      Most professionals have worked
      inside a box for so long. By that, we mean it has taken so long for people to
      take the ways of the innovative world to benefit majority of people, especially
      in the medical
      profession
      . But doctors have learned to come out of their traditional
      comfort-zones in order to expand their horizon and serve more people in a more
      dynamic and effective way. Meet one of those physicians who is out there to
      serve your needs: Dr. Richard Isaacs.

      Dr. Isaacs’ qualifications, as
      posted in his web homepage, were not meant to impress but to inform and
      convince people of what he is capable of providing. Rich is not only a
      specialist in Head and Neck
      Oncologic Surgery
      but is also an experienced physician who has dealt with
      various cancer cases (facial skin cancer, jaw tumor. laryngeal cancer,
      paranasal sinus cancer and thyroid cancer and others). He has also worked in
      developing innovative medical procedures using robotics and computer-aided
      medical systems.

      With his extensive experience
      and expertise, it is not surprising that Rich, who attended the University of
      Michigan in Ann Arbor as an undergraduate, excelled in academics and garnered
      honors a graduate. He was born and raised in Detroit and finished his medical
      degree at the Wayne State University School of Medicine there, also finishing
      with honors.

      Dr. Isaacs joined Kaiser
      Permanente in 1995 and he holds Advanced Certification in Head and Neck
      Oncologic Surgery. His specializes in such cases as orbital, nasal, and
      maxillofacial surgery, as well as thyroid and parathyroid surgical procedures.
      Moreover, Rich has undergone training in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive
      surgery and is likewise an expert in post-tumor facial reanimation and facial
      reconstruction surgery. Rich is a Fellow of the American Academy of
      Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery as well as of the American College of
      Surgeons. He has written several articles in different medical and other
      related publications.

      In his heart, Rich is a
      natural teacher and is engaged in training medical students, residents and
      fellows from the University of California, Davis, School of Medicine, Drexel
      University College of Medicine (Philadelphia), and Northstate University School
      of Medicine (Elk Grove) where he serves as a Professor of Otolaryngology. With
      his passion for teaching, Rich obviously finds personal satisfaction in
      achieving one of the noblest occupations any person can have in life. Expertise
      and knowhow thrive through continuing study and research, as well as through
      bequeathing them on to others who will likewise apply and pass them on through
      their own practice.

      Being a Physician-In-Chief,
      Rich has shown good leadership abilities as well as proven his integrity as a
      trustworthy professional. In April of 2005, he was appointed to the
      Physician-In-Chief position for the South Sacramento and Elk Grove Medical
      Facilities. He heads 450 physicians and over 3,000 nurses and staff who serve
      210,000 Kaiser Permanente members in the South Sacramento and Elk Grove
      locality. Rich also works as the Medical Director of operations, as well as all
      inpatient and outpatient sections. He likewise holds the position of Chief
      Medical Officer for the 290-bed Acute Care Hospital and ACS Level II Trauma
      Center.

      Physicians are some of the
      most workaholic workers we know; however, they strive to spend meaningful time
      in other endeavors, such as in sports. And for a doctor with his credentials,
      Rich chose to become a skier and an Alpine Member at the National Ski Patrol,
      providing complete care to injured skiers at the Tahoe Donner Ski Resort. Not
      only is that inspiring; it is quite commendable – spending time out of the
      clinic and in the great outdoors while seeing to the medical needs of other
      sports-enthusiasts.

      Here then is a physician you
      would want and who is totally prepared to meet your needs: Dr. Richard “Rich”
      Isaacs – now out there to catch you when you fall and falter.
