What People Say About Dr. Shirin Issa, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Issa has been incredible! A top-notch professional. She is deeply knowledgeable, thorough, compassionate, thoughtful, inquisitive, and efficient without being rushed. She took a great deal of time to understand the history of my husband's headache syndrome and current issues, and quickly integrated his preferred approach into her recommendations. We love that she draws on both western medicine and more natural methods for what feels like a very integrated, personalized treatment plan. She has been compassionate and reassuring, yet also straight forward and truthful. She has also been remarkably accessible – inviting us to email her with questions/input between appointments and sometimes even responding late at night. Really, the only negative we can think of regarding Dr. Issa is that she is no longer taking Regence insurance starting in July which will present some financial strain, but we will see her anyway. She’s well worth it.

Dr Issa is fabulous at explaining things and educating us about my 16 year olds headache disorders. There are no headache specialists in our local area so we travel to see her. She communicates well via the clinic portal and is easy to schedule phone consults or clinic visits as needed. My sons headaches are clomplex and we are grateful to have found Dr Issa and her expertise. He is finally making progress getting his life back.

Dr. Issa is a very knowledgeable headache specialist. She was always kind and caring to me and thought outside the box. However, because of a pharmacy mistake, she's accused me of Dr. shopping without checking with me or the pharmacy. I don't appreciate unfounded accusations.

She is a very knowledgeable doctor, she know what she is doing and does the best for her patients. When I first walked in her office I did not know anything about my migraines, she was able to help me treat them and learn how to prevent them as well as to identify the triggers that affect me.
