Dr J is a seasoned doctor, he knows his stuff. We did an immense amount of research before choosing a doctor. Prior to FCI we went to NW, I would have to show up hours prior to my appointment time and sit on a floor in a hallway with 25+ women waiting for the doors to unlock. At FCI you are not just a number, this man answered all of my questions, I could email him at any time in the night and he would always respond within a few hours. IVF is anxiety provoking and Dr. J gets it, granted he is a professional in speciality, whom typically from my experience most have the brains but not the bedside manner, Dr. J is down to earth as well and can hold a conversation. We suffered loss and he was right there holding my hand getting me through this once again. My husband and I admire most is DR. Jacob's honesty. It's not about the money to this man, he is not going to sugar coat things and make you do cycle after cycle.. he is honest and tells you the problem, and the solution which in turn brings us to our child. We were not an easy case by any means, yes, I am that paranoid patient with 10,000 questions , my husband has severe male factor and I am more than likely DOR. Our baby is due in January thanks to this man!

I had an amazing experience that I want to share. I was seeing another fertility specialist in Hoffman Estates and did IVF last December but failed. I am only 34 but had poor quality embryos and the doctor told me I needed donor egg. I was appalled and sought another opinion with Dr Jacobs. He did not give me any false hope and was very honest and upfront. He started me on a few 'egg vitamins' and discussed changing my eating habits and agreed to try a different protocol for IVF stimulation. I am now 9 weeks pregnant and very thankful that I found him.
