There is no publicly available rating for this care provider for one or more of the following reasons:
  1. He or she does not see patients in the outpatient clinic setting.
  2. He or she sees patients, but has not yet received the minimum number of Patient Satisfaction Reviews. To be eligible for display, we require a minimum of 30 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.
  3. He or she is a community provider, not a Geisinger-employed provider. Community providers tend to see patients in their own private outpatient practices, which we do not survey.

dr Jacobs has shown concern for me over the years . He knows who I am despite all the patients he has . He is easy to talk and in the past he has advocated for my needs with the insurance company

I felt good about having my wife sit in with me to listen to the Dr. Instructions.

I came to the appointment with two issues, one more serious. Unfortunately both of us forgot to address the less serious health issue which remains an ongoing issue.
Dec 26, 2015
This was an EXCELLENT appointment. I had several different issues going on, and wanted to talk to Dr. Jacobs about how they each effected each other. He was extremely helpful and put me at ease.

I would have to say hands down that Dr Brian Jacobs is the best doctor I have ever been to see. He's very intelligent and extremely caring and patient. He even takes the time to walk you out and makes sure you have everything you need. I'm beyond impressed!

Felt very comfortable through the entire visit!

Dr. Jacob's is great. Is friendly and thorough but doesn't waste a lot of time, mine or his. He's the reason I've taken the time to do the survey. He does an excellent job.

This was an initial visit with Dr. Jacobs as my new primary care doctor. We had a very productive visit. He was wonderful and very proactive concerning some immediate medical needs.
Nov 17, 2015
He is the all time best doctor. He is highly knowledgeable, remembers my issues, and he really cares. A superb doctor.
Nov 4, 2015
I highly recommend dr Jacobs. He has always taken the time to let me explain the issue, asks questions and listens to the response. It shows that he cares about his patients health and wellbeing. On this visit he walked me to the door of the waiting area talking about my new baby.
Oct 30, 2015
dr jacobs is the best.
Oct 27, 2015
My concerns are more related to the medical system than this particular doctor.
Oct 27, 2015
I arrived with a list of ailments for investigation. In the past, in other health care organizations, I have been told, "one complaint per visit." Dr. Jacobs dealt with each of at least four listed concerns completely and thoroughly.

I wish I was told that the cough medicine prescribed had Codeine in I would have asked for something else. I took one dose which came right back up and how have a $36.00 bottle of cough medicine which I will not use.
Oct 14, 2015
This was the best experience I have ever had with a doctor. He took the time to listen, asked questions, and make sure that my concerns were addressed. I had only seen him once or twice previously a few years ago and yet he made an effort to remember and ask how my daughters were. Again, this was by far the best doctors office visit (of any kind) I have ever had.
Oct 12, 2015
Dr. Brian Jacobs is very respectful and listened to every word I said.
Oct 6, 2015
I felt included in the treatment and well cared for; he took his time to explain options to me.

Dr. Jacobs is a great physcian and I am so very glad to be under his care. He communicates well and I truly believe he wants my quality of life to be the best it can be. I have recommended him to several family members and acquaintences. I hope he stays with Geisinger for many years. Brian Jacobs is really REALLY good at his job.
Sep 21, 2015
I greatly appreciated Dr. Jacobs' interest in making sure that I was ready to take on the challenge of an extended camping trip.
Sep 12, 2015
Dr. Jacob's is an amazing physician. He is friendly, shows the appropriate amount of concern, and most importantly is thorough/knows what he is talking about/doing.
Sep 9, 2015
A good experience with a friendly, helpful doctor.
Sep 8, 2015
Love having Dr. Jacobs as my PCP. Friendly, easy to talk to, listens to all your concerns and what you have to say. Always asks if there is anything else he can help with or concerns after main issue is taken care of. Encourages communication via My Geisinger.

Great dr. great "bedside" manner.
June 29, 2015
Dr. Jacobs and his staff are always extremely friendly, fast and efficient. There is never a wait, and never passive aggressive service from staff/nurses who seem disgruntled as I have seen in past medical offices.
June 26, 2015
The care I have received from Dr. Jacobs and his team has always been "very good" on all my visits (over the past 3 years).

quite exceptional doctor - very thorough, good listener with eye contact. Explained everything to me.
May 22, 2015
Dr. Jacobs is one of the only doctors I have had that shows a genuine interest and concern for my issues and health and who actively listens to my concerns and makes me feel heard. He does not brush aside or negate my health concerns like my previous primary doctor. I am glad I made this switch.
May 19, 2015
I have already recommended this care provider on several occasions.
