      Dr. Yacoub is fabulous. He is not intimidated by any research you have done regarding your condition or questions about new medications that are being prescribed. He listens. He doesn't rush you and, as someone previously commented, he knows why you are there before he comes into the room. You won't find a better endocrinologist.

      Dr. Yacoub is excellent at type 1 diabetes management. Encourages me to try new methods of continuous glucose sensing, when I was ready to give up and rely only on finger sticks. Always listens and tries to assist when I have problems. Refills are given promptly and requests for insulin pump supplies are submitted in a timely manner.

      Schedules three patients per time slot. Explains nothing. Doesn’t listen. Doesn’t care. In a hurry. Take this medicine, no need to come back for six months. I feel terrible, on same medication I had been on. I’m exhausted, no energy. Such a disappointment. Don’t waste your time.

      He carefully reviewed my previous doctors' notes, my recent lab results and, listened with interest to how I am feeling without attributing my symptoms to aging, fatigue, etc and, he also detected an ongoing problem that is easily mitigated. He cares about his patients and gets right to the crux of the matter for you. Dr. Yacoub is professional and personable bringing a lot of expertise to this office. It's nice to have a doctor who sees the whole patient and, I look forward to feeling better.

      I give Dr. Yacoub my full recommendation. I struggled with other doctors who could not help me. I got used to not being listened to and moving on to another doctor. Dr. Yacoub always listens. He looks at the labs then listens to my symptoms. If my numbers are good, but I'm still having symptoms, he keeps on adjusting until the labs are good and symptoms have subsided. He's warm and caring and an expert in his field. I don't know what I would do without his help.
