Born in NYC, Dr. Wayne Isaacson attended The Bronx High School of Science, one of the most elite and well-respected public schools in the country. Remaining committed to family, he remained close by and obtained a Bachelor of Science degree with honors in biochemistry at Binghamton University. Dr. Isaacson then completed his medical degree (M.D.) at Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse, New York. His residency and fellowship training were completed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at the Thomas Jefferson University Hospital Center.

Tarrow Award for outstanding resident research.
Dr. Isaacson continued his academic career in Portland, Oregon as an assistant professor at the Oregon Health Sciences University where he was also appointed as Pain Fellowship Program Director of an ACGME fellowship program. While engaged in clinical and teaching duties, Dr. Isaacson did consultant work for the Oregon Board of Medicine as an expert in controlled substance prescription practices. Although Dr. Isaacson enjoyed the outdoors and cool misty climate of Oregon, he did have a desire to be closer to family, which prompted a move to Southwest Florida. After a short tenure as medical director at Lee Memorial Pain Management Services, Dr. Wayne Isaacson entered private practice at his current Fort Myers location, where he has remained since. Prior to opening his current facility location in Cape Coral in 2006, Dr. Isaacson also had two additional office locations in Bonita Springs as well as Naples. Desiring to focus primarily in Lee County, Dr. Isaacson consolidated his office locations to his two current facilities of one each in Fort Myers as well as Cape Coral.
