Feb 17th, 2012

This was the most unpleasant visit with a doctor for a long time. The doctor exhibited no compassion and was in a hurry to finish work for the day. After he started a procedure (cystoscopy) whichwas so painful that I screamed for him to stop. Two days later I am still in great pain during urination. He orderedpyridium which is worthless.I have had this procedure before with little discomfort. The uroligist used some kind of numbing medication on thepenis which helped a lot. I mentioned this to the urologist without success.I dread the next few days as it will be aweekend. I was told to call back on Monday. I fear blockage of the urethrawhich would mean a trip to the emergency room.I was referred to this doctor by my PCP. I will certainly tell him of my awful experience.

I was referred to Dr. Jacobs by another urologist who informed me that I had "suspicious" tissue present & as one of the pre-eminant physicians in the region, I could pursue my treatment plan w/Dr. Jacobs. Dr. Jacobs was very thorough in his initial exam & recomended a surgical procedure. Bottom line, the procedure went flawlessly, as did my follow-up. Two years out, all is well. Dr. Jacobs' performance exceeded his reputation. Thank you.

Dr Jacobs was unable to disgnose my chronic pain after several office visits and a procedure. Therefore, he said that my pain was psychological. My pain condition was diagnosed and treated on my second visit at Cleveland Clinic who stated that my pain is clearly very real.
