    in Henderson, NV |
    I went to Dr. Scott with a long list of minor health complaints. After blood tests showed nothing, Dr. Scott encouraged me to try some dietary changes and supplements. He worked with me to tailor a plan that was right for me and educate me on some of the nuances about making better food choices, and how that can directly affect my overall sense of well-being. Weeks later, I have more energy, I've lost weight, and most of my complaints are gone or diminished. I'm grateful to have found him.

    Dr. Scott is a good listener. He takes time to really hear you and he really listens. He is great with figuring out alternative meds and is not afraid to suggest trying something different. He is also super good at returning phone calls!

    Dr. Jacobson is very welcoming and friendly as he truly takes the time to get to know his patients on a personal level. He dives deep into social/family history and gets to the root cause of problems with his functional medicine approach. Wait times are short and he spends plenty of time with patients during appointments.

    I really love this doctor. He spent a lot of time with me getting to know my symptoms, family history, etc and treated me like person rather than just treating my symptoms. I live his holistic approach to medicine. He gave me recommendations on nutrition, supplements, exercise, and stress management. I feel like he took the time to get to know me and that he really cares about his patients.
