×Post a ResponseAre you Dr. Douglas Jacobson, MD?
I had an inflammation problem with my left eye on a Saturday, called and left a message on what I think was his personal cell phone, and he called me back the same day. He gave me some tips on reducing the discomfort I was experiencing and squeezed me in to be seen and treated 1st thing Monday morning. I'm impressed!
