Professional and compassionate

I feel fortunate to have Dr. Jacobson as my doctor. She has the perfect combination of professionalism and compassion. Online meetings are full of information, and I feel well informed with a sense of “next steps” direction at the end of each one. I particularly appreciate the detailed notes from meetings that she provides.

ALWAYS a positive experience

Seeing Dr. Jacobson is ALWAYS a positive experience. We are making progress on my health goals: improving my digestion issues, lowering my a A1C and bad cholesterol. I no longer have Hashimoto’s and we are “peeling back the onion” on other autoimmune issues.

Knowledgeable, caring and calm

Dr Jacobson is so knowledgeable, caring, calm and well prepared. I appreciate her time so much. Seeing her is more valuable than my other doctors combined because she actually listens and cares and makes a plan so that you don’t feel so alone and hopeless.

Empathetic and honed in on details

Dr. Jacobson was empathetic and honed in on details over my lifespan that I’d never connected as being of significance in my medical history. I’ve never had a medical appt be this comprehensive and thorough in all of my life. I am beyond excited to see my progress.

Advised me to trust my intuition

It was amazing to speak with a doctor who not only took all the time we needed to really explain my test results to me in depth, but also advised me to trust my intuition on my health. That’s never happened to me in a doctor’s appointment before, and it was such a breath of fresh air.

Develops a tailored approach

I feel so seen and cared about by Dr. Jacobson. She’s spent more time diving deep with me on labs and my specific needs than any other doctor I’ve seen combined. She’s developing a tailored approach to meet my needs. For the first time in awhile I’m hopeful that there is a solution to my fatigue, inflammation, and pain.
