Dr. Gerhard Jacobs's Ratings
I have really enjoyed reading many of the reviews of Dr.Jacobs, I echo many of the same sentiments. I think he embodies excellence in his profession and is an amazing human being. The birth of our third child was the most beautiful, empowering experience of my life - we just felt completely supported and encouraged throughout the pregnancy and delivery.
I also owe my second child's life to him. She had been misdiagnosed by two other emergency room doctors, who told me after exam that she had flu or viral infection. Dr.Jacobs was the third physician to see her in one weekend, and he correctly diagnosed her before he barrly had a foot in the door. She was hours away from succumbing to an auto-immune condition. His quick action and incredible sensitivity - just leaves me in awe of the person he is. Eternally grateful for him and the impact he has had on our family and the hundreds of others privledged to have him as their family doctor. Thank-you Dr.Jacobs for your kindness, your dedication and your incredible way with people. You are an absolute treasure.
I had serious concern about my daughters health. Not only did Dr. Jacobs totally dismiss my concern he ignored me and would not listen or even acknowledge my presence in the appointment. I took my daughter for a 2nd opinion and this Dr listened to me and put a referral in to a specialist. Now my 4 year old daughter is on thickened fluids for 6 months and has no cough reflex cause this concern was not look after in time. I've heard a lot of great things about Dr. Jacobs but after all this my opinion on him has changed completely.
Dr. Jacobs is the most incredible doctor of our time! This man saved my first child , never quit and prevailed! He is this families hero! He is compassionate and hilarious! He has a twinkle in his eye and that's what makes him the very best doctor I've ever encountered! Dr. Jacobs has delivered both my babies and I see him once a year. I could and would not go anywhere else !
Dr. Jacobs was our Dr. For our first child. I can't say enough about him and his staff! He made me feel very comfortable and confident both with the birth and afterwards as a new mom. I would reccomend him to anyone!
Staff is amazing, I don't have to wait long I'm usually in and out in about 20 mins. He's only my doctor for my pregnacy (which I'm very sad about) he's such a great doctor and very nice person in general. Where as my family doctor if my appointment is at 1pm, I will be waiting in the waiting area for about 30-45mins get into a room and wait another 15-30mins. It's like a 2 hours ordeal.
I was referred to Dr. Jacobs for my first pregnancy since my doctor had stopped doing deliveries. I had requested a referral to a female doctor in St. Albert, but when there were none available we went with Dr. Jacobs. What a blessing this turned out to be. I can't say enough about how great this man is! Dr. J is kind, professional and takes time to answer all questions thoroughly. Every appointment I had was a positive experience starting from the reception desk. The receptionists were always polite and smiley. His nurse, efficient and friendly. Dr. J always entered the room with a smile and/or a witty comment. He fully respected my desire for a drug free, vaginal birth as well as the numerous other birth preferences my husband and I were hoping for. When vaginal exams were done he always called in his nurse (female) to be present. I almost don't want to write about how great this doctor is because I want to make sure I can get in for our next pregnancy! Sincerest thanks Dr. J.
Dr Jacobs has so many years left in his career, but when the day does come to retire he'll have made such a positive impact on so many lives. He delivered our baby and held him with such joy. He respected, cared and listened to us every step of the way. He is very forward thinking as he takes into account the entire well being of the mother and baby (instead of the typical western approach, which is entirely too focused on intervention). We consider ourselves fortunate to have met Dr Jacobs and hope many families will have the privilege to be cared for by him.
I saw Dr Jacobs for the birth of my 3rd child, and I wish I had had him for the other two but I didn't live in St Albert at the time. His bedside manner and professionalism put me at ease despite my fears, even when situations arose. IE, when baby threatened to be breach, he assured me that if she didn't turn he would be fine delivering vaginally if I chose. Baby ended up turning, but was late. Since it was my 3rd and I was never late before, he let me go 2 weeks past my due date, and I ended up going into labour the night before my scheduled induction (which turned out to be unnecessary). I got the natural birth in a hospital setting that I had wanted, he supported my having a doula with me, and all of my wishes were completely respected, including who got to call out the sex of baby (my husband). During the pushing stage, he was calm, and made it easy to focus on the task at hand. If there were such a thing as a male midwife, he would be it. I can't speak highly enough of him.
Dr Jacobs is a 20 out of 10.When my waters broke 4 weeks before my due date he took us on and made the whole experience a wonderful one. Easy to talk to,always makes you feel like there is nothing more important to him than your wellbeing. Cheerful and extremely knowledgeable, I have mostly experienced doctors who treat you like you are on a production line since I came to Canada. Thats not Dr Jacobs, his time is yours.I can go on and on. My husband and I love him, he went to bat for us and delivered our little girl with relative ease and comfort for me. God bless you Dr Jacobs.
