Patient reviews for Dr. Jerry Jacobs
Absolutely a wonderful man and an attentive doctor. I’m pleased with my decision switching doctors.
Usual annual checkup visit, very pleasant experience.
Convinient location for anyone working in Downtown Dallas! Had great expirience seeing Dr. Jerry Jacobs!
Awesome man. Really takes his time with his patients.
Dr. Jacobs goes above and beyond any eye doctor I have ever seen. He is very thorough with his exams and even personally helps you pick out the right glasses for you. He answered every question I had and never once acted like I was wasting his time or asking stupid questions. I will definitely be going back to see him and his staff. Top notch.
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 was thorough, very nice, and did a great job. I will return to him next time I need a new glasses script!
Super convenient if you work or live downtown

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!!!
Wonderful office, great location, and friendly staff! I recommend Dr. Jerry to anyone looking for a professional yet approachable eye doctor! thanks!
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!
