Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

×Post a ResponseAre you Dr. Syed Ahmed, DPM?
Rude!! He was 40 minutes late for my appointment, and had NO clue why i needed to be seen, yet his nurse screened myle thouroughly before he came in. He entered my room agitated and as for my health concerns he just shrugged it off, and told me i was wasting his time. He NEVER examined me, he only wanted a urine sample (up charge for insurance) only to NOT discuss what that showed. i think hes just in it for the money..far from a caregiver, dont trust him with your kids! Terrible physician!!
