Cash only office with the rudest staff imaginable. Completely unprofessional and actually PUSHED PAINKILLERS. I’ve never experienced anything like it. I was not written a prescription for enough medication until my next appointment, andwhen I called for a refill, I was told that they would not be doing that and refuse to assist me. Never go here - it’s a scam.

The doctor is CASH ONLY, which is shady, to begin with, but also a very rude front desk staff, and completely lacking in respect/care for patients by now following up with record requests in a reasonable time. I would suggest everyone stay far, far away from this office.

It's always a pleasure. Dr. Thornton and Dr. Yacoub are both incredible doctors. They genuinely care about their patients, which is hard to find in this town. The staff are lovely as well. They're all kind and compassionate to every singleperson who walks through that door. I'm lucky to have found them. :)

My appointment was originally set for 11AM, I was late to my appointmnent by 17 minutes to be detailed. Typically I am not late, but at rate occasions I am late give or take 5 minutes but no matter how lateI was I have always been treated the same with respect. Being 17 minutes late, I walked into Dr Yacoub's , Ehab office no more than 5 minutes after arrival. My current condition has been something I struggled with my entire life since I was at a much young age. I can tell anyone with confidents that assuming the account of doctors I saw was 8 total for the specific concern that Dr Ehab Yacoub is the only doctor that woul listen to me, try to exolain thing to me and make me walk out of the appointment with knowledge and not a single thought of question. I would recommend

While the physisian was great, his staff is an absolute nightmare. Than man the was checking me in claimed he never had me in the system, even though I received multiple texts confirming my appointment & insurance. He was extremeley unhelpfuland rude during the whole process and I could hear him yelling at zocdoc while I was in the other room because his employee forgot to transfer it to their calander! The staff also had no idea how to even verify my insurance and it looked like a complete mess. A Dr like that should have a much more capable and friendly staff. They also couldnt figure out how to verify my insurance so my wait time was over an hour, which further delayed me getting back to work. For the Dr, he was very accomedating and made me feel very at ease during the visit. He was kind and understanding and helped sort out the issue I was having. I would reccomend him personally to anyone, just again, not his staff.

I am not pleased - i went through a horrible reaction to my medicine, asked to get my GABA levels and neurotransmitters tested, get to the doctor a week after my blood work to see he did a normal blood workon me (i.e cholesterol) - he , as a brain doctor, claims he never runs these type of tests....i find this abnormal

I came once, was in his office for 15 mins before he stopped asking questions and I understood that it is time to leave. I thought for the first meeting, it would take at least 1 hour for the dr. toget a grim of what is going on in the patient's life. All history that brought he/she to the mental issues. Nope. Patients come to him to get their med prescribed, I guess. He treats patients the same way. No listening. Just all about drugs. In and out quickly. That was my impression.

Dr. Yacoub has bettered my life immensely! In my initial visit, I did see an intern before the doctor joined us for the rest of the evaluation and diagnosis, however, the intern was just as thoughtful and listened to my issuesjust as Dr. Yacoub does every time I have a check up. I've suffered for half of my life undiagnosed, this was my first psychiatric evaluation and I wish I had gone to someone sooner. Thank you!

Front of desk personal were aweful and unprofessional. There is an (what I assume) intern in charge of insurance who needs someone reviewing her work. My insurance was processed incorrectly, I was over charged for my visit, and not seen untilover an hour after my appointment time. After a half hour I inquired if there was an issue with something and she said "I'm trying to figure out how much to charge you" very unsure. She was incorrect and there was no one else that would help assist.

In 2016, when any kind of medical practice ONLY accepts cash payment for your co-pay/deductible, you probably don't want to be there. Who carries cash anymore, really? This is the type of thing you should warn people about ahead of timeor at the very least inform them immediately when they arrive.

They don't take credit cards for whatever reason (likely to cheapskate and avoid the processing fee), so you have to walk across the street to the Shell to use an ATM.

Now that I have switched psychiatrists I can clearly understand how awful my experience with this office was. I feel the need to express my concerns with others so they can avoid this experience. I scheduled an appointment with Ehab Yacoubbut I was assigned to a different doctor in the office, David. The ladies at reception are rude and unhelpful. I came to this office three times and I was always kept waiting, once even for an hour. When I was finally seen, each appointment was between five and fifteen minutes long. I literally felt like I was being shuffled out of the door as quickly as possible. I felt that my doctor had absolutely no insight or understanding of my issues and prescribed me what I thought I needed. At one point I asked for more information about one medication and he said "well I don't know, I haven't had the chance to try it." I cannot think of a less professional way to handle this situation. My new psychiatrist said that all of the prescriptions I was on were completely wrong for me and I am now off all of them and feeling so much better. She actually asks me detailed questions and gets to the root of my issues to prescribe the appropriate medication. I would never ever recommend this office to someone. Never going back.

The doctor was very professional, I appreciated the way I was treated in the office, except from the reception desk. I understand working in offices can be long however they were literally as cold as ice. I will however still be returning!

The doctor was gone when I finally saw him. I arrived on time and was told by one of the obese 17 year old receptionists that my insurance was invalid. I spend the next hour on the phone for them tosay it was perfectly valid. The office worker Merena told me she had personally called earlier in the week and was told it was not current (could have been nice to tell me this earlier in the week??). I finally got to see the doctor after two hours of wasted time, there was no issue with my insurance and no record of the doctors office having ever called to check on it. This was also not my first appointment, I have been seeing the doctor for a year and have an issue each time with the clueless staff.
