I've seen Dr. Jacobson twice for earwax blockage and hearing loss. He has been thorough and conscientious, gently removing the blockage and testing my hearing. I have recommended him to friends.

I took my daughter in to see Dr. Jacobson today and we arrived in good spirits. However, after waiting 50 minutes in the lobby to be seen, and then having Dr. Jacobson spend less than 5 minutes total with us, we left pretty disappointed. We had driven nearly an hour each way to get there. I definitely felt rushed, left with unanswered questions, and felt in general like he wasn't really present. Maybe it's because his schedule was backed up, but I can't say I would recommend.
