Thankfully this doctor seems to really care...I saw a surgeon from a Crystal Run who was awful, 4 months later am having worsening debilitating pain in my back .I paid a visit to Dr Jacobs today and am so glad finally being listened to -he ordered an MRI right away. When he entered the room I said” please help me”.. He said he will and his staff was just as kind as he was. Hopefully I will be pain free soon, I have full confidence in him .

Dr. Jacobs is an amazing Neuro Surgeon. I would highly recommend him and Physician Assistant, Nelly, to any in need of neurosurgery. The professionalism and caring is up the outmost. After the surgery I felt really good. The recovery has been very speedy and the scar is unnoticeable. So all in all, the whole experience at New York Neurosurgical has been very impressive.

I will most definitely recommend anyone experiencing chronic back pain with the need for surgery to Dr. Jacobs. After months of living with daily pain Dr. Jacobs performed the surgery necessary to remove a tumor that had entangled itself amongst the nerve endings at the base of my spine; within two months after the surgery I was back to life without pain and with minimal scarring.

My experience with Dr. Jacobs has been very positive. I felt that he did a wonderful job with my neck. I was having ridiculous headaches to the point I couldn't function but since the surgery they have almost resolved completely. I appreciate the staff and Dr. Jacobs, he is the man.

I had so much pain in my back and leg that I couldn't stand straight for some weeks. But after my operation I was instantly relieved of all pain. And on top of that, the entire staff was very nice and more than helpful with any questions or concerns I had. I would highly recommend Dr. Jacobs and all of his associates.
