Wow, finally a doctor that has all the answers to your questions and can back them up with research and years of experience in his field of study. Dr. Jacome was able to give an overview of his services and the importance of each in a manner it was very easy to understand. After hearing all the pertinent information associated with my per surgery status, I actually felt like for the first time in many years wanting to take care of myself and doing the what I needed to do to be healthy again. Walking to my car I felt better just knowing what was ahead of me. I know I am in great hands and look forward to the day my life restarts!

Dr. Jacome performed robotic hernia repair on me in March 2019. I walked out of the hospital on my own and recovery was uneventful. I highly recommend him for his skill, enthusiasm, and energy that he brings to the operating room. He is very encouraging and personable.

Dr jacome is an excellent surgeon. He answers all your questions and care about your well-being. I'll prefer any of my friends and family to him. Excellent bed side manners. He performed my gallbladder and hernia surgery and I'm great. I have to follow up with him about some issues I'm having but I'm sure he'll take care of me. Great job Dr jacome!!! Keep up the good work!!!

Very pleased with him. He knew it was my gall bladder right away. I was not put off like the gastroenterologist did to me. Dr. Jacome listened to me and moved right away to solve the problem. I went for months with bad pain and no one would help me, or listen to me. I was at my wits end. Dr. Jacome scheduled the surgery and performed the operation as soon as possible and I had some follow up visits too. I am 100% back to normal now, after 2 months!. He saved my life.
