Care Philosophy

Health Care in general and chronic pain management in particular is a shared responsibility. In that context the doctor-patient relationship is a partnership. I believe that working together is the best way I can practice good pain medicine and help my patients to help themselves maintain / regain a good life. My primary role as your pain management physician is to give you my best advice in order to help you make well-informed decisions regarding your pain management. I enjoy developing relationships with patients over time.

in Snohomish, WA |
I've had chronic pain for years and tried several treatments along with medication, some successful, others not. I was brought into a room by a medical assistant who took my vital signs, then another room to wait for the doctor. He came, led me to another room and preceded to ask me many questions about my history, gave me a long lecture, handouts to take home. I asked him what the plan would be, meditation. No exam. Essentially embrace the pain. Pain doesn't mean harm. Don't come here.

I have dealt with pain of one type or another for years and recently due to some stenosis in my neck I was referred to Dr Jacobson to discuss steroidal injections. The nurse took my bp then had me sit in a chair in front of the Dr's computer. After an hour of questions about my life and No examination, he proceeded to give me hand outs for books and videos to learn how to meditate through the pain. And breathe to work through pain to distract me. If you want help, don't bother to see him.
