the length of time to get an appointment was disappointing, 10 weeks out. as my child's condition grew more serious every effort was made to get him to be seen by Doctor asap. the doctor and staff were professional and very helpful.

February 20, 2018

The doctor was on time, friendly, and spent time creating a plan for my son. My son really liked him too!

Short wait time, quality time with the doctor

December 28, 2017

The doctor was terrific. The wait time was over two hours. The receptionists in the lobby only provided assistance when approached with questions. I had to check and see if there were forms I needed to complete before they took us back into the actual office.

Great visit

December 11, 2017

Dr. Al-Issa is an excellent doctor. He actually looks at my daughter's records before our appointment. He treats us like real people and not just patients. I'd highly recommend him to anyone I know that needs a great pediatric GI.

Dr. was very kind and very thorough.
