I just saw someone say dr. Jacobs was arrogant. Amazing, I found this guy to be one of kindest and sensitive doctors I'd ever met. I recommend him.

I had acid reflex really bad for 8 years and my throat was always sore.I did not know what my problem was until I saw Dr.Jacobs recommended by my primary physician.He told me he would do whatever he could to help me stop sucking on caugh drops day and night for 5 years for my sore throat.After 3 visits I have not had a cough drop in more than 60 days.Thank You Dr.Jacobs for giving me my life back and I am not on any medication.

He is arrogant and doesn't listen. If you have a problem that is complicated, he won't waste his time thinking about it. Definitely NOT a diagnostician.
