I cannot say enough wonderful things about Inverness Dermatology. From the moment I walked in everyone was warm and welcoming. I felt right at home. Dr. Jacobson listened to my requests and knocked it out of the park with her suggestions and my results were more than I hoped for. Both girls in the room with me were so incredibly kind. I would recommend them to absolutely anyone and everyone. Seriously, go see them you won't regret it!!!

My Coolsculpting experience was top notch. Kinsey made me comfortable and the procedure was over before I knew it. My results exceeding expectations!

I've been going to ID&L since I was in my early teens. It was a great experience then and has continued to be for all these years. Mary Beth is a God send!

Thank you to all who are so professional, calm and patient, yet easy to talk to and making time to listen when you have patients waiting. I LOVE you all and thanks for taking such good care of me!!!

—Marsha F.

I have been interested in Coolsculpting for a long time but was nervous to pull the trigger. After losing about 25 pounds, I still had areas that I was not happy with and decided to get a consult. I treated my love handles and stomach. The results are truly amazing. Props to Mary Beth and Kinsey for making this an easy and painless experience.

—William R., Tuscaloosa

We love you Inverness Dermatology keep doing what you're doing!! :)

—Katie C.

There's only one thing to say about Inverness Dermatology: outstanding!

—Rusty E.

I have seen both Dr. Marks and Dr. OConner and I think they are both really thorough and kind doctors. I really feel cared about at this practice. They are both helping me with my psoriasis and I am getting laser for this which is actually covered by my insurance. The staff there have been accommodating and easy to work with for my appointments.

—MJK, Vestavia, AL

Best Botox in town! Hands Down by Dr. O’Connor! Mary Beth treats my acne and she is great too!

—Cheryl, Hoover, AL

I have had laser from Dr. Marks and Meredith for my wrinkles and sunspots. I am thrilled. The Skin Laser was amazing for wrinkles and the BBL has made the veins and redness on my neck and chest 99% better. Also treated my arms and hands for sunspots since I am a teacher and I feel like my hands make me look older.

—Anne W., Mountain Brook, AL

Meredith Gore is my son’s PA and she is caring, thorough and kind. I have also seen Dr. Marks and Dr. Beckum for my skin problems and they are great, too! The staff seems to really care about the patients and the doctors usually run on time.

—Patricia S.

Dr. Marks is my dermatologist and she is very thorough and has taken a dangerous mole off of my leg which ended up needing surgery. Dr. Jacobson did the surgery and she made it very easy and made me very comfortable. The office is clean, comfortable and well organized. The staff are VERY CARING. I was taken care of by Cole during my surgery and he was friendly and very competent. I had a question a few days after my surgery so I emailed the office and was called within a few minutes by one of the staff members.

Meredith has been doing SkinPen for some scars on my face for an accident. It is helping with my scars and the treatments do not hurt! I have also had coolsculpting for my bra fat and arms and I am AMAZED with the results. TOTALLY WORTH IT!

—Katie S., Prattville

I honestly can't say enough good things about Dr. Jacobson. She's just so knowledgeable that it's easy to feel confident with any diagnosis she gives. Not only is that 5 stars in itself but she is also very kind and considerate. She really went out of her way to help me when I ran into a problem and I couldn't be more appreciative for all her efforts! Intelligent, kind and fast; what more could you want!?

—Kerry Flynn

I feel like I get the best skin care available at Inverness Dermatology. Dr. Jacobson is my doctor but I've seen others at the practice and am just as pleased. The office staff is awesome!

—Gina White

Whenever I come here; Mary Beth would always be who I'd end up seeing. She's absolutely enthusiastic, kind, patient, & knows exactly what I want to improve or get taken cared of when I'm there. Let's just say it's been about 2 years & id always end up going here because of her work. And my last appointment with her was immaculate!

—Vivian Nguyen

The staff is super friendly! Everyone was very welcoming. I was seen on time and was in and out in no time! I will definitely be coming back here for all my dermatology needs.

—Gabby Rice

Wow! What a genuine, comfortable experience I had today! I called this morning hoping to get an new patient appointment for my rash. The receptionist was accommodating and was able to squeeze me in! The nurse and PA were so kind to me and treated me the best care. Then Dr. Jacobson walks in and I immediately felt so comfortable with her! She truly cares about her patients and her presence "gives you a hug". Wonderful, painless experience… Thank you Dr. "J"!

—Maggie McCoy

I had a cyst removed and the staff and doctors was amazing! I was very nervous and they answered all my questions. From the moment you walk in you feel welcome and well taken care of.

