Best Internist - General Doctor - Primary care physician – My brother in law told me about Dr. Jacobs and I decided o switch doctors and start seeing him. I am glad I did.
His office is well run and his staff is professional and caring.
He is a very smart and caring internist. I was amazed at the connections he made and the health advice he gave me. He spent time with me and made me feel really cared for. He sat down and asked me my history himself. He took me off a prescription medication I was taking and said that a certain supplement and life style change would have the same positive effect as the medication I was taking but without the side effects. He told me about various studies that support that idea and also told me about why the previous doctor may have want dot put me on the medication.
We made decisions together. He gave me info and asked me what I wanted to do. I loved that he didn't just tell me what to do.
HIghly recommend him!
Amazing Internist in Sherman Oaks! – I have been going to Dr. Jacobs for several years now. He is such a great guy and a caring doctor. He slows down and really takes his time to figure out what is going on. I started back pain unlike the last few doctors I went to he did not just give me pain meds and send me off, he took time to ask about what my day is like, my posture during work, during exercise etc until we figured out what could be causing the pain. He suggested several several things I could do to reduce the pain. He takes time to ask about my life and my relationships and help me future out practical ways to reduce my stress/improve my life.
It was my pleasure to have met him. – I've lived in the area for a few years now and have been looking for a great Doctor from the beginning. I'm very apprehensive to start relationships when pertaining to my health, one may say allergic to the thought. Finally, I decided it had been too long and scheduled an appointment with Dr. Jacobs, hoping I had met my match.
The girls were very sweet and inviting; not only on the phone, but when I arrived for my appointment. I waited no time at all to be checked in. Dr. Jacobs was very personable and informative. His demeanor made me feel very comfortable, as well as his approach to holistic treatment. I have never had a Doctor spend so much time as Dr. Jacobs did with me, nor care to listen to every detail and ease my concerns.
Wonderful Physician – Dr. Jacobs is a wonderful physician who is not only intelligent and kind, but also really cares about his patients and their mental and physical well being. I recommend him to all my friends and family. I trust his opinion and have never had any problems or difficulties at his office or with his staff.
I feel fortunate to have him as a DR! – I moved to Studio City a while ago and had been looking for a good Internist/ Primary care physician.
I found Dr. Shahram Jacobs on city search and I agree with the other reviewers. He is a REALLY good doctor! He has great bedside manner and really cares about his patients- IT SHOWS!
Best Internal Medicine Doctor in Sherman Oaks! – Rarely do you find a doctor that is also spiritually attuned. Its obvious that Dr. Shahram Jacobs is extremely up to date in what is going on in the medical field. He knows and tell you about the latest studies and how they relate to you. but the most amazing part is that he knows what is going on in mind-body research and how that plays a role in his patients' healthcare.
Its AMAZING! I just read the Secret and he knows and applies that information to your health.
FYI: Not everyone is into this stuff so if you want to get into it with him, bring it up.
great doctor! – My family and I have been Dr. Jacobs' patient for a while.
He is such a wonderful person and a really caring doctor. He really digs deep into my medical history/life style to figure out exactly what is going on rather than just handing me some meds and telling me to come back.
I really appreciate his effort/time, especially since most of the other good doctors have stopped taking insurances.
Orders expensive tests. – Was a patient for awhile and then he started ordering unnecessary and expensive tests that were not covered completely by insurance. He overcharged them and then slapped me with the remaining bills. Watch out, ask questions about price of procedures because, to me, he's just lining his pockets at your expense and health.
Agreed with earlier reviews that the front desk people leave much to be desired, they are quite rude via the phone and barely aware of your existence when in office. His hiring practices also leave much to be desired.
Beware of this doctor's judgement at all times.
IF YOU SMOKE HE CHARGES MORE!!! – As a doctor, nothing special. How ever i noticed two charges on both visits for "Bevhav. Chng. Smoking", when I called the office, I was told it was a smoking counseling service $40.00 out of pocket each visit 9-10 minutes. WHAT COUNSELING?? Not to mention and additional $40.00 (NOT covered either) for "previous medical counseling" medical info? What kind of doctor does that. I already paid for the $300.00 OFFICE VISIT.
FINALLY on my second visit, the front desk girl reeked of ALCOHOL. I get that people can do whatever, in their spare time...but when you run a "whole body health center" I think your front desk girl should not reek of booze and look that tired.
All in all, ok doctor...but the billing was BS (that was an additional $120.00 out of pocket from me to total that up) above all. I WILL NOT RETURN.
Finally....A Doctor That Cares!! – It is so difficult to find a good primary care physician.
I don't have any serious conditions, but it was important for me to find someone that my family and I could have a relationship with for many years so that he/she could understand my body, my family history and my medical needs - Dr. Jacobs is the one!!
He is patient, understanding, knowledgeable and caring. His office staff are very helpful and it is easy to get them on the phone.
The office is very nice and does not feel cold like some other doctor office can. The parking is easy and the wait is not long.
I normally would keep a good thing like this to myself, but this is too important in people's lives - Do yourself a favor and go to Dr. Jacobs for your primary care needs.
