Excellent doctor!
in Far Rockaway, NY |
I'm always impressed with the level of concern for and care given to me with every visit that I have with Dr. Yakutilov. He always pays close attention to my concerns and takes the time to explain things to me in ways that are easy for me understand.
in Rockaway Park, NY |
I had a wonderful and thorough experience. He was great, friendly and respectful and knowledgeable.
Queens, NY |
I not only have waited over 2 hours every single time I had to see him for over 2 years but had to endure his rudeness,forgetfulness of appointments and scripts only to have him punish me for HIS mistakes. He prescribes meds that he has no clue about and makes patients sick from withdrawal or have bad side effects cause he disappears and closes his office constantly without notifying any patients or even leaving a way to get in touch with him. He prescribes meds then treats u like a drug addict.
