Dr Jacobs is an outstanding doctor and surgeon. Very empathetic, takes time to answer every question, and is excellent at follow up. Very experienced, gives the patient a lot of confidence, and a wonderful listener. I would recommend him highly, and he is very well assisted by Kathy, who is just terrific.

My surgery went off without a hitch. My recovery was very easy as Dr. Jacobs said it would be. Many others made me nervous but I was confident in Dr. Jacobs abilities. I would recommend him to anyone having the same surgery as I had.

I have suffered with breathing issues my whole life and I had an unsuccessful surgery when I was a teenager in Brazil. I waited for so long! Dr. Jacobs is a gem, honestly, he's so knowledgeable, and he is so polite, listens to you with such respect and attention, and I felt like a Dr was finally taking my problems serious. Once he figure out my problem, he moved on so quickly to schedule my procedure, which involved a deviated septum, chronic and recurrent sinus infection and issues with blockage inside my nose. The procedure was extremely smooth, unreal. The follow-up was incredible. And one more thing, his assistant Kathy, she deserves as much love and praise. She's sweet, super on top of her messages, she made me feel really comfortable. They are a great team, and not only I'll recommend him to everyone, I'm actually taking my daughter to see him in 2 weeks. Thank you Dr Jacobs for letting me breath for the first time like a normal human being.

Being treated by Dr. Jacobs is different from my previous experiences elsewhere. All of my questions and concerns about my symptoms are listened to and validated and I feel like I am in good hands. His assistant Kathy is also amazing. From scheduling appointments, surgery and following up on insurance and prescriptions, she has been on top of everything and the process has been seamless. I am still recovering from my sinus surgery, but so far I am healing well and I'm very grateful to have been treated with the upmost professionalism and care.

I have. I mean HAD a very rare condition called silent sinus syndrome. Dr. Jacobs along with an Opthamologist corrected my condition. My breathing is incredibly better. I felt so unbalanced and frustrated due to poor breathing on my right side. Dr. Jacobs is very knowledgeable and confident. I can’t thank Dr. Jacobs and his team enough. Scheduling appointments is always easy. Kathy at the front desk is lovely and very helpful as well.

The overall experience was great. The office is clean and organized. Kathryn is very helpful and nice. Doctor Joseph Jacobs made me feel comfortable and assured me that I was in good hands. I had a sinus surgery and I was worried about the procedure. The surgery went well. Immediately I asked for a mirror. My nose didn't change. No purplishes or scars. The infection was removed and I can breath better. An anti inflammatory was prescribed after the surgery, but never even needed. He is a knowledgeable doctor. I wish he was more friendly. I highly recommend him for a sinus surgery.
