Specialties

Dr. Zev Jacobson has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

  • Pediatric Cardiology

    Pediatric cardiologists are pediatricians with additional, specialized, training in the heart health of your children. When infants are born with congenital heart disease or abnormal hearts, pediatric cardiologists get involved as soon as possible — sometimes before the child is even born.
    Through specific testing, they can diagnose the problem and care for the child throughout their treatment, which could range from medication to surgery and transplants. Other heart conditions they treat include arrhythmias, heart murmurs, holes in the heart and viral infections that affect blood flow.

Personal care

Unlike visiting a huge practice I felt that Dr. Jacobson went above and beyond to run tests that I might have to fight a large practice for. He was very thorough.

Trustworthy

Very thorough evaluation at every visit. Doctor Jacobson seems very knowledgable and most importantly he is very cautious yet not an alarmist. His support staff is also just as knowledgable and thorough. Patrick did my daughter's echo-cardiogram and was extremely thorough. Tish who did the holter and ekg was just as nice, thorough and caring.

Five Stars

Dr Jacobson was easy to talk to and he explained everything he was looking for in a clear and calm way. Walking into his office, we had no idea whether we were going to hear a very scary diagnosis. Dr. Jacobson calmed us down immediately in a confident and and caring manner.

Outstanding Doctor!

My son and I met with the doctor for the first time this week. I wish every doctor had this man's compassion, wit and ability to put the patient's as well as the mom's fear at ease! I hope no one I know ever needs a cardiologist for their child, but if they do I will shout Dr. Jacobson's name out. This is a great person!!!
