My daughter has a complicated medical history. Dr Jacobs performed complicated surgeries with wonderful results. He is one of the reasons our daughter has been able to thrive. He has continued to monitor our daughters results for over 7 years

Dr. Jacobs is rude and incompetent. He came into the appointment unprepared, asking "why are you here". He was 100 percent useless. I never met a doctor with worse bedside manner and who was absolutely no help at all! Don't wait your time or money!

I would not recommend Dr. Jacobs to my worst enemy. His bedside manner is horrible!! I felt so rushed every time we saw him and it was like it was a bother for him to answer our questions especially after my sons surgery. He at one point was backing out of the room while we were trying to ask him a question. Our wait was so long and then to have to deal with his aweful personality....he is like a piece of dry toast!! The worst part is we kept asking him about his adnoids and he kept dismissing me as if I were crazy to ask him a question. When we went to another dr, he stated he knew they needed to come out upon entering the exam room. I was so relieved that I wasn't crazy but that Dr. Jacobs was just ignorant and too busy to take the time to figure out what was wrong with my child. Please save yourself the aweful experience of Dr Jacobs.

He didn't take any time with me and my child, he rushed me out of the room! It seemed as though he didn't care at all about my child, which was very upsetting! He didn't answer my questions or explain anything to me! When he was assessing my childs ears, the otoscope cord was pushing on my face and he didn't even care! I am very dissatisfied! He for sure will not be performing surgery on my child, or seeing us again! I have only heard good things about CHOP, but he was horrible!!! What a waste of my co-pay and time!

Horrible bedside manner. So bad that my 6 year old daughter asked me "Mommy why doesn't he care about me?". I had a hard time answering that question.

CHOP is a great facility. Most of the drs are also great. My son had surgery @ CHOP @ 17 days old. Loved all the staff (nurse, drs, etc). Dislike Dr Jacobs very much. I don't know how he is a pediatric dr. he has no patience. Horrible bedside manner.
