Dr. Jennifer Jacob, M.D.

"As a pediatrician, it's an honor to have the opportunity to care for children and families. I believe my first job is to listen to a caregiver’s concerns and try to fully understand each family’s unique perspective. I like to take time to be sure that we are making decisions together. It's very important to me that families feel secure and confident at the end of their visit to the office. I look forward to meeting new families and getting to know their story.

I worked in the emergency department for 11 years caring for sick and injured children. These experiences remind me of the importance of prevention by maintaining health and wellness. I also feel that a strong, reliable relationship with a primary care doctor is an important part of growing up healthy and happy. I aim for open and clear communication and a relationship that my patients can trust. It is a joy to watch children grow and we are lucky as pediatricians to be a part of this process!"
