I truly trust Dr Yacoub with my life, and am so blessed to have found him.
Explained everything very well. Told me his plan of action & allowed me to give my input and approval!!! Meant a lot!! He was aware that I had done a lot of research on my problem & was not offended by some of my questions or input.
Very good about explaining things to me.
My mother now goes for visits.
Best possible care-giver, no problems
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!!!!!!
No bad experiences.
I always have a good experience when seeing *Dr. Yacoub.
