Thorough, efficient, comprehensive, interested, communicative – everything so essential that’s missing in so many of the treadmill, anonymous, multi-specialty clinics. Dr. Jacobson is that wonderful old­school doctor we all wish there were more of.


Smart, kind, thorough, broad scope of knowledge. Provided detailed written summary of office visit. Office extremely well run.


Dr. D Jacobson was exceptionally kind, focused, and patient during my routine ophthalmic exam… Overall, I am pleased with my experience and have already begun recommending him to others.


It is so nice to have an ophthalmologist that looks at all of your medical records and does not just see you as a pair of eyeballs.
