Union, MO |
He's the best! Takes time with you. He has always helped me, never let down. Excellent doctor! Recommend highly!
Charleston, WV |
I have been a patient of Dr. Istfan's for a couple of years. I have arthritis that is progressing quickly. Although Dr. Istfan listens to what I have to say, and he does spend time explaining what is going on with my body, he is a doctor who prescribes NO pain medications. I am in pain, and I don't know where I go from here. Physical therapy, exercise, and seeing what I thought were the best doctors, have failed me. I don't want to live like this.

I have been a patient of Dr Istfan for many years. He's very kind and compassionate and very thorough. He always treats my husband and I with respect and always answers all of our questions. Great Doctor!! :)
