We were very impressed with Dr Yacoub and his concern for all my medical conditions. I felt encouraged that other medical conditions would be monitored until I would be able to get in to additional specialists and other tests were completed.

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.
