I heard he left the area...he's nuts and we don't need him anyway. Best thing that could happen. He's a quack!!! He's too quick to give Ritalin to children who don't need it. Parents can't handle their kids so they take them to him and he prescribes Ritalin. He also prescribed Tylenol w/ CODINE to a two year old for a cough. What to h**l is that?
Just saying!!!

Kids Korner is an awesome pediatricians office, and the nurses are intelligent and focused on the children in their care. Though, they are nothing compared dr. Snyder. :)

My son was born 5-31-11, and dr iqball picked up on his heart defect, if dr iqball would have sent me home with my son he would have died on me within 24 hours, my son under went open heart surgery at 9 days old, and i am VERY VERY VERY thankful that dr iqball picked up on it and saved my sons life!

i have mixed emotions about him, ive been bringing my child to him for 2 years or so now and sometimes he diagnoses the problems but hes also wrote me about 4 scripts then when I get to the pharmacy they tell me they cant even give me them because my child isnt anywhere near old enough to get that kind of medicine.. so it kinda makes you wonder. I dunno, some nurses act like they truly care and others seem to act like its just a paycheck to them.

Dr Iqbal and his family moved to Maine. I was told this by Kids Korner staff. He was a good doctor. He was the ONLY dr. I would see out of all the dr. that have been @ Kids Korner for the past 9 yrs. Now they see Dr Zysik. She is very good!!!!

It drives me insane when people act like they know anything about prescribing medications and how every dr is wrong... If you're so smart, why bring your child to the dr at all? You already know what meds he should have and what his diagnosis is, so save your time and get the meds you KNOW are the right ones. Give me a break .

OMG Iqbal is retarded! I brought my son snowboarding and he fell down and whip lashed his neck. For about a month he would crack his neck cause it hurt. I took him to see Iqbal to see what he could do for him, ya know what he did? Handed me a prescription for Tourette's Syndrome. I laughed in his face and ripped up the script and threw it at him, he doesn't know shit!

what was the prescription for? How do you know it was for tourette's? Did you bring him somewhere else, and what did they do for you?

my children went to dr iqbal since they have been very young.. Personally i like him he saved my daughters life for those of you who dont like him you are allowed to have your own opinion yes drs screw up they are only human. But i really like him and until he does wrong to my children my opinion on him at this time is he's a good dr. Sorry to those of you who he wasn't good with i would feel the same way these are our children and we love them and protect them with everything we have and thats it all i have to say.

I have had issues with all the doctors at kids Korner and have moved to a new pediatrician. With iqbal, I had issues with the medicine prescribed making my child more sick (a clinic visit to canton confirmed and fixed it) on more than one occasion. With Zysik, she never listened and gave advice that made other doctors cringe. Gupta was the only I felt cared for the child as well as took the parents feedback. Gupta has his own office now.

What bothers me more is that kids Korner is so bogged down because they take Medicaid. Medicaid doesn't pay much and requires a lot of paperwork. Being the only office I know of that takes it puts them at a disadvantage financially and makes it hard for them to keep good doctors.

yes he left the area, the massena hospital was basically not paying him enough even though he was working overtime.

As always there is a lot of speculation. I haven't confirmed anything I've heard so far. Either way I'm indifferent. I agree he was over worked. That may be why he made the mistakes he did with my child. I just don't take excuses when it comes to my children's health.

I did see him and his family in town a few days ago. Maybe visiting?
