About Greta Jacobsen, MD

Dr. Greta Jacobsen grew up on the Westside, attending Santa Monica High School and later completing her undergraduate degree at Harvard. As a literature major studying the American transcendentalists, she was moved by poet Walt Whitman’s compassion for individual soldiers in his tireless work as a hospital volunteer during the Civil War. An emergency surgery during her junior year led to her own hospitalization, and she recalls how vulnerable she felt as a patient while critical events unfolded. This ignited her desire to pursue medical knowledge and also served as a powerful lesson on
valuing the patient experience.

An MSc in the History of Medicine at the University of Oxford con rmed her decision to attend medical school, as well as cultivated a love for the UK. She
completed her medical degree at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland and worked nearly two years as a physician in the UK’s National Health Service (NHS). She completed her U.S. residency in Family Medicine at Saint Agnes Medical Center in Fresno, California, where her clinic and hospital served a diverse patient population across the Central Valley.

Dr. Jacobsen values close communication with her patients, seeking to get to know them as individuals and helping them to navigate a complex healthcare system. In her spare time, she loves getting out on the soccer feld or the tennis court for a competitive match, singing (especially with her four sisters), exploring cities on foot and, most of all, spending time with her family.

Dr, Jacobsen was amazing. She prescribed exactly what I needed for major poison oak skin issues. I'm all better now in just a few days! Please thank her immensely for me. I could not be happier with Providence Urgent care!

Dr. Jacobsen is incredible. I was surprised that she spent as much time with me as she did, and listened so attentively. She was respectful of my choice not to go a more natural route whenever possible and addressed my concerns about perimenopause very supportively and proactively. I felt heard and respected. Her bedside manner is perfect.

Dr. Jacobsen took time and listened to my concerns. I felt taken seriously by a medical practitioner which has not happened in a long time! She also had novel insights into my condition and I am looking forward to a long-term relationship.

This was an exploratory visit for me because I was changing my primary internist doctor to Dr. Greta Jacobsen. I was very pleased with her wellness check on me. She and her staff are professional, dedicated and caring with patients.
