Should you need a refill on your prescriptions, don't wait on these guys to get ahold of your pharmacists. It will never happen. Constant phone calls to this office and voice messages left are ignored. The billing office is incompetent. Never pay your co-pay with a credit card. They will retain this information and use it at will. All of a sudden you look at your credit card statement and there it is a charge out of the blue from Memorial Cardiology Associates. Once again, constant phone calls to this office and voice mail left are ignored. Promises to return phone calls are also ignored. Pay for your office visits with a check and notate it is for this business transaction only. These doctors are wonderful if you are willing to put up with the hassles of their office staff.

Pros: The cardiologists in this office are second to none.

Dr. Mike Mitschke has been my cardiologist for over two years now. I have also seen Dr. Randall Morris when Dr. Mitschke was having a day off. I have always been very impressed with these two docs. They appear to be brilliant, they are informative, personable, and spend as much time with you as you need. The wait time in the office is generally short however understanding that cardiac problems are not scheduled and occasionally an emergency happens there has been occasion when I waited a short period of time while the Dr. was taking care of an emergency. It is a secure feeling knowing they would provide the same care for me if I needed it. When a medication was prescribed I was given a FREE sample. Just to make sure the medicine produced the desired result BEFORE I paid for the prescription. The office staff is wonderful, very helpful in fact. I would recommend Dr. Mitschke or Dr. Morris to anyone wanting an EXCEPTIONAL cardiologist. They even call you back in a timely manner.

I had the mispleasure of speaking with Dr Jacobson tonight from my father-in-law's bedside at Memorial City hospital. He was stunningly rude to me. I asked him for an update on our dad's condition (who by the way had been in the hospital for 10 days and was worsening) and he proceeded to tell me how "frustrating" it was for him to have to explain things to me after having talked to and explained things to my husband and mother in law earlier in the day. We are sitting around watching out loved one suffer and HE is frustrated about talking for 5 more minutes! He actually told me that if I didn't know what congestive heart failure meant, that I didn't have suffiecient vocabulary to have a conversation with him. I was stunned. I have never been talked to like this by anyone but to have a "trusted" caretaker be so harsh in such a vulnerable moment was utterly shocking and inexcusable.

If you can help it, avoid this doctor at all costs. There are plenty other capable doctors who also have the bedside manner to deal with patients and their families with the dignity they deserve.

This is the letter I sent to Dr Stuart Jacobson after the appointment my husband had with him:

My husband had an appointment with you today. The time you spent with us gave us a much better understanding of his condition. You are a brilliant doctor. You got our attention as no other doctor has successfully done. You presented, very skillfully the seriousness of his problems ie; weight and risk factors and the stress it is putting on his heart. We now realize the true and sincere commitment that must be made to decrease his risk factors. It is the lifestyle change that can truly mean the difference in longevity.

More than trust, you took the time to answer all our questions, which gave us a much clearer understanding of what the health condition of his heart really is.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We most sincerely appreciate your time in addressing our concerns. We look forward to the next visit in three months and minus 15 pounds.

Sincerely,
Mrs. S.C.

These bad reviews about Dr. Jacobson could not be more FALSE. He is one of the most compassionate, eithical, intelligent physicians I have ever met. And as far as family values the person who said he has none obviously is either jealous or does not know him because he has more family values than any cardiologist I have ever come across. Yes, he is late to clinic often. But most cardiologists are. One of the reasons he is late is because he is TOO compassionate and will not turn someone away if they really need his help. AND he spends more time in the room with his patients than most cardiologist, or any specialist that I have met. And he REALLY cares and listens to them. He also has no problem telling it like it is and some people have a problem with that. So if you want a doctor who is in and out in 5 secs and sugar coats your problems then hes not the doc for you. But if you want a very intelligent, skilled, compassionate doc, who really listens and cares then Dr Stuart Jacobson is your doc.

Dr jacobson is a very negative Doctor, he does not believe. His office staff is also very rude. If you are looking for a compasionate, positive doctor, he is not the one for you, keep looking. Acording to him you are dead one you have multiple problems. He has no family values. Do Not see him...

Unless you are retired and have nothing better to do with your time than to spend 3 hours on a routine office visit, do not see Dr. Jacobson. He is a knowledgable and skilled doctor, but you will wait 2 hours to see him for 5 minutes, and he is in and out during the visit to answer the phone. I switched to another cardiologist after 3 visits, because I have a busy schedule. I know doctors are busy, but some manage time better than others. The front desk staff can be rude, but the nurses were nice.
