Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr Yacobucci gave me my life back. I was an avid hiker, and devastated by an ACL injury. I was able to get back to my sport in record time post surgery. His compassion was equally amazing

I am a retired surgical device sales rep, so I have the means to identify the best surgeons in Phoenix to address my knee osteoarthritis. I chose Dr. Yaccobucci. He is a very competent physician with outstanding interpersonal skills. He always recommends a conservative approach and never pushes surgery as a rat option. I would highly recommend him.

He is a great surgeon and a friendly person. He has such a positive outlook. His confidence is contagious. He told me I would soon be feeling better after shoulder surgery and he was right. I'm getting to feel like my old self again.

After months of pain Dr Yacobucci started me on a great track. I can’t thank him enough. Being new to Phoenix we went on recommendations of friends in the medical community. He and his staff(both medical & administrative) have guided us through the process. Thank you

Dr. Yacobucci is always no nonsense with his approach. Starts with least cost and complicated approaches first and solves my issues for both my knee and now shoulder. I would highly recommend him. X Rays were done on site and made immediately available. TOCA is a world Class establishment and they have their act together. I got in to see him in less tan a week which made me very happy.
