Outstanding professional and compassionate human being. The best spine doctor in Louisiana! He saved my life and has changed my outlook towards the future.

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.
