Dr Issa has treated the overactive thyroid problem I have suffered from, through initial diagnosis to chronic management. He's very friendly / reassuring and has explained clearly the different treatment options available, helping me choose the best course of action for my circumstances.
thank you for the kind words
I have been a patient of Dr Issa as a Type 1 Diabetic for 5 years from diagnosis and now during pregnancy. Dr Issa is a knowledgable and caring doctor, he is patient and takes time to listen to what is going well and not so well. Dr Issa gives constructive positive and negative feedback where this is due, he is encouraging and will resolve any concerns or problems with medication I would recommend Dr Issa to other patients.
A highly competent physician who keeps abreast of latest research in his field while being able to make decisions based on the profound knowledge of many years of clinical experience I can wholeheartedly recommend. The consultations never felt rushed, I was encouraged to proactively ask questions or raise concerns, my needs and opinions were recognised and heard and taken into account when deciding on treatment and providing an outlook for the future plan. It has always been easy to contact Dr Issa by text between appointments when necessary too. Dr Issa has a very kind and polite manner. Very good communication and follow up with my GP surgery too.
Dr Issa has greatly helped in the management of my diabetes through my pregnancy. Have been able to gain excellent control through his guidance and support.
