Specialties

Dr. Arshad Iqbal has the following 2 specialties

  • Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine

    An osteopath is a physician who is trained in the philosophy of osteopathic medicine. These doctors have a D.O. degree which stands for Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, as opposed to M.D. for Medical Doctor.
    Osteopathic medicine differs from conventional medicine, which is sometimes referred to as allopathic medicine, in that they incorporate a type of manual therapy called Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM) into their treatment in which they manipulate the spine in order to relieve pain when other methods have not been successful. This is reflective of the philosophical difference between the two types of physicians; osteopaths are trained to treat the body as a whole in the belief that the body is structured with the ability to heal itself while medical doctors treat specific illnesses or symptoms.
    Overall, osteopaths and medical doctors in the US are both equally qualified to treat patients and they work in the same settings and provide the same treatments.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.

Dr. Iqbal does not spend enough time with patient. I am however billed from the time I go in the room but the visit is not more than 3-5 minutes and it doesn't seem like he's hearing what I have to say. For some reason he continually hires secretaries who either don't like their job or are just miserable. Their phone manner is terrible and they are not realizing that we the ill patients are the ones who pay their salaries and don't deserve attitude when we call by empathy and compassion.

Rude, lazy and incompetent staff. Good luck getting them to do anything. Dr. Iqbal himself seemed to have a plesant bedside manner although I did feel very rushed during an appointment when he was running late.
