Reviewed on Feb 5, 2020

Dr. Isakov is a very knowledgeable surgeon and was able to answer any questions I had about the surgery, but was otherwise extremely rude to me. He made belittling comments that I believe were intended to be jokes but came off as extremely disrespectful. He also spoke negatively of previous patients, such as saying that the aesthetic results of nipple grafts were poor and making a negative comment about the body piercing of a previous patient which I thought was incredibly unprofessional of him.

Reviewed on Jan 24, 2020

He is very caring to look at previous physicians notes and discussed how to continue from that point.
