Dr. Jakob is easy to talk to and communicate with, has excellent "bedside manners" and took care of me quickly (with immediate results). I would recommend her to diagnose and take care of your ear, nose and throat issues.

Dr Jakob is great with my whole family: kids starting at under a year through present day with oldest being 9, plus a husband with plenty of ear issues. Highly recommend. Only draw back is she usually has a wait at the office.
