Rochelle, IL |
Extremely happy with the way Dr. Jacobs El listened and explained everything around our situation which is rare in today's medical world. I found him to be extremely professional and understanding. I would very much recommend Dr. Jacobs El for Orthopedics.

Well where do I begin. I will put it simple, he almost killed my husband. Him and his staff refused to listen to what we were tell them and my husband ended up in the hospital for 5 days with blood clots that traveled through his heart and in to his lungs. Dr. Jacobs-El never called nor came to see him in the hospital. This could have all been prevented had his ignorance not gotten in the way. I almost lost my husband and my best friend because of him. Do not go see him.

Likes to play God. Huge Ego but he talent does not match. Took 3 yrs for knee replacement to stop to stop hurting . Still can't go for a nice long walk without pain. I would Never tell anyone to go to him. He is rude, arrogant n not a good surgeon .
