Dr. Jacobowitz Says:

I wish to thank all my wonderful patients for your reviews of my practice!

Bronx, NY |
I felt rushed during my appointment. Also I found the administrative staff disorganized, lax on follow-up calls and the assistant very rude. I also felt that the doctor demonstrated very little concern for the manner in which patients are treated by his staff. I would not recommend him based on my office experience. Instead I would suggest another doctor who works for a smaller and better organized team.
in Sussex, NJ |
Dr. Jacobowitz is the real deal. He has the knowledge, skills and bedside manner of a true professional.
in Garrison, NY |
Dr. Jacobowitz is a truly exceptional doctor, surgeon, and human being. He is the epitome of what anyone would want in a doctor: A professional with comprehensive knowledge, diagnostic perspicacity and acumen, and superlative surgical skill who listens attentively with kind, caring concern for the patient. The surgery I had resulted in a phenomenal improvement in my condition.
in Chester, NY |
Dr. Jacobowitz had diagnosed me with a condition that at least three other ENT specialists had missed. After diagnosing me he then was able to perform a surgical procedure and I am happily now symptom free. He has a very good physician to patient rapport and takes the time to make sure that the patient understands all treatment modalities completely. I have been a patient of Dr. Jacobowitz for over three years now and have never had a bad experience.
