My wife saw Dr Jacob. I was able to go with her for her appointment. I found him to be distracted, not interested in what my wife had to say, told her to go home and take an over-the-counter medication two or three times a day to stop her diarrhea. Her diarrhea had been almost daily for over a year at that time. I am sorry I cannot recommend a doctor who cares so little for his patients.

I would recommend Dr. Jacob to anyone looking for a good GI doctor who listens, and seems to genuinely care about his patients. Earlier this year my diverticulitis flared back up and I did not know it. It eventually perforated and landed me in the hospital preparing for surgery. I insisted that Dr Jacob be added as a consult to my case and he brought not only explanations, great advice and guidance, but I feel that his involvement actually saved me from having a permanent colostomy bag.

He seemed uninterested in my concerns since I was only 30 years old. He suggested I just quit my long term antidepressants for a couple weeks and see if my stomach get better. This was after my 3 hour wait past my appointment time. Will NEVER suggest him to any of my patients at work.

I did not have a good experience with Dr. Jacob. I saw him twice, for issues that continued after having my gallbladder removed. I was very sick, and he kept saying over and over that I was probably pregnant because of my constant nausea and inability to keep down food. When I told him that was not that case, he argued with me until we did a pregnancy test. He did a scope and prescribed acid reducers. That was it. My PCP has done a better job helping me with my stomach issues.

All indications are his knowledge & skills are good, but his professional ethics and preparation (eg. medical hx/chart review, memory in general) in dealing with patients are sub-par. A patient can reasonably expect that a MD who requests his patient make a post-procedure follow-up appt might show that he has a clue about said pt at said appt. And stop pushing pts to see a surgeon they don't want to see.

Dr. Jacob did NOT have a judging attitude like I have found with other doctors. He listened to what I had to say and then made sure I understood everything I needed to do. He explained everything he would need to do and asked if I had any questions then he answered them without making me feel silly for asking them. He was professional and kind.

He's very thorough when explaining something to make sure a patient understands what he is saying. He is very nice.
