Dr Jacoby himself was nice, the one time I met him, but his nurse is rude, lies, and could care less about Dr Jacoby's patients. She is out of control and it is not worth it to go there and put up with this kind of behavior.

the first time I met with Dr. Jacoby I left the office crying feeling like I was crazy or stupid or both. He even kind of laughed as he was telling me oh those symptoms could be lots of things and not even related to each other. after dealing with new symptoms, I went back against my better judgement and things were a little better.

I had very good results with the office staff,,polite and friendly,,,nursing staff was very helpful with assisting with my needs,Doctor Jacoby was very polite and told me what was going on with my medical illness so I could understand them,The only thing i think the office could do is have a sitting chair in the line where you wait to be called up to talk to the office staff,for those that cant stand long that would be very helpful,
Horrible, I went to Ruan for and appt and arrived on time, I had to wait inline so was checked in about 9 minutes past my appt. I waited in the lobby for 20 minutes then the front desk staff notified me that Dr.Jacoby wouldn't see me and I would have to schedule another appt because I wasn't there 30 minutes prior to my appt time to fill out paper work. When I scheduled my appt they never told me to arrive early, otherwise I would have. Not easy to do working 8-5 m-f, will never go back

Short, dismissive, amost angry. Couldnt look me in the eye. Rude, arrogant, impatient. Cut me off when asking questions. Treated me like I was stupid and was wasting my time. Quiet certainly the worst experience I've ever had at a doctor's office.
