Jolanta Fabicka – Aug 08, 2021
She was very informative and professional. Two years ago I was told that I had a blood clot behind my left knee, I was prescribed xarelto 20mg. My oncologist and pulmonary physicians continued me on xarelto and hadn’t sent me in to see if the clot was still present. Dr. Jacobs’s team found no clot and also didn’t feel I should be on xarelto especially at the 20mg dose. She also prescribed compression hose to help with my varicose veins. I felt that I had a very through examination and a Doctor who was helping me. Since I will be under going knee replacement surgery soon, it was a relief to know I don’t have any clots.

Joyce Pyle – Aug 08, 2021
To begin...the schedule for the ultrasound and the examination by Dr. Jacobs was on time. After reviewing and discussing the ultrasound findings, we discussed my history of previous vascular procedures and physicians, as well as my current health status. We then discussed the path forward in accordance with her extensive knowledge, experience and suggestions taking into account my specific interests/needs. We than scheduled dates for procedures that would accomplish the work while providing me with the most comfort. My impression is that Dr. Jacobs an enormously competent and knowledgeable vascular surgeon who provided me with the best solution for my needs.

Dr. Jacobs should get a 10 gold star review. Super competent, kind, helpful. Best of the best--as was the very pleasant young man who did my ultrasound. I do not know his name but he was very easy to be with and careful in doing his job.

Rella Feldman – Jun 06, 2021
This is my 2nd visit with Dr Jacobs and it seems like I have consulted with her for many years. Dr Jacobs put me at ease by engaging me in my treatment, by explaining what is going on with my leg using understandable language at the same time explaining in medical terms what needs to be done. In short, I am part of my treatment, and there is only one way to go and that is to get well. She is a natural physician.
