DR Issa cared for my Mother when she was admitted with pneumonia. Though marked improvement was noted over night from the treatment given her in the ER, her condition went downhill quickly after DR Issa took over. Calling my own DR in due to the lack of care being given he said her care was barbaric and her prognosis poor. She passed away after he left word she'd be fine. I believe the lack of proper care given by DR Issa contributed greatly to her death. He was never available at any time.

Dr. Issa would arrive at my 85 year old mother's hospital room at 5pm or later during the week. He never introduced himself, or asked who I was. He literally spent less than 30 seconds in the room, and would start to walk out, I would have to start asking him questions immediately to find out what was going on with my mother. He did not care about my mother's well being. I don't know why LB Memorial uses him as a hospitalist, but maybe it's because he only spends 30 seconds per patient.

Dr Issa would not return our phone calls, or even stay in the hospital room long enough to answer questions about my 85 year old father. He walked in the hospital room , said the MRI was negative, turned around and walked out. My father could not even sit up in bed and Issa was ready to discharge him without giving us any diagnosis or clarity on his condition. Clearly he doesn't enjoy his job and is there to check off another patient and collect money. Worst doctor I have ever encountered
