Decatur, AL |
Recently was referred to Dr Yousuf for gallstone removal. Dr. Yousuf and his nurse practitioner, Amy , took excellent care of me during and after my procedure and hospital stay. I followed up with Ms. Amy in the office. She was very knowledgeable and kind. I was impressed with how quickly I got in and out for my follow up appointment. I was equally impressed with all of Dr Yousuf's office staff.

Dr. Yousuf is very kind and caring. He takes the time to explain everything and answers as many questions you may have. He doesn't make the visit feel rushed. He is one of the finest physicians I have visited.

I've. Went to the office several times and my visits couldn't have been better. I saw the Nurse Practitioner Amy twice and she was very prompt and helpful with addressing all my questions and concerns. I am very grateful I have found Dr Yousuf and his team.

Dr. Yousuf is a very competent surgeon. He fully explained my mother's condition and completely addressed our concerns. His manner is professional, but compassionate. His nurse practitioner (Amy) however, was abrupt, did not listen, and was condescending both face to face and on the phone. It's a shame that we might have to consider changing doctors simply because his NP is not acceptable. Finally, his office staff are kind, patient, and professional.

I took my 85 year old mother to Dr. Yousuf. we found him to be a good surgen and fine MD. His bedside manner was excellent and he communicated well. Our only problem was with his nurse practioner, Amy. Both of us thought she was rude, abupt, and sour in general. Dr. Yousuf in our opinion is too good a doctor to have someone that unprofessional in his clinic and on his business card.

Dr. Yousuf was very professional and took time to discuss my case with me at length. He was understanding and keenly aware of my condition and what needed to be done for me. His urgency to take care of me was very refreshing. Highly recommend.
