Dr. Issacson and her staff were very welcoming and proficient. I truly appreciated how thorough Dr. Issacson was in explaining the different options I had to correct the ailment. She listened to my concerns and gave practical advice. I would be happy to return to this doctor should I have any other issues of her specialty.

I had a good experience. The ladies and gentlemen at the front are very pleasant. They are people who you can ask questions and get answers. Dr Terah is a very good listener. She understands me very well and after discussing everything, we came to the same decision. Very sweet, down to earth doctor. I would recommend her to my family and friends.

Loved this doctor. It was my first time seeing her, and she spent her time with me answering my questions, but best of all, she informed me of some guideline changes back in 2020 and told me I didn't need a colonoscopy after all. She seems very gentle and kind, and she's easy to talk to. I will be seeing her again in three years. Hopefully, she can inform me of some more guidelines changes. :)
