Specialties

Dr. Melissa R Isbell has the following 2 specialties

  • Nephrology

    A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
    A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Best doctor all around

Dr Isbell is the best doctor there is. A few years ago, I suffered a stroke and was recommended to see Dr Isbell from another doctor (just to check out my kidney). I was told to find me a primary physician and so I did. I didn't like the doctor that I found and went back to Isabell. She is the best. She's very sweet, experienced, understanding, listens to you, advises you. Sometimes there is a long wait at the office because it's always busy. It tells you that she's good. I would definitely recommend her to anybody.

Dr. Isbell is a great doctor. She cares about the patient and follows thru. The clinic is very busy, so there must be a lot of people with kidney disease, but I am very impressed by how she remembers everything abut her patients! Not just the medical aspect, but the whole patient. Her ttitue I great. She never make you feel guilty....even if you missed your last appointment or gained 10 pounds! You would be lucky to have her as your nephrologist!!!
