Dr Yacoub has been treating me for my two cancers since December of 2015 and I really enjoy having him. He explains everything really good, asks me what I think I would like to do. He goes over test results and his nurse is really good at responding to my messages.

I've been with Dr. Yacoub for 6 months. I'm sad I didn't come see him sooner!! He's super easy to talk to, makes you feel right at home. Most importantly, he's on top off things! His nurse always follows up with lab results and always response to my emails.

Dr. Yacoub has been treating my husband for lymphoma for 1-1/2 years. Before him he was getting his treatment somewhere else. Switching to Dr. Yacoub has been life saving. He is an excellent doctor all the way around. His bedside manner is excellent and he goes out of his way to get you all need to get back to recovering. When things looked bleak he kept on looking for solutions. I believe Dr. Yacoub is why my husband is still enjoying life. We are extremely grateful for his expertise!

Getting a cancer diagnosis and then dealing with the process of adapting and healing is stressful, scary and hard. Dr. Yacoub has quite literally saved my life. But he's also been thoughtful, kind and supportive. He's compassionate and actually listens to me while giving me the hope and courage to push on. His belief in me gives me such hope and self awareness. I know I am in good hands with him. I trust him, his staff and the entire KU Cancer Center is phenomenal.
