We set an appointment with Dr Iqbal. Unbeknownst to us we were scheduled with the nurse practitioner. Everything went well and then we received a call from NP. Letting us know that they referred us on to Anchutz. When we called Anshutz to set up the GED they said that we were referred over as a second opinion of which we didn’t ask for. We called back to the office to get them to change the orders. They were to call us back in 24 hrs but we were banned instead. Insurance bill beat us home. Sad

Both my husband and I have seen Dr. Iqbal--me for routine colonoscopies and my husband for colonoscopies and celiac diagnosis. We have found Dr. Iqbal to be very friendly and thorough in her explanations. When my husband was diagnosed with colon cancer, she went out of her way to make sure that he was introduced to the surgeon and scheduled for surgery as soon as possible. We have not hesitancy in recommending her highly.

The doctor was uninterested overall and uninformative. The post-procedure customer service was horrible. The nurse refused to give me any information over the phone, insisting instead I make an appointment. The entire staff were exceedingly rude when it came to a billing dispute because the doctor, without letting me know up front, submitted my procedure under a code my insurance declined to cover.

I have very happy with Dr.Iqbal. She is knowledgeable about my problems. SHe does not waste a lot of words and gets to the point quickly.
in Boulder |
Dr. Iqbal provided me with effective and thoughtful care for a stomach/intestinal problem I had several years ago. She seemed more willing to listen than the two other gastroenterologists I went to around the same time.
in Denver, CO |
Spent less than 5 minutes discussing treatments and options. Offered no suggestions and was very dismissive. Extremely disappointing bedside manner and very cold.
