Essentia Health welcomes family medicine physician Dr. Eric Jacobson

Dr. Eric Jacobson, a family medicine physician, is excited to welcome new patients at the Essentia Health-52nd Avenue Clinic in Fargo.

“I chose to join Essentia Health for the opportunity to work within a physician-led system that has a track record of quality and compassionate care,” said Dr. Jacobson, who grew up in Bowbells, N.D., and whose wife is from Fargo.

Dr. Jacobson received his medical degree at the University of North Dakota School of Medicine and Health in Grand Forks and completed his residency in family medicine at Altru Health System in Grand Forks.

“I was drawn to family medicine based on the personal connections it allows the physician to have with his or her patients, caring for families and individuals from birth to death,” Dr. Jacobson said. “One of the most rewarding aspects of my work is creating connections with patients and their families as they change and grow. It is a great privilege to provide care for families during these changes, from welcoming a new child to end-of-life care.”
