I went to Dr. Edwin Jacobs back in 2008. I was referred by my primary physician. I had Breast Cancer. Dr. Jacobs is a caring, knowledgeable and experienced doctor. Because of his excellent care and treatment I am cancer free. He was very thorough and I had every available test that was needed before treatment. It has been 11 years. I thank God for him and that I am cancer free.

Appreciate the reviews and during chemo it is important that you feel comfortable and have at least a benefit of being able to relax. This is a trying time. No need to come in and feel cramped, uncomfortable, seats that do not work etc.. It is stressful enough. I was looking for a new doctor but will not come here.

The chemo area is extremely cramped and depressing. Lounge chairs are aging and uncomfortable. You can't lean your chair back during treatment without a nurse bumping into you. There is only two pumps available and the nurses pushes In the treatments by hand. It's very scary. Also, I'm confused why they can't move the Chemo Treatment area where the large front window is (appointment desk) It has beautiful views of the mountains. It's larger and patients can enjoy the view. Feeling scared here.
