What People Say About Dr. Shahid Riaz, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

This has been the worst experience at any Doctors office I have ever had. We were referred to him after my mother suffered a stroke. When we get there on our appointment we waited for two and a half hours. When he finally comes in the room he asks my mom why is she there for. I thought it was a weird question but the reality was he really didn't know. I told him my mother suffered a stroke we were referred to you by her primary. His response was he didn't get her records so he didn't know what they had done to my mom. So he didn't know how to help. He proceeded by rescheduling the appointment and asking my mom to come back with her medical records. We waited 2.5 hours for him to talk to us for about 5mins. At least he was able to squeeze us in for the following week. We got the records and come in for our appointment. Another two hour wait he finally comes in. Guess what happens next. Yes the records were "not as detailed as he would've liked" his words. He prescribed her meds for head

The worse office employe'es in Davenport FL. Refused to see my love one after just being released from hospital with a seizure. Had appt. But said we did not. Would not even go ask doctor to work him in. Terrible Office Help. Had door locked at 9am and feet propped up on desk.

Dr. Riaz is a kind and easy to talk to. I feel my care is his main concern. HOWEVER the girls in his office are anything but caring and kind. they accept hmo's but do NOTHING to help patients with referrals Working in the medical field for 30 years, I am appalled at their laziness and indifference to patients. God help Dr Riaz.

DR. RIAZ IS A HIGHLY SKILLED NEUROLOGIST AND ATTENTIVE TO HIS PATIENTS ISSUES AND CONCERNS. HE LISTENS TO PATIENTS COMMENTS AND PERFORMS NEEDED TESTS TO CONFIRM A DIAGNOSIS. MEDICATIONS ARE PRESCRIBED TO REDUCE OR ELIMINATE PAIN AND DISCOMFORT. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND DR. RIAZ AND HIS STAFF ARE ALWAYS COURTEOUS AND SUPPORTIVE. THANK-YOU DR, RIAZ FOR YOUR EXCELLENT CARE.

They don't answer the phone, it goes to an automated voice mail, and no returned calls. I am going to let them know in my second appointment and if that is the case, Moving forward to another office. So far, not impressed with their level of patient follow ups

Do NOT disregard the reviews on the staff. They are absolutely terrible. Not friendly, over schedule constantly, there has yet to be an appointment where I haven't waited 45 minutes to see the doctor. Recently had an emergency where I needed the doctor's advice and for 2 days I called 30+ times with false hopes of them telling him and he never got back. When I'm there in the waiting the room the phone rarely goes off let alone all day. Doctor himself is great and knows what he's talking about it

Honestly and truly, disregard reviews prior. Many people claim the office is far too busy, far too inneficient, and far too unaccommodating. I beg to differ. Staff here aim only to be at your service, to help, they are very professional and great and you can see they care for you as a patient. After undergoing several syncapes and looking for quick appointments with very well trained proffesionals, this medical facility was exacty what i needed. Great Dr and staff

We walked in the only light that was on was the light coming in the windows with blinds. Had a TV but it was so soft couldn't hear. My wife needed a drink of water because of coughing and the 2 drinking fountains were not working. My appointment was for 2:00 and we finally got in the back at 4:00 then waited another 15mins. before the doctor came in. Didn't really tell us much we didn't already know. I would not recomend because of the waiting time.

Worse Doctor ever!!! I went to see Dr. Raiz, Nov 2015 for mucular issues I was having. The doctor have no bedside manners, give me no chance to speak and explain my condition but immediately dismiss everything I was trying to tell him. He finally ordered blood works for me. Test came back positive for Myasthenia Gravis but his office did not call me back in. I could have started treatment immediately but didn't start treatment until 9 months later when I found a neurologist in Clermont

Had my 1st visit with his office at 1pm. Did not get back until 3:30pm waited 2.5 hours in his waiting room. Tell me how is that justifiable?

Scheduled a 12 o'clock appointment did not get into 1:30 to find out they leave you waiting in the back room for even longer while taking other patients, Was very disappointed with first appointment will not go back I walk out after hearing you take 2 more patients in front of me and asked for my copayment back

Arrived at office. Staff very rude. Waited 2.5 hours to see dr. Lobby extremely cold. Some waiting went outside to get in their cars due to cold lobby. Saw dr, he did not seem to care about rude staff or wait that I went through. Will tell all my friends not to go to him. Too bad I can't give zero stars out of five.
