Patient Reviews
Mar 24, 2024
Dr. Jacobs and his team at the Surgery Center and the Prince George office saved my vision. I needed emergency surgery for a detached retina. I saw Dr. Khan on a Sunday and Dr. Jacobs called me on a Sunday afternoon to explain everything and ease my concerns. He and his staff educated me along every step of the journey. They answer the phone and call you back promptly if you leave a message. I’m still in my recovery phase but certainly can’t thank them and praise them enough!!!
