Patient Comments (13)
Newburgh, NY |
I was first introduced to Dr. Jacobowitz for a sleep study. After having difficulty using a CPAP machine, Dr. Jacobowitz recommended I repair my badly obstructed nose. I am now able to sleep thru the night, feeling well rested in the morning. I am also able to breath thru my nose, which is far more comfortable than mouth breathing. I no longer wake with a dry, scratching throat. I am also now able to relax myself breathing thru my nose. Doc, thank you for changing my life.
New York, NY |
I had a great experience here - very clean office, great staff, dr spent plenty of time with me going over my questions and the questionnaire I filled out. Front desk staff was fantastic, helpful, and friendly; which I feel is rare these days. Their patient portal is helpful and easy to navigate. I feel confident moving forward that we will figure out my problems and that this Dr knows what he's doing.

Great visit. I was greeted by friendly staff. Fitz working at the desk was very helpful guiding me through sign in process. Dr. Jacobowitz is a good listener and took time to evaluate my condition before rushing to any decisions. I was very satisfied with my experience.
Dr Jacobowitz, I will say, seems like a good dr for the short time I met with him. His office in Middletown, on the other hand, wasted my time. I live an hour away from the office and I value my time highly. Of the 4 trips I made to his office, 3 of those trips were a complete waste of time and money. A total of 6hours of wasted time, driving, and wear on my vehicle. If it wasn't the watchpat not being ready, it was the watchpat not working. The office staff needs to get it together. Not pleased

in Goshen, NY |
Dr. Jacobowitz is knowledgeable, friendly and sensitive. He explained, in layman terms, the nature of my nasal polyps. He outlined coherently the process from X-Rays through surgery. His staff members were polite and helpful. The sinus surgery went well. Pre-surgery, Dr. Jacobowitz met with me and explained what he was going to do, the timeframe for the surgery and the anticipated results. All went as he indicated; I breathe much better; I am grateful for his skill and professionalism.
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.
