I hate to join the choir of complainers but this doctor does not return phone calls.
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.
