09/06/11 1 4 1 3 I wrote to the doctor regarding a hernia that developed after surgery as requested by the Internal Med. doctor, I never got a reply. I called the office and spoke to one of the staff (Lisa?) and asked for a call-back and never got a call-back. Very embarrassing since I had bragged to the IM doctor about the Dr. Isho.  See Responses

29/04/11 5 5 5 5 The doctor has done work on both myself and my husband and is excellent. We have both had surgeries and my husband a colonoscopy and he did a great job. He is very personable and sweet and knows his stuff.

07/01/11 3 3 1 1 Extremely painful colonoscopy. There is absolutely no reason for anything to be that painful. I slept thru my first colonoscopy 10 years ago. Doctor Isho's procedure was so painful. I would not recommend it to anyone.  See Responses

15/12/10 5 5 5 5 Skilled and compassionate doctor, very easy to talk to, even if it's an embarrassing subject. I am glad I finally did a colonoscopy amd also fixed my hemorrhoid problems. Friendly and accommodating staff. I have recommended Dr. Isho to my other family members.

13/01/10 5 5 5 5 Dr. Isho is great. I went to a couple of other colon/rectal surgeons with poor beside manners. Dr. Isho was compassionate, but most importantly performed a successful fistulotomy. Staff was excellent as well.

24/09/08 1 4 1 4 Dr. Isho is the most arrogant Doctor I have ever talked to. He gets frustrated easily and does not have any bilingual staff - nor he is willing to pay for an interpreter. He is not accomodating in anyway to his patients and he treats them in a hurry - especially the elderly that need extra time. He replaced Dr. Thomas Sullivan which was the total oposite from this new Dr. I WOULD NOT RECOMEND HIM GO TO ANOTHER SPECIALIST IN COLON RECTAL SURGERY -
