Absolutely LOVE Dr. Yacoub!!!! He is extremely polite, courteous, and thorough! He explains everything and double checks that you understand or have any concerns or questions. He obviously follows up on your progress and is working for you, even when you aren't waiting for him in his office. He appears to truly care about you as a person and diligently strives to do the best possible job for you that he can. He is a true asset for Wake Forest! Hold on to him!!!!! P.S. Go get Dr. Aklilu back too! They are both wonderful!!!!!!
