Dr. Laura Isley, a radiologist who subspecializes in breast imaging, often has to give patients news that that is life-altering. Her approach?

“Be sincere. Although I may not be able to change the diagnosis, I feel it is my responsibility as a physician to give as much clarity and comfort to my patients as I can.”

Isley grew up in Cape Coral and attended North Fort Myers High School. She returned to Southwest Florida upon completing a subspecialty fellowship in Breast Imaging at the Medical University of South Carolina. In 2012, she was hired by Radiology Regional as a Women’s Imager because of her education qualifications from top academic institutions and her training in new modalities.

She sees hundreds of patients each year for a variety of breast imaging including 3D mammograms, ultrasounds, MRI and biopsy. She focuses on breast health, screening, and early detection of breast cancer.

In her spare time, Laura enjoys the beach, cooking, trying new restaurants and relaxing pool days with family and friends.
