Stephen Jacobs, MD

Pediatrician

I’m Stephen Jacobs and I am excited to be joining the InterMed pediatric team at Yarmouth.

Prior to joining InterMed, I practiced pediatrics in Lewiston for 33 years. I worked as an inpatient hospitalist pediatrician, staffed a level 2 Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, directed a developmental evaluation clinical, and taught medical students and Family Medicine residents their core pediatrics. Throughout, I maintained a general pediatric practice. I am particularly interested in developmental and behavioral pediatrics.

My general medical approach and philosophy are to ask how I can help, listen carefully to what is shared, practice meticulous medicine, educate patients/parents/families, and partner in decision making. To educate is to empower and allow others to make informed choices and decisions.

I have three adult children. I am fortunate that they all live within an hour of me. All three are involved in some aspect of healthcare!

I enjoy being active. Running, biking, swimming, hiking, golf, triathlons, and skiing are all recreations I favor. I love reading, flower gardening, riding my motorcycle, playing piano, and solving crossword puzzles with the help of my cat, Calypso, who slyly tries to sit on the crossword and block my view!

I look forward to being part of the excellent healthcare team at InterMed and providing pediatric healthcare in Yarmouth.
