"Dr. Ishaaya and key members of his service providers, including Nurse Practitioner Melissa Tauer and scheduler Anastasia (I hope I recall hers, accurately, as she is always a delight!), are consistently among the most personable, attentive, meticulously-detailed, and genuinely patient medical personnel in the HISTORY of my experience with doctors' offices. I have ALWAYS appreciated the thorough, exploratory approach to diagnosis and the healthiest strategies to remedies and healing. I sometimes catching myself marveling that I don't have "another question" after appointments there. It's unexpected and so appreciated that Dr. Ishaaya will typically call a day after a visit, to see how I'm feeling. I should add that I just had an extensive recent tele-visit with Melissa amid this Covid pandemic - and was beyond-satisfied with her level of care, thoughtfulness and time. I cannot recommend this office enough - for any of Dr. Ishaaya's specialties, or as a Primary Care Physician!"- J.S. / Google / Aug 06, 2020
