    I’m always so reassured when I see Dr Jacobs as he is extremely thorough and knowledgable. He is very balanced and I always trust that he is advising us to follow the safest and most appropriate and effective course of action. He also happens to be an extremely personable, patient and kind doctor which always makes the process more palatable for my children.
