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.
