Professional staff, short wait times, the doctor himself is knowledgeable, has a clear passion for his work and is willing to share his insight into the diagnosis. I would recommend friends and family to Dr. Ishak for any hand needs.

This doctor runs a mill - I'm not surprised if he doesn't do 30-40 surgeries per day on Thursdays. He and his cohorts at Ventura Medical own a surgery center in Ventura and require all patients to have procedures done there no matter how simple. I can't go under general anesthetic but the doctor insisted I do so. While sure of himself he cares nothing about building patients trust. His office staff actually hung up on me when I asked a question they didn't want to answer.

Dr. Ishak and his staff are very friendly and efficient. Had surgery 2 weeks ago and you wouldn't know anything was wrong. Great job.

He is a very good surgeon. Fixed my carpal tunnel issue in my right hand and advised against another proceedure that had a low chance of success. I’m going back for my left hand.

Thank you Dr. Ishak !!!! My superb recovery is due to the fantastic surgery that you did on my wrist. When I shattered my wrist I wasn't sure if I would be able to use my hand again, but thanks to you doing such a wonderful job my recovery is far greater than I would have imagined. I can't tell you enough how thankful I am to have you as my doctor. What a good staff as well from Margarita, to the gentleman in the x-ray department, to Ofelia making my next appointment. Thank you all

Dr. Ishak and Ventura Orthopedics are in my opinion among the best in SoCal. In a professional capacity, I work with and have contracted with my physicians for biotech drug development. As a result, I have become quite selective in whom I trust, especially for invasive procedures such as the treatment of Dupuytren contracture with Xiaflex or surgery. On the recommendation of Dr. Ishak, I chose Xiaflex and the result was spectacular! The staff is professional and courteous as well.
