Meet Doc J
CHER JACOBSEN, MD
I grew up all over this great country, but ultimately chose my beloved mountain West for undergraduate training at Carroll College in Helena, Montana. I attended medical school at Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska, graduating magna cum laude. My family medicine residency was also completed at Creighton University. The United States Navy was gracious enough to pay the high cost of my medical training (since my wonderfully supportive parents finally had to cry uncle at those tuition prices). I was proud to serve years of active duty as a US Navy doctor. There are no greater group of patients than active duty and retired military and their families, but the Navy was sadly unable to allow me to stay in one place as I always dreamed, taking care of my patients for a lifetime. I left my Navy family and (with my long suffering and also wonderfully supportive husband) returned to the beautiful Mountain West to establish a private practice in Post Falls, Idaho. I was very lucky to have stumbled across one of the best ever medical colleagues in Dr. Gibbon, a widely respected doctor whose practice has been a fixture in North Idaho since the 1980s. Together we cared for thousands of patients over the years and now we are both changing our practices to continue caring for our cherished patients in the manner they so deserve.
