What People Say About Dr. Christine Jacobs, MD
Reply
I think Dr. Jacobs is a very caring Doctor, and spends a good amount of time with me. I have a variety of health issues, and she does her best to address them all. She will usually focus on what I am coming in for, but she touches on any other concerns I may have. She is the best PCP I have EVER had, and I hope she will continue to be my Doctor for as long as possible. I think I would still go to see her even if she had Dementia or some other health issue(s): Within reason, of course. :)
