The most arrogant and socially inept billing clerk named Fera. Rude, brash, insulting, unreasonable. She talked over me, hung up phone on me. Dr Iqbal should know this as he has been anything but rude,great endocrinologist but rude staff.

Went to an appointment on a Thursday paid my $40 copay and was prescribed a Libre. Was told to come back once I had prescription so I could be shown how to put it on. Was told I would not be charged for that. Called Friday morning to let them know I had it and was told to go ahead and come in. Went in and was shown how to put it on. Got a bill later saying I owed $40 for a copay, even though I was told I would not be charged. Called the billing person who said I was sick and I rescheduled for that Friday and it was an appointment. No, it wasn't. Didn't even have an appointment, was told to just come in to be shown how to use the Libre. Will never go back

I went to Dr. Iqbal for a second opinion on my thyroid. He diagnosed me HYPERTHYROIDISM, which I'm not; and he sent the HYPERTHYROIDISM Diagnosis to my Medical Provider. He also left me take LEVOTHYROXIN for too long a period of time, when another Endocrinologist and Physician's Assistant informed me that it was urgent that I stopped taking LEVOTHYROXIN immediately. I will never go to Dr. Iqbal again for thyroid treatment; no exceptions.

I would not recommend Dr. Iqbal to anyone. My 83 year old father was a patient and was treated very poorly and unprofessionally. Iqba is an arrogant man who cannot admit that he makes mistakes. He prescribed a sensor for my father and scanned it with his reader which made my 83 year old father’s reader unable to scan his own sensor. Iqbal refused to admit that he was wrong by using his reader to scan my father’s sensor. Only one reader can be used with a sensor. Iqbal should have known this. It caused much confusion and we had to put a new $50 sensor on my father so he could take a reading. When we addressed this issue with Iqbal he blamed it on a “faulty sensor” instead of admitting he made a mistake. He also accused my father of being too old to download an app on his phone and told us he was doing US a favor by seeing us. I would not recommend Iqbal to any person. He cannot admit fault and is one of the most arrogant doctors I’ve ever met.

Today they told me if I’m not paying the balance of 291$ that I had service since February 2019...due to the time of check out and made appointment nobody told me anything that I’ve owed them money as of my insurance should cover....6months later was today I drove all the way from centennial hill to Henderson office as of my regular check up.... the front desk lady told me I can’t see him only if I pay....I cancelled right there and told them no longer coming back...as she admit that was the office fault from previous team member....I’m not understand how’s this is my fault....but I’ll stuck with collection and looking for another doctor ..I’m not recommend this doctor.

Horrible experience. I went to this doctor with a thyroid ultrasound and detailed thyroid blood tests for him to look at. He said that he will need to do another ultrasound for his records but he won't charge me for it. I paid $120 at the end of the visit. Four weeks later I received a bill for another $200 which they said it's the ultrasound. I asked why I wasn't informed of this and charged when I initially paid and also asked to speak to the doctor and they declined. I don't see why he felt the need to do another ultrasound when I had just brought him one. I also asked for a copy and they refused to provide one for me. Safe to say I will never go there again. Waste of time and money

H.O.R.R.I.B.L.E! I left my most recent appointment due to excessive wait time. When I pointed out how long I had been waiting, he informed me that "when waiting to see someone like him, I should expect to wait 3 hours or more." NO!! My time matters too! Completely arrogant! He was very dismissive when I tried to discuss the side effects I was experiencing from the meds he prescribed. My condition actually got worse after seeing him.

Dr. Iqbal is knowledgeable, thorough and personable. Yes, he spends a lot of time entering info into the computer, & the wait can be long, but he also spends a lot of time with the patient. I had been going for years to another local Endocrinologist, and the quality of care diminished, especially since you can never see an MD or even an NP. Dr. Iqbal actually sees his own patients, a rarity these days. He's got his quirks, but after my other experiences, I would not see anyone else.

Do not bother with this quack. He refused to even speak to me even though I had a scheduled appointment. After taking my copay, I was informed they would have to reschedule due to lack of medical records. I brought current blood test with me that he deemed inadequate without viewing them. He doesn't even have a website!

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.

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.
