I had a complicated tumor that Dr Jacobson surgically removed. I am a 6 year survivor and would not have trusted my case to anyone else.

Dr. Jacobson saved my life by performing an Ileostomy in Feb 2017. His personal attention to help me through the surgery and beyond were incredible. He even provided a cell number to contact him if I had problems (like a skin infection around my stoma and when I developed a hernia). He is an incredible doctor and a wonderful human being. Thank you, Steve Youtz

After so many home remedies,treatments, suppositories, medications from other doctors none were able to treat or determine my problem. I'm glad I scheduled with Dr.Robinson he truly is knowledgeable and I went to him for a second opinion as I was scheduled to have surgery by another doctor, but I was advised not to and I'm glad he saw me and determined I had an infection and there was no need for surgery. I would have been over it glad I seen this doctor he's straightforward and professional.

Dr Jacobson is a very caring and patient doctor. He has done a colonoscopy on me two times and also treated my diverticulitis. He took excellent care of me while I was in the hospital. He was thorough and knows what is the best treatment options for you. He reviewed my history and asked questions so he knew the best care for me. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs this type of doctor.
