One of the very best doctors we have found

Posted on May 12th, 2011

My wife had episodes of vomiting green bile for 18-24 hours straight. Many hospital admissions through the ER, many doctors, imaging studies, blood tests, anti-emetic injections until they caused nerve damage, over 8 years. No luck.We saw Dr Jacobs on our first trip to Manhattan. He did not accept insurance, had no staff, and little equipment. He did not do a physical exam; we had had plenty of those, so he did not duplicate.From listening to us and asking pointed questions about her medical history, he diagnosed her as having abdomenal migraines. Prescribed Imitrex tablets, then injections if the tablets didn't work.We had never heard of such a condition (many doctors haven't either). The Imitrex worked. He also referred us to Dr Portenoy's clinic in Beth Israel on Union Park for treatment of her chronic, neurogenic pain. There we found Dr Jan Slomba, another of the very best.He changed our lives drastically for the better. He listens. He thinks. He took the time to really help us.
