Lawrence Jacobs has the following 2 specialties

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

This doctor the wonderful, however the front office staff, which used to be okay, has become terrible - extremely rude. The new receptionist also doesn't know the answer to most typical questions put to her. The two women that make up the front just glared at me and made feel hated. If this doctor wasn't so good I would never go back. Hopefully he will catch on and make some changes!

I've been seeing Dr. Jacobs since 1980 and would not think of going to anyone else for treatment. He's the best.

Great Doctor and Great Staff

I have been a patient of Dr. Jacobs for years as he treated me for Giant Cell Arteritis, Gout, and now Arthritis. He has always been professional, knowledgeable, and attentive. Every member of his staff from receptionist to nurses to billing/appointment folks have been unfailingly courteous, attentive, and professional.

Great doctor- poor office!

Dr Jacobs is great! He is very through and compassionate. He always takes time to listen and to explain. His office manager is another story. She is very rude and actually told me that I was "dismissed" me from the practice because rather than giving them the required 24 hour notice of cancellation, I only gave her a 21 hour notice.
