It is always a pleasure to go to see Dr Jacobs. He is personable and professional and makes every effort to get to right lens prescription. I have been one of patients for many years and could not be happier with his service. His staff are pleasant, helpful and effective
Very pleased. Kind staff. Did not feel rushed or pressured at all.
Staff is friendly, Dr. Jacobs is knowledgeable and professional. Takes his time, answers questions thoroughly.
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 VERY nice 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!!!
He asked me great questions and helped make sense of a few things I hadn't thought of.

Love seeing Dr. Jacobs for my annual visit! Great personality and really cares about the person! Great for the downtown working crowd to get their eyes sorted. Thank you!
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 for me since he understands I'm not likely to change that habit. :) He's fantastic!
