The doctor did nothing to help me with my issue. Instead, he told me that if in a month my problem was still happening, then I should come back in. The appointment was a complete waste of time [...]

I only went to Dr. Jacobs twice. The second visit he went over my MRI with me. He was very informative. A note about his nurse. She should never ask a patient "you weigh ??? pounds when her husband is there. I'm fat and I don't like it. Also one of the checkout receptionist ask me my weight in front of other people. It was for my appointment for my MRI.
