Patient Comments (2)

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.
