Dr Jacobs is kind, approachable, highly skilled and excels in his vocation; he was able to build a delightful and immediate rapport with my ten year old daughter (and myself too) and his attention to issues of significance and understanding is truly appreciated. His Secretary is also kind, helpful and cordial. Thank you so much.
