Dr. Iskander spent over an hour with me talking about what was going with my body. Even before entering the room, he took the time to review my records I brought for him to see. He answered any question I had and was very honest and upfront. I highly recommend him!

Dr Iskander has even come in early to squeeze me into his very busy schedule. I would highly recommend Dr Iskander and his great staff to anyone.

Dr Iskander and his staff were very pleasant, helpful, and professional. His pre-appointment paperwork was very complex, and excellent for letting him know things he needed to know, saving time at the first appointment. He was so kind, patient, and reassuring. He works well with my family doctor, and they shared information to help plan my treatment. I highly recommend him!!

I have been a patient of Dr. Iskander for almost two years when he first diagnosed my RA. He is a completely professional, caring and knowledgeable doctor. He has always been available for emergency flare ups and takes the time to comfort my concerns, helping me to live an almost pain-free life because of his medications and treatments. I feel blessed to have found him.

Dr. Iskander is highly knowledgeable. Not only is he well-versed in his field but he evaluates the person as a whole. He is a truly caring physician and is not afraid to share his spiritual side. He has identified non-rheumatologic conditions in me over the years and has never been wrong. As a result, I received prompt and appropriate care. He does not rush through the appointment, which makes me feel valued and cared for. He has my utmost trust and respect. Oh - did I mention that I am a RN?

There are not enough gold stars to describe Dr. Iskander. I have been a patient for 20 years or in rheumatoid arthritis land forever. He has treated me and taken care of me like family. He always has time for my questions and has truly taught me how to handle this goofy arthritis. To my family he is the epitome of a gentleman and a gentle man he honestly cares how my illness affect s all of my family. He cares about calling after office hours to be sure that he calms and reassures any issue

After finding Dr. Iskander nearly 12 years ago he has helped manage my condition and return to and remain active. The many knee drainings, often because of my "over doing it", have been done with uncommonly little discomfort. Dr. Iskander and his office team have been friendly, respectful and always very accommodating. After leaving the area long ago the hour and 20 minute trip is still so worth it.

Have been with Dr. Iskander for 16 years now. In an emergency when I was having water on my knee, (before I finally got it replaced) and it was bothering me badly, Pam ad Sherry would get me in early in the morning before work and I would be fine for several more months. Has always listened to me and has never steered me wrong.

I've been a patient of Dr. Iskander for about 15 years now and I am so glad to have found him. He is a caring, knowledgeable, thorough physician who quite obviously truly wants the best for his patients. Doctor Iskander's staff are wonderful and kind, always welcoming and helpful. I wholeheartedly recommend this practice to anyone in need of a rheumatologist. Because of Dr. Iskander, I have a wellness and medication plan that works for me, and I am now healthier, happier, and less painful.

I have been blessed and grateful to have been a patient of Dr. Iskander's for about 20 years now. I have a rare and incredibly painful joint disease. He was knowledgeable re this disease at my first visit. He and his staff are always kind, patient, and polite. His staff gets me in as soon as possible when I am having an acute flare up. He is extremely gentle when my knee is so sore I can't walk on it or even touch it. He gives God the glory for his excellent skills. I recommend him highly.
