Thankful for ZocDocs and the ratings others put, that's what led me into Dr. Syed's office. Everything that was written prior to me is true, he's a great doctor; very educated and thorough but still down to earth and helpful. Theperfect combination for a doctor. Front desk and nurse staff were very kind and friendly too. They did say the wait time today was longer than normal, but like I say in several reviews...I don't mind waiting if I don't feel rushed with the doctor and I never did (even though I think he was missing his lunch break because of spending time with me). Thankful to be a patient of his!

Dr.Syed was very professional, he took the time to explain and explore every option he could for me. Due to the nature of the type of medication I require it can be difficult to find a doctor who is understanding ofthe difficulties it takes to get it, but Dr.Syed was very helpful.

I am not the "doctor going type" mainly because I never feel im listened to or often times feel I leave dissatisfied due to lack of understanding. For the first time in my adulthood I felt good about my visit atthe doctor. DR. Syed went slow, made sure he listened to my concerns and then addressed each one individually. He will now be not only my primary care doctor but one whom I will trust as my family doctor for my 4 boys and husband. VERY satisfied and will absolutely recommend him.

Very VERY nice Dr. Have had a hard time finding a Dr in the area where I live, because I needed a new Family Phy. and all the Dr in Kennastone were not excepting new patients... At least a year wait..Get real!! All were recommended by my health care provider and still no one would see me. Medicare you know. One receptionist told me about zocdoc and it is great. Will share with my neighborhood FB page. Thanks You will love Dr. Syed.

Dr. Syed was very nice and professional. The wait time was a bit longer than I would've liked, but some of that is to be expected as a new patient (filling out forms and submitting insurance info). Overall, I would recommendhim and plan to continue to see him in the future.
