Dr. Michael Jacobs has been my dermatologist for more then 25 years. Dr. Jacobs is an expert in the field of dermatology.and is an expert diagnostician. Dr. Jacobs is always spot on with diagnosing and treatments.. Dr. Jacobs is kind to his patients and has a gentle bedside demeanor. As a nurse myself I have worked with Dr. Jacobs at the bedside for many years and it was always a pleasure because I saw his patients receive the best care possible. Dr. Jacobs is a true professional.

I have been seeing Dr. Jacobs for a few months now and have come to the conclusion that he does not care and always seems to be in a rush when it comes to dealing with his patients. I am no longer going to be seeing him as I would like a doctor to have an interest in doing his job as a doctor.

Do not do business with this doctor! He is deceiving and so is his staff!!!

He is a kind gentleman who clearly loves his work.

Dr. Jacobs caught my melanoma in stage 1. It was a mole so small I never would have seen it. The doctor who excised the melanoma was so impressed that he was able to find it. I live half away across the country and still make it to NYC to see him annually. No one checks for cancer like he does. I tried dermatologists closer to home and they merely look me over, waiting for signs to be dangerously visible. I trust Dr. Jacobs with my life.

I have been a patient since 1992. At that time I had a severe reaction to medicine which resulted in manifestations on my body.Dr. Jacobs, provided me superb care going so far to call me to see how I was doing. Through all these years Dr. Jacobs has always been there for me and there is no one I would trust more. May I mention he has taken care of doctors and there families at Weill Cornell. What better recommendation is there. Dr, Jacobs is the best!!
