My experience with Dr. Yacoub was absolutely the Best! Very smart, kind and you know you are in good hands when you spend very little time with him. He knew all my details when he entered the room. Anyone needing a hematologist would be lucky to be in his care! THANK YOU Dr. Yacoub, I really appreciate you being in my camp! Stan Lifetime Patient 1/13/2020

Stan in MO – Jan 14, 2020
Absolutely terrible. Went to see Dr. Yacoub for a second opinion with my mother. He was dismissive of all of her questions and gave us the run around on her cancer merely repeating information we already knew. Made the encounter very uncomfortable by interrupting family members and stating he was the doctor over and over and that we needed to unlearn a lot of things (never mentioned what that was). Also uncomfortable was him holding my mothers hand and touching her leg the entire time. My mother left more worried and frustrated than when she came in, he has no concept or respect for quality of life and just wanted to push meds and expensive testing. Never introduced the nurse or the med student and left them standing silent the entire meeting, clearly he does this a lot as the med student was so bored she was texting / on snapchat and eventually just sat on the counter in the room.

He gave me the bums rush at KU Med. He did not listen at all as I was trying to give my health history. On his insistence I had a painful, expensive and unnecessary bone marrow biopsy.

It was one of the worst appointments of my life. He was dismissive said he only treated oncology which I found out later was a frank lie. Ordered a ton of expensive testing to exclude me that if I didn’t except it would make me seem as if I was a non-compliant patient. Yet he wouldn’t refer me to a hematologist until all my testing came back. It was awful. He was awful. I I am so sick, therefore I don’t recommend him.

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.
