Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

My mother had been receiving at home hospice with a group that uses Dr. Syed. Dr. Syed was "insulted" due to my becoming upset over a request for medication that went unanswered (according to my caregiver for a week). Out of pure spite and whilst refusing to even speak with me about it, he summarily and immediately withdrew services from my 93 year old mother. The man's ego far surpasses both his competency and his humanity. There really should be a negative star rating for this particular "professional."

My mother passed away in Parkplace Nursing home after sitting in a chair eight (8) hours with a broken hip while nurses tried to reach Dr. Syed (whom didn't return their urgent calls until 10 AM the next day after her fall). If you have a love one this has happened to contact TX DFPS to file a report.
