This was my first visit. The Doctor provide a complete review of my medical history. He performed necessary physical examination of my thyroid including a medical scan. He reviewed my lab and presented the results in relation to his examination. This comparison provided a clear understanding of my conditions. He also answered my medical questions. I am very impressed with his clinical approach and patient communication skills. I am very pleased I selected. Dr.Iqbal. Jan, RN, MS

I am a diabetic and after the first visit with him he raised my insulin level so high that it caused me to have a diabetic seizure & put in the hospital for 2 days. After discussing my seizure with this doctor he said being a diabetic does not cause seizures. After another visit to his office my blood sugar was so high that he sent me to the ER, spent 3 hours in the ER the ER doctor just told me to give myself an insulin shot and it took my blood sugar down. Totally incompetent doctor

I see Dr. Iqbal for periodic monitoring (most recently February 2017). I've always found him to be very thorough and caring. He takes his time and addresses my many questions. I wish I could find a primary care doctor as thorough and thoughtful as he is.

Jameson. I have been an endocrine Patient for 10 years. Has followed Dr.Iqbal In Henderson in 4 different offices he has been. Always a pleasure & real delight to see him.

Dr. Iqbal is extremely knowledgeable and found a lump in my thyroid within 10 seconds of feeling my neck. He ordered the test and I had it biopsy within 2 weeks. He wants his patients to not have to bounce back and forth and treats issues aggressively. I would recommend him to anyone needing a specialist.

After seeing so many specialist I was disappointed until I consulted Dr.Iqbal. With his treatment & diagnosis; I feel like a normal human being again

Amazing Doctor. Really cares about his patients. Took great care of my wife and explained everything thoroughly to us.

I was able to get an appt quickly. The staff was courteous and professional. Dr. Iqbal very patiently and politely listened to all of my concerns. I was in really bad shape, having had my thyroid med reduced by 31% by a previous dr. Dr. Iqbal conducted a scan of my thyroid in is office. He immediately saw the effects of not having enough thyroid medication and prescribed my previous amount. Ordered a blood test and return visit. Repeated in1 mnth. I am back in balance, renewed energy!

Patiently went over all aspects of ultra sound of thyroid in language that is understandable to those not in the medical profession. Down to earth. Would recommend him.

I am happy that I found a specialist that treats my thyroid condition as opposed to seeing my family doctor. He is truly a great doctor and always makes sure I am feeling well on my medication.

I have been seeing Doctor Iqbal for approximately 3 years, he has always answered all my questions and explains to me why my body is doing what it is, he appears to be very compassionate towards his patients. I have never felt uncomfortable are felt like I was being pushed or hurried out by him. Just want to thank Dr. Iqbal for being the way he is
in Las Vegas, NV |
Very happy with servics
in Henderson, NV |
I would not recommend this doctor to anyone. He has no bedside manner and very little patience which is an awful quality in an MD. Seems to change his staff weekly.Save yourself frustration and unabashed rudeness and find another doctor
I don't leave patient room until all of their questions are answered & needs met. Endocrine patient's are not seen weekly & no office who can afford to change staff weekly ( Hiring & training staff is very tough, time consuming process). On rare occasions offices need " temp agency staff". I welcome patient's to write me personal notes to address their concerns. this opportunity was not availed by poster. Regarding other allegations see other patient's comments. I wish him peace & best of health

Dr. Iqbal is an exceptional doctor in his field. He is extremely knowledgeable and is able to explain things in layman's terms without being condescending or belittling you for asking additional questions. The *biggest* and only problem are his office staff/nurses. They are extremely unprofessional; in appearance as well as demeanor. They do not seem to have a clue how to interact with people;more often than not, they act as if any person/patient there is a waste of their time and bothersome
Without specifics &names I am unable to address these concerns. Patients are always encouraged to write me or contact me via my answering service if there are issues not resolved by my staff. I open my own mail & respond to concerns raised by patients in person.
