in Staten Island, NY |
Dr Issack is an incredible doctor/surgeon. He has the bed side manner that you would hope a doctor would have. He takes the time that's needed to make sure your comfortable with the procedure your facing. Dr Issack is the epitome of professionalism. I feel lucky to be alive and not in a wheelchair and it's because of him.
