      Dr. Iqbal is an excellent surgeon with the kindest personality and a fabulous sense of humor to make anyone feel at ease when having to discuss such intimate medical issues. I had a double hernia for which doctor performed a type of surgery that only required 3 small incisions through my belly button and lower area. Only because is he highly trained in his field, was he able to do this type of surgery on a hernia and not have to cut me open with a long recovery.I highly recommend Dr. Iqbal

      Dr. Iqbal is a breath of fresh air---a doctor/surgeon with a visible heart for his patients. I have had no acid symptoms since surgery (thus no need for OTC meds), grateful I went through with the procedure and blessed to have Dr. Iqbal in my health corner!

      I had gallbladder surgery in September 2015 and Dr. Iqbal was the referred surgeon to do the procedure and like most people I was freaked out about having surgery and also is this surgeon going to get it done correctly with no complications.My pre-op meeting with Dr, Iqbal was great! he went step by step about the procedure and was able to calm my nerves about being panicked and freaked out and I could tell he really does care for his patients. I have no post issues and would reccomend Dr Iqbal

      I was referred to Dr Iqbal for a possible hernia. I visited him on August 24th. He exam-ed me, and said I had a slight hernia, but he also discussed the possibility of weight loss surgery. He showed me all 3 surgeries that he performs and explained how each one works. He recommended the Gastric Sleeve for me. I was really excited about this, as I have been battling Obesity for many years. I weighed 304lbs at the time I first started the whole process. I went to the Fountain Valley Surgical Weigh

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
