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 andsuggested the remedy. No push for other unnecessary sale pitch about some procedures or any other selling now a days going on.

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 washalf 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.

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 aplan of action. I didn't have to throw myself against the door to get Dr. S to pay attention/care. Five stars!

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 OBGYNmessed up with me. He helped me find a specialist and got me an appointment with him immediately.

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 aboutmaking 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.
