Dr. Yacoub is very proactive and is always well prepared for my visits. He consistently evaluates my medication and now has me on a drug regimen that has lowered both my daily glucose levels and my A1c.

Dr Yacoub is the best doctor I have. He’s focused, diligent & has an outstanding bedside manner. I have complete confidence, like with no other doctor I’ve seen, that he is operating in my best interest. That aside, I think he’s a very good man worthy of the highest respect.

I appreciate the way he explains what is wrong and options of treatment. He listens and answers my questions. I rated Dr. Yacoub 5 stars in all areas. I didn't rate him regarding "scheduling urgent appointments" because I have never had to have one.

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.

He was good at first, but once my thyroid was good he didn't know how to further help me. I still had symptoms and my levels still fluctuated, but he couldn't figure out why.
