You will not find a doctor that is more kind, compassionate and dedicated to helping you grow your family than Dr. Jacobs. He is incredibly personable and tries to connect with his patients. We had many set backs along the way and he never gave up on us and kept pressing to find a solution. Dr. Jacobs always took the time to thoroughly explain everything, make sure you knew all your options (even if they are ones you do not want to hear), and make sure all your questions were answered. If any questions or concerns came up after meeting with him, he was always quick to respond to any emails (even at night and on the weekends). His nurses and staff were also nothing sort of amazing. They were always there if you had any questions, needed anything and to calm you down if you had any worries. I would highly recommend Dr. Jacobs and his staff to help you grow your family.

I loved working with Dr. Jacobs. From the very beginning, he made me feel like I was in great hands. He was realistic, but super supported and positive. I had experiences with two other fertility doctors in a different practice, and Dr. Jacobs was a world of difference. I highly recommend his care as he has made all my dreams possible. One thing I really appreciated was that he shared his email address and actually responded to emails. I just emailed a couple of times as his staff is excellent, but it gave me a peace of mind.

My experience from start to finish was wonderful. Dr. Jacobs is so accessible and compassionate, and his staff is always friendly and responsive to any questions. Bloodwork results are back the same day, the nurses are always very thorough and kind, and Dr. Jacobs responds quickly to his email which I found to be so impressive. He is extremely experienced and well-respected in his field, and that paired with his easygoing and empathetic nature made me know that I was receiving the best care possible. I felt truly valued and cannot recommend Dr. Jacobs enough to anyone going through the daunting and emotional fertility process.
