About Dr. Jacobs
Dr. Jacobs is an internationally recognized rhinologist, whose interest in nasal and sinus disease dates back to 1985 during an era of revolutionary developments in the treatment of these disorders.

In addition, the availability of additional medical therapies has profoundly enhanced rhinologists capabilities to control the disease process either with or without surgery.
