Dr. Syed is professional, efficient, straight to the point. He gives great advice no matter how silly my questions are. His staff is excellent. There is never any wait time, and I love the convenience of doing an office visit during my lunch hour. I'm usually in and out of there in less than 30 minutes. I made the best choice for a primary doctor.
Excellent interaction. Dr. Syed obviously cares for each of his patients and truly seems to want to find the best solutions and give the most appropriate direction. Highly recommended!
Always friendly and prompt with appointment times. Good advice given from both nurses and doctors, and all seem very concerned about your well being.
He is very through and listens .I would highly recommend Him as a physician.
He's thorough and wonderful!
Great Staff and helpful environment. As soon as the documentation was completed we were asked to come back to the consultation room. After the nurse, the Doctor walked in a min or two. Very efficient. Talked and understood the issues and suggested the remedy. No push for other unnecessary sale pitch about some procedures or any other selling now a days going on.
Dr. Syed was deeply knowledgable and thoughtful. He explained everything in easy-to-understand terms. His staff was professional, personable, and delightful.
He was great staff was wonderful
I'm glad that Dr.Syed is my doctor! The nurses and staff are great as well...especially Sarah, everytime I come in I always see friendly faces and it makes me more comfortable coming into the building everytime I get my check ups! They also give really good advice and are willing to help me if I have questions or concerns about my health. Thanks for all of you guys help!
Quaint office, easy to find in the office park, attentive and personable staff. It was not busy when I arrived at 2:00pm, I was the only patient in the waiting room, but by the time I left the waiting room was half full. Dr. Syed's team addressed all my concerns and provided above average service in taking a blood draw from me as I sometimes have trouble with needles. It was a quick visit, and I feel comfortable and confident I will visit again. Dr. Syed seemed knowledgeable and took my concerns into account. He has a very calm, soft-spoken demeanor.
Very punctual, friendly doctor with great support staff. My appointment was exactly on time.
I suffer from horrible migraines. My PCP was on vacation and couldn't get into my neurologist until the the end of the month. I was seen in a half an hour--everyone was extremely courteous and Dr. Syed listened and discussed a plan of action. I didn't have to throw myself against the door to get Dr. S to pay attention/care. Five stars!
Dr. Syed is the man.
Very short time. Also Doctor was very proffessional .
Professional and quick resolution. We went for pre-Immigration health check and entire procedure was seamless.
Great experience. Very helpful staff.
It was a good first experience. He was informative and explained things well.
This was absolutely hands Down my best DR's visit. From the receptionist, nurse and The Dr all were extremely personable and efficient. I wish all offices would adopt such practices. I was in and out back to my office before my lunch hour was over. The Dr was very personable and detailed. Just an all around great visit.
Dr. Syed was very pleasant and took the time to fully explain my issue. He was not rushed and listened carefully to me. I will definitely recommend Dr. Syed and will be making him my PCP.
Very fast, took care of me as quickly as possible. Very affordable as well.
First time seeing a new doctor since we moved to the area. I really liked it. The wait wasn't long. The staff was friendly, and The doctor spent some time checking me over and discussing my situation. I will go there again for sure.
Was excellent with answering my questions. I have finally found a great doctor. I highly recommend him.
Excellent doctor - he's the first doctor I ever encountered who takes all his time to be with the patient. He truly cares. He also helped through a very tough period when I had UIT during my pregnancy and my OBGYN messed up with me. He helped me find a specialist and got me an appointment with him immediately.
Dr Syed was very welcoming.He listened to all my questioned and concerns and he addressed all and every one of them. The Staff was very kind, efficient and professional.I had a good choice!
He and his staff are totally dedicated at their job. At the reception they try to assist as fast and accurate as they can. Dr.Syed explained in detail reason of my injury and besides treatment he explained post treatment procedures. Highly recommended.
Great doctor. I would highly recommend him to anyone. He listens well and doesn't sugar coat.
