Other interests

Dr. Jacobs is also an accomplished musician, having learned the accordion (and self-taught on the piano) starting from the age of 7. In fact, he became a professional musician and worked on weekends so that he could successfully pay for college and medical school. A man of many interests, Dr. Jacobs participates in tennis, squash, and racquetball as well as swimming, sailing, and scuba diving. He also enjoys landscape gardening, portrait photography, and ballroom dancing and is an avid and knowledgeable football and baseball fan. Theater and the arts are his passions and fortunately, they are readily available and diverse in the New York area. And in his spare time, Dr. Jacobs is writing his first fiction novel.

A good listener

Most importantly, Dr. Jacobs is a good listener. He is easily able to converse with his patients, relaxing them and carefully eliciting from them what their aesthetic goals may be. Then, armed with his extensive knowledge of what is surgically possible and exercising superb aesthetic judgment, he is able to devise an individual plan for improvement that is unique for every patient – and which may or not require surgery. Best of all, he possesses the rare ability to make his hands create what his mind has conceived.
