What People Say About Dr. Howard Jacobs, MD
Reply
I was unlucky enough not to get far enough to see Dr Jacobs, needing an appointment fairly quickly as I was just discharged from hospital and feeling unwell and nervous about my condition, I found his staff to be unfriendly and totally unhelpful, especially Mercy, who was nothing more than insulting and hurtful, I hope none of them are ever in the unfortunate situation I am at this time and if they are they are treated better than I was

I had nearly been a patient of Dr Jacobs for 30 yrs. As The years have gone by he became less and less compassionate and caring. His ability to stay abreast of the latest medical advancements seemed to falter. The last time I was hospitalzed he refused to do a consultation preferring inadequate PA's to treat my severe asthmatic condition. In other words he has gotten too big for his britches! A word of advice stay away from this inadequate physcian.
