I've been seeing Dr Syed for several years. Initially, I was not impressed but due to insurance restrictions, I stayed with him. Over the past few years, my experience and opinion has changed. He's hired knowledgable and congenial assistance, incorporated online technology for appointment setting, and notifications. The wait times in-office are still too long, but other than that, I've become quite pleased with this practice!

Dr. Syed is an excellent doctor who seems to genuinely care about his patient. He took time to listen to my medical issues and did not try to hurry me out. His staff is efficient, friendly, and thorough. I would recommend him as a PCP to anyone.
