Specialties

Dr. Mark Jacobs has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • 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.

Unprofessional jerk

Mark Jacobs is as much of a hack as he is a jerk. He (mis)diagnosed me with gastritis years ago. Part of his diagnosis was for me to abstain from alcohol competely forever. Seeking out high quality craft beer brought me a lot of enjoyment and I wanted to understand his diagnosis. I started asking more detailed questions and he snapped at me saying if it was this hard for me to give up alcohol then maybe I have a different problem. Implying I am an alcoholic is totally unprofessional and unacceptable.

While the Dr. Jacobs is in the office, asked me lie on the table and pull down my pants, rolled me over to my side, checked me, while he was still in the office asked me to pull my pants up. He was over at the table writing. There was no assistant present in the office. Never once did he leave me alone to get dressed. I was very offended.
