She is a good doctor and a knowledgeable one. However, I felt a bit rushed.

She is very thorough which I LOVE! I never feel uncomfortable around her and always like that she is overly cautious about questionable moles. She's very gentle if she has to remove a mole as well.

I've been seeing Dr. Jacobson for 4 years now. She is always professional, caring, and listens to all my concerns. She takes care of minor procedures (e.g. shave biopsies) right in the appointment, so I don't have to schedule another visit.I'll keep going to her for all my dermatology needs while I'm in the area!

She was very professional, pleasant, and efficient. There was a short wait to see her. After she was just finishing up, I remembered a couple other things I wanted to ask her and she took extra time to look at them.

I came in to check several moles on my arms and back. The office is nice, clean, and quiet. I got seen almost immediately. Dr. Jacobson patiently listen to my concerns and evaluate them with great care. Good thing all ofthem are benign. I will definitely come back to Dr. Jacobson again. Highly recommended.

I've been to six other dermatologist in the area that didn't work out. I'm very easy going, but finding a good derma is not easy around here, I really liked my first visit with Dr. J. She was very caring, personal, and professional.
