Learn about this doctor

Care Philosophy

I believe that patients should not have to learn to live with allergies, asthma or recurrent infections. The goal of my clinic is to be at the cutting edge of allergy, asthma and clinical immunology. I will use the best available evidence in everything I do. I want patients to expect more from me. I want this clinic to be what they think of when someone asks them what they expect from a physician and a medical office. Find out more on our website, www.kcallergycenter.com.Read more

I have eosinophilic esophagitis and have been under Dr. Jacobs care now for over a year. My esophagus has improved greatly and I am very pleased. He spends much time explaining things, is easy to understand, and is very responsive if you have a question. I think his passion for patients is unparalleled.

I take my 4 year-old to see Dr. Jacobs for his food allergies. All the staff are amazing. Dr. Jacobs is great with my son. He really takes a lot of time, especially on that first visit, to go through all the ins and outs of food allergy. I felt really comfortable leaving with all my questions answered and knowing that we can actually do something about his food allergies!

I had a great experience. Dr. Jacobs spent plenty of time going over all my allergy questions and it was a pleasant vist. He is funny and makes things easy to understand. I have no problems recommending him.

I went in with a specific allergy symptom. Jacobs talked to me for a few minutes, then turned me over to a nurse for allergy testing. After the testing, he popped in for 15 seconds to say that the nurse (pleasant but admittedly inexperienced) would go over the results and prescriptions. He said I could email him with questions. My "treatment plan" printout was boilerplate, stuff you could find on the internet -- close windows, shower after being outside etc. Not really helpful.
I am sorry to hear about this patient's experience. It can be hard during a busy day to remain on time sometimes and I rush. This is probably what happened to this patient and I apologize. Emailing me through the patient portal has been invaluable, though. Patients can email me directly and not deal with phones. I want to know if the treatment plan is not working, and we can often sort things out via email without having to come in for an office visit - saving patients time and money. -Zach
