“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.”
