      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

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
