    Dr. Jacobson has been our son's pediatric neurologist for 15 years. He properly diagnosed our son's ADHD and provided a conservative approach to medication. Throughout this time, he has worked closely with our son to help him be successful through medication and advice, worked with school staff, and provided much needed recommendations. Highly recommend Dr. Jacobson due to his amazing grasp of neurological issues and excellent bed side manner. He truly loves what he does!

    Very thorough and took the time to gain an understanding of my child's diagnosis. Provided a plan and options to figure out where my child's neurological issues may lie, to then determine how to best treat my child's neurological symptoms.
