Patient Comments (5)
in Bethesda, MD |
Dr. Jacobson is a very caring and highly skilled neurosurgeon. He thoughtfully and honestly answered my many questions before and after surgery. His extensive experience and brilliant surgical skills were particularly obvious the evening of my procedure, when I awoke with none of the potential side effects (of which I was at high risk of having due to the multiple issues that needed to be corrected in my cervical spine). I have recovered very well and very quickly. Highly recommended!

Be aware: Dr. Jacobson's office is likely to mess up the scheduling of your appointment. I have had numerous and time-consuming conversations with Vida Rosner in his office and she never gets the appointments right.

Dr. Jacobson is a very experienced and caring physician. He listens very attentively, did a thorugh examinaton, asks for MRI to support his finding, discusses all options, and gaves one a chance to try the less invasive options and finally, if required, performs the minimal surgery to correct the problem.

He is one of the best Dr.s in the area for spinal surgical treatment. His is very honest and talented. I got butchered by a top Dr. in the area...head of the Bla, bla, bla.. Then after a needless surgery, sent me a bill for $15,000! Jacobson did minor arthroscopic surgery and cured me. Also, he didn't charge anything over insurance...$5,900. Very sweet, kind, professional.

After my surgery was pain free, Dr. Jacobson did an outstanding job
