“I’m an African American who at the age of 40 was told that I have fibroids. There were about 10 of them ranging in sizes from a small pea to a golf ball. My OB/GYN offered me literature on the Mirena Contraception but I was not interested in that, so she stated as long as pain is tolerable nothing had to be done. However, as the years passed the pain became very uncomfortable and at last annual exam we discussed a hysterectomy. My uterus had increased to the size of a 32-36 week pregnant woman. This is why the pain was so uncomfortable. I would bleed so much that 2 pads every 4 hours could not handle the flow. I started using POISE pads to handle the flow. My OB/GYN gave me the name of 2 doctors. I chose Dr. Jacob. When I came to his office, I was ‘IMPRESSED’ with the staff! It felt like a FAMILY which made me feel good and at that moment I knew I was in the right place! Dr. Jacob told me I was his ‘MOST COMPLEX’ case due to the uterus now being 37-40 weeks in size. He assured me that he would have to get inside of my body to determine if it will be done with a robot and… It was a TRUE SUCCESS! I would highly recommend Dr. Jacob. He is the ‘BEST’!!
