    I took my 8 year old son to see Dr Jacobs regarding an issue he had with tip toe walking. Dr Jacobs was extremely thorough in his approach when obtaining the information he needed to make an assessment. He spent a large part of the initial appointment speaking with my son asking him lots of questions that my son was happy and comfortable to answer. I like that Dr Jacobs was interested to get my perspective on my son's issue. During all 3 consultations, I never felt rushed as Dr Jacobs allowed plenty of time for me to ask questions. He gave his medical opinion in great detail explaining it clearly. Overall, I found Dr Jacobs to show real care towards my son. He was thorough in his assessment as well as in communication- I highly trust his medical opinion.
