Dr Isenberg and her assistant were both very efficient spending time to discuss problems and treatments. The schedulers for follow were amazing with Cathy Nelson going above and beyond in successful efforts in getting PT appoint at Bainbridge Clinic saving a 2nd trip to Seattle. Many thanks and kudos to her.

Nancy was extremely sensitive and caring. She had reviewed my chart, was familiar with documents gathered. Just by doing this, she had validated me!!
March 2018
I was confident I was in good care with Dr. Isenberg
February 2018
Dr. Isenberg is excellent. She created a good sense of trust with my mom (the patient). She has a very nice way of talking and listening to patients. We liked her a lot.
December 2017
Dr. Isenberg appeared to be rushing toward the end of the appointment. We understand she needed to finish but think she showed her hurry more than necessary.
December 2017
I don´t like coming in to an appointment and being asked why I am there when the reason should be clear in my file. But, again, I was thrown to this provider because mine called out sick. She probably wasn´t given any time to read my file. I was there for an occipital nerve block and was almost told to come back at another time for it, but once she saw that I was getting feisty, she went ahead and did it. However, didn´t give me any information about it, how long it should work (i had to ask), what any side effects there might be...she shot me up and sent me on my way with no information. It was kind of scary.
November 2017
Nancy was confident and reassuring for my concerns. I think I am in the right place.

Dr. Isenberg exceptional in helping me!! Thanks!!!
October 2017

it felt a bit rushed which was disappointing but she did provide reassurance in response to my needs. I felt that although I had to wait for her she was trying to get back on schedule perhaps a bit at my expense.

My doctor visits this clinic from Seattle and has little extra time because of the ferry. Not good.
June 2017
Dr Isenberg is a wonderful doctor. My husband has Alzheimer´s, and we see Dr. Isenberg about every 6 months. No matter what the problem is at the time, she always has practical solutions to help solve them. She is a wealth of information. I highly recommend her.

Dr. Isenberg is so respectful and professional! I appreciate her willingness to not mention Alzheimers to my mom and she is so kind!
January 2017
Dr. Isenberg is among the MOST thorough, thoughtful, knowledgeable physicians I have ever seen in my 72 years! Outstanding!
January 2017
The alternative method that Dr. Isenberg suggested to take the place of a large capsule that my husband had difficulty swallowing works very well. Many thanks!
January 2017
Doctor was very attentive to my specific individual concerns and explained the plan clear & "down to earth". I was impressed with the graphs & charts used to illustrate her points.
January 2017
I especially appreciate Dr. Isenbergs direct conversation with my wife, the patient, even though she suffers cognitive loss she still feels respected and listened to.
January 2017
Dr Isenberg is an exceptional doctor. Her diagnosis and explanations have turned my life around. I now understand why my symptoms occur and what to do about them. The prescriptions she ordered have made a great difference, but equally what has helped s learning what I can do to improve my own health. She listens very well and her explanations are clear. She encourages questions and her answers are understandable and actionable.
