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.

She is nice, kind and extremely good at what she does. She follows up to make sure that things are done correctly and calls back when you have a question. She has a very nice bedside manner and tries to accommodate when you are not feeling well.

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.
