Dr, Jacobs was my doctor long before he joined MDVIP. He is a wonderful, caring person, as well as Doctor. It means so much to me to know that if I need him anytime day or night that I can call him and he immediately responds. Dr. Jacobs and his staff seem like family to me.

Dr. Jacobs, you give me hope and confidence that my future health will be as trouble free and comfortable as can be expected. This all brings me a lot of peace.

Dr. Jacobs has earned my total confidence. I trust his skills, his recommendations and his intentions. I trust him completely. I do not give my trust easily. Jim is one of the very few people that have ever impressed me to that degree.

from Richard March 23, 2017 for James W. Jacobs, MD

My doctor, Jim Jacobs, MD. Is an outstanding doctor. I have never experienced a more thorough physical as well as attention to detail in every aspect of my health.

I owe my life to him as he immediately… See more

I think Dr. Jacobs (and his entire staff for that matter) are amazingly responsive and consistently deliver a gold standard quality of care. Besides all that...they are nice!!

from Shirley in NC March 10, 2016 for James W. Jacobs, MD

My health was receiving half hearted attention by doctors and specialist. It was time to find my own solution. My sister in San Diego has seen a MDVIP for years and encouraged me to research locally. Best sister-advice ever! Dr Jacobs has listened and taken time answer all my questions which makes me feel we are a team.

from Charles ( Woody) in NC February 9, 2016 for James W. Jacobs, MD

It is so nice to call up your doctor and get in to see him that day if you really need to or just get that call back telling you just what to do for your condition. Also to have his staff talk to you as if you were the only person they needed to help that day. Also not getting one of those machines to talk to. It makes me feel as though I am living back in the 60's when your Dr. made… See more

from Mark in NC February 17, 2015 for James W. Jacobs, MD

Since becoming a patient of Dr Jacob's, I have gained a new understanding of the importance of nutrition to my overall health. I have incorporated more whole foods in my diet, and less processed food. I have lessened my meat and dairy intake as part of this lifestyle change. I have also become more aware of the importance of daily execercise, through the fitbit group that I have joined… See more
