Love Dr.Jacobs! He was amazing with my 2.5yr old and was super realistic about treatments for his chronic ear infections. Not a long wait time at all and everyone was super friendly and made my son feel comfortable. Would most definitely recommend physician/office!

I don’t particularly enjoy having ear wax removal done; however with Dr Jacobs it’s almost painless. He is gentle, compassionate and really just the very BEST. I highly recommend him and have done so.

We have been patients of Dr. Jacobs for several years and have always received the most professional treatment with all office personnel, from the front desk to our dismissal. However, as we are aging our medical needs have increased as well as the information & attention we now need. During our last visit, we saw both Dr. Jacobs, whom we hold in high regard, as well as P.A. Kimberly Brown & Audiologist, Cindy, all were very informative, caring Professionals. Really a stellar visit!

I will never bring my young son back to this practice. My son was scared to have his ears cleaned, which I explained up front. He was rude and condescending to my son and seemed like he was a in a big rush to get out of there. Awful experience - do not recommend him in any way.

I would not recommend. Dr ordered tests for you child that were not explained to me in office, one included anesthesia!!! Called for questions and staff and dr. Barry were rude. He acted as if he was bothered to call back. The procedure with anesthesia was not even needed, and would have exposed child to unnecessary risks. After I took child to mass eye and ear, everything was straightened out. Also got billed cancellation fee for followup even though called to cancel.

I have been a patient of Dr. Jacobs for 25 years. No matter how busy he was I have always found him to be patient and willing to listen as well as kind and compassionate. Over the years I have had a few issues and Dr. Jacobs was able to put my mind at rest as he explained exactly what was going on and what needed to be done. I have recommended him to many people and all were happy with the care they received. Although the waiting time can be awhile, Dr. Jacobs is definitely worth the wait.

Dr Jacobs injected Botox into my vocal cords for a condition I have. Once I went home the evening of the operation I had to go to the emergency room for trouble breathing and had respitory failure. Lucky to be a live thankfully to the doctors in the emergency room. Be careful with Dr Jacobs
