Office staff is helpful and very nice. The office is in a convenient spot, once you know where to park. I recommend calling ahead for that info - it’s easy, I just didn’t know where the lot was. Dr Jacobs wasthorough, very nice, and did a great job. I will return to him next time I need a new glasses script!

I decided to try Dr. Jacobs based on the reviews I had seen and I'm glad I did! He was VERY thorough and took his time with me. The tech that did my pre-tests and the front office clerk were VERYnice and made me feel welcomed. They explained everything they were doing and even though my exam turned out to be a little more than a regular eye exam, Dr. Jacobs was wonderful and took the extra steps and tests to make sure there was nothing we needed to worry about. Will def be back!!!

I've been seeing Dr. Jacobs as my optometrist for a while and he's always been so incredibly friendly and professional. He doesn't gripe when I tell him how horribly I abuse my contacts, but instead helps determine the best product forme since he understands I'm not likely to change that habit. :) He's fantastic!
