Just tells you everything will be fine...

It is a long story, but he spends little time with patients actually explaining what will be done. After surgery he praises how well everything went, when in fact you are no better than when you came in .

Three Stars

I had cervical fusion done in 2014 and I'm sorry I ever did. My neck swelled up like a balloon and I couldn't get an appointment to see the Dr. 2 weeks later when I finally saw the Dr and he asked what I did ??? What I did ??? Seriously?? My stitches were coming out of my skin. Needless to say I saw him twice more and he said there's nothing more I can do. Really I'm in so much pain, after going to a real Dr they found the mistakes made. The nerves that were still being pinched in my neck, I now have thyroid issues which I've never had before my cervical fusion. So now I have to have more surgery to fix his mess

Looks at you contemptuously if going to him for 2nd opinion

Needed surgical 2nd opinion. After redundant questions by an unimaginative assistant, Jacobs sauntered in clearly annoyed. Now, I'd stated weeks ago that this was a 2nd opinion. When I repeated so to him, his demeanor transformed. My wife and I were amazed -he just wanted to end the session. "Sure do it, tell Dr. xxx I said hello". Then he stood and walked out, followed by assistant, nary a word. No big bucks from this patient? "Take a hike pal." --At least thats how it felt to us. I do not make this critique lightly, but his dismissive and abrupt mannerisms should not be ignored.

Great Doctor

Dr. Jacobs operated on my back and after years of horrible pain I am finally healthy again. He has a great sense of humor and followed up with me after my operation. The office staff was very friendly as well.
