If you looking fo a Doctor who won't return your calls, who's never in the office, who doesn't have anyone answering the office phone, Dr Yacoub is your man. He coded some test that I had done at LabCorp wrong, I tried by fax, phone to get it straightened out with no results, I wound up paying the $385.00, it's not worth my time and effort to hunt this guy down. Dr Yacoub, told me that I had epilepsy, and never reviewed, or sent any records to anybody. I will be filing a complaint with the AMA.

AWFUL! never returns phone calls. waited 3 months for mri script. RX refills not called/faxed or electronically sent. ignores your symptoms just sits there and smiles. still after 6 months-- yes 6 months, no script for bloodwork. i refuse to ride to his office to get it- shouldn't have to! your first visit will be wonderful after that... good luck!!!!! you will need it.
in Wilmington, DE |
like the other reviews....phone calls never returned, does not follow through, still waiting for RX and blood work script. blew off some questions . just smiled when i was explaining my symptoms. ashame because he is very, very nice and respectful. will NOT be going back. scheduled to see another doctor

in Newark, DE |
Still waiting 2 months for a return call. He seems okay in the office but didn't seem to remember us after 3 appointments. This is not professional.
in NewCastle, DE |
Dr appears to be one nice fella but why doesn't the staff return phone calls? Dr acts so friendly but when it gets down to business he just doesn't follow up. Oh well I have to find another dr because this isn't professional. Maybe he used to perform well since he has awards hanging up all around his office or maybe staff made the award certificates themselves. Who knows maybe he's just tired & really wants to retire. I'll do him a favor & go elsewhere because I understand. My Farewells.
in Dover, DE |
I have a child on a controlled medication that is prescribed through this office , I have called 3 times over past 2 weeks to get medication refilled. Still no medication and my child started school Thursday. This is very unprofessional and harmful to patients. Its a shame because he is a very nice man and works wonderfully with children. And he actually listens to parents and their concerns, which is a very rare find.
in Wilmington, DE |
Highly recommend Dr. Yacoub. He's professional, attentive, and really cares about his patients. Never will use another!
Newark, DE |
Never did what hesaidhewasgoing to do. Neither he nor office returns calls. False hope given at first appointment with no follow through. Also has a habit of cancelling apps and closing the office without notice.
in Newark, DE |
Office never returns calls, office staff is constantly changing. Appointments are rescheduled without any notice and office staff claim to have called. An overall unprofessional experience that never failed to disappoint me.
in Newark, DE |
He NEVER returns calls and does not follow through with what he says he's going to do. Made me wait over a month for a MRI script and I finally had to change doctors. VERY unsatisfied!! This is not the way to run a practice! I would not recommend this doctor!
New Castle, DE |
Never followed through. Never helped with anything. Continued to blame my insurance company and lead me along for months before never responding to a phone call.
