Specialties

Dr. Frederick M Jacobsen IV has the following 3 specialties

  • Sleep Medicine

    A sleep medicine specialist is specially trained in diagnosing and treating disorders involving sleep.
    Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and insomnia are very common and can often cause other serious health issues, such as depression, asthma, and migraines. Sleep medicine specialists often work in sleep centers where they observe a patient while sleeping and monitor brain waves, behavior, and vital signs in order to identify the causes of sleep disturbance, or an inability to sleep (insomnia).
    Sleep medicine specialists treat patients through advising on sleep hygiene, providing cognitive behavioral therapy, using light therapy, or medical sleep aides.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

  • Clinical Pharmacology

    A clinical pharmacologist is a physician (can also be a pharmacist or scientist) who works to develop new drugs and to understand their applications in the real world. These doctors conduct experimental studies of new drugs on patients to learn what a drug does to the body, what happens to the drug while in the body, what dosage and frequency the drug is most effective at, any adverse side effects, and any interactions.
    Through their study of drugs, these doctors work to make sure that medications are used to their maximum benefit with as few negative side effects as possible.

Four Stars

I've worked with Dr. Jacobsen (as a patient) for many years. The level of care is excellent. He gives great attention to the 'whole patient,' not just to specialized topics.

Very Pleased

I have been a patient of Dr. Jacobsen for over 20 years, He has seen me through many stages of mental illness and has worked with me help me find the treatment plans necessary as my life moves on. Those last five words, AS MY LIFE MOVES ON, sum up the reason I give my highest commendation to Dr. Jacobsen. If I could not write that, nothing else would matter. He has responded to my phone calls and made room for me at short notice. I want the doctor who is going to fit me in, even if he has to apologize to another patient for a delay. He is great at answering my questions and often my questions confuse me. I am glad he is working to stay ahead of the curve to treat the unfolding and sometimes bizarre chapters of my mental health. Thank you Dr. Jacobsen.

Consistently late, distracted, always seems to be preparing for his next high-fee lecture somewhere. If you look at his CV, you see lightweight topics in lightweight journals. Interestingly, doesn't list his residency in Psychiatry at Yale U. where he had a bad rep. Always scheming about how to climb the money tree not have to deal with insurance so he can earn bigger bucks with less hassle. Definitely only for the uninformed 1%. All others should seek elsewhere for humane, modern treatment
