I’m upset at the last review comment because I have been a patient of Dr M. Iqbal for a while and he is the
best specialist I have known so far. He is moving to Abbotsford and I don't expect him to follow
headache patients to Abbotsford. The day I learnt he was moving, I was nearly in tears :( he will be
terribly missed. I had brutal headaches last year and went to local doctors 7 times!I was told it was bad
migraine. I actually collapsed in my kitchen with paralysis and my family drove me to Kamloops ER and
Dr Iqbal was on duty.The moment he walked into the room, I knew I was in good hands. He is not just
cute looking, but also an amazing personality with great sense of humour and bed side manners. After
tests it came out I had sagittal vein thrombosis and I was moved to the stroke unit. Later on he
discovered I had factor V leiden mutation ; a very rare condition and I’m now doing so well after his
treatment. His diagnosis was spot on, and I owe my life to this genius ! As my Gp says ‘good doctors are
difficult to come by’ and most patients want to see them -and hence there will be issues surrounding
long waiting lists and follow-ups
Drops Clinents without follow ups. Gives out medication without a plan to reduce them off it caused me to have the worst 10 days of my life!! Couldn't eat for days. Nausated for two weeks. Caused my headaches to increase severly for the entire time I was detoxing off his medication plan after dropping me. Don't recommended him at all!!!!!!!
I have been going to Dr. Iqbal for about a year. He was very good at explaining my condition and what could be done about it, in a way that I could understand. He didn't try to rush through the visits either but gave me plenty of time to ask questions. He readily made referrals to other specialist's as needed.
My only complaint was that several times I would leave messages at his office on their answering machine, but his staff was very bad at calling me back. I would have to keep calling and be persistent if I really wanted a question answered. They seem to rarely pick up the phone but instead let it go to voice mail. At one point I was uncertain of how much medication I needed to take as I was trying to ramp off a heavy duty drug, but as I couldn't get hold of anyone at his office after several tries, I just followed my pharmacist's recommendation and did it on my own.
As a doctor he is excellent and will be missed very much. I assume he will need to get new office staff in Abbotsford, so that problem should go away.
I was recently diagnosed with RRMS after suffering for many years with symptoms that were previously misdiagnosed by another local neurologist.
Doctor Iqbal was very thorough and helpful in coming to the correct conclusion of my symptoms and current relapse.
Obviously with a lot to absorb with this new step he has been very supportive and keeps me well informed of how to proceed with treatment and assured me that this is something we are going to tackle together.
It's unfortunate that he is moving his practice to Abbotsford but I have every intention of maintaining my treatment through his office.
Nothing but great things to say of him and anyone who has the benefit of him caring for them is a lucky individual through a difficult transition.
I was diagnosed with Epilepsy 18 years ago as a child. After seeing a different neurologist in Kamloops, who experimented with my condition, I felt a huge amount of distrust towards him and neurology in general! I continued with my medication but didn't go back to see a specialist for 10 years. I developed a great deal of anxiety around my condition that I did not understand or face until recently. I decided it was time to take charge of my health and I went to see Dr. Iqbal instead of the other neurologist. He was extremely sensitive to my mental health, very factual, and reassuring. He transitioned me to a new medication without any problem. He helped me to better understand my condition and provided me with a great deal of information. He was aware and knowledgeable of other drug and supplement interactions and had a very holistic approach to treatment. He gave me choices and explained them all clearly with professional input and personal experience. He made me feel important and valued and was kind and gentle in his approach. Seeing Dr. Iqbal has truly helped me on my journey of living with a neurological disorder.
Our son suffered a brain injury seven years ago due to being struck by a vehicle. Countless visits to doctors of varying specialties left us with more questions than answers. Upon our first visit with Dr. Iqbal; it was apparent that we had finally landed on a doctor that was not only prepared to help us but was prepared to listen as well. His approach to medicine is top notch and he has been able to open doors to further specialists that we were not even aware of. We were made to feel very welcome as soon as we stepped into the reception area. The gal there made us feel at home and at ease. Thank you folks both!!
I am in Vernon and have gone to see Dr. Iqbal a number of times which I don't mind, but he was very concerned about the drive. He tried very hard to deal with my chronic headaches and said to come see him if I got worse or was heading that way. He made things sound so casual there which I really liked. Just a down to earth doctor. My husband and I really like him. So far my headaches are not gone but he has helped a lot. He referred me to the pain clinic in Kelowna and I am now trying different things which do help some. Thank you Dr. Iqbal for believing in me and trying to help me as you have done.
