My father had been diagnosed with Parkinson disease for several years, had been on medications with no improvement. I visited Dr. Iskander and he told me he had been misdiagnosed and he has essential tremors not Parkinsonism and he switched his medications to Inderal and he does not have tremors any more.

I had visited Dr. Iskander 4 times for my 8 years old son with uncontrolled epilepsy. I had been to 3 Child Neurologists and they told me that my sons seizures are refractory and he will continue to have seizures all his life. Dr. Iskander adjust my son medications and now he did not had any seizures for 1 year. My respect for Dr. Iskander. I would recommend him for his knowledge and experience
