Dr. Iakovou is one of those rare doctors who listens to his patients. We went there with my mom and he took the time to listen to our concerns and answer our questions with professionalism and compassion. He patiently explained my mother's medical condition and offered us good advice and next steps. I would highly recommend this doctor to my friends and family.
