Overall a great doctor. He's such a wonderful addition to Centerpoint. He is patient and takes his time to inform me of my options and then let's me make a decision. My surgery was wonderful and I went home in two days. Thank you Dr. Jacobsen.

Dr. Jacobsen was great and I would recommend him to anyone in the area. I was told he was new to the area and I am glad I was able to see him. He took his time to make me feel comfortable and answered all questions I had. I find that's rare these days for a surgeon to actually listen.
