Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

She’s honest an unbiased . One of few state listed court approved psychologists for a reason. Even when you don’t agree with her point of view it’s in the best interest of all parties .

My favorite therapist. She helped me through so much. I recently relocated back to the area and just looked her up. Thought I'd leave a review. I highly recommend her. Toni

Dr. Jacob devoted too much time talking about herself and her own experiences rather than probing to bring up what we felt within us. The courses of our dialogs were not well-guided nor in depth. My girlfriend and I both had similar observations about how our visits were conducted. We stopped going to Dr. Jacob after about 12 months.

Dr. Susan Jacobs is a bad example of therapist. She is not truthful. She does not listen to what is told to here. Steer clear from this quack.

Read the other review also! Worst experience ever. Be careful if you are a man and using her services, she will find a way to wreck your world. She has no problem not telling the truth. She will not investigate the truth either, she will assume and use her own opinion. I lived the exact same sentiment from the above review. Dr. Jacob is untruthful, unwilling to find the truth, and does not believe males! Steer clear from her if you are in need of a 730 evaluation. BEWARE!!
