The wait time is kind of ridiculous at his office. Every time I had seen the Dr. he treats me like I am an inconvenience. Anytime I have asked any questions, I’ve been treated like I am stupid or annoying. Overall, it’s a terrible experience every time I have an appointment.

Not impressed with their follow up with patients, got my results on 12/18 was scheduled for 12/10 but they cancelled it, and still don't have a CPAC machine. Can't talk to anybody and get a straight answer, of when I will get one. I called the office at 770-345-0070 recording says please call during office hours, I called at 3:30 on a Monday?, left a message and no one calls back. Dr. Niaz indicated I had a very severe condition of sleep apnea , would think they would be more pro-active.

Glad I did not "listen" to the other reviews! Selected doctor based on his education and years of practice. Front desk was friendly and efficient. Back office assistant was cheerful and did my preliminary check quickly. Dr Niaz listened to my symptoms, did a very through exam, and TOGETHER we mapped out a plan for further testing and follow up. Very pleased on all accounts. I was an RN for 36 years and have seen alot of uncaring doctors. Dr Niaz is definitely one of the good ones

I found Dr. Niaz and his staff to be rude, abrupt and uninterested or too busy to review my records, labs etc.. only interested in ordering more of what’s already recently been done. Worst bedside manner that I’ve seen in a physician in years, and I’m a nurse! Do yourself a favor and travel further to find a caring neurologist, he isn’t it.

Worst doctor experience i have ever had. Ran many tests...didn't explain why. Never got explanation of results. Schedules each test on different days. You have to keep going back and paying office copay. Won't send me copy of my reports. If i could give no stars, I would. Was yelling at his staff in front of me at one point. Not good. Actually spent very little time with the doc. Spent more time with technicians who can't answer questions.

I love this office. Dr. Niaz and staff are extremely easy to work with as well as schedule with. Dr. Niaz himself truly listens to your issues and cares. I would definitely recommend him to anyone needing neurology or sleep medicine assistance.
