Reviewed on Nov 12, 2021

Dr. Isakov was very straightforward, respectful and answered all of my questions. He made it very clear the procedure that would need to be followed in order to go forward with scheduling surgery. However, I wish I had had the opportunity to discuss the specifics of this surgery with him or his staff (procedure, recovery, etc). Although, I forgot to propose this topic myself. Our consultation went very well and I am very likely to recommend his care to others.

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.
