Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

The very best M.D. I have ever used. He listens to what you say, and how you feel, he never tries to rush you out when your 15 minute alloted time per visit is up, he is a kind and knowledgeable doctor, and that is hard to find these days, my husband and I will follow Dr. Iyer wherever he is practicing until he retires.

Dr.Iyer has been my mother in laws physician for years..he is always very attentive to her needs. Never makes her feel that he is in a hurry, taking the time to hear her concerns. She is 89..with several forms of RA. When ever we have had to call the office, he has always taken time to call us back , also never making us feel that we have bothered him with trivial questions, he has always seemed to me to not only be a doctor who is compassionate and caring , but a doctor that has been a friend to her through the years..taking the time to hear her personal concerns. We appreciate all that he does for her.

Best Dr. in Gadsden,Alabama and the surrounding area. He is very thorough and listens to what you have to say. He will ask if you want to see a specialist not just send you off to one regardless. He checks the medicine you are on before writing a prescription. Just a really good doctor. Thank you Dr. Iyer for taking such good care of me.
