About Dr. Islam

Philosophy of care

My philosophy in treating patients is not only evaluating the signs and symptoms of a disease, but also looking at the person as a whole and connecting with them - for this is an integral part of the healing process.

Why I entered medicine

I was brought up in the environment where the medical profession is considered most noble. I feel lucky to have enjoyed the company of doctors in my neighborhood. I was very impressed by their ethics and professionalism. They served not only as a role model for me but also guided me toward achieving my goals.

Community involvement

I lead an interfaith dialogue for the Muslim Association of the Lehigh Valley at the Islamic Center in Whitehall, Pa.

Personal interests

I have three children who keep me busy with their sports and activities. I also love American football and loved the Colts when I was in Indianapolis, the Bills when I was in Buffalo and now the Eagles here.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
