He was great, quick, thorough, had lots of suggestions, answered questions, explained everything he was doing, I had a highly positive experience. It did feel a little rushed at the very end, but that was a tiny detail. I don't like giving reviews based on one initial visit, but for what it is, the visit was great.

I cannot say enough good things about this establishment. From the second I walked in to the second I walked out. Rose at the Reception Desk greeted me so nice and warm. The office was clean and comfortable. The nurse (I wish I got her name) was incredibly wonderful and pleasant to talk with about my symptoms. And finally, Dr. Jacobowitz was so amazingly professional and made me feel 110% comfortable. Dr. Jacobowitz talked through the procedure and empathized at times it was going to feel uncomfortable or pain. I was completely blown away at the hospitality of this office, I literally started recommending this place the minute I walked outside.

Dr. Ofer Jacobowitz was great, but his office staff is a mess. After our appointment, Dr. Ofer Jacobowitz ordered a sleep test for me. I did not hear back from his office for several weeks, and finally right before my follow-up appointment, I gave them a call. It turned out that they never sent the sleep study request through, but no one bothered to follow up with me. Over the last two months, I have tried calling over 10 times to follow up on the status of my sleep test, and every time there is a different reason for why the test has not been ordered yet, or I have been asked to call back later because the person that I am working with is busy. Today the reason they haven't ordered the test yet is that they just hired a new medical assistant and she was supposed to do it but forgot. Truly an awful experience!

The office staff was extremely friendly and the office was clean. I only had to wait approx. 5 minutes before I was seen by the doctor. I was very nervous during my consultation but Doctor Jacobowitz was extremely kind and walked me through every step of the process. He made me feel comfortable and more at ease. Overall a great experience.

It was awful. Before I went in the staff were fighting. Then he didn't listen to me at all and gave me the same talk you could tell that he gives all his patients. And I could see he wanted to sign me up for all of these expensive procedures. I went to another doc, she gave me one medication for my allergies and now I'm fine. This place is a factory trying to make money. Run!!

He was very patient, took the time to listen and answer all my questions. I did not feel rushed at all. However, this is a very large busy office wit lots of Dr's. Know what you are there for, or you may find yourself railroaded into a number of unnecessary and costly tests. This did not happen to me, but I did overhear some other patients complaining.

Dr. Jacobowitz was very kind, funny, spent lots of time with me, and was very gentle when he had to put a tiny light up my nose to see my throat -- much less discomfort than when another doctor did it previously. Highly recommended.
