      Worst experience ever, worst doctor ever. He was rude to the nurses, radiologists and me, leaving me in worse pain than when I walked in. I've had the same procedure many times (different town and real doctor) with good results. Isaacs' name is really Dr. Sadistic and don't let him touch you!!!
      in Santa Fe, NM |
      My daughter went into a RF neurtomy procedure today, for the 2nd time and he ADDED to her pain level due to poking and prodding after she had told him she was already at a level 5 pain level. He did not do the courtesy of identifying himself to me when awaiting the procedure in pre-op nor did he even acknowledge that I was there with my daughter. He had no sense of the pain my daughter was already in nor did he care to know who was with her prior to her procedure. He was rude and denigrating!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
