Provider and entire staff always courteous and professional. I would recommend to anyone

June 28, 2017

All of my visits with Dr. Bruce Jacobs and his staff have been favorable with excellent professional treatment in a caring and friendly manner. Dr. Jacobs and nurse Tanya have provided medical treatment in a highly professional and caring manner for the last 3 years and 8 months.

June 26, 2017

Dr. Jacobs could not have been more professional and friendly.He answered all my questions in a very candid and non-condescending manner.When my test results were received,he had the courtesy and compassion to call me directly with the results which I really appreciated. In short,Dr. Jacobs is an asset to Dr.Nelson`s team.

Dr seemed in hurry to leave room. Did stop when I asked questions but gave short answers.

June 19, 2017

His entire team is excellent

The care Dr. Jakobs, Linda and the staff give me has always been exceptional. He is a very wonderful caring physician. If he were not, I would not travel over 1 1/2 hours to see him. He always tries to accommodate the testing (such as MRI at Hillmann) on the same day that he will see me. Very considerate person. He discusses with me and my wife the plan of treatment always. Very grateful to him and his staff.

excellent care

June 05, 2017

I went to dr. Jacobs for a second opinion for some cancer that I have. Because of his concern, skill set and interest in my situation I have decided to let him do the surgery to address that issue, rather than the urologist that I initially went to

May 22, 2017

Very well run organization
