      After 13 years of dealing with chronic pain and doctors who just tried to throw pills at me, I finally found someone who truly cares, listens, and wants to help me find long term solutions. Dr. Iqbal and his staff are awesome! He really cares about his patients and is will to go the extra mile to make sure they are in as little pain as possible. The first two times I left his office, I cried, just from relief and the feeling of hope for the future. He responds quickly to messages sent through MyChart, can normally fit you in within a few days if needed, and always willing to listen. Having someone like him on your care team makes a world of difference!! I see him in his fountain valley office in California.

      I'm seeing Dr. Iqbal under Dr. Barreto. Dr. Iqbal is very patient, kind, informative & friendly. I started seeing him in Orange County Ca. I'm very satisfied with how much he knew before coming into the room, about my condition & needs. He seems focused on getting me off my meds but is not pushy if I'm uncomfortable with changes.
