What People Say About Dr. John Issa, MD

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...Read More
