Dr Jakob was very thorough in relieving my earwax buildup! Suggesting a hearing test was a good call. I will definitely follow up. Thanks

I was offered no solution to sinus allergy/ear pain. Before I saw the doctor or nurse was asked to pay an additional 500$ (220$ after Insurance) before doctor would see me for a scope. After I agreed to pay she stuck a scope in the front of my nose and said she confirmed nasal swelling but treatment was still not offered. Left feeling as if I was scammed. Better options available!

One of my doctors highly recommended Dr. Jakob to me and now I can see why. I was pleased that her office worked me in the same week I called for an appointment. The office staff was friendly and helpful. Dr. Jakob did a great job in diagnosing what the growth on my tongue was and in explaining everything that would take place in the surgical procedure to remove the growth. Her office got back with me with the results of my biopsy within a few days. She was correct in her original diagnosis.

Fantastic office staff. Efficient, respectful of your time and extremely friendly. Dr Jakob is outstanding. Compassionate, very knowledgeable and empathetic not to mention personable. Sadly we don’t find doctors like her very often these days.

They really take care of everything here. Their bedside manner is great, very polite and to the point. They let you know what you'll be paying before proceeding which is very helpful when money is tight. Best doctor experience I've had in years. Personally, I'll be suggesting Dr. Jakob to my friends and family because I know they'll be in good hands.

I trust Dr. Jakob to make the correct decisions about my care, and I believe she's very knowledgeable. I plan to continue seeing her for any issues I have regarding ear, nose or throat. The only downside is that I find her bedside manner to be less than warm at times.

I have been a patient of Dr. Jakob for several years, as always a pleasant experience. She spends time to talk and doesn't seem to be rushed off to see the next patient.

Had to wait over an hour after my appointment to see the Doctor . She is very firm in her approach and you have to go elsewhere to get a sinus scan. She said she has no room for the machine. She did give a good mount snd throat exam.
