Diagnosing is Excellent

Dr. Jacobs and his staff, although busy, are friendly and caring. Dr. Jacobs listens when I discuss my issues. He has always targeted the source of my medical situation. I trust my health issues to Dr. Jacobs and feel he does a great job with my family, too.

No Time

Dr. Jacobs and his staff are not kind. He does not take the time to talk to his patients. If I would try to talk, he would be walking out the door and writing his notes while he quickly answered. He is very quick and out-the-door. I tried to talk with the staff about a problem. They were extremely rude and hurtful. I would not recommend anyone to go there. He is not a caring doctor. His staff is very cold and harsh. It was a horrible experience at every office visit.

Before accepting a prescription...

ask if he is being compensated in any way for having prescribed the drug for you. I firmly believe -- without any evidence other than his behavior -- that he prescribes based on favors granted from drug companies. That is the only reasonable explanation for one drug he almost insisted that I take (that was CLEARLY and SERIOUSLY contraindicated in my case).
