Dr. Eissa is a compassionate physician who truly listens to my problems and symptoms and goes above and beyond to find solutions that work. I highly recommend him to friends and family.

Really Nice Doctor. My pain was in my Back and Shoulder. I had to visit (because of Insurance) 3 times before my pain was gone. But it is Gone. I don't know how long it will be gone but it is Gone. No more Oral Medicine for me.

He claims to be a pain management doctor, but he does not write prescriptions. He says he does not write prescriptions, instead, he sets the correct dosages so you can start all over to try to find a new doctor. He says he does not prescribe because he is too busy to see the same patients every month. What a joke and a waste of money.

I could not walk very well without extreme pain in my Knee. He recognized that the pain was not coming from my Knee but that it was Nerves in my Back. He did a procedure called RFA... Burning the Nerves. I Love and Trust him.
