Dr. Jacobs staff are also a great group of people that's very nice and easy to deal with love all of them.

Very good experience. Made me feel comfortable even though my PSA doubled to 1.1. He advised cancer is very slow growing at my age. Advised another PSA in 6 months and let him know the results.

I was a new patient for a second opinion. After competing the paperwork, I did wait approximately half an hour before I was seen by the physician. Otherwise, my experience was very good.

excellent care

November 07, 2016

Dr. Jacob's is kind, gentle, friendly, and good-hearted. He is an excellent doctor and explains things so that they are easily understood. He is genuinely concerned for my health and well-being and includes me in critical decisions so that I know what was going to happen in my treatment as well as the outcome possibilities. His decisions regarding my health directly aligned with mine given my education in Biochemistry, knowledge of cancer, and experience with kidney disease. Today I am cancer free and living a full life with one healthy kidney. I would like to thank Dr. Jacobs for being a healer and for saving my life.
