I've seen Dr. Yacoub for over a decade and he is the reason I've continued to receive with Mercy (since my other experiences haven't been as great). He's a great doctor and I appreciate the relationship we've developed over these years.

Dr Yacoub takes his time & listens to my concerns. During all the years I've been his patient, he has NEVER given me the impression he was in a hurry.

Dr. Yacoub went over the blood work with me, listening and addressing the questions I had. i was very concerned about a couple of things, and he listened, asked questions, and worked with me. Dr Yacoub put things in a perspective making it easier for me to relate to.
