When Dr. Jacobs decided to go with MDVIP and leave his Cary practice, I knew I had to stay with him. Paying the fee has been valuable to me with some of the health problems that I have experienced over the years. Dr. Jacobs and his team have always provided their valuable time that I need to exam each and every health issue. Dr. Jacobs and his nursing staff (Cheryl and Maggie) are AWESOME… See more

My doctor was aware of my hernia. He had referred me to a specialist but I had not acted on the recommendation for surgery. At 11:00 one Saturday night the hernia blew out and it was very painful. I pushed it back in, as the doctor had done. My wife called him and he picked up the phone immediately. He walked me through what to do and called me the next morning to check on me and to plan for… See more

Dr. Jacobs listens!
That's all you need to know.
He pays attention.
He spends the time to get to know how you are feeling both physically and mentally.
He should be the model for all doctors. If all physicians took the time to listen, people would be healthier, live longer, feel better about themselves.
Dr. Jacobs took me on as a patient after a scary ordeal with DVT's which my previous doctor mismanaged. Dr. Jacobs provided expert care when I needed it most. He is both incredibly knowledgeable and compassionate, and I am privileged to call him my doctor. He and his wonderful staff now care for my entire family.