Dr. Syed listened to my problems and helped give me a diagnosis very quickly. He also said if I needed anything, even if it was after hours to call and he would respond within 30 minutes. Will definitely be using Dr. Syed as my primary doctor from now on.
Everyone was extremely friendly and welcoming. Dr. Syed was very kind and professional. He was very helpful and he and the staff encouraged me to reach out if I needed anything.
Dr. Syed has the calm, professional manner one expects in their primary care physician. He is always asking if I have any more questions I need answered and is in no hurry to leave the room. He is also diligent about making sure I am speaking to the right people to have my more specialized concerns addressed, and that I am making follow-up appointments to ensure I'm not off track on my health-related goals. Highly recommended!
Everyone in the office is very helpful . Will be using again in the future . I would recommend to anyone looking for a doctor .
Dr Syed is amazing! I rarely get sick but I am clumsy and I've also seen him for my yearly checkup. He doesn't waste time in getting treatment and is so smart, always giving you the best options for care! This is a great office! You can always get same day appointments too!
Dr. Syed is an amazing physician who actually l istens to you before responding. He is clearly very intelligent and thoughtful and has my best interests at heart. The staff is friendly and available and won't blow you off when you need something taken care of.. My entire family comes to Dr. Syed and I would recommend this office to anyone!
For issues not sleeping he recommended melatonin and Benadryl ? I let him know I've got a history of insomnia he said to a
straightforward and direct...listened to all concerns...gave great advice.
Doctor and nurse was great. Front desk was a little understaffed.
I was pleased from start to finish.
Prior to visiting the office for my annual Physical, I explained that I would be taking my lunch hour from work for my appointment. The staff worked with my schedule to come up with the best time for me to come in and be seen by Dr. Syed right away. Upon signing in, I was immediately seen, and out within 40 minutes! The process was painless and convenient. Dr. Syed was very attentive and answered all of my questions. I felt right at ease from the moment I walked in the door. I highly recommend Dr. Syed.
He made me feel very comfortable right away. He's easy to talk to and he's a very good listener. He explained the treatment for my ailments and gave me options on which medications were available and let me choose what I felt would work for me. I was able to easily schedule a follow up appointment to discuss my lab work within a reasonable time frame. All of the office staff were great and they spoke very highly of him. Quite a compliment!!
He was very polite and listened to my concerns. I thought he did a great job in helping me abd did a thorough examination.
Dr. Syed listened and thoroughly explained everything. I never got the impression that he was rushed, and I felt thoroughly included in the decisions about my medical care.
Dr. Irfan's office Staff were present and welcoming. Dr. Syed was prompt and listened. However, Dr. Syed repeatedly downplayed the symptoms I described as mere common conditions. As a patient who has received little to no consecutive over the course of my life, one should no be dismissive when being told what that person has been facing. Dr. Syed seemed assured of his ability to find hard answers from proper testing. I respected his straightforwardness, yet Dr. Syed loses the confidence of his potential patients by disregarding and downplaying his patients aliments, and discrediting holistic and chiropractic doctors. Dr. Syed seems very capable of treating his patients, I just will not be one of them.
Dr. Syed was very professional, polite and listened to my concerns. He is an excellent Doctor. The front office staff were very friendly and polite as well.
Dr. Syed was excellent. I could ask for a better outcome. Office staff was great everything was nice a clean. Dr. Syed will be my primary doctors from now on.
Dr. Syed is gentle, thorough, professional and seems to empathize with patients. His front office staff are very friendly and helpful. I plan to continue using Dr. Syed as my primary care physician. The one minor item that I hope improves is Dr. Syed's interest in secondary symptoms and issues. He seemed slightly unconcerned about those in past visits, with a "wait and watch it" approach, perhaps because he was more focused on primary issues. However, at least one of these secondaries was a notable dermatological issue which I've subsequently treated.
Office staff as well as Dr. Syed were extremely efficient and nice. Even though it was a very busy day (new year's eve) with many patients in the office, the time he spent with me was not rushed.
