Dr. Jacobs’ background and expertise make him unique in the field of medicine. In addition to being one of the world’s foremost experts on neuroendocrinology, he has extensive clinical and research experience in behavioral neurology, giving him a perspective on brain disorders that few others can provide.
While most neuroendocrinologists focus on scientific research, Dr. Jacobs operates one of the few clinical practices in the field, providing much-needed relief to patients whose hormones are adversely impacting their behavior, cognition and general health.
Over the years, Dr. Jacobs has diagnosed and successfully treated many patients with catamenial epilepsy (seizures occurring in phase with the menstrual cycle), emotional disorders brought on by premenstrual and menopausal influences, anxiety resulting from late onset congenital adrenal hyperplasia, and a range of disorders involving the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland.
Dr. Jacobs is also an expert on disorders affecting the mind and memory, including dementias such as Alzheimer’s disease, Lewy Body disease, Pick’s disease and vascular dementia, as well as non-progressive cognitive and comportmental disorders resulting from traumatic brain injury, temporal lobe epilepsy, attention deficit disorder and other problems.
He is an accomplished lecturer and author on all of these subjects.
