Ratings for Dr. Nesya Freyda Frances Goldberg Jacob
We've always had a good experience with Dr. Jacob. She's always listened carefully to our concerns, and has been careful with her examinations. What I especially like about her is that if she is not 100% sure of what the problem might be, she will refer you to a specialist (and not proceed with trial-and-error treatment!!!), and we've always been referred to very good doctors. Overall, I'm happy with my doctor!
So incredibly unhelpful. Rather than listening to me, she took the high level cause and just ordered tests. She relies on tests. Period. But most concerning are her physicals. Not even a breast exam???? That is criminally negligent behavior. I was walking back to my car after my yearly physical 25 minutes after walking in and that included a blood test. Absolutely finding another doctor.
She is very impatient,not personable or compassionate or nice.She types away while you talk and doesn't appear to be really listening to you or your concerns. On the first appointment with her she told me that if she wasn't there that I couldn't see anyone else and would have to go to the Emerg.If I don't do all the tests she wanted she was curt and talked down to me making me feel stupid and degraded. Made me feel like an infant. Her physical exam are a joke,maybe 3 mins max, like she was going over a piece of meat. Relies on too many tests rather than knowledge. Went to walk-in clinic and she asked rudely"You felt more comfortable talking with a stranger?"- I said YES-and that is the truth. She needs to learn compassion,patience and caring-what Dr's do? Didn't listen or ask me any questions recently and acted because I didn't call her back- I wasn't in the city and submitted something that has affected my life and now she will not do a thing to rectify her mistake.Find a better Dr.
I like that Dr Goldberg Jacob keeps record of everything typing it in while you speak - helps her see your problem in context. Another good thing about her that she saw me more than once on a very short notice when there was an emergency. She IS curt but seems to be on top of things and quite efficient. Yes, we want doctors to be compassionate, but in light of the pathetic state of our health care, who can ask for such luxury? I would reccomend her without hesitation, but I don't think she takes new patients.
Not very personable. Told me on first appointment that she did not want to see me here sick. If I am sick I can only see her or go to the emerge dept., can't see anyone else in the office. Sent me for a huge amount of tests of which I didn't want to do all of them and then talked down to me when I came in 1 year later saying that I hadn't been in to see her in a year. Who would want to go to see her when you are treated like an infant and made to furl uncomfortable and stupid. Her physical exam is a joke- quick and like she was checking over some meat in a store. Goes thru the motions of being a Dr, but that is all. Relies too much on medical tests and not on her own observations. Think I will go to a car dealer for diagnostic tests- which would be much better.
