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.

"Dr. Iqbal knows I wear cochlear implants and that it is hard to hear her with a mask on. She is very patient and with my husband's help (he comes with me on my visits), I am able to understand the questions she asks me. She is very professional and really knowledgeable in her field. Having her as my doctor was the best thing. She monitors me very well. I would highly recommend Dr. Iqbal to anyone who would require her service. She is approachable and very personable. You can see that she really cares about your well-being. A great asset to Duly Health and Care."
