Similar to the review above,I am 64 years old & have had dozens of physicians provide care for me over the years.Due to a change in insurance coverage,it was necessary for me to find a new rheumatologist.Dr Syed came very highly recommended to me by my nephrologist who has cared for me for over 20 years.I had my first “New Patient” appointment with Dr Syed today and was extremely impressed with her demeanor, knowledge,communication skills & overall professionalism. I’m confident in my choice.

She requires a referral. The patient’s knowledge of his chronic arthritis doesn’t count. I am frustrated with doctors who don’t trust their patient’s knowledge. I have been diagnosed with osteoarthritis over and over. Why do I need one more diagnosis before she will see me.

I'm a 66 year old male who has had numerous doctors over the years. Without question, Dr Syed the best doctor I have ever had. She is extremely professional, knowledgeable, understanding, a good listener and friendly.
