Dr. Jacobs received his Bachelor of Science in biology from the University of Kentucky in Lexington. He earned his medical degree from the University of Louisville. He is board certified by the American Board of Emergency Medicine.
Dr. Jacobs chose this specialty because he really enjoys taking care of every type of patient in the fast paced setting of the operating room.
“Healthcare is a team based field and I feel this fact omnipresent in the operating room,” he explained. “As an anesthesiologist I take great pride in coming together with talented and skilled surgeons, nurses and OR techs with the singular goal of taking excellent care our surgical patients.”
Dr. Jacobs considers Dr. Loren Ledford of Ashland, Ky his most influential mentor.
“Dr. Ledford taught me that the practice of medicine is a sacred and challenging field,” he said. “He taught me you have to approach each day with humor and humility and of course the patient always comes first.”
Dr. Jacobs said his patients can expect to meet him on the day of surgery with a high level of professionalism, a commitment to excellence and a smile on his face.
He chose PMC because he did a rotation here as a medical student and loved his experience.
“During my rotation I got to know the great team of healthcare professionals here and the amazing patient population. The patients in our community are kind, warm and giving and it is my pleasure and honor to serve them.”
When he is not caring for patients, Dr. Jacobs enjoys spending time with family and friends. He also enjoys traveling, working out and listening to podcasts.
