My husband was under Dr. Jacobs care while he was a patient at Shady Grove Hospital. He was an extremely complicated patient,with a multitude of medical problems. Dr. Jacobs was truly dedicated to the challenge that he presented. We would see her early in the morning and late and night, leading me to believe that she is a truly dedicated professional working far too many hours for her patients. She was upfront about his condition, but did everything she could to provide him excellent care.
