in Pittsburgh PA |
Back in April 2017 my husband faced a possibly serious situation when his abdominal hernia bulged out and became incarcerated. We were so lucky to arrive at UPMC Passavant and have Dr. Jacob on call. He immediately reduced the hernia and surgery was scheduled for the following day. Outcome was successful. Dr. Jacob is the best. Not only is he an extremely talented surgeon, his bedside manner should be made the standard for all doctors. He is compassionate and caring. We love Dr. Tim.

I have had 2 surgeries done by Dr Jacobs. I would recommend him to any friend or family member.

I did not have a very good experience with Dr. Jacob. I felt that he was not listening to what I was saying about my pain and my past history with the pain I was having. Wanted to run tests that were not even related to what was going on with me
