It’s always pleasant and everyone from the doctor to the front desk are always so nice!
I see David Thorton. He is wonderful. He listens and cares. He also calls you back the same day if something is going on. Thank you David!
Kind and caring.
Great doctor and easy to book appointments. I had to wait a bit because it was my first time, but other than that it was great.
I thought he was very thorough and professional. Also very kind and genuinely cared about my visit. Highly recommend
Dr. Yacoub is always extremely attentive and seems genuinely interested in what I have to say.
I think his staff could be a little more personable and organized.
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.
Very understanding and attentive.
I've been going to Dr. Yacoub for a few years and I always appreciate his advice.
They actually listen to you and work with you to get you the proper medication and help that you need. I finally feel like I'm getting control of my life again.
I love Andrea, she listens and truly cares.
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 single person who walks through that door. I'm lucky to have found them. :)
Awesome nurse and care.
Not Bad at all
I recently moved to the area. He was great. One visit he was not there but had someone fill in for him. Also very good. No complaints.
Patient, respectful and cares to help
So nice, always available for last min appointments.. Never have to wait more than five min..
Very helpful and friendly doctor and staff. They've helped me greatly with simple things I hadn't known about before and are always caring and timely with all of your needs. Highly recommend you visit if you're looking!
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 unhelpful and 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.
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 late I 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
This doctor including another in the office are the most patient, never once have I felt rushed and most of all respectful. The availability is amazing, if your concerned with commute, they have you covered with other locations. I mean this, you will not regret this doctor
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 work on 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. to get 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.
Had an amazing visit at this office.
Very nice, helpful staff and the NP is easy to talk to, yet professional.
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 issues just 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!
Good listener, one of the best experiences I've had
honest, kind, interested, and insightful to discover systems.
I did not like the office nor the staff. I walked into what I did not find to be a psychologist office at all - there was a receptionist another patient talking to the receptionist who wasn't even looking in the patients direction speaking loudly and not listening to each other. So much for confide
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 until over 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.
Great guy, great staff
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 time or at the very least inform them immediately when they arrive.
Great doctor. Easy to talk to. Was seen quickly and was a good experience.
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.
There are a number of physicians at this practice; you won't necessarily be treated by Dr. Yacoub. Everyone was friendly and I was in and out in a timely manner.
Best dr I have seen!!
Pleasantly surprised on quality of care and knowledge he has
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 Yacoub but 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 to say 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.
Very caring and understanding. Hines me the confidence that I am going to be ok and get thru this :-)
Dr. Yacoub was wonderful! He was very caring and helpful and answered all of my questions.
My visit was fantastic, very effective and comforting. Would highly recommend!
The entire staff was friendly and professional. Booking an appointment was easy; they were very organized. They were there to help, and they made me feel at ease. I will be going back there in the future.
I have to admit I was hesitant to see another psychiatrist because a year ago I went to one and she was horrible. I'm so glad I gave Dr. Yacoub a chance. He made feel at ease immediately. He listens and is very compassionate. I'm looking forward to seeing him again.
I saw Dr. Thornton. The guy is extremely professional and you can tell he really enjoys his job. Would definitely see again.
Very kind disposition :-)
Very nice, caring and professional. Parking is excellent.
Dr. Yacoub and his receptionist were both very friendly! My appointment was thorough and the doctor was able to refill my prescriptions for me since I just moved from out of state. It is worth making a note that they only accept copayments via cash or check. I only had my debit card but the receptionist directed me to an ATM across the street that was easy to get to.
I had to wait a bit for my short appointment but Dr Yacoub made me feel very comfortable and listened to my experience with certain medications. I'm going to continue going to him and I'm very glad I found an affordable doctor in my insurance network.
Helped me get get ready for an up coming trip. That Was much needed.
He met with an assistant not Dr Yacoub
The main office staff gave off a bad vibe to me as well as others in the waiting room, as we discussed. The doctor himself, seems professional and he is very easy going and cool to talk to. I recommend him, but don't let his staff scare you! Also, they only take cash payments!
Always convenient. I'm able to drive there, be seen, and return to work in less than an hour. David is fantastic, compassionate, and allows you as the patient to feel like you're an active participant in your treatment as well.
He is so sweet and easy to talk to!
True professionals, great experience!
He's very nice
The doctor, as well as his staff, was very friendly and helpful.
It was a great experience!! Dr. Yacoub did my psych evaluation and gave me my diagnosis right away.
Dr yacoub was excellent. He's a very straight forward caring psychiatrist with a great nurse on staff. The girls in the front were pretty nice too! Worth the drive.
The office staff is rude and the office is dirty and run down. Seems to be a drug dispenser versus a true psychiatrist. No real eval performed just prescribed based on my opinion.
Dr is a very positive person and supportive, the problem is not the doctor, the problem is the insurance companies, nevertheless, and again the dr is supportive and helpful. He is a professionist and you are better to feel free and let him know whats annoying you or what and why are you suffering from easily with no fear or shame!
He was so great! He did not treat me like I was a child or completely ignorant. Having detailed knowledge about what works for me as I have had years of experience on meds, he listened to me and didn't disregard my feelings to try and push other drugs on me. This was one of the best psychiatrist appointments ive ever had. He was extensive but also trusting and understanding. Would def recommend him to everyone!
A wonderful and kind doctor. He was straight to the point and helped me with all of my medications. I'm going back for sure.
Nice doctor, but changing staff has made getting an appointment difficult
He is very attentive and takes into account your needs and concerns. Very kind and receptive.
Doctor Yacoub is great, and amazing, as a result his office is a little bit too busy, good for the doctor! But he does the best possible job!
Beware that booking this doctor through Zocdoc will likely just get you an appointment with their nurse practitioner, which is very misleading. The girl at the front desk has a really poor attitude and gets snippy when you call to ask questions. If you want any sort of work-leave paperwork filled out they'll charge you a lot and you'll have to call them several times to remind them that you need it, which will be met with excuse after excuse. The doctor himself (after finally seeing him) was fine, but didn't seem very engaging and didn't do much to assess any underlying problems. Avoid this place.
This was my first visit to see a Psychiatrist. The waiting room was crowded which added to my anxiety, but the room I was seen in was spacious. I found Dr. Yacoub very calming and thorough. I was afraid a psychiatrist might push meds but he is treating me conservatively and with purpose. He didn't make me feel rushed. Overall, very happy with experience and will be seeing Dr Yacoub again.
Great experience!!! Will see him again
Asked good questions, was straight to the point, listened to me when I spoke. Was very polite and accommodated my needs. Wish the wait time wasn't so long :/
The doctor listened to my needs and was extremely helpful
