What People Say About Dr. Tracy Jakob, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
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.

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.

I may of had to of driven further than I wanted to see an ENT. But I’m happy with the results. Dr Jakob is such a nice lady and didn’t keep me waiting. I was n the waiting room for maybe 10 mins and in the room only about 2 mins after the Assistant left the room before she came in. All the staff are really nice. I would definitely recommend this doctor and her practice to anyone :)
