    I was a nervous wreck going into my surgery this week, but Dr. Jacoby spent as much time as I needed to explain the whole process. He came in several times beforehand to ease my mind. He even went as far as bringing up Google images to explain all the doctor terminology. Surgery went great and I feel like a brand new woman minus the painful tumor. Thank you, Dr. Jacoby! He acts fast and aggressively because he's very skilled as a surgeon.

    This visit was one of the finest experiences I have ever had to any medical facility! The Nurse took me in to an exam room and listened to my health problems and then contacted the Doctor and sent him pictures of my condition. The Doctor responded and gave the nurse instructions to relay to me, all of this service was rendered on a walk in basis with no appointment! The Doctor then saw me on his first appointment the very next day! My health problem was a rather serious one and was well handled
