Dr. Brad performed the most thorough checkup and review of my medical history I have ever experienced.” –V.J.
Dr. Brad is gifted with a unique combination of exceptional competence and compassion, and I am grateful he is my doctor! He can also work magic… A couple of months ago, I went to see him after a long trip and weeks of feeling terrible with an acute cold, complete exhaustion, and a plugged ear. I felt that nothing helped to relieve the discomfort. All I wanted was to be in bed, but I dragged myself to see him. In his calm and reassuring way, he proceeded to give me a treatment including cranial massage and acupuncture. He spent over an hour with me. After the treatment, my ear cleared, I felt a surge of energy, and I left his office feeling cured! Having Dr. Brad as my physician makes me feel safe, well cared for, and feeling I am in the best possible hands. Dr. Brad embodies the best of integrative medicine, and is also a delightful human being!” –R.A.
When I first met Dr. Bradly Jacobs, I was new to San Francisco and struggling with major health issues. In fact, I had plans to return to NYC one month later for major surgery. This was a very trying time for me, but I found great comfort in my work with Dr. Jacobs. During my initial consultation, Dr. Jacobs interviewed me for well over an hour to take stock of my entire medical history. It was instantly clear to me that Dr. Jacobs was not only interested in my particular health issue; he was interested in my wellbeing as a person.
Initially, our work together focused on my health needs during and after recovery from my first surgery. Unfortunately, I did not recover well and spent the next nine months in and out of UCSF for multiple surgeries. Regardless, Dr. Jacobs was with me every step of the way. He was always available at a moment’s notice; this was extremely important to me as I was new to the city and still building a network of support. Dr. Jacobs was always available to help make decisions about treatments, make referrals, and follow up with all doctors. I felt I had the team I needed in place to be able to fully heal.
Finally recovered from my many surgeries, Dr. Jacobs and I are currently refining a game plan for my complete health and wellness. It goes without saying that Dr. Jacobs takes an integrative approach to treatment and does so with tremendous care, thoughtfulness, and thoroughness. I would recommend Dr. Jacobs with the highest regard.” –M.L.
For years I considered myself to be an active middle-aged man, slightly overweight with ‘normal’ signs of aging. Since I had no official disease and traditional medical practices were not focused on my underlying health, I was unaware that I was on a fast track toward either a debilitating condition or a bad final outcome. However, when Dr. Brad reviewed my well-being from an integrative and comprehensive perspective, it became clear that I was actually 40 pounds overweight, had liver function problems, and markedly elevated cholesterol. Previously, all of my doctors told me that I needed medications because my last trial at changing my diet didn’t reduce my cholesterol sufficiently. However, when Dr. Brad and his team tailored a diet and supplement program for me and upped the cardio in my existing exercise regimen, the results turned out to be extraordinary. I lost all 40 pounds, cut my cholesterol by 50% (such that I will not need medication), and my liver function has returned to normal. I feel educated, energized, and thankful for Dr. Brad’s innovative multi-pronged approach. The benefits of self-care that I have learned from working with Dr. Brad have created extraordinary results in my life.” –J.W.
