Patient Reviews of Dr. Roman Isaac
I had a great experience with Dr. Isaac. He is very kind and I really felt that he sincerely cared about my hand condition. He was recommended highly by a friend had surgery with him and was back doing everything he enjoyed just a few weeks after the procedure.

Dr. Isaac is very knowledgeable, but that is seen with a lot of physicians. What set him apart was his bedside manners. Very compassionate. Doesn’t rush you out of the office. Answered every question I asked and that I didn’t think to ask. If I had it to do all over again and have my surgery I would not change anything and Dr. Isaac for my consultation.
