If I could rate no star I would. Would not recommend any one to him. He saw me for 5 minutes treated me like I was stupid and told me what I had to do. I am not that kind of patient. I am very knowledgeable on my Hyperthroidism. I know the treatment available and the risks involved. He has never even done an ultrasound yet. I waited over three hours in the waiting room before I got back to a room to see the DR then another 30-45 min to see the dr.

I don't care if a doctor is warm & fuzzy if he is knowledgeable & helpful. He was not only unnecessarily rude & completely unsympathetic but has not been even a little helpful. Blood work. Check numbers. Increase meds. Repeat. He has made several comments to me about how "common" thyroid disease is and told me it was not something life changing.This is by far the LAST thing someone trying to control a thyroid disease needs to hear from someone they are paying to help them. Looking elsewhere!

I have been seeing Dr Issa for over five years. I have always found him to be very professional and exceptionally knowledgable. His team will work with you to ensure you receive the quality of care you want and require. Only when conditions worsened did he recommend surgery and then he only recommended the best surgeon in the area. He is a professional. That is what I want in any physician I see. Competent, exceptionally knowledgable and trustworthy define Dr Issa.

Dr Issa has absolutely no bedside manner. He makes you feel like you are wasting his time by being there. When you push him (after all you had to get a referral and drive for hours to see him) he puts you off for 6 months. When I made an appointment for an ultrasound, which is only done on certain days, he randomly decided not to do it. His staff called me on a Friday about and appointment on Monday to tell me my referral expired during those 6 months I waited. Find a better doctor!

I am a type one diabetic and was going to establish my care with Dr. Issa. After one visit I know I will not be returning, not only did it take over an hour for me to even see the Doctor after that he barely could be bothered to find out anything about my diabetes or how I have manged it in the passed. I have been diabetic for almost ten years, I know what to expect when I see an Endo Dr and this was by far the worst treatment I have gotten. He was condescending and not at all what a Dr should b

Would definitely recommend Dr Issa to anyone needing caring, professional care.

Zero empathy. None. Do not expect Dr Issa to care about how you're emotionally or physically dealing with your treatment. He only cares about the lab results.
