If you are searching for a great doctor... please book with Dr. Syed! He exceeded my expectations. One of the more thorough doctors I have visited. I didn't feel rushed at all, and I can tell this doctor really cares about his patients' well beings. It's difficult to find a good doctor- thank you Dr. Syed!
Knowledgeable, he listens and everyone was nice , the office was clean no gutter and I was comfortable.
Considering all the options, I'm glad I happened to decide on Dr. Syed. Just recently moved to the area and found my new primary care doctor on the first try! Highly recommend him and the building is very neat.
Dr. Syed is a good doctor, he listens to me and doesn't treat me, like I have no idea what I am talking about. He addresses all my needs and concerns!
Very personable. Listened and I left with a plan. I highly recommend Dr. Syed!
Staff is friendly, & very prepared.
Great visit as usual!!!
I have never been so comfortable in my life. I have anxiety in new places to the point of panic attacks. Dr Syed and his staff went above and beyond to care for my needs and make me feel comfortable. I will never see another doctor again.
Good Doc and Staff Need improvements in following up with pts in labs and results but overall good care
Dr Syed took a lot of time out with me. He was very detailed and asked a lot of questions. I am very impressed with him and his staff.
He was a great doctor and gave me great advice.
My husband and I were very impressed with Dr. Syed's care. He was very personable, and offered actual help and advice. I think we have finally found a primary care doctor we can trust.
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. The perfect 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 of the difficulties it takes to get it, but Dr.Syed was very helpful.
Very friendly and easy to talk to! Dr. Syed genuinely cared about you and what you're going through and definitely knows what he's doing.
I love this Doctor he is new to the office I changed my pcp because he makes me feel so comfortable. He's trustworthy
Is great very profesionally
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 at the 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.
He made me very uncomfortable
Dr. Syed was amazing!! He was very compassionate and professional
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 recommend him and plan to continue to see him in the future.
Dr.irshad Syed was very professional and my needs were met in the office that day. I would recommend him as a family practice ?????
Doctor was very attentive. Seemed to care for what I was saying.
Dr. Syed was hands down the best doctor I have ever had. He was very understanding and patient with all the things I had questions about and was also incredibly kind. 10/10 would recommend seeing him.
Very friendly and personable. He made sure all my questions and concerns were answered!
Very helpful and comforting. Definitely will be my new regular physician.
