Dr. Jacobson has been my doctor since 1989, at Weil Cornell Hospital. He has been the best doctor you can ever have. He is very understanding, he explains to you every detail of your condition so you can understand it. He makes sure that you are comfortable and listens to you. His medical knowledge is excellent and beth israel has been blessed with such a great doctor. He has made me feel better and i thank him so much and God bless him so much too. He is a doctor you can trust.
