San Ramon, CA |
Terrible bedside manners. "Botched the surgery" and gave me a massive blood clot that put me in the hospital for a week. I had to go elsewhere to correct his surgery.

Great personality

He repaired my right shoulder for me on Nov 9, 2016 and 2 weeks later I could move it in every direction. 5 weeks after surgery I felt better than I have in over 10 years! Dr. Yacobucci has given me a new out look on life, before surgery I felt like I was old and worn out and would have shoulder pain for the rest of my life. Now I feel great and can play with my grandson again! Thank you Dr. Yacobucci!
