Posted OnDecember 19, 2022

Altru is pleased to announce Iqbal Masood, M.D., has been awarded the Provider of the Quarter for Quarter 3 of 2022.

“Dr. Masood is an exceptional physician. His attention to detail and the care he provides is extraordinary,” shared Dr. Josh Deere, president of Altru. “He is an ideal team member, stepping up in a time of need for his team and their patients.”

Dr. Masood’s thoroughness and thoughtfulness is appreciated and noticed by his patients.

“Dr Masood is one of the best caring physicians at Altru. He is patient, kind and knows all about your medical history when he walks in the door,” explained one patient. “I couldn't have a better nephrologist than Dr Masood. He knows his stuff and explains it thoroughly. He deserves 10+ for his rating if you had that as an option.”

Other patients just know their healthcare experience with Dr. Masood was exceptional.

One patient shared, “Dr. Masood is the very best doctor I have ever had. I don't know what I would do without him and his commitment to me and my health.”

“Best experience ever!” asserted another patient of Dr. Masood’s.

And maybe the most coveted recognition for providers is the willing of their patients to refer loved ones to them.

“Dr Masood is very thorough. I recommend him to everyone,” said yet another patient of Dr. Masood’s.

Dr. Masood shares his philosophy of medicine, “The patient comes first. My goal is to keep my patient well informed of the plan, keep them involved at every level of care and formulate a management plan which fits their lifestyle. My philosophy is to keep them on minimum medications, if possible.”

Dr. Masood attended medical school at Dow Medical College in Karachi, Pakistan. He completed his residency at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center in Atlantic City, N.J.; his hospital medicine fellowship at Cleveland Clinic Foundation in Cleveland, Ohio; and his nephrology fellowship at Lankenau Medical Center in Wynnewood, Pa. His areas of clinical interest are chronic kidney disease, hypertension, electrolyte disturbances, dialysis and transplant care.

The Provider of the Quarter recipient is selected after reviewing survey results submitted by patients. Altru started this award in 2021 as a way to recognize outstanding care given by Altru providers.
