He is NOT helpful at all, he acts like he knows everything and you are his Guinea pig. Wouldn't recommend a dead person to go there if that tells you anything.

Not a good place to go getting help for addictions as advertised. Does not meet regulatory standard in terms of patient treatment plans and education. Confusing and mixed messages from staff there. Everyone is friendly but they don't care beyond getting bill paid. Compared addiction to diseases yet doesn't provide treatment as a disease....esoecislly not recommended for those with addiction and psychiatric issues.

Put me on a drug that's very hard to detox from, a medicine that caused more depression than I had originally; basically it lowered my baseline for happiness, so to get to normal, I had to have the drug. Trying to quit is very hard as it has changed my brain. In 2 separate visits he said "tetracyline" when I mentioned "tricyclic" antidepressants. Tetracycline is an antibiotic, not an antidepressant. My family doc agreed with my assessment. Nice guy, but don't trust him with your brain.

I was very hesitant to see a psychiatrist at the beginning. But now I wish I done it sooner. Dr. Joe is awesome. He made me feel comfortable from our first meeting. He got me on the right medicine. I feel much better. I never felt this good before. He saved my life.

He got my kids on the right medications. Anxiety and depression run in my wife and I families. The kids love Dr. Joe. He was able to get them involve in the treatment plan. They are doing very well. We are happy parents.

He is the best doctor ever. My daughter was on 9 medications before she saw him first, she is very stable and happy only on 2 medications now. He saved her and my life.

He is very caring, compassionate and very conservative with medicine use. My son was on multiple medicine before he saw Dr. Iskandar. He is currently stable on one medicine and therapy. Dr. Iskandar also started seeing my husband for anxiety. He truly saved my family. I recommended him to everyone in my family and friends.
