He took his time explaining all the medical information to me

Knowledgeable, compassionate, clearly explains what's going on and treatment. I was practically wheelchair bound for 6 months with inflammation and Dr. Iskander had me on my feet after 1 visit. Dr. Iskander has my highest recommendation.

Dr.Iskander has been a blessing! Listens & cares,excellent! I went years dealing with sever pain until I was referred. He ran detailed blood work,more than the regular family doctor.I learned of diagnosis Sjögren's Syndrome, my low platelets, & rheumatoid. He carefully monitored me with medication & watched my platelet levels improve with treatment plan. The relief & answer to have a medical diagnosis & accurate treatment gave me a life again. I'd forgotten how nice it was to feel better! TY!

I moved here about 5 years ago with active RA and a history of Lymphoma. I was very nervous to have to switch doctors. Dr. Iskander turned out to be GREAT! He is knowledgeable, courteous, and patient. His bedside manner is professional and comforting. At first I thought he was a little low tech (IBM typewriter in the office, hand written appointment book...) but he gets the job done! He excels in what I need as a patient!
