I strong­ly believe in a holis­tic approach towards my patients, which includes col­lab­o­ra­tion with not only with the fam­i­ly but with the pri­ma­ry care physi­cian as well. I feel that men­tal health is strong­ly relat­ed to on going med­ical issues and requires immense atten­tion to improve the health of my patients. I believe in main­tain­ing strong rap­port with my patients to cul­ti­vate pos­i­tive behav­ioral changes and moti­vate them to lead a bet­ter life.

"I really like Dr. Iqbal a lot and she cares about my mental state of mind. She listens and asks questions. Dr. Is very pleasant and puts you at ease right away. My husband comes in with me because I am hard of hearing and cannot always understand what is being said with masks on. So, she will listen to my husband's comments. She has taken the time to slow down in her questions to see if I can understand her better. She is very caring and concerned for me and figures out what she can do to help me and my situation. She is very professional and thorough in her questions. I am so grateful that Duly has this service provided for people like me. I like that you can make an appointment that fits your schedule. I feel very blessed having her as my psychiatrist."
