I was referred to Dr Syed by my primary care physician. After submitting questionnaire about my health regarding the residual CVA effects, he stated I never had a stroke at that time he felt the only thing wrong with me was that I had carpal tunnel. Dr Syed gave me about a 10-minute assessment in his office. I reiterated to him the week in the hospital, the referral, supporting documentation, the numerous I MRIS, etc. He then stated to me again that he felt that I just have carpal tunnel.

My husband had an appt with Dr. Sayed. We waited an hour to see him. My husband was very aggravated by this and let the staff know and the doctor. The doctor explained that he had taken on the patients of 3 other doctors, therefore causing the delay. He said it was the system that was causing the delays, not him personally. I've run into this with every specialist we've been to. The doctors wear themselves very thin. We do like Dr. Sayed as a doctor.

The last time I had an appointment, I waited one hour and 20 minutes before he walked in to the door - for all of about 2 minutes. He did not even apologize for keeping me waiting. His arrogance leads him to believe that WE are there for HIM, not the other way around. I am in the process of shopping around for another neurologist. I wouldn't recommend Dr. Syed to anyone. He also needs to move the waiting room chair AWAY from the desk window, to enable privacy with patients checking in/out
