Based on multiple visits over several years, I am confident that Dr. Syed is knowledgeable and skilled. He has been willing to discuss a range of treatment options and considerations. He makes excellent use of the specialized knowledge of his colleagues and the excellent support staff at Austin Heart. Online access to appointment notes and test results has been very helpful.

EVERY ONE OF MY EXPERIENCES WITH DR. SYED HAVE BEEN VERY POSITIVE! MY DAD DIED OF AN IRREGULAR HEARTBEAT AT AGE OF 56. SO, MY BOTTOM LINE EXPERIENCE WITH DR. SYED IS THAT HE HAS SAVED MY LIFE! HE CORRECTED MY IRREGULAR HEARTBEAT AND ADDED, HOPEFULLY, 20-30 MORE YEARS TO MY LIFE! I AM 73 YEARS OLD. NOW I MAY GET TO SEE MY GRANDCHILDREN , SOMETHING MY DAD MISSED OUT ON. ALSO, HE IS NOT A "CUTTER". PAT REHMET WIMBERLEY

I've seen Dr. Syed for 6 years now & I'll never see another Cardiologist. He's professional, patient, listens to you completely, & cares. He explains everything without all the medical terms so you understand 100%. Also, I've never felt rushed with Dr. Syed. The staff at Austin Heart is also very kind, professional, & patient.
