Terrible, rude behavior. He was so condescending to me and made me feel so embarrassed and uncomfortable. He spent less than 3 min with me and didn’t listen to any of my concerns.

Dr. Isho is one of those Dr.s who found their specific calling and is truly excellent at treating his patients. That extends beyond just surgery. He deals in a field where his pateients are always extrememly uncomfortable at best, yet he is exceptionally adept at communicating the issues and the treatment options in a manner that leaves one feeling as though it isn't just another run-of-the-mill procedure for him (though it generally must be). I am truly grateful for his quality care.
