Dr was absolutely wonderful!
Dr. Al-Issa personally scheduled my son's appointment with him. His schedule was full but he saw my son during a time he would not have been otherwise seeing clinic patients. He spent at least an hour with us, fully engaged with my son and also with me. Dr. Al-Issa's expertise and caring about his patients make him first-rate.
Very good experience
Dr. Alissa is a very attentive doctor who listens to the patient.
Dr. Alissa is always so kind and knowledgable.
Dr. Alissa is great with my daughter and listens to my concerns. He takes the time to carefully explain the options and gives me a chance to participate in her care. He is also quick to point out that if something is not working, to give the office a call so it can be addressed, further reassuring me that help is available in between visits as well.
Very pleased with our overall visit.
Love that my both my children see Dr Al-Issa and his team they are wonderful so nice and they know how to treat their patients !!!
Dr. Alissa is great with my daughter and she is very comfortable with him. He always talks to her in language that she understands and that does not scare her and includes her in the treatment plan as well.
dr al Issa is wonderful. at this visit, a resident, Cristin McDermott, was present. Her compassion and thoughtfulness was above and beyond. I am a nurse and I was blown away at the time, kindness and sensitivity shown to my daughter and myself. UPMC Children's is very lucky to have them both on staff.
He is great!
Dr. Alissa always has a wonderful bedside manner. He is very professional but always makes small talk at first, speaks to us in a friendly manner that we can understand. He never is in a hurry, always answers all our questions. He is a very caring doctor.
The provider didn't make me feel stupid for all the questions and comments I had concerning my son's appointment. He was very patient and kind. He took everything I said into consideration. I appreciated that being that my son was sick for 9 days and I wasn't getting anywhere with anyone else .
they are amazing at what they do!
