Best doctors appointment I’ve been to in a while. I love a great and informative doctor. Hate when doctors just medicate me and this doctor was truly different didn’t want me to be medicated at all. Just wanted me to remain calm and remember to breath always ????

I got to Dr. Fouzia Syed office at 4:30PM. I filled out all my paper work. They told me I have to pay a co payment . I had a difference card dollars which pays for half of what I owe. Her assistants told me they do not take credit cards. I did not see any signs in her facility stating cash only nor was it mentioned on her page .If knew that before hand I would not have booked her.

Dr. Syed was great, although some of her understanding of my medical history was inaccurate (example, recorded a deceased relative inaccurately). She's polite, professional, and helpful. The negatives of my visit were that 1) you have to pay the co-pay in cash, and 2) the wait time was long and the overall reception interaction felt impersonal.

Dr. was very nice and sweet however the receptionist(s) can have a better attitude. They seemed very impatient and had me feel uncomfortable talking to them due to their attitude. It also seemed like it was a problem that I didn't have change for my co pay. The receptionist didn't even look at me when giving back change. Very uncomfortable.

I like Dr. Fouzia Syed very much--she is kind, knowledgable, and really seems to listen. Also, she gave me a shot (vaccination), and it was virtually painless. From my two visits so far, I'd highly recommend her.

The receptionists are very unhelpful & the dr wouldn’t give me a script until I got a pregnancy test even though I am not pregnant and will not get my period for 2 months because of my birth control. Overall, very friendly and nice woman but I will never go there again as I left without the prescription for what I came in for & was symptomatic of. — waste of time and money.

The doctor is nice enough, but not terribly thorough or exceptionally helpful. The staff are just checked out. They don't respect the patients and make you wait to check your insurance every time you go there. I'm not planning on going back.

I had an unpleasant experience from start to finish. The receptionists in the waiting room let others skip ahead of me while was waiting in line to get seen (they seemed to have recognized each other, so it seemed like preference was given). Dr. Syed was kind, though she did have some homophobic and opinionated things to say about some of the standard questions youd expect from a doctor (i.e. Relating to sexual history). She borderline shamed me for being a former smoker and drinker. I also didnt get a prescription refilled the way my previous doctor used to because it felt like she didn't think it was right for me to get it. I am unhappy with the treatment I received and wish that I could have gone somewhere else.

She was very sweet and asked me plenty of questions so I could get the most out of my appointment. She seemed genuinely engaged and motivated me to stay on top of my health! The wait was like 15 minutes max and you could tell she aimed to provide quality medical attention. I'm sticking to her as my new PCP after bouncing around trying to find a good one!