—Cathy Green

Good day. I have been receiving treatment at Inverness Dermatology & Laser now for close to a year. I have had Acne and cystic related skin issues since I was a teen and still have battled as an adult. Resulting there in as well in scarring, some discoloration and rough textured skin that I have long wanted to address. After seeing many different providers over the years with little result thanks to the patient, sympathetic, kind care of Dr. Jacobson and her team I have had vast improvement in managing new formations and even more so in the area of corrective scar treatment. Upon initial consultation Dr Jacobson made a number of recommendations from surgical to injectable in a series of steps that has resulted in continued, vast improvement. Smoother skin, less unsightly marks coupled with proper care and follow up have made a tremendous difference in my appearance. I am a rather anxious person when it comes to this condition and I could not have found a better Physician than Dr. Jacobson that was not only empathetic of how I felt but patient enough to work through it with me. I would and am recommending anyone reading this that has a similiar skin related issue they have wanted to address or forbthat matter any other dermatological issue to go see them. They are friendly and polite and will take the time to listen and assist in recomending the best treatment course and not add on unnecessary procedures at wasteful costs. Thank you all for your assistance it is sincerely appreciated! Grazie!

—Jason Morganti

Dr. Jacobson is awesome! So is Liz, and the staff! So thrilled with my Kybella. Love Inverness Dermatology!!

—Meredith Ledbetter

Love it! Very professional. Affordable and Dr. Beckum is amazing!

—Christalle Suttles

Super nice staff! Visited the office for a crazy rash- had an allergic reaction! I was seen in 20 minutes and didn't even have an appt. Great experience- super nice office.

—Candace Scroggins

I absolutely love Dr. Jacobson. My new lips are everything I've ever hoped for!

—Lauren Fuller

Great experience. Brought back quickly. Worked with my schedule. Easy to make an appointment. Great staff. Thank you!

—Rick Williams

Dr. Beckum & the staff are great! They are great with kids.

—Amanda Harris

Dr. Jacobson has been my dermatologist for about 10 years. She did a CO2 laser treatment on me in January of this year. Less than 2 months later, I'm at a meeting seeing co-workers that haven't seen me in a year. I received three compliments on my skin while at breakfast! She has suggested that I follow up and maintain with the Forever Young BBL. Im not sure my skin has ever looked so healthy and I'm asking myself why I didn't do it sooner?

—Patti Jayne Thomas

I have been a patient for a few years and highly recommend Inverness Dermatology. I have seen both the doctors and the PA, Mary Beth and have had great experiences in all of my visits. I feel that they are thorough in the evaluation of my skin checks. I am so excited about my cool sculpting results. They are great and getting better each day.

—Sharon Buczek

Had a great experience. I highly recommend them.

—Blake Snider

Dr. Jacobson, Mary Beth Templin, and the whole staff are just awesome.

I found Inverness Derm through a trusted family member who had experience as a patient with this practice and have now been a happy patient for about 5 years.

Before switching to Inverness Derm, I had been a patient at a large dermatology practice in the Highland Park neighborhood. After many years at that practice, my "Dr" would still come in the examination room and introduce herself to me as though we had never met before even though I have been seeing her every 6 months for several years!!! Between that unbelievably impersonal attitude and couple of other things I left and found Inverness Derm.

Once there, I couldn't believe the difference in company (or practice) culture.

The staff at the other practice was rude and very aloof... I think they were suffering under the illusion that they were God's gift to medical administration or something. It always felt like we patients were cattle being herded through the office. Not pleasant at all!

Anyway, the staff at Inverness has always been very helpful, friendly, courteous, and prompt. I'd also like to say that the friendliness has been very consistent over the 5 years that I've been a patient.

On my first visit, I saw Dr. Jacobson. She took a good amount of time speaking with me about my condition and gave me the recommendation she said she would "give to her niece". I appreciated her candor and knowing that she was giving me the same advice that she'd give to her family. Every visit I've had with Dr. Jacobson has been very positive. She's great.

I've also seen the P.A., Mary Beth Templin, a number of times. She's very thorough as well, and very friendly. I've always felt very comfortable under her care.

As I said above, the whole staff is great. I've been late to a few appointments over the time, and they've always graciously worked with me. Also, I've never had to wait over 20 minutes or so to be seen. Bottom line: Inverness Derm is great. If you need a dermatologist in Birmingham, this is the place!

—Lauren K

Been going here over a couple years great staff and have seen both doctors and they were great!! I wouldn't recommend going anywhere else! I have never been taken late for appt here

—Chad S

Friendly staff. Clean, not pushy to add on services, etc. Dr. Jacobson is effieienct, friendly and makes you feel comfortable. (As one can undressed getting your body checked!)

—Elizabeth F.

