What Patients Are Saying

“He is focused and very professional. He also has a good sense of humor. I’ve gone to him for several years and I wouldn’t go to anyone else.”
- Teresa’s 2020 Google Review

“Dr. Jacob and I have been partners in my health for over 12 years now. I would trust no one BUT him because of his commitment to my health. Where lesser healthcare providers would have told me there’s nothing more that can be done, Dr. Jacob stayed with me, trying new medicines and was determined to treat me to a good outcome and here I am today ... life continues.”

“Very thorough visit with the Dr. Jacob. All questions were answered. The visit and discussing the preparation and treatment process were all excellent. The appointment for the procedure was made on the same day as the initial office visit. All went well”
