I have been a patient of Dr.Jacobs for over 20 years,,Over that time period he has discovered, treated, and has removed several skin cancers from me. I can clearly state that if it weren’t for him I probably would not be alive today..His staff has always been the most professional and his clinical environment is always immaculate. I would recommend anyone with dermatological issues from psoriasis to melanoma to consult with Dr. Michael Jacobs.

I had the best experience with Dr. Jacobs. Went to see two doctors who misdiagnosed a rash I had on my ankle. Dr. Jacobs identified it within seconds, prescribed a medication and it started to clear up two days later. The staff is wonderful and I would go back anytime.

For over 30 years, Dr. Jacobs has treated me. He is cordial, friendly and listens. Most recently, I had a severe case of bedbug bites that I got in Portugal. Literally within minutes of texting him with photos, he corrected the diagnosis I'd been given at a local hospital clinic and told me the medicines I needed. While I saw two doctors in Europe, it was Dr. Jacobs who helped me control my anxiety. For over three weeks, he communicated frequently with me - reconfirming what I was doing was correct and reassuring me the bites would get better, Dr. Jacobs is my go to! He is thoughtful, direct and clear in conveying his diagnosis. I am grateful to him for his care and appreciate all he has done for me over the years.

I have been a patient of Dr. Jacob's for over a year and although I went for one procedure, I kept coming due to their outstanding and attentive service. Their facility is very clean and the staff is very professional. Their equipment is top of the line. I've had hair removal and lasers done that was totally painless. I highly recommend this facility.
Too Modest to Publicize Himself

The wonderful work the Doctor did restoring a freshness to my face and neck was enough to convince 5 women pictured in The Social Register to make appointments of their own. Whether socially, for a polished image at work, or for health and wellness to take personal care seriously, this is the doctor to visit. NOT one who sells her services on TV talk shows. This office is not a Botox factory assembly line. When comparing notes, we women agreed that each was treated uniquely as specialized treatments were matched with care and a sure sense of what would be pleasing and successful with each patient. May I note as well that there are quite a number of men in the office seeking treatment as well!. This is a board certified physician who teaches his skills at Cornell. It goes without saying that his professional demeanor causes a patient to trust his judgement.
