After reading the reviews was looking forward to seeing Dr. Issa, but after more than an hour in crowded waiting area saw an arrogant doctor that was detached, not really interested in helping with chronic pain problems for more than 15 yrs. Am 60+ yrs old, and have trouble even leaving the house, suggested acupuncture or physical therapy. No more time for appointment, too many other patients to see. Very disappointed.

Dr. Issa is the kindest most compassionate dr Ive ever had. I email frequently (sorry!) with medication requests and questions and he gets back to me asap. He is very smart, he knows about all my meds, and you get the feeling that he genuinely cares. I see him at Brigham and Women's Pain Management in Chestnut Hill. In a world where you have to fight for yourself to get good care, Dr. Issa is a breath of fresh air. He listens, he cares, he knows. He's just the best.

Extremely knowledable and very intelligent. Knows everything about medications and he listens and answers any and all questions I may have at the time. Spends a good amount of time with me at each of my appointments. If your looking for a smart and compassionate doctor, give this one a chance. You won't regret it.
