Short and sweet. Dr. Iqbal diagnosed the problem and gave me the needed prescription and I was out the door in about 10 minutes. His staff was very friendly and helpful as well

Dr. Iqbal was fantastic! After years of being prescribed incorrect medicine by other doctors who did not have a firm understanding of my issue, Dr. Iqbal in my first visit correctly identified the cause of my ear issues. If you want a shiny office with a modern lobby, you might be disappointed. However, if you want excellent medical care by an outstanding practitioner, with a friendly and professional office team, see Dr. Iqbal.

Although ZocDoc lists him as pediatric. He's not. Very evident that he was not accustomed to working with children/babies. He was very sweet and would certainly go there for another adult. But not for children.

The office was built around the 70s and definitely looks like that. Either way, I will be returning. Dr Zafar was very kind an seemed very knowledgeable on the subject so I will not judge this office based on the looks. :D He gave me a medicine to try to see if allergies are my issue -- which is AWESOME because I didn't want to have to get a prescription.

My appointment started right on time. Dr. Iqbal knew what he was doing and was very helpful in explaining what was going on with me. He even had time to stick a laryngoscope down my throat during the appointment. His reception staff was very professional too. I definitly recommend him for all ENT needs.

He seems very old fashioned but knowledgeable. I got the feeling he follows the same script/path of diagnoses for all of his patients. That may not necessarily be a bad thing (I'm not the medical expert--he is), but it made me feel like I was a car at jiffy lube versus a patient receiving comprehensive advice. Despite that, I'd still see him again and recommend him to others.I did not have a bad experience, I just wasn't blown away by my interactions with him.

I am glad that we met this doctor. The patient was my wife, and he did his best to help us finish the required exam to make sure no life threatening complication are involved. When I explained that my wife had a ticket for overseas, he took that notion seriously and helped in saving time. I hesitate to mention my negative experience with other doctors. Instead I try to highlight the good ones. The ones like Dr. Iqbal. meeting him ensures positive energy for the mind as well as the body.

He was very kind and informed. He took his time reading the two pages that I have prepared regarding the patient who was someone other than me. He took the necessary step to guide her for the next step of examination by proper specialist. he told us further technical examination could help him to reach to a correct conclusion. So far so good.
