    Absolutely Terrible Doctor and staff. This doctor sent my son home with possible signs of stroke with only a recommendation of baby asprin as a precaution. He will no do an MRI and my son's vision goes black from time to time. He will not return my call and his office is rude. Call another doctor. My son is only 14.

    I had been seeing Dr. Iskander for 6 months for by 8 years old son with seizures since birth that had been very difficult to control, had been on several medications. Other neurologist advise brain surgery for his epilepsy. Dr. Iskander managed my son epilepsy and he is now seizure free for 3 months. I really appreciate Dr. Iskander for his great work and knowledge.

    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
