Horrible office experience. 8:30 am appointment on a Friday.....Waited one hour for a consultation, which is what 10 minutes? Told them I had to leave by 9:30 and walked out not even seeing a doctor....maybe he doesn't exist? Rude staff and they took my $45 for nothing!!! Not professional at all.

He is very responsive and competent regarding any kind of complications that come up. That's the good. I had a breast reduction and these are the reasons I would not recommend him. I was very clear about wanting to be "as small as possible", yet the amount of breast tissue he took out would qualify more as a lift, not a reduction. Except that my breasts are also not lifted. I only lost about 2 cup sizes and I also lost about 20 pounds since my surgery. When my concerns were brought up, he agreed to take out more tissue. Except he tried to resubmit to my insurance (why would they pay again?). My insurance denied and I haven't heard anything from his office. I wasn't even offered the chance to pay for a revision. My breasts also sit too close together, one is a little bigger than the other, and I have horrible scarring. I don't regret the surgery, but I regret having him do it. He is very competent, but does not listen to the patient's wishes. That is why I cannot rate him higher.

I recently had surgery with many complications, and Dr. Jacobsen was wonderful! The complications were not due to anything on his part; my body just would not heal due to infections, etc, even though we were doing our very best to follow all directions. He was vigilant in my healing process, having me email him twice a day with pictures of my incisions and providing me feedback and direction. After multiple times on the operating table to open the incision and clean it up with the same results, he used a wound vacuum to help me heal. He even came in on a Saturday to change the wound vac as it was a holiday weekend and we couldn't get a nurse to come to the house . His office worked with my insurance and a medical company for a nurse to come to my house three times a week to help with this healing process. He is a true professional and showed nothing but compassion, expertise, and dedication. I will always be grateful to this doctor for his excellent care and to his office staff.

I couldn’t be happier with my experience with Dr. J for my breast augmentation. Through my whole surgery experience I felt well taken care of, informed and comfortable. From consult to post op, Dr. J & his staff with wonderful. He listened and honored what I wanted and he delivered! I am 7 months post op and couldn’t be happier with my decision to have Dr Jacobsen preform my surgery!

At my last appt, Dr. J. asked me what I wanted. I replied I wanted my breasts to be redone. He led me to believe this would be done without additional charges. AFTER I left the office, he sent an email requiring me to PAY him again to fix the issues he CAUSED. Would NEVER recommend!

A few thoughts: Dr. J agreed that my left breast is now smaller than my right breast. He then said that this is normal in some woman. It has NEVER been normal for me, even prior to my first implants. Prior to surgery, you asked what size I wanted. My husband and I both said “larger" than what I had at that time. We weren’t shown a sample or told how many more cc’s you planned to add. You just said it will be proportional to my body size. At my visit in Sept. I was told I could now start wearing a regular bra. When I first put one of my bra’s on, the cup size was now too big on me. I have since had to be remeasured for a new bra. Prior to sx, my bra size was 38D. It is now 38C. At my last appt, Dr. J. asked me what I wanted. I replied I wanted my breasts to be redone. He led me to believe this would be done without additional charges. AFTER I left the office, he sent an email requiring me to PAY him again to fix the issues he CAUSED. Would NEVER recommend!

Dr Jacobsen did the closure and repairs after I had cancer removed from my nose. This was a very stressful event. He and his staff made me feel very relaxed and comfortable. Two weeks later I am very happy with the results. He is a very skilled surgeon. I didn't need to contact him afterward with any concerns, but I had very clear information about how to contact him if needed and what to expect after surgery. I was given plenty of information about what I should do to have the best possible outcome.

Dr J. is a great surgeon and gives his complete attention to his work at hand. He listens and communicates and has a great bedside manner. His pricing is affordable with great results. Any questions or concerns you have are answered by Dr. J. himself. Which to me goes above and beyond. His staff is friendly and respectful. I would highly recommend this practice.

No, No, No. I went to Dr. J to replace my breast implants of 25years. One was encapsulated and hard. His office got some partial financial relief through my insurance. But in the end it was not worth it. I was told the procedure was easy to replace the original implants. I was not offered the difference between silicone/saline feeling the doctor would know best. The old implants were silicone and new ones saline. Don't do saline if you can upgrade to silicone. On my first follow up I questioned the hardness of the breast with the encapsulation only to be told all was well and the breasts looked good. On subsequent follow ups it was the same. No concern for my concern. Long story short it has been 18 months and I have been uncomfortable with the results. Not wanting to go to for well women checks or mammograms. I now know they have all seen worse. I'm looking forward to another surgery to remove the scar tissue and corrective surgery. Dr. J is not your solution.

Beware! This doctor over promises and under delivers!! When concerns/issues are brought up, he immediately gets defensive and his whole demeanor changes. Dr Jacobsen is a prideful, arrogant doc who lacks empathy and the ability to own up to his mistakes. Trust me, stay away!!!

Great experience with Dr Jacobsen. I had a tummy tuck, breast lift with implant exchange and I am very happy with the results. Dr. J came to the hospital the night after I had the surgery to check on me. Very impressed. Dr J did a wonderful job and I will highly recommend him. "High Class" Doctor and office as well. Thank you. (01/10/19)

To Diane in Phoenix. Whoopee-do! If you don't want to be taken care of by an excellent, caring physician, go find one that doesn't have any patients. See how good they are!

Dr. Jacobsen is “THE BEST DOCTOR” I have ever had in my life and boy, I have had dozens and dozens! After going to several doctors who would not operate on me and told me that I would probably die from my open wound, Dr. J took it on. He explained everything in layman’s terms and told me that it may take a couple of surgeries (he was correct, it took 3) to close it. I will always be indebted to Dr.J for his gentle, caring and compassionate manner in which he runs his practice and office.

Dr. Jacobsen has been caring for me for the past 9 years since my diagnosis with breast cancer. He is caring, compassionate and responsive. Dr. J even met me on a Sunday afternoon to take care of me.

Dr. Jacobson is amazing. He did surgery on top of my head for melanoma. Had surgery on same area 7 years ago.results with Dr Jacobson far exceeded my expectations, which were already high. He is very skilled with great personal approach. I can't overstate how great he is. He has a calm and quiet approach. If you are in need of a top notch surgeon, look no farther. Dr Jacobson is the best!!!

Dr. Jacobsen put me immediately at ease and his expertise fixed a bad scar left by a dermatologist. I can’t recommend him strongly enough.
