I've been to MANY doctors over the past 48 years, but never had an experience like this one. My long time doctor of 15 years dropped the health insurance plan I have, so I needed to find another doctor to perform a yearly wellness exam with all preventative blood work & EKG. Upon meeting him, he seemed pleasant, but that changed very fast. This doctor is the most arrogant, pompous, & condescending person I've encountered. I brought the preventative blood work results from the previous year to show what I normally have done, and it's the same preventative blood work that I've had performed for years by 2 doctors. The doctor looked at the previous test results and said, "I'll decide what tests you'll get". I brought up important preventative tests he was going to ignore for a guy my age, & was told, "How about I request a mammogram". A real wise @ss. Inferred that my long time doctor was a bad doctor for ordering the tests, & mouthed off that he was a physician(knows best) & I'm not.

One of the worst medical experiences I have ever had anywhere in the United States and I am 66 years old. Almost caused me a medical emergency because of his lack of care and his completely disorganized office. If you care about your health, stay away from this charlatan

I have been his patient for over 5 years he is easy to talk to, funny, and reviews the chart carefully and discusses his concerns and ways to change to make me as healthy as possible. He orders test applicable to my needs. Overall good doctor.

I have been a patient of Dr. Jacob for over 15 years. From my very first experience, I encountered a genuine, concerned doctor. I actually had a doctor sit down with me for 45 minutes, go over every aspect of my health, and truly listen. When I commented on this, and I’ll never forget, he told me that he sees his patients as patients for life. At the time I thought that all doctors just rushed you through and wrote you a prescription without fully understanding any underlying issues. In fact, he told me to carry a list of my medications from all doctors in my wallet. This was certainly not the case! Since I’ve been seeing Dr. Jacob, his sincerity has never changed. I am convinced he is a great doctor and have referred him to well over a dozen satisfied friends & family.

Wish I could give a ZERO star! DrJ is my dad's Dr & I can't believe anyone would see this dr. My father got the flu & went in to get checked. Dr J listened to my dad list his symptoms & said "I will prescribe a z-pack" & goes to leave. My father said "wait where are you going" He said he's leaving. My father said "Aren't you going to listen to my chest?". He said not to tell him how to practice medicine & slammed the door. My father WONT be going back!! Wish I read all these bad reviews before!

Randi Goldman in CA – Jan 15, 2018
Marty as he likes to be called is the the worst and probably the most dishonest doctor I have ever visited. He never ever put a hand on me and sat and worked at his computer and talked to his phone. when i asked him questions he really told me to shut up and that I talked too much. The dishonesty comes from my annual wellness exam for Medicare. one year he handed me a stack of papers to fill out and walked out, he said sign it and that was that, this time he did not do the exam and billed,

I GET APPOINTMENTS PRETTY EASILY. DR J HAS NEVER TOUCHED ME AT ANY VISIT IN 4 YEARS, RELYING TOTALLY, COMPLETELY ON TESTS/LAB RESULTS. NO HANDS - ON, EVER, IS VERY STRANGE . GETTING RX PROMPTLY HAS BEEN OK; OCCASIONALLY THERE'S A GLITCH, BUT LESS THAN AT OTHER PRACTICES I'VE USED OVER MY RETIRED YEARS. OUTWARDLY FRIENDLY, BUT VERY SARCASTIC, A FAST TALKER. WE CALL HIM SNARKY! HE NO LONGER HAS ANY HOSPITAL AFFILIATIONS. I AM CHANGING PRACTICES LATER THIS YEAR.

Horrible staff, couldn't even notify me that office had moved from Bethesda West Office Bldg. Dr. always seems in a hurry, loves to look at and talk to his computer. Had my appointment for 4th appointment, office had moved and was never notified, by the time I got to his other office, staff were having a good laugh and wanted to see my appointment card, which I had. Getting a prescription from him was troubling and all the work done by the drug store. Already found a new PCP.

I had one visit with Jacobs, and will not return. I felt like he was very interested in my total health, but really not so concerned with my specific health concerns. I was taken off a medication that has ultimately made me worse off than I was before I went in to see him. However, his assistant is the reason I will not be returning to his office. She was rude to the point of being obnoxious.