Great! quick,and efficient .The Doctor is professional and the ladies are awesome .
Everything was awesome. I highly recommand it to other people...
Listened Well And Takes Time With My Appt.
It was a great visit and the office ladies where awesome as well. .
He seemed to carefully listen to me, asked followup questions, and I feel he properly diagnosed and treated me. I made the appointment for several reasons, one of which turned out to be strep throat. I believe he was genuinely concerned with my health and treatment. I will use Dr. Syed as my primary care physician from now on.
The staff is courteous, Monica is a dream! Just watch out for the bombshell nurse they have. She'll win your heart too. They were all super friendly. Dr. Syed took his time, didn't rush, listened to my concerns, always smiling and upbeat and stayin positive. THIS has become my primary physician. Godd work Zoc Doc!
This guy is awesome really listens and wants to help. This is how your doctor should be. Plus the girls up front are really nice.
I was so pleased by the front desk/ secretary and as well as the doctor that I am willing to travel 35 plus minutes away from Kennesaw to Alpharetta. I would travel 2 hours to his office if I had too. Best PCP I have had in a decade.
Staff and doctor were very friendly and professional.
It was great
Super nice and intelligent doctor! Nurses are very helpful and knowledgeable explaining everything from health to insurance.
I hardly write a review for anyone or anything but i do want to write about Dr. Irfan. He was very pleasant and courteous and gave me the best suggestions for improving our daily habits for any existing conditions. Highly Recommended.
I think Dr. Syed is a wonderful doctor, and very knowledgeable. I turned to an internist because I suffer from chronic or daily pain which has been often just treated with meds, and sent on my way. I suffer from chronic migraines due to a neurological condition and shooting or sharp pains down my legs daily. I've met a lot of unfriendly doctors but Dr. Syed was very friendly. I came to him for him to help me wean off of a particular medication (Ultram) because its stop working. He mentioned addiction several times as if he was scoping me out to see if I had those problems. I do not. In fact, I'd prefer not to take Rx meds, but after mentioning addiction to Rx meds and then telling me people use Fibromyalgia as a coverup to get medications it made me somewhat uncomfortable, as if he thought that I only came to him to get more drugs. There are a lot of people with drug issues, but not every one seeking relief from pain are addicts. We only know what are drs tell us, and if for a year my doctors have recommended a specific medication or others meds, I only have that to go on. I will continue to see Dr. Syed because I trust that he is not just looking to medicate me and shut me up and send me on my way. He really seemed to have a desire to get to the bottom of the source of my chronic ailments, but I have to be honest for a moment he did seem kind of accusatory in a round about way. The women at the front desk were friendly, fast, and they had chocolate. They deserve a raise!
He was super helpful! Thanks Doc!
It was outstanding!!
Very professional ,good DR
With an option to fill out paperwork online ahead of time, and a friendly, fast check-in process (led by Monica), I had a wait time of about 0 minutes to begin my physical exam. Dr Syed gave me opportunities to ask questions/express any health concerns before, during, and after the examination - a rarity! He acutally waited while I asked my questions, didn't rush me, answered them fully, and then would open it back up for questions after the next section of the visit. He's kind, professional, and has a great Assistant (Monica) who is knowledgeable, fast, and explains the assessments she's running as she's running them. Great experience!
Dr Syed has a very warm demeanor. Takes a lot of time listening. He is comfortable discussing complex issues.
Really good and knowledgeable doctor. He actually educated me on my problem and he will be my permanent doctor.
Very nice physician

Excellent Doctor. Gave me a patient hearing and made all the correct referrals.
Dr. Irfan Syed always gives the right recommendations and he is always pleasant. He has a big bundle of patience when listening to his patients. Overall, he is awesome !
I didn't feel rushed. I felt that Dr. Syed listened and took time to explain things. I felt he understood an old person like me and was very aware of the changes that come with aging. He was careful and professional. I felt confident in him. He had a pleasant sense of humor. He's my doctor.
