“Highly professional group of staff and practitioners providing excellent care. They are attentive, always accommodating my busy schedule. The practitioners take their time in explaining treatments. Doctors and staff are very caring. This is exactly what good healthcare is supposed to be. I highly recommend the Center for Diabetes and Endocrine Care.”
– J. Montenegro

“I can’t say enough nice things about this Group. Dr. Jacobson has gotten me back on track after so many other Endocrinologists failed. If I had to chose one thing as to why this Group has been successful it would be that they actually care about their patients. And a big thank you to Dr. Jacobson’s nurse for going above and beyond. P.S. Thank you Val!”
