which stopped the cough very quickly. Needless to say I really love Dr. Jacobs. I would highly recommend him to everyone.
Westfield, MA |
With his years of ENT experience, Dr. Jacobs was able to diagnosis, treat and manage my significant allergy and asthma issues in a very effective and empathetic way. Prior to treatment, he made calls to another specialist on my behalf to ensure that the recommended allergy treatment wouldn't negatively impact my other ongoing health issue and closely monitors the success of his treatment so that I may enjoy a higher quality of life.
Springfield, MA |
His staff is extremely rude, even when they are making sure they are collecting your copay!
in Springfield, MA |
He didn't seem to care about my needs as a patient and he was too rushed too listen to what I had to say. He came with high recommendations so we thought he would be great.
in Springfield, MA |
I went to Dr. Jacobs for a sore throat that would not go away in December 2012. Dr. Jacobs examined me and immediately knew I had throat cancer. He informed me of how soon he could do surgery and snapped into action getting my appointments set up with D'amour Cancer Center for all necessary chemo and radiation appointments. I have being seen him for follow up and I would not want to have to see any other dr. Dr. Jacobs you are the BEST!
Amherst, MA |
If needing a surgery for eartubes or tonsils I would definitley reccomend him, if for anything non-surgical I would not.
