Dr. Jacobs was recommended by my OBGYN I have Fibroids and needed to have them removed. His bed side manner is TERRIBLE, he laughed when telling him about possible alternative treatments after surgery and kept pushing IVF. Every visit I left angry and frustrated. I would NEVER recommend him to anyone, and his staff, except for the office manager change every visit.

this guy is no good. he's not even a board certified fertility doctor. unnecessary surgery and practices medicine in an area that he's not even trained in. it'd be like going to cardiologist to get heart surgery. stay away.

Dr. Jacob bedside manners are the worst! Thank God I have a thick layer of skin. If you are considering going to him about endometriosis, DON'T! I have stage I endo and was on lupron that did not help my pain. Therefore, I went to him for a second opinion to see what I should do next. He told me at the age of 26 to just get pregnant now because my endo will get worst. He only discussed pregnancy treatments (I'm not infertile) instead of treating my endo. Go see Patrick Yeung - Endo specialist.

We went through a full IVF cycle. I produced a lot of eggs but not the best quality. On retrieval day, my body was weak, ovaries were HUGE, I was barely functioning. On implant day, I could barely walk into the office. He offered to wait but I wanted to implant. I should have never been allowed to make that decision. I almost died in the hospital a day later from severe OHSS. I had no idea how bad the situation really was until I recently started seeing a new physician.

Dr Saji and his staff were amazing! They show a genuine concern regarding their patients health. They make you feel like family the minute you walk into the office door. I suffered a few years with fibroids and endometriosis. Dr Saji performed my Robotic surgery on 11/08/16. I was discharged the next day without any pain or major scarring. I have 4 small incisions. It's only been 8 days since my surgery and I feel better than ever! On a scale of 1 to 5, I give you a 10!

If I could give Dr. Jacob 10 stars, I would. From my very first appointment I knew I was in good hands. Dr. Jacob was very candid and also encouraging. He helped my husband and I fulfill our dream to have a family. We now have a beautiful daughter. It was a long road but it was a great experience working with Dr. Jacob and his excellent staff.

Thanks to Dr. Jacob and his nurses at the time, we were blessed with our now 2 month old son. My husband and I are ready to try again. Unfortunately, the nurses who got us through such an emotional process are no longer there. Dr. Jacobs bedside manner can use some work, but the turnover rate is absurd. The office manager and new staff is unfriendly and incompetent. The environment there is no longer the same without Allie and Emma, we will not be returning.

I will never return to this office. Dr Jacobs bed side manner is the worst I have ever experienced in my life. Very negative demeanor. I have Never experienced such negativity with a doctor. I left feeling angry and defeated. I wouldn't recommend the doctor.
