What People Say About Dr. R Jacob, MD
Reply
Had lumbar surgery performed by Dr. Jacob in 2012.Have had disabling symptoms since, which I did not have before surgery.After surgery, tried to communicate with neurosurgery dept. and Dr. Jacob. After several MRIs, I was passed off to pain management dept, who after several spinal injections were able to collect insurance payments, but provided no benefit to me.I would strongly advise anyone needing spinal surgery to pass on these people and seek help elsewhere. Good luck and beware! Likelihoo
