I am a nurse case manager and I have had a few patients that have treated with Dr. Jacobson and they have had very positive results. Dr. Jacobson is always extremely courteous and explains conditions and his recommended treatment plans in great detail. I would recommend Dr. Jacobson to my family, friends, and my patients.

We have had the unfortunate but wonder experience of being treated by Dr Jacobson at Hughston, twice in the last 15 months for fractured bones. I only say unfortunate because who wants to bring their kid to a doctor for a broken bone? His staff, the PT Department and the receptionists are all wonderful. As for treatment I am very satisfied, one injury was severe and yet through proper care, advice, treatments and follow ons it went perfect. The other facture was more routine. Thank You!!!

I had my ACL replaced in my right knee at the young age of 53 after a training accident with my Fire Department. Couldn't have gone any better. Dr. Jacobson was outstanding and a genuinely nice guy. Kudos to his staff as well. Never waited very long like some others suggest. Highly recommend to everyone.

Dr. Jacobson cares about you as a person and never fails to put me at ease whenever I've been examined or had surgery.
