Dr Jacob is a amazing physician. She is up to date with medication and answers to my GI questions. I was very sick when I started seeing her. She put me on the right medications. I am forever grateful to her.

I've been with Dr. Jacob for many years. I came to her very sick and she put in place the right treatment plan that ultimately placed me in deep remission. She's a highly skilled and intuitive doctor, but she also has a very caring and sympathetic nature. She has just the right combination of skill and care that made the whole healing process so much easier for me.

Dr. Jacobs is great when you are in the office seeing her, she was very thorough in the details and options of my condition. Once you leave the office, there is absolutely no service and no care from her staff- you will have to initiate and repeatedly call to get anything done or receive any response. Her staff did not follow through getting my medication pre-approved from my insurance company and their unprofessionalism has led to 3 weeks of waiting. Today I was notified that Dr. Jacobs is the rest of this month so I have to wait 3 more weeks for her to return. Very, very poor care and communication.

Dr. Jacobs is incredible; her staff is absolutely unbearable. I could have started my medication a week ago, but the staff’s incompetency has barred me from filling my prescription. BUT, that said, the front staff has become so unbearable, that I am afraid, with much concern and regret, will have to change doctors.

Many times when you're dealing with a medical issue, you go for a second opinion. Dr. Jacob was my 4th. She was the first doctor that didn't brush off issues that I was having, or try to minimize what I was going through. Dr.Jacob kept squeezing me into her schedule to try and figure out what was wrong. Dr. Jacob is very thorough in explaining things, but not overwhelming. She listens and has genuine concern for her patients. I highly recommend her if you need someone in her field of expertise.
