Horrible doctor with no bedside manner and condescending attitude. Didn’t listen at all. Only interested in prescribing meds. Would rate zero stars if I could.

I have been a patient of Dr Jacowitz since 2014. He saved my life, as I was facing an imminent fatal cardiac emergency. His patient care manner and professionalism are truly what should be expected of a physician.

The nurse was very supportive of my wellbeing as she stuck my right index finger to draw a droplet of blood,which did not hurt at all. My consultation with Dr. Jackowitz was informative and we made arrangements for my next visit in late September. Antoinette,Desk consultant,helped me as I made an appointment. This medical practice comes highly recommended by me.

The worst doctors visit I ever had. There was no examination and told me to continue doing what I was doing. That didn't work. I decided to see another Cardiologist who changed my regiment of medications and was able to see a big change and ultimately fixed my problem within days. I came away from Dr. Jacowitz office visit that he really had no interest in treating me. Arrogant and no compassion or bedside manner at all. He seemed annoyed that I was asking too many questions. I would never recommend Dr. Jacowitz. I think he needs to retire.

Prompt care. Very short wait time. Felt he understood my health issue. I'm a first time client and new to NJ. Not the best time to change doctors and states - during a pandemic. I am totally satisfied and grateful for the care. Office staff is so empathetic. 5 stars all around.

I picked one star because zero was not an option. I joined my mother for an appointment where she needed to understand why she needed a pace maker. He was short, rude, didn’t take the time or care to help her understand her condition. He was annoyed with questions. I would not recommend him.

I'm a 40-something year-old man with two young children. I literally owe my life to Dr. Jacowitz. I had two very large aortic aneurysms that Rd. Jacowitz discovered before they ruptured. If it wasn't for him I probably would not be here today.

Wow. Thank goodness the test I took today showed I did not need a cardiologist, but if I did at least I would know who NOT to choose. His arrogance and lack of bedside manner even had his nurse rolling her eyes. When he told ME to tell my internist that she was wasting time and money with the tests she was ordering, even the nurse said to him 'Why don't you do it?' He stated it wasn't worth the call. Time to retire and do something you enjoy, Doc, cause it sure isn't this anymore...
