Our team

Dr. John Jacobs is Board Certified in Family Medicine with a Certificate of Added Qualifications in Sports Medicine. He has over 30 years of experience working with athletes both young and old: “Many people find their nichne in sports later in life,” he says, “especially as they mature and discover the benefits of lifelong exercise.”

Dr. Brian Jacobs is Board Certified in Family Medicine and Sports Medicine. He completed his sports medicine fellowship at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, WI. In addition to his work with athletes, he teaches medical students, residents and fellows in the sports medicine field.

Dr. Kari Sears, also Board Certified in Family Medicine, completed her fellowship in Primary Care Sports Medicine at the South Bend-Notre Dame Program. In addition, she is a member of the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine and the American College of Sports Medicine and Indiana Academy of Family Physicians. She joined our Family Medicine and Primary Care Sports Medicine practices in September 2015.

Our sports medicine technology: the key advantage

Our University Commons office location is equipped with a musculoskeletal ultrasound, allowing for better diagnosis and accurate joint and soft tissue injections when necessary. With the range of capabilities in our office, plus our deep connections to Michiana’s sports therapy network, we help all patients recover from their injuries and return to the activities they love.

Fun fact!

As a resident, Dr. John Jacobs trained alongside the University of Notre Dame head trainer and team physicians. “I was thrilled to observe from the sidelines during Lou Holtz’s first season in 1986,” he recalls. “I even got to see him jump up on a bench in the locker room to lead the team in the Victory March after his first win.”
