Specialties

Dr. Fadi Y Yacoub has the following 2 specialties

  • Nephrology

    A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
    A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

no longer my doctor

For 5 months kept guessing what was wrong with me without any tests but bloodwork. Tried to get him to listen to me, but no luck. Finally, after landing in ER because of a treatment he had guessed at, I switched doctors. With proper tests and subsequent treatment I am well on my way to recovery

Misdiagnosed, Overloaded and Poor Communiation

My mother was mis-diagnosed by Dr. Yacoub. He REPEATEDLY told us there was nothing wrong with her and that her pain was all in her head. He refused to cooperate with getting a second opinion. We finally did it without his help and within 24 hours the a new Doctor offered a diagnosis that changed the way she was cared for. My mother passed away within weeks of her diagnosis. But only after 2+ months of being told by Dr. Yacoub that nothing was wrong. I am not out for revenege because here's the thing - my mother was going to pass due to her ilness even if he would have diagnosed her properly. Nothing could be done to change the short time she had left. However, IF he would have given her the proper time during her 60+ days of hospitalization and followed up with proper tests and requests, and taken off his "holier than thou" attitude, she would not have had to experience the extreme pain she suffered for months due to his lack of caring, lack of time and lack of knowledge & medical training. DON'T LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU & YOUR FAMILY! We have a filed a complaint with the Iowa Medical Board asking that his case load be reviewed, we feel he is overloaded. Also that his required continuing education be investigated to assure it was truly completed. And finally we want our concerns on the record incase any further complaints surface - can't imaginge they won't.
