I was not impressed with the visit-- everything up to was great. I felt the Dr should have met with me after speaking with my son alone. Instead of hearing my concerns and why we were there she decided to draw her own conclusion and was treating mentally before medically. She sent us home with exact same treatment we were doing instead of reviewing why we were referred to her. Then told me not to be concerned with his gallbladder-- since no test indicated an issue. Im sorry but that was the end of the line for me-- because she didnt do any test to check the gallbladder!! She fibbed to me. Since we have seen another physician and we are getting treatment.

She always takes care to explain what she's doing to both of us and takes her time. She lets my daughter make decisions about her needs and priorities.

Dr. Issac was AMAZING! She spent so much time explaining our child's care plan and next steps.

Dr. Issac is incredible. Truly the best physician we have ever had the privilege of interacting. She is thoughtful, extremely competent, and fantastic. Because our insurance is OON with CC, seeing CC doctors is a true hassle. However, Dr. Issac makes the extra effort worth it.

Dr Isaac (and her team of ED specialists) are true patient advocates. They CARE!!! Most of the time at the Clinic you feel like a burden or hassle but they make you feel confident that they are doing things correctly and that they treat your child like their child.

This was our second time seeing Dr. Isaac after completing the Emily Program and going back under her care. When she came in the room, she acted as if it were the first time meeting us and didn't initially remember our first time seeing her. This didn't feel good/personal. Following that exchange, she noted that she may have been confusing us with another patient.
