Dr.Jacobs and Nelly his PA are wonderful! In December when I first came in after an auto accident I was in a ton of pain. I had surgery on my neck in January. I was pain free almost immediately after! I also had to have surgery on my back. It was done 2 weeks ago and the numbing down my leg and pain are gone. No joke his hands are magic! The best thing I ever did!

In all my experiences with many different practices they were unable to detect the issues related to my neck pain. After 2 years of suffering Dr. Jacobs performed the surgery to remove the herniated disc in my neck and now I feel amazing. I am so grateful. He was a real lifesaver for me!! I am 50 but I feel like 20!

I am extremely happy with the results of this neck surgery. I was skeptical at first because so many other doctors will not operate on him, but when I first met Dr. Jacobs, all my fears dissipated and I was ready to see some positive changes in my life. I would totally recommend him to my loved ones if they want to get rid of stubborn neck pain, he is the man to got to!

I saw the doctor for literally 3 mins and he may have been competent. The PA who does the bulk of the examining however is not. "That back brace looks soooooo good on you". Direct quote. Thanks for your years of medical expertise. This was what ended a visit that started with a terrible symptom evaluation (I was going for a second opinion so I've been through appropriate evals). Really disappointed in the level of professionalism.

Dr. Jacobs is a superb surgeon. He spent a lot of time with me and it is clear he is a very caring physician.

Needed surgical 2nd opinion. After redundant questions by an unimaginative assistant, Jacobs sauntered in clearly annoyed. Now, I'd stated weeks ago that this was a 2nd opinion. When I repeated so to him, his demeanor transformed. My wife and I were amazed -he just wanted to end the session. Sure do it, tell Dr. xxx I said hello. Then he stood and walked out, followed by assistant, nary a word. No big bucks from this patient? Take a hike pal. At least it's how felt to us.
