Dr Syed is very professional and takes he time to listen and explain. He has helped me 1st control of my diabetes.

Excellent doctor , accurate diagnosis, always takes time to answer all questions

Although I like Dr. Syed very much, his staff is driving me away. For some reason only one person on his staff is authorized to tell the patient their lab results. She is always "busy with patients" and does not return phone calls. Well, news flash - I'm a patient, too. Maybe my new doctor can get my test results!

I like Dr. Syed very much, but have to agree with the reviews I read that his staff needs A LOT of improvement. My last visit was actually very good. No wait time and I found the staff helpful. But prior to my last visit, I have to agree it was a very long wait and the office was a mess.

i've been a patient for a good time now but it is getting worse and worse. The staff is the extremely bad. They do not only don't know what they do but they send prescriptions to anybody without previous consultation. Last episode was a couple days ago when my pharmacy called to get a refill prescription and instead of sending it to the pharmacy that was requesting it, they sent it to a totally different pharmacy, generating an expense for me. I am not going back to this office.

This has been the worst doctors experience ever. It's mostly due to the staff. They will not provide you with necessary paperwork, answer the phones. It's just a mess. When we tried to switch to another endocrinology office- they simply would not send over the clinical labs and records, when the other doctor's office sent over a records release form! Do not go to this clinic.

I have been his patient for last few years. He found problems that other doctors couldn't find for many years. Wait time is little more, but it is because he spent time with patients and listen to them and help them as much as he can, rather than in and out like other doctors.

Waiting time is bad Staff is not professional Staff keeps changing which is a sign of bad management Poorly runned office Doctor not involved with patients
in Roswell, GA |
The wait time at this office is absolutely ridiculous. The 3 times I have been there, I'm there for at LEAST 2 hours. The last time I was there ( 2 weeks ago), I had to wait 90 min past my appointment time. If you need a prescription refill, make sure you ask for it in advance. It has been two weeks and they still haven't approved my mail-order prescription. The Dr. acts like he could care less, it seems more about how much he can charge your insurance company.

if there is a 0 I would give this office , front staff horrible horrible , no communication skills at all, unresponsive and rude. Dr, not too involved and caring
in Alpharetta, GA |
I made this appointment to visit Dr. Imran A. Syed at Cumming and no one else by telephone a couple days in advance. On the day of appointment, another person visited my wife without inform us about the situation. The person who is in charge of appointment should inform us in advance or at least when we were at the office. So we could decide to go on or cancel it. I called them and asked about the But manager was very rude and simply said it's normal to change the doctor. I want my money back!
in Alpharetta, GA |
HORRIBLE!!!!!!! When you need a prescription refill, call at least a month ahead of time. Appointments are always late as it is always explained that he Doctors are behind. Nurse station not clean at all. I once saw the previous person's blood still present on Glucose reader. I would suggest going else where for you Diabetic needs.
in Atlanta, GA |
Wait time is ridiculous ... I feel he doesn't follow thru himself with blood work . Has his staff call you. Had an appt with him I thought today they have me in holding room I ask the assistant who I would be seeing and they said the other Dr. I have never seen the other Dr.. And nor do I wish of telling this other person ..
Lawrenceville, GA |
Retroactive discussions on lab results 3 mths old. Office staff calls with results but can't answer questions about conflicting directions from Dr. Syed. Patient not informed why certain actions are taking place. Incomplete chart, e.g. omitted anaphylaxis. Questionable follow-through. Keep the patient barefoot and pregnant mentality. Practice not good for my health so must find alternative.
in Young Harris, GA |
Today was first appt with Dr. Syed, I was very pleased with Dr. Syed and his staff. Dr. Syed was easy to talk to and explained questions in laymen terms I could understand. Staff pleasant and helpful also. Wait time reasonable.
in Cumming, ga |
I've been a patient for 4 years. He's always been wonderful
