As a patient of Dr. Jacobson's, I have found her to be a reliable, intelligent, caring and totally loyal physician to me. Dr. Jacobson has always showed concern for my problems both health wise and socially. I also, have found that she shows great concern for her other patients. [...] I would recommend Dr. Jacobson to anyone asking me for a great epileptolgist. When I first met Dr. Jacobson I saw her caring and passion of her decision making as a physician and that is why I am so glad that she stayed in Philadelphia since other doctors I have had either retired or moved on.

Doctor J is an AMAZING provider. I often wish I could see her for EVERYTHING but she does well to answer all of my questions and refer me back to a specific department when needed. She understands me and I appreciate the effort she puts into my care.

Dr. Jacobson has been a reliable, intelligent and totally loyal to mine and my spouse's concern. When contacting Dr. Jacobson by phone or mytemplehealth I always receive a quick response. Dr. Jacobson has also been willing to fit me in as a patient when times were not available. I would recommend Dr. Jacobson for anyone looking for an excellent neurologist within this region.
