Early hours and small but comfortable practice. He listens to you and does not rush through exam. Does not try to push meds on you and gives advise regarding changes and what to expect. Been with him for years and travel from PA to OH. My primary doc rec him due to listen skills

Dr. Iskander and his staff were very friendly in 2015 when I saw him the 1st & only time. I was dismissed because my symptoms were not textbook despite my history of years of joint and back issues. Fast forward to Nov. 2020, I was finally diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis and spondylitis. In a nut shell, I had spent 5 additional years in pain and having more damage occur than was necessary.

Dr. Iskander has been a godsend for me. I met him 12 years ago and he has changed my life. Gone are the days of severe pain in my hands, my knees and my back. He is so thorough in everything he does. I trust him implicitly. Dr. Iskander is absolutely committed to ensuring the best care for his patients. He makes you feel as if you are his only patient. Consultations with him last as long as you need. Dr. Iskander is the most caring, compassionate and intelligent medical professional I have ever known. Every day is a gift, but every day without constant pain is an even greater gift. Thank you, Dr. Iskander.

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 given me my life back. After seeing other Rheumatologist i was still not able to get my RA under control. Dr Iskander has been great, and im actually able to golf again! 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
