What People Say About Dr. Syed Munzir, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr Munzir is a wonderful physician with a great reputation. His office staff however are terrible. Basically in a nut shell, I was told they are too understaffed to check on approvals on tests from insurance companies. I have been waiting over 30 days to get approval for a test. I called the insurance and they said it should only take two days for approval. The office lady said they sent the request in, and would resubmit. In addition, I received a take home device, and it had no batteries in it. When I returned the device, the lady said, " Well, that's our office manager for you." Just horrible office staff.
