Jeffrey T. Islas, MD

Board Certified General and Laparoscopic Surgeon

“There’s no reason for fear in the era of modern surgery. Using state-of-the-art laparoscopic techniques, we can perform many procedures without the pain, large incisions and longer recovery times that used to accompany them. I look forward to explaining these procedures to you and answering all of your questions.”

Educated to care.

“Early in my educational experience, I discovered that even minimal effort on the part of a few would result in subtantial change for the benefit of all.”

Learning and sharing through professional memberships.

“By maintaining contact with my peers, I am able to keep on top of major developments in my field. One of the great benefits of these associations is that I can continually expand my knowledge, thereby providing the best possible resources to those I have the privilege of servings.”

Memberships: California Medical Association
L.A. County Medical Association

Involved and committed.

“In addition to specializing in general surgery, I am bilingual. Speaking both English and Spainish helps me communicate better with my patients and eases their communication with me. It’s something else that helps me get more involved with them and more committed to their care.”
