Was a great experience with doctors and nurses everytime I go there

He didn't resolve my issue. I have a splinter I wanted removed but he didn't. He didn't, "want to make me bleed." He picked at the surface with forceps and that was all. He told me to soak it in epson salt and let it work its way out. So now I have a bill and still have a splinter. He told me to come back if it gets infected. I feel like Dr Jacobs wants to do the absolute minimum before he retires.

We appreciated the doctor called back when he decided he would like to know little more before he prescribed medication.

Yep, the nurse did a very diligent job, very friendly, very nice. The doctor did a very diligent job, very friendly, very nice. I can't fault them in any way. They give me a call up on my blood test and that was very courteous and very kind. So I can't say enough good about. ... Thank you much. Bye.

The nurse seems to lack empathy or even any care at all regarding patients and is only interested in symptoms, not patient care. There is no rapport building at all and I honestly dread when she is the nurse on duty. Patient history is important as it pertains to symptoms but, on more than this visit (even those visits with my children), she will cut off what is being communicated with an abrupt and annoyed 'What are the symptoms', she then inputs them and leaves the room after stating the doctor will be in shortly. Dr. Jacobs and Kaelyn are fantastic, however and I appreciate their attention and friendliness.

I had never met this gentleman, before and I really really liked him. I thought he was very thoroughly he read in the computer, and mentioned a lot of different things that happened in my past, and I felt like he's really on top of things, and knew what he was doing. And I wouldn't hesitate a minute to go see him again, and I always like the receptionist. She's been there for a little while and the new nurse was just wonderful to very friendly and very thorough and I had a real pleasant experience with all of them. So just I know I go again to him. So, thank you. Bye.

Dr. Jacobs is a true blessing to the community. Really wish he I had more office days, he is the only competent mind inside that clinic anymore and the only one throughout Pella Regional that we trust.
