First office visit with Dr. Jorge Isaza
I had the distinct pleasure of an appointment with Dr. Isaza upon a recommendation from my orthopedic doctor of many years. Everyone from the receptionist, assistants and Dr. Isaza himself were polite, courteous and thoroughly professional. This was an unexpected necessity due to a acute and painful condition that developed suddenly. Dr. Isaza examined me and reviewed the MRI video disc that my primary Orthopedic doctor both electronically forwarded to him as well as a copy of the disc I brought with me. The reassurance of the opinion and information I received was factual and to the point. This appointment prepared me with full knowledge of what I was confronting and the steps that would be necessary to addressing the problem. I would highly recommend that anyone with a spinal situation that desires the best care to contact Dr. Isaza for his opinion and advice.

The best spine surgeon in Louisiana. He operated on me and also on my husband. We had a herniated disc and he did a minimally invasive disc surgery that got us both back to work in days. His staff is extremely professional and attentive. You don’t have to wait weeks for an appointment because they fit you in quickly when you need to be seen. They are an amazing team starting from the doctor on down! Recommend him 300%!!!!

I thank God for Dr. Isaza. He performed my SI joint fusion surgery. It's been 7 days, and other than the typical pain from surgery, my SI joints do not hurt!!!

I have been a patient of Dr. Isaza for years and was recommended by Dr. Bryan Giffith. Dr. Griffith said if he had to have someone cut on his back it would most definitely be Dr. Isasa. I saw him and was very happy he did not try to rush me into surgery but tried other alternatives first. Even after that he did not rush me into agreeing to surgery he said it was my decision. I have never looked back. It was wonderful to be pain free!

Dr. Isaza has the most caring staff that I have ever had the pleasure dealing with. They truly care for you as an individual. He guided me through the treatment process and figurative held my hand even when he sent me to a different doctor for pain management. As a surgeon I thought he would be quick to want to operate on my problems but he tried every avenue to alleviate the pain before he suggested surgery. I appreciated that thoroughness. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Isaza and his staff.
