I saw Dr Jacobs in Buffalo Grove. Dr Jacobs was professional, empathetic, knowledgeable and has over 35 years of medical experience. He is also accomodating--has "Saturday appointments and will provide an Email to send any questions to (which I find very convenient). Seeing him has taken so much worry off my shoulders. He's willing to be medically conservative and will do thorough testing before discussing an in depth treatment plan. He won't automatically jump to morre invasive procedures/treatments unless necessary. I was extremely pleased by my experience so far. I will be going through testing this week. I know that I'm truly in great hands." -

"I was/am a patient of Dr. Jacobs. He helped my husband and I conceive healthy, thriving twins (a son and daughter) via IVF with an egg donor. Dr. Jacobs was by far the kindest, most honest, professional person that I met in my entire fertility journey - which seemed long at about 18 months, but in reality, is rather short compared to what some couples go through. I would highly recommend him if you are looking for a kind person, who shows genuine empathy and caring for you and is very honest about your options. He is of course an excellent physician - as evidenced by our wonderful son and daughter. I would add that he has an excellent rapport with patients - he has a calming presence that is so reassuring when you're going through fertility treatment. If this and excellent medical care are important to you, you should choose Dr. Jacobs as your physician. - anonymous,

"Dr. Jacobs is an excellent doctor and is highly experienced in his field. Dr. Jacobs is empathetic, understanding and caring. I felt he was honest throughout the entire process and nothing came as surprise. The staff at his office were helpful, in particular his 2 nurses Helen and Barbara. They were able to answer my questions in a timely manner. I can say I have gone to their other locations but this location by far was the most consistent with their service. I would recommend Dr. Jacobs to any of my family and friends. It was wonderful to meet a Doctor who is truly passionate about their field and really wanting to help people. You don't see that often enough in the medical field." by M.B,
