Patient Comments (4)
Sammamish, WA |
I don't usually rate my doctors but noticed some negative reviews of Dr. Jacobs and wanted to comment. I get why some patients experience her as being "rude." That was my initial impression also. I'm glad I stuck it out with her because her treatment recommendations have been right on and she is now one of my strongest "advocates" for sleeping better and feeling better. I've recommended her to my family members.

Health Grades doesn't have Kimberly Lonergan, ARNP in their system (though I see other ARNP's) so I'll review her with Dr. Jacobs, whose practice she shares. I can't recommend Dr. Lonergan highly enough. I was quite dismayed when she left another practice (for personal reasons) and thought so highly of her that I watched the web for 6 months I found her again at Creekside Sleep Medicine. She has always treated me with great respect, compassion, skill, and wide breadth of knowledge. TEN stars!

I also had a bad experience on my first visit and will not go back. She's insulting and rude. I've NEVER had a doctor experience like hers. I would like to know where she received her medical degree.

Dr. Jacobs is rude and somewhat incompetent as far as I am concerned. Her other reviews baffle me. She was very rude to me on my first visit. That should have been a red flag, but I continued seeing her. It improved but I was never comfortable with her. She failed to tell me a feature my CPAP machine that calibrates the oxygen level automatically. Instead, she kept increasing it to a dangerous level. She will know who I am, and exactly why I rated her the way I did.
