Ratings for Dr. Donald Jakubek
I honestly wouldn't let this charlatan treat my dog. Four times in the last year he sent me away saying I was fine when I had serious problems all four times I ended up in the hospital and every time they asked who the heck is your horrible family Dr that missed this and how.
Dr. Jakubek has been treating my Type I diabetes for over 20 years and has helped me maintain a wonderful quality of life with very few complications from the disease. He is ultimately patient, compassionate and treats the WHOLE patient. He will spend as long as it takes to give me a thorough appointment. His care of my elderly mother was everything we could ever ask for. It is important to remember that doctors are not mind readers and their ongoing treatment of you can only be as good as you let it be.
Dr. Jakubek is extremely negligent of his patients. He diagnosed my mother with cellulitis in her ankle and continued to feed her antibiotics and have her walk on her leg for over a month before she was finally diagnosed with a displaced fracture above her ankle at the local emergency room. He also did not follow up with her cronic diahrea (5 weeks) and she is now in the hospital kidney failure from severe dehydration and possible heart damage from elevated potassium levels (also from the dehydration). He did prescribe her a cholesterol drug for the diahrea a couple weeks ago because one of the side effects is constipation. Obviously it didn't work and he didn't run any tests even though he had no idea what is wrong.
