Dr. Isakov and his RNFA Megan are wonderful. Everything was explained to me, all questions answered. Because of the difficulty of my issues, I understood that I could have a few different outcomes and I was prepared for that. I am a retired CRNA from CCF and I chose Dr. Isakov for my surgery because I had administered anesthesia to so many of his patients over the years...thus observing his skills in surgery. I knew what good hand I was in. My outcome was perfect, thanks to his skills and his excellent assistant Megan.

being someone who is extremely uncomfortable with my body and very anxious about drs I felt very comfortable with all of the staff. I do not have one complaint. I've seen a couple surgeons about the same procedure I'm having done and everything about dr isakov and his staff were perfect I had alot off issues with the staff from the other places I had gone too. here scheduling was easy all my questions got answered and everyone was extremely respectful and nice. Now dr isakov is the first surgeon to sit with me for longer than 10 minutes and really talk and explain what was best fit for me. I am very grateful for choosing dr isakov!

Staff working with Dr Isakov were very much on the ball. I got roomed within 5 minutes of checking in 20 minutes early. A plan was made and people got right in working on getting my a future surgery date if I chose Cleveland Clinic. After meeting him and his staff I was 90 % sure Cleveland Clinic will become my new choice for specialty care. Have been at mayo in mn since June 6th 218. Cleveland Clinic feels very patient positive and transparent. Things required to gain trust and respect for a hospital/Clinic to do. My visit was on Wednesday. By Thursday I was 95%. Talking with my family they also supply care moving to Ohio. I am 100% committed to traveling from Northern Minnesota to Cleveland. It's just an extra 90 minute flight to Ohio verses Rochester. I canceled my breast augmentation consultation tomorrow in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Cleveland is 100% my decision. I talked with 6vother surgeons across the country. Dr Isakov felt the right fit. What a relief in a year filled with drama and uncertainty.

Reviewed on Dec 16, 2020

Evey competent BA surgeon i met wouldn't guarantee a breast cup size or how big the implants will be. That is up to the surgeon and their experience. No false or misleading expectations were given. Risks were discussed in great deal as any surgical consultation should do. Building trust. Nothing said raised alarms, in fact due to anesthesia issues the smaller surger locations were deemed not appropriate. I will have my surgery at the main hospital. Access to specialist if needed. A smart move/plan by Dr. Isakov. He wants the best possible outcome while assessing any risks.
