Could not be happier with Dr Manuel, his staff and the entire St Davids system. It's a well-oiled machine that is highly organized and professional from the initial appointment, surgery day, recovery and on through to follow ups. Couldn't be happier! Thank you Dr Manuel and staff

Doug Garner – Apr 28, 2021
He painted an extremely rosy picture of my expected condition immediately following knee replacement surgery. I was actually released from the hospital the same day as my surgery. I was in extreme pain shortly thereafter. My knee swelled to 4 times its normal size with very large blisters just bursting with pus. Nurses who came to the house to change the bandages were taken aback. The 5mg oxycodone pills were totally inadequate, so they increased the dose to 1 5mg pill plus a 5 mg ER pill—again totally inadequate. This was increased to first, 10 mg , and then 2 10 mg pills at a time. I was taking this dose every few hours—a dangerously high level. The doctor could not explain the huge blisters nor the pain. He guessed the cause was a wound vac, but this was removed after 2 days, while the blisters lasted for weeks. The ice packs provided needed to be balanced like a book on one’s head. They didn’t tell me about knee braces available with tubes connected to an ice box.

Dr. Manuel recently replaced my hip in a same-day procedure (due to the COVID-19 impacts on hospital bed capacity). I could not have been more pleased with him and his staff. While his resume is exceptional, he's even better in person. He is patient, upbeat, easy to talk to, practical, professional, and a perfectionist in all the right ways. He exceeded all my expectations, and I recommend him with no reservations at all.

Dr. Manuel did a partial knee replacement for me less than a year ago. Now, I need a hip replacement. I have confidence that Dr. Manuel will do as good of a job on my hip as he did with my knee. I highly recommend him.

Very skilled, honest and caring. My knees are worn out and bone on bone in places. Dr. Manuel thoroughly discussed the options to ease my knee pain without going straight to replacement. I fully trust his treatment recommendations and highly recommend him.

Dr. Manuel has replaced both of my knees and my experience has been exceptional. He is attentive and obviously competent. Dr. Manuel and Allison are no-nonsense yet very caring. I am 6 months out on the first knee and 3 months out on the second and the results are incredible. Thank you Dr. Manuel and to all the staff!

I've been seeing Dr. Manuel and the physician assistant, Alison, for 6 years to get shots in my knee. They both are caring, highly professional, and ready to answer questions. Two months ago, Dr. Manuel performed a partial knee replacement on me. He did an excellent job and I'm very happy with my results. In addition to his high level of professionalism, Dr. Manuel is very friendly and a good listener. I highly recommend the practice for anyone with hip or knee issues. Dr. Manuel has also performed knee and hip replacements on my husband with excellent results.

Alta Faries – Mar 08, 2020
So far so good! Dr. Manuel was patient in answering all my questions. I'm not new to knee surgery, but am new to this complication. I consider myself just knowledgable enough to be dangerous. I also make jokes when I get nervous. Dr. Manuel and his staff handled all this so with humor, and answered all questions patiently. A week before I had been with a doctor who got up without asking if I had any other questions. I had felt rushed, and uncared for. For a partial knee replacement, which is a big decision in my book, I I wanted someone who takes me needs seriously. Dr. Manuel and his staff were fantastic and also come highly recommended by friends and professionals. Surgery is this upcoming week, and I know I will be taken care of well.

The reason I chose Dr Manuel jacob for my surgery was for his 20 years of experience. By referrals from some friends but especially from my family doctor. I would recommend anybody that's looking for a knee replacement to chose Dr Manuel Jacob and you would thank me later.

I highly recommend Dr. Manual and his staff. I have been a patient for the past two years for evaluation of knee problems. Dr. Manual’s manner is not only professional but also very personable. Although I have not required surgery at this time, I would not hesitate to have Dr. Manual do so if needed.
