He has been performing LASIK surgery in the Roseville office since 2009. Dr. Jacob is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, and the American Medical Association. He also served on the ALTA Ophthalmologic Society committee for a couple of years as secretary and treasurer.
Dr. Jacob is proud to be a Loyola graduate all the way as it was his primary choice in education for all three degrees. When he is not working, Dr. Jacob loves watching sports with his family, especially the Bears and the Bulls as they are from his home town, Chicago. Dr. Jacob has been married for 13 years and has two children, a boy and a girl.
