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.

10/09/2017
questions are addressed through My Chart texts. I don't like this process but understand the reasoning for it. Dr Iqbal staff could do a better job. I get the feeling they resent me being there and that I might need something that would require some work on their part. however they are 100 times better than the last woman I they had, she finally left! the desk areas for exam rooms could be cleaner brighter. there is dust on some of the equipment. the chairs in the waiting room and the carpet are dirty looking.

Dr. Iqbal and his staff are amazing. I have the utmost respect for them all. Dr. Iqbal not only truly listens during an appointment; but I have never once felt that he is rushing to get to the next patient. He allows for any questions or concerns that come up. His assistant [...] is also just so friendly and helpful. Additionally, Dr. Iqbal replies to the emails (via MyChart) in an amazingly timely manner. I have nothing but the highest praises to speak of him and his staff!

the office staff don't want to handle calls it is difficult to get through and I seldom get an answer so I don't try and my Doc doesn't answer questions that may require a longer explanation, one that would educate me. All in all I like my Doc very much especially when I compare him to other Docs iv had..

Dr. Iqbal is very open in communications and to questions/information regarding my medications.
100

06/15/2017
Great experience all together. The wait time is always very minimal and everyone is extremely nice. The only thing I would like to add that I think would better customer satisfaction is if someone is going in for a routine physical, the receptionist or whomever is taking the appointment should mention that the customer fast before their visit. No one told me I had to fast before my appointment so now I have to take another trip back to get my blood work done.
100

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.
100

02/22/2017
I just started with this provider, on [...] but I can say that I am extremely satisfied with my assigned physician, the assistants, receptionist. Doctor is great.

I love Dr Iqbal
90

02/07/2017
very difficult to get through to the provider by phone for scheduling appointments or other needs
100

01/31/2017
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.
100

01/30/2017
very good

Dr. Iqbal is a very good MD. He listens, asks the right questions and goes over the options to be sure I understand -
100

01/11/2017
very good and no plm
90

01/08/2017
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

01/04/2017
My physician provides very good to excellent care. Does not generally have specific knowledge for referrals for specialists; i.e., 2nd opinions.
90

12/20/2016
I should be able to get an itemized receipt at the time of my visit.
100

12/07/2016
Medicare will not permit more than a 15 minute visit which is absurd if you have an issue to discuss
100

11/30/2016
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.
80

11/28/2016
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.
100

11/24/2016
I absolutely adore Dr. Iqbal. He treats me like an intelligent human being and never discounts my views on my medical care.
