We really liked the doctor and thought he spent a good amount of time talking to us about all that was going on with our daughter.

Dr Al-Issa is great! He was incredibly helpful. He was able to look at notes from my daughter's appointments with Neurology, Urology, and Nephrology. He answered all our questions concerning her new course of treatments and medications. He even suggested another test to do before starting her new medication. He took his time reviewing her dietary requirements and put together paperwork for us to turn into her school.

Always wonderful doctors!

Overall we had a great experience with Dr. Al-Issa's office. Everyone was courteous and we were seen promptly. Dr. Al-Issa has a good bedside manner with children and he listened to our concerns. There was a slight communication challenge with some medical terms that we were not familiar with which could have been explained a little clearer in a way we could understand but overall we were very happy with Dr. Al-Issa. We feel he is very knowledegable and made good recommendations for follow up.

Dr. Al-Issa was very sensitive towards our daughter and took extra time with her due to her being scared. He listened to us as parents and quickly he had an excellent overview and understanding of our daughter's complex medical needs despite this being the first time he saw her. He was very knowledgeable and detail oriented.

My son is in the Autistic Spectrum & his very anxious about his medical issues, the Dr. was able to connect excellently w/ him & getting him to buy into the treatment that needs to occur.

Dr Feras Al-Issa was amazing. He took his time with us. Listen to our concerns. He was very thorough and aware of our daughter's needs. I would definitely recommend him to family and friends.

January 23, 2017

We are very happy to have Dr. Al-Lissa. My daughter and I always walk away from her appointments feeling like she is his only patient. He is kind, knowledgeable and talks in terms that we can understand. It is inspiring to know that my daughter will be able to stay with him until the age of 25.
