Dr. Jacobs always runs his medical office in a professional and efficient manner. In the morning, I had an ultrasound test performed for my carotid artery stenosis condition and then went to see Dr. Jacobs to discuss the results. After our visit, his assistant made an appointment to have the same test repeated next year and gave me the work order form. I also like to receive a copy of the test results for my records and to share this information with my primary care physician and Dr. Jacobs' assistant mailed this to me, as well. Thank you.

excellent front office staff. I was seen on time and didn't feel rushed with the doctor. the only negative was there was confusing signage throughout the trip to the office. the elevator had doctor in one office number, that office sent me to another office that had Dr Jacobs name on it, but that was the wrong office and in third office visited I found it! that would be hard for an elderly person. the hallways of the MOB could using a refresh as they are quite dated

The receptionist was very nice and helpful in advising me with the best time of the ultra sound appointment I needed to make.The Dr was very nice and entroduced himself with curtesy and a welcoming smile which made me more comfortable to talk and explain my health issue.
