He was great. He presented several options that we can try before we get to more invasive options.

Meeting with Dr. Al-Issa was a great experience for me and my daughter. He was great with her. She was nervous but he talked with her and explained what he was going to do. He did not rush her and let her answer questions. He explained all the different options for tratement to me and the pros and cons. He ordered blood work to rule out more serious medical issues. He listened when I talked about concerns and past medical history. I felt relieved when we left that we had finally found a dr. That would listen and solve my daughters medical issue. He gave me a very detailed plan of action that was written out and easy to follow. My daughter is already improving because he took time to listen to both of us

Dr. Alissa always has a wonderful bedside manner. He is very professional but always makes small talk at first, speaks to us in a friendly manner that we can understand. He never is in a hurry, always answers all our questions. He is a very caring doctor.

The provider didn't make me feel stupid for all the questions and comments I had concerning my son's appointment. He was very patient and kind. He took everything I said into consideration. I appreciated that being that my son was sick for 9 days and I wasn't getting anywhere with anyone else .

Dr. Alissa is great with my daughter and she is very comfortable with him. He always talks to her in language that she understands and that does not scare her and includes her in the treatment plan as well.
