Dr. Jacobs really cares about his patients. He is cautious, thorough, empathetic, and really goes the extra mile. He is a rarity these days where most other doctors rush from patient to patient.

I was having issues and Dr. Jacbobs was very calm and didn’t alarm me. He said many women were having issues right now because of stress levels. He had me come in several times of the past couple of months until my issue was resolved. He was always reassuring and would answer any questions I had or my husband would ask.

Highly recommend Dr. Jacobs. I have been seeing him since I moved here 8 years ago. He is thorough and explains issues well. He has the best bed-side manner of any Doctor I have experienced. He seems sincerely interested in his patients overall well being. Very happy I found him as my OB-GYN.

Dr. Jacobs is an excellent physician. He makes every patient feel like they are his favorite patient. His bedside manner is extraordinary. He takes your concerns seriously and ensures you that no matter the issue you may be experiencing he is committed to finding the best solution. He's delivered my baby and recently delivered the baby of one of my closest friends. We both had the same thought after our final follow-up visit, "I'm really going to miss seeing this guy all the time."

He is by far the best doctor I've been to. He actually cares about you and your well being and makes you feel right at home. It felt like I was hanging out with an old friend as opposed to an OB-GYN. As strange as it may sound, I can't wait to go back!

Dr Jacobs has provided expert care through my 2 pregnancies and ongoing women's health concerns as I get older. He provides a wealth of information and is empathetic to patient needs. He has made it easy to address issues beyond pregnancy and childbirth which I find invaluable. Despite his busy practice he is generous with his appointment times, calls to communicate test results/discuss treatment, and has helped me maintain and regain my health over the years.
