Not impressed. He took very little time to explain just how painful my procedure would be. Didn’t seem to be proactive about mitigating said pain nor did he provide me with any pain medication for the wildly increasing discomfort I’m experiencing just hours after being in his office.

Great experience. The office staff was extremely friendly, and Dr. Izikson was very efficient. He explained exactly what we were going to do, told me what he was doing during the procedure, and then took time to make sure he answeredany follow up questions I had. Highly recommend this practice.

I really liked this doctor because he made me feel comfortable while giving me an accurate diagnosis. The nurse Natalie was super welcoming and sweet, she was the person that initially made me feel very welcome. Immediately I knew this wasgoing to be a good doctors visit. He did do a complete body check and was very attentive in making sure that he didn't miss anything on my skin. He is always booked because he is good.

My visit with Dr. Izikson was honestly super uncomfortable. I'll explain why, though I never planned on leaving a review until I logged back into this website to find a dentist.... When I got there, the receptionists gave me some formsto fill out, all standard procedures. Now I went to this doctor because I suffered from cystic acne for a long time and at the age of 24 (at the time, now 25) it was too much to deal with. The nurse called me in and took my vitals in a private room. She asked me about my medical history and said the doctor will be with me shortly. I was alone throughout this visit. Dr. Izikson came in and asked if I wanted to get a body scan. I said yes since I used to have back acne, though it cleared up a lot years prior to my visit. He told me to put on a gown and leave my underwear on. Standard. What wasn't standard was when he came back into the room alone, with a needle and some form of medicine (I am already alarmed as he hasn't even checked out my skin... what's the needle for?) He then put gloves on and stood directly behind me, ran his hands through my hair (wth?) as he asked me questions. What really threw me off was when he so quickly dropped into a squat position and yanked my underwear down my legs, spread my cheeks and then pulled my underwear up all without warning or a witness! And he kept talking regular medical conversation, and now I am answering him but in my head all I can think is, "This is wrong, he better not do it again in the front"---as he's examining my toes). He comes up to standing position and lifts my bra, then my boob and checks around. By this point I am literally feeling like I have been molested. I mean, my OBGYN whom I've had for 8 years never does a checkup without a nurse in the room, and I trust her alone. The doctor proceeds to get the needle and tells me he's going to numb my cysts. I ask him, nervous because the needle was huge and I mean, this is my face, if this is the only way to cure this. He tells me there is no cure, I have a hormonal imbalance and recommends I see my OBGYN, which I did a few days later, retelling this story and even she, a medical professional advised I say something about this. When he numbed two of my cycsts, he then drained them, proceeding to drain another on my face he had missed and did not numb. It hurt like a lot, and his words of encouragement did not make me feel better. He was creepy, and I felt like I was another paycheck in his pocket. He prescribed me medicine my insurance couldn't cover and then I was recommended to use Selson Blue on my face, which I stupidly listened to and then stopped a month later, choosing to use all natural products internally and externally. I walked out that clinic with bandages on my face, bruised, and crying because I felt worst than when I came in and strongly feel I was taken advantage of. I had severe PTSD from this experience and was supposed to return about two or three weeks later and decided against it. Anyway, this is my honest review, I swear I cannot make any of this up. If anyone else has experienced this, you aren't alone. It is never okay for a medical professional or anyone period to touch you inappropriately. Speak up, say something. I will never return to this doctor again!

Dr. Izikson is a bit quirky, but otherwise, his bedside manner is professional overall and he's clearly a highly intelligent doctor. I went for an annual skin exam (not covered by my insurance - of course!) and I felt that forwhat was charged, he could have been far more thorough!