Been coming to this place for 2 years for my psoriasis. I think they are top notch. Front desk is friendly and doctors (I've seen Dr Jacobsen and Dr Marks) are caring and more importantly know how to get you better.

—Lisa S.

Dr. Beckum took great care of me at my visit. She was thorough, attentive and kind. No wonder she was voted Top Doctor in Birmingham! Also, the office staff are very efficient and friendly.


Love it! Very professional. Affordable and Dr. Beckum is amazing!


My first visit to Inverness Dermatology & Laser was because my wife insisted I go with her. I reluctantly made an appointment and Dr. Jacobson found a melanoma on my scalp during a routine exam. It was removed and was in an early stage so it had not metastasized. During subsequent exams over the past three years, two squamous cell carcinomas and one basal cell carcinoma have been found early and removed. I have also seen Dr. Marks and Mary Beth Helms, PA-C and they are competent, professional and caring. I simply will not go anywhere else. The staff is courteous and efficient. Appointments are almost always on time. This is the best run medical practice I have ever experienced. I consider myself very fortunate to be a patient of Inverness Dermatology & laser.

—Jon, Tuscaloosa, AL

I have been blessed to know Dr. Jacobson for over two decades; as a peer, as a teacher, and as a patient myself. It is my priviledge to offer my highest recommendation on her behalf! As a peer, i knew she was always at the top of our medical school class. She has established a respected practice, who unlike many dermatologist practices, is still willing to care for and see all patients despite their insurance. She gives her extra time freely to help educate primary care doctors about dermatology and volunteers regularly at our local free clinic. Perhaps most importantly, she is just an amazingly brillant dermatologist in whom, as a patient, I have complete confidence! You might never know all the brains that reside behind her beautiful face and warm smile, but watch out!!! Consider yourself very fortunate to have found Dr. Jacobson!

—H. Gonzalez, MD, MPH, FAAFP

I have been a patient of Inverness Dermatology since their office opened. My experience has only been positive. The professionalism displayed by everyone in the office is a standard that I look for and receive every time I visit the office. I feel very confident that I am receiving the most accurate and best medical service available and have full trust in their decisions to address my medical needs. Pre-cancer and cancer cells have been removed and this gives me peace of mind that the staff is very knowledgeable and provides the best treatment. I enjoy the positive atmosphere that is always displayed by all personnel. I would not consider another Dermatology office for my medical needs. They are simply the best.

—James, Birmingham, AL

Dr. Jacobson and her staff are awesome! No matter what the purpose of your visit to Inverness Derm, you can count on receiving excellent care from the physicians, PA and office staff.

—Helen, Birmingham, AL

The staff at Inverness Dermatology is always so positive and friendly. Dr. Jacobson always takes time to ensure that my needs are being met. I don’t feel like I’m just another patient but more like a family member. Thanks Dr. J. You are WONDERFUL!

—Dee, Birmingham, AL

I love Dr. Jacobson! I went for Botox first fall 2012, also had under eye filler (has lasted 9 months and made me look 10 years younger!) my Botox I repeated approx 6 mos later - I was amazed it lasted so long bc I went to a surgeon (who advertises heavily in BHAM) I won't mention name but my Botox only lasted about 3 months and was performed by a nurse (I've found out that's not the way it's supposed to be done!) the surgeon also did my implants and I was pleased but I would never go to anyone else for Botox or fillers! Dr Jacobson is very friendly and takes time to recommend the best filler for differing areas (I had filler in my lips, too - restylane, but under my eyes I think something else was used?) I heard some people may dilute their Botox - thus the differing last times- I would HIGHLY recommend Inverness Dermatology- bc this Botox lasts longer than any I've used! Plus with the coupons I saved hundreds of dollars- she is always booked up so waiting 6 weeks isn't unusual, still I trust them, everyone in office is good, she is on TIME - no waiting which is rare with MD's in my experience!! I have never seen better prices and I think I read she is one of the top docs in B'ham!! (btw- I am not a personal friend or have any connection other than client & very rarely write reviews- no one asked me to do this, either.)I just lucked up buying a groupon and will drive from Mtn brook to Inverness rather than change to anyone else! She's truly the best I've ever seen!!

—Alison W.

Such a wonderful staff! My nurse, Alison, did a wonderful job making me feel welcome & talking about my skin issues. The PA, Mary Beth, is hands down one of the sweetest people! She did such a good job explaining my situation and how it will be treated. I didn’t have to wait more than 10 minutes to be seen. All around a wonderful experience!

I just started coming to your office a few months ago. It is the kindest group of doctors, PA's, nurses and front desk group I have ever dealt with. Thank you for all you have done for me.

—Jeannie B.

I feel like God sent me to Inverness Derm. I just want to thank them for the great service.
