Dr. Richard Isaacs, Physician in Chief, South Sacramento, Kaiser Permanente, is a danger to patients.

His hands off modus operandi when a physician abuses patients is well known.

It matters not how many times a patient in pain appeals to this administrator, he will always find ways to either ignore the appeal or refer the matter to his legal staff, in order to find reasons that the patient is being unreasonable, hostile or, worse.

The only physicians in danger on Dr. Isaacs watch seem to be physicians who are patient oriented vs fiscally bent on providing minimum care for maximum fees.

The silences emanating from Dr. Isaacs' office, and his reliance on the famous and potentially illegal Permanente Medical Group employment contract to silence anyone who would agree that a patient is being harmed is truly ghastly to observe.

Recently, Dr. Isaacs abandonment of an elderly patient in crisis, opting instead to support, as usual, threats from his Legal Office, was reported to the California Medical Board.

Dr. Isaacs is a plastic surgeon. Therefore he is an expert in terms of creating different faces.

Certainly this doctor uses many of them on a daily basis, championing fiscally producing physicians, and disadvantaging those who have heard, and what's more adhere to, a semblance of the Hippocratic Oath.

A truly dangerous physician.

Solution.

   Perhaps it would take up less space on the 'net if you listed doctors that you don't have problems with.

Should Have Left Well Enough Alone

AUTHOR: bethcharette - (United States of America)

I found the following material relative to Dr. Isaacs particularly insightful:

"Richard Isaacs, Physician in Chief, South Sacramento Kaiser Permanente, in many ways is a fine man and doctor, if  he had remained with those he would have been a star.

As an administrator, though, Richard Isaacs is clearly at sea.

Richard Isaacs is more than willing to believe and act upon information delivered by credible, aggressive personalities, right or wrong, especially if those personalities are societally favored affirmative action appointments as is the case with the female physician mentioned
above.

Richard Isaacs has difficulty opposing such personalities in favor of milder, more vulnerable colleagues.

Richard Isaacs is like many doctors who attempt to lead without training in that area.

It is assumed, wrongly, that doctors can lead just because they have medical degrees. As a matter of fact, just the opposite is true.

Doctors are trained to obey, not to lead others. It is an unusual personality who can complete pre-med, medical school, internships and residencies, all those experiences depending on pleasing others, and emerge prepared to lead.

Richard Isaacs is a good surgeon. However, if he wishes to lead or manage others, he needs at least two years of graduate work in the management/leadership area, as well as an internship, before he would be prepared for a leadership role.

As it is, he and Dr. Evan Bloom (Assistant Physician in Chief) as a team are not prepared to provide competent leadership at the South Sacramento Kaiser facility. They may be great doctors, both. But, that means nothing when faced with strong personalities misleading them."

Richard Isaacs Is Caught In a Common Dilemma

AUTHOR: Leone - (United States of America)

Richard Isaacs, Physician in Chief, South Sacramento Kaiser Permanente, in many ways is a fine man and doctor, and, if he had continued practicing medicine without venturing into management, he would have been a star.

As an administrator, though, Richard Isaacs is clearly at sea.

Richard Isaacs is more than willing to believe and act upon information delivered by aggressive personalities, right or wrong, especially if those personalities are societally favored affirmative action appointees, as is the case most recently with a female physician who is wrongly disadvantaging a well respected patient oriented doctor in his Department of Physical Medicine.

Richard Isaacs has difficulty opposing strong personalities, and if it comes to a choice between coping with an aggressive colleague vs a milder, more vulnerable subordinate, his instinct is to settle for peace, by following the lead of the person who will give him the most trouble if opposed.
