Dr Al-Lissa is always vested in my sons treatment. There are so many variables in his case but Dr Al-Lissa looks at the entire picture.
Dr takes his time listen very respectful
The provider is always there for our family to answer questions and provide guidance/medical care in a timely manner.
Very satisfied with Paige's check up.
Dr. Al-Issa is one of the most caring doctors I have ever dealt with. He listens to all of my concerns and questions even though some of them are not GI related. We would be lost without him.
He goes above and beyond and spends the time needed with my son. Great bed side manner.
Excellent and compassionate provider
we really respect him and his knowledge. he is an excellent physician
i absolutely love all of my sons team of Doctor's, surgeons,nurse's, everyone that works perfectly together to help my son be as healthy as he can be. I always feel so important and heard at doctor appointments. I'm very much included in decision making. Information is always explained to me so clear and If I dont understand something its explained to me until I do understand. I never feel like we are rushed or brushed off. Im very satisfied with the care my son receives.
Dr. Al-Issa is wonderful! He always takes time to listen and seems to genuinely value my input regarding my son.
Dr. Al-Issa is very thoughtful and thorough. Really looks out for the patient.

We really like Dr. Al-Issa. He is personable, knowledgeable, listens to us and is very compassionate.
Dr. Alissa is amazing. he always takes time to listen to my concerns and values my input regarding my sons health.
always a good experience
He was excellent!
Very caring, listens to concerns, even relating to mental health. Extremely professional and knowledgeable about my child's conditions and is concerned about her overall well-being.
Dr. Al-Issa was incredibly warm, caring and easy to talk to about my daughters issues. He explained everything very clearly and helped us figure out the best course of action. He was able to balance not having a long appointment with a two-year-old but also getting all of the information that he needed to be thorough. He had an excellent bedside manner and handled our daughters nervousness very well as she was not at all excited to be there. We would definitely go back to him if we ever have any kind of problems in the same area.
Dr.Alissa is an amazing doctor!!! He listens and actually cares about the well being of my son. I would be lost without him!!! He truly is one of the best!!!
The child see's a team of doctor's From the same clinic at the Hospital and we have seen this particular provider several times over a period of 6 years.
thorough, kind, great with my daughter
very thoughtful, listened, and very respectful
Always good experiences
We are very fortunate that Dr. AlLissa has office hours in Erie. We would drive the distance to Pittsburgh if he didn't however. He is very attentive to our needs and is respectful and thorough. We are very lucky to have him as a treating physician of my daughter's condition.
Dr Alissa has an excetional bed side mannet, very professional too. He always takes his time in discussions, really gets to know patient and their family. He is the BEST
Dr Alissa is such a great Dr that I have recommended him to another family member to go to him. I always get the information and answers I need about my sons condition.
very helpful, patient, and trustworthy
the length of time to get an appointment was disappointing, 10 weeks out. as my child's condition grew more serious every effort was made to get him to be seen by Doctor asap. the doctor and staff were professional and very helpful.
The doctor was on time, friendly, and spent time creating a plan for my son. My son really liked him too!
this was our second visit with this care provider. He seems like knowledgeable and caring about his patients. I believe he is good care provider
ICARE Team is the best!
very caring doctor
Short wait time, quality time with the doctor
The doctor was terrific. The wait time was over two hours. The receptionists in the lobby only provided assistance when approached with questions. I had to check and see if there were forms I needed to complete before they took us back into the actual office.
Dr. Al-Issa is an excellent doctor. He actually looks at my daughter's records before our appointment. He treats us like real people and not just patients. I'd highly recommend him to anyone I know that needs a great pediatric GI.
Dr. was very kind and very thorough.
Dr. Alissa is wonderful and very helpful. He talks to my daughter and asks her questions. He makes her feel listened to.
