Dr Jacobsen has been caring for myself, husband, children and father for over ten years. Her quality of care and knowledge is EXCELLENT. She detected cancerous spots on my father more then once and successfully removed them. Her bed side manner is always good.

I think the staff at Skin MD are terrific -- they've taken care of my whole family for years, both with minor issues and ongoing ones. My teenagers especially like Dr. Jacobson's demeanor and I always appreciate that she helps us find alternatives for pricier prescriptions. I can be an alarmist and she is very pragmatic and conservative in her approach.

Worst cosmetic dermatologist visit ever. Dr. Jacobson is very nice but she doesn't know anything about cosmetics. Her recent advertisement makes it sound like she is a pro, but I was disappointed that I knew more than she did.
