Dr. Shirin Issa

Board Certified Headache Neurologist

Committed to helping patients understand and gain control of their headaches and migraines, Dr. Issa believes that treatment approaches should be holistic and state of the art.

Ranging from natural minerals and vitamins to pharmacological medications or injections (Botox, nerve blocks) Dr. Issa tailors her approach to the individual and their lifestyle.

“I suffer from a rare, ongoing migraine condition, and Dr. Issa has helped me navigate its treatment with skill and great care. She crafted a care plan that integrates both natural and traditional medicine to provide a comprehensive strategy that respects both her patient’s values and needs.

What a difference from other providers who shrugged at my atypical symptoms and prescribed a slew of heavy, outdated medications!”

What Patients are Saying

“Dr Issa is your personal Samurai warrior in your battle against headaches. In the 30 years I have been trying to find a viable treatment for my chronic headaches, I have never found a doctor so dedicated to beating my pain, and to partnering with me to do it.

Most neurologists offer cookie-cutter treatments with potent drugs and no patience for any concerns about side effects. Dr Issa has a deep understanding and appreciation for the trade-offs between treatment and relief.”

—T. F., Kirkland

“My son turns 16 in a few days and I’m very thankful she took him on. She combines the compassion of being a mother, a highly educated neurologist, and the ability to share her information with the heart of a teacher.

Our entire family and most importantly my son is getting his life back thanks to the expertise of Dr Issa.”
