Due to nature of the emergency surgery I needed involving my spinal cord, I was a little hesitant to just accept the hospital on-call neurosurgeon. We also couldn't find many reviews for him and actually considered discharging and going to somewhere like Barrows. But Dr. Iskandar and his staff were phenomenal. He explained things well, visited me every day before and after surgery (even on the weekend) and best of all never once made us feel like he was rushed. He and his staff are world class.
