I wouldn't recommend a dog go to this practice. Upon my initial visit I was told I don't write scripts for pain, "excuse me"... I a wasn't there for that however it wasn't the experience with the doctor that was not the issue. His staff is incompetent, why does it take the prescription MA so long to do nothing. Six months working on an approval that was never obtained. Then you release me from practice with explanation. Very poor patient relations. Sorry I ever went there.

Dr. Syed and his staff do not follow up on messages left and discussions with staff. I talked with Dr. Syed's office staff on Monday about a problem with a referral to a surgeon for debridement of a leg wound that he made for a family member. The staff member transferred me to leave a message stating someone would get back to me. It's now Thursday and I have not heard a word. I called the office again today, and they are closed. Very, very poor follow through and care for their patients.

We found Dr. Syed to be friendly and competent enough. The Office Staff seems to have problems with communication and understanding when there is more than one medical insurance involved. They solve communication problems by being belligerent and refusing to listen. This is base off my personal experience and the experience of Health Advocate who tried to get back copays I paid erroneously at their Office Manager's insistence. They won't file the secondary insurance out of spite.

good staff and Dr Syed is great. He listens and explains everything well. Very glad I found him!

Horrible new patient experience. Dr. Syed's office asked me to reschedule my appointment because his name was not on my insurance print out. My first thought was why not? so I got on the phone with the insurance company--to confirm my coverage and suggested they talk to the office clerk, the office clerk responded with we can't talk with the insurance agent. She was just following office protocol. Shouldn't patient care be Drs priority?
