This guy is TERRIBLE. We got a referral for my elderly diabetic father, because Medicaid pays for diabetics to see a podiatrist every 3 months to trim their toenails etc. But this guy wouldn't even touch my father's feet--and they're not that bad for an 80-something old man. When I asked what we should do about foot care, he said, "Just take him to one of those manicure places in any strip mall." A decent doctor will tell you that's the last thing you should do.

Dr. Jacoby was extremely knowledgeable and professional. Beautiful office. Very courteous and pleasant staff.

Dr. Jacoby is concerned about a patient's overall good health, not just a hyper-focused piece of the puzzle. This is a rare find in physicians these days.

I went to Dr. Jacoby for heel pain. I had tried everything from changing shoes, OTC orthotics, ice & stretching. No relief. After my visit with him I started physical therapy in his office. I only needed four treatments and I'm back to my daily walks again. Thank you Dr. Jacoby & Staff!
Scottsdale, AZ |
Worst experience ever. This doctor gave me a injection for a big toe fracture (which I later learned a doctor should know better than to do this). The injection caused a hematoma from hitting blood vessels in addition to severe nerve damage that I have now had for 3 months. This could take years to heal if it even heals at all. Now I can barely walk let alone do all of the active things I used to do. DO NOT GO HERE!!!!

Dr. Jacoby is a very knowledgeable doctor. He uses a different approach than most doctors. He has all the latest and greatest technology in one convenient place. I thought I needed surgery on my torn tendon but he was able to do a non-invasive treatment and I am back to walking and being painfree!! Thank you Dr. Jacoby & Staff! Highly Recommend!

Dr. Jacoby is an inconsiderate lout of a man, who has left me crippled. He shot cortisone in my left foot for a toe that had been fractuated and dislocated. He went too deep and hit some nerves. I now have awful neuropathy. I tried to discuss my new issues since his injection, he said "that could happen drinking a glass of milk" He made fun of my condition. He deflected everything I said. I am filing a formal complaint I was extremely active and now can't walk, sleep, etc. He Harmed Me!!!
