Dr. Iftikhar is truly amazing. His office staff is so nice and caring. They are always willing to go the extra mile to make sure my concerns are addressed. Prior to seeing Dr. Iftikhar I was a patient of a cardiologist that was a part of a large group. I always felt like a number. Dr. Iftikhar’s office is different they are very personable. He and his staff remembered my name and a few details about my family that I shared with them by the third visit. I’ve recommended Dr. Iftikhar to all

Dr. Iftikhar saved my father-in-law's life when he had a heart attack several years ago. He took excellent care of him, even though he had no insurance at the time. Dr. Iftikhar made sure my FIL had everything he needed to survive and thrive. A few years later, my FIL needed bypass surgery and Dr. Iftikhar stayed by our side the entire time. His staff has always shown us the utmost care and respect and are some of the best office staff members I've ever had the pleasure to deal with.

Dr. Ifthikhar was my cardiologist during my pregnancy and my opinion of his profession and his staff were very high. When my mother began having some issues with her blood pressure, I asked her to change cardiologists and long story short, Dr. ifthikar has saved my mothers life! Whenever my mother has needed refills, they have been called in before the end of the day. Whenever my mother has gone into AFIB, Dr. ifthikar has made her direct admission fast and easy! I highly recommend this dr.

Dr Iftikhar is a great doctor. He has treated my for several years. He listens to my concerns and address all of my issues so that I can understand completely. His staff is like no other office. They go above and beyond for me. I have never experienced a facility like this one. I would recommend Dr Iftikhar to all of my family and friends that need a great cardiologist in a heartbeat.

Have been going nearly 20 yrs.. excellent staff & wonderful Dr. He gave my mother several more yrs to live. Would only see him for any heart related problems.

My wife and I have been patients of Dr. Iftakars for several years and while his office staff is nothing to brag about, we trusted Dr. Iftakar and looked past his staff. However, just recently, my HBP has gotten out of control (147/112 pulse of 109- continually) so I called the office seeking guidance and had to leave a voicemail. This was on a Monday. As of Wednesday I have not heard from anyone, I called back Wednesday and had to leave another message for his nurse.
It is unfortunate that this patient feels this way. Our office has one of the best reviews in the city and we take every complaint seriously. Records showed patient was called the very next day and Dr also talked to him in detail about his medicines
