Saw Dr Jacobs in my 20’s for surgery and he told me what my future held with IVF. After several attempts with another doctor due to my insurance I could never keep a pregnancy. I went back to him now in my 40’s with new advances and new tests he was only doing at the time and within a year I had my twins. I have a family now thanks to him.

I just had an amazing experience that I need to share even though I rarely write reviews. I have failed three IVF attempts at RMA with a Doctor Who has little personality and little exclamation for my failed IVF attempts. I decided to see Dr. Jacobs because he has hundreds of five star reviews on the Internet , and now I see why! He was very pleasant and informative and spent time with me answering all my questions. More importantly he had several ideas for different stimulations and using egg vitamins due to my age and doing tests such as the ERA and the RECEPTIVDx to get answers for my failed implantation. He was a breath of fresh air after all our failures and he even has a great sense of humor. With my other doctor the atmosphere was like a funeral home! Do not ever be afraid to get a 2nd opinion! .

Dr. Jacobs is wonderful! Our visits with him were very informative - he helped answer questions that I did not even know to ask, but were important. He was also very accessible via email in between visits, which was great!

Dr. Jacobs was extremely knowledgeable, personable, and easily accessible. We could not have chosen a better doctor for our journey to expand our family. He worked with us around our religious beliefs to come up with a treatment plan designed specifically for us. He was extremely careful with monitoring and medications, and answered all our questions along the way in a timely manner. We were also impressed with how involved he is with research and development! We are so blessed to have had Dr. Jacobs as our physician to help us expand our family.

We had such a positive experience with Dr. Jacobs. A friend recommended him to me when I was struggling to get pregnant, and from the moment we met him, he made us feel so at ease. The time he spent with us was always so helpful and he never made us feel rushed or unimportant. I appreciate how he always encouraged me to email him with questions because it's rare for you to be able to contact a doctor directly. My husband and I both love Dr. Jacobs and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for fertility treatment.
