Care Philosophy

While Dr. Jacobs employs all the latest high-tech cardiovascular tools at her disposal for the treatment of coronary disease, valvular disease, heart failure and other cardiovascular conditions, she knows that the active involvement of the patient in prevention is essential in order for them to enjoy the highest quality of life. She explains, I try to approach every patient individually as a partnership. He or she is not coming to me for pills, they are coming to me for advice. Dr. Jacobs is optimistic about advances in the prevention of cardiovascular disease, particularly coronary disease (blocked arteries) and promotes the importance of risk reduction in her practice. In the early stages of coronary disease and before any obvious symptoms,the risk for heart attack can be just as high as in the later stages that do produce symptoms. Dr. Jacobs believes that early detection and a regimen of lifestyle modification, medication and nutritional supplements can greatly reduce risk.Read more
