Shaigan Iqbal, MDBoard Certified Anesthesiologist / Board Certified Pain Specialist

    Dr. Shaigan Iqbal was born in NJ, and has lived on the NY/NJ border his entire life. After finishing his Pain Management training in Syracuse, NY, his goal was always to return home. Dr. Iqbal enjoys spending time with his wife, family, and friends. He enjoys outdoor activities like biking, running, snowboarding, soccer, and especially Ultimate Frisbee (even though it’s so hard to find enough people to play a game…). He enjoys reading and has been on a Science Fiction and Fantasy genre kick for the past 5 years (Fantasy authors write ridiculously long books, and he’s been stuck on the Wheel of Time for 2 years now…). Finally, Dr. Iqbal, more than anything, is an avid consumer of food, will never turn down pizza, and is always on the hunt for the best ice cream place (currently taking recommendations)!

    Fun Fact:

    Dr. Iqbal’s first job was as a Martial Arts Instructor!
