Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety. However, language that may contain profanity, slander, libel or private health information is removed. Comments reflect the views and opinions of patients. Comments are not endorsed by, nor do they necessarily reflect the views of, Providence.

I'm currently trying with great gusto to get CT results from Dr. Iqbal. I had a CT scan done on Monday and have yet to receive the results. I also had blood work taken on Monday but have already received those results. I've contacted his office assistant, [...], 3 times and I have still not heard from Dr. Iqbal. [...] has told me she has requested the results from them and she only received them today (Thursday) I called the lab myself ([...]) and was informed they sent my labs on Tuesday afternoon. I contacted her again to ask about this. She insisted she only received the results today. I've had other problems with [...] in the past and believe [...] over her. My hesitation of recommending Iqbal has more to do with his staff than him.

02/06/2017
very difficult to get through to the provider by phone for scheduling appointments or other needs
100

01/30/2017
I switched healthcare providers because I was not comfortable with my previous provider in the same office. I felt he was too judgmental with a poor bedside manner--almost as if he disliked his job and maybe even his patients. I liked Dr. Iqbal much better. He was very friendly which I think is important. (As a side note, I have seen a couple of doctors in that office for different reasons. If I had a choice, I would not go back to either of them.) The front office is VERY good.

very good and no plm

01/07/2017
I thought the physical exam was not very thorough or comprehensive. Hardly any of my body was looked at or tested. I love my doctor but think the checkup should be more thorough. if I had a cancerous growth, lump, or skin cancer, it wouldn't have been caught for most areas of my body.
80

01/03/2017
My physician provides very good to excellent care. Does not generally have specific knowledge for referrals for specialists; i.e., 2nd opinions.

12/19/2016
I should be able to get an itemized receipt at the time of my visit.
100

12/06/2016
Medicare will not permit more than a 15 minute visit which is absurd if you have an issue to discuss
100

11/29/2016
Can I rate Dr. Iqbal higher than 10? He's fantastic and had to replace another amazing physician I had seen since 1998, Dr. [...]. I feel very fortunate that I have been able to connect with such awesome physicians.

11/27/2016
Should get better specialist...OB/GYN..& others closer to Canoga Park, Ca Hope that the Dr.'s nurse returns call & leave the reply messages instead of no return calls.

Dr. Iqbal is simply the best. I have never had a doctor before where I looked forward to going to an appointment. He is attentive, intelligent, honest (even if you don't want to hear the news i.e. exercise more), patient and just amazing!

Was going in to ask about urgent care because my regular Dr was on vacation. The clerk, instead, got me to this Dr right then. He took me in during a lull in his schedule, and treated me as if I was his regular patient. Praises to the Clerk and to the Dr. for this experience.

Dr. Iqbal is excellent. Very knowledgeable regarding my history and current state of health. Extremely easy to communicate with. Only negative is the government required forms, information required, etc. Not within the providers control
100

07/19/2016
great Dr.
60

07/08/2016
The doctor seems to care but does not seem to have reviewed my records before visit - reviews records on the fly. His assistant goes thru the motions, gives the impresion that patients are an inconvience to her. The doctor will say that his staff will provide a prescription form or a referal form before I leave office ... this NEVER happens. Like the doctor but he is unaware or does not care that his staff doesn't follow thru or seem to care.
100

07/01/2016
All perfect

06/30/2016
First time visiting this physician. I left my former doctor due to inattentiveness and a laissez-faire attitude about my concerns. I flt Dr. Iqbal listened and paid attention but more importantly, was pro-active in his approach to investigating what may be going on.

Dr. Iqbal is a honest, friendly and knowledgable person.

06/15/2016
First checkup in some time after switching insurance. This Physician and his entire staff bowled me over with concern, attention, and professionalism. If I had know how well I would have been treated, I would have seen him sooner. I have a scientific undergraduate degree, and know a large number of physicians. This physician impressed me with every aspect of our interaction. Can't shower him with enough praise.
100

06/07/2016
The best provider I have ever been to. Dr. Iqbal shows that he cares your well-being.

Dr Iqbal is patient and caring physician. He strives to answer all questions and never makes me feel rushed.
100

05/10/2016
if Dr Iqbal and his team were not covered under my current insurance plan, I would most definitely seek out an insurance plan that did. I have been under his care for years now, I trust him implicitly, and believe he has my best interests in mind at all times.
100

05/10/2016
[...] dr. Iqbal is the best he's treated me with respect honesty and is always concerned with my health I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for an outstanding doctor also I consider him a friend
90

05/01/2016
Whenever my prescriptions come up for renewal, [...] claims they call the doctor's office for a renewal, but the renewal never happens until I intervene and call your central facility. This has not always been the case there seems to be a break down somewhere in the process.
100

04/27/2016
Very efficient and expedite results!
80

04/27/2016
I like the Dr. and have confidence in him but I don't feel he's very interested. I feel that his assistant is very disinterested. Communication through the web site is awful. It takes several tries to get answers. I only se the Dr. when I need a check up because I feel it important to wait for the same Dr. […]

04/26/2016
was very happy that i could get an immediate appointment with dr. iqbal after my fall the night before,

The reason I don't have someone calling me re:test results is because I use the online my chart feature. I also use it to have questions answered by Dr. Iqbal. He is very quick to respond. Very kind and sensitive doctor.

100

03/02/2016
Very good at reviewing my overall health status and double-checking with me on referrals ordered previously, e.g., mammogram. Reviews labs ordered for the appt and answers my questions about them.
