Dr. Jacob has been my gastroenterologist since 2005. My life changed dramatically in 2011 after a surgical catastrophe caused me to lose almost all of my small intestines. Since then, he has been responsible for maintaining my vitamin levels, due to malabsorption, through multivitamin infusions, oral medication and monthly lab tests. He is a fantastic physician and human being who treats his patients with great sensitivity and respect. If you are in need of a gastroenterologist Dr. James Jacob is the best choice.

Dr Jacob was very thorough and compassionate of my situation. He took extra time to answer all of my questions and concerns and put my fears at ease. I would send any of my friends or family to see him. He was very kind.
