The Doctor explained things about the drug I was afraid to take. It really made me feel better knowing that I was wrong in my thinking.

Doctor treated Mother with great concern and respect. He used several modalities (whiteboard especially helpful) to communicate with Mom. He was so patient and caring when explaining her medical situation. He made her feel understood and valued.

Because Dr. Yacoub is a nephrologist, he's only available half the time. That makes waits for appointments twice as long as they could be. Also, he's not really interested in taking on new non-nephrology patients ---therefore i would hesitate to recommend him to others. ---unless they had a kidney issue, of course.

Dr. Yacoub is one of the best doctors I have ever had.
