Verified Patient Reviews
Overall the staff is pretty nice. The procedures could use some tightening up. I was given three quotes for how much my visit was going to be. There are specific tests that were supposed to be done at my last visit that didn't occur because the equipment wasn't functioning properly. There was never any attempt to have the test done once the equipment was repaired (if it was repaired). Yet I am paying FULL PRICE as though I'm getting a FULL SERVICE. I can't......
She was a great doctor full with happiness and enjoyment. She explained everything very thoroughly. I would highly recommend her she makes you feel very comfortable.
The visit was nice, the initial wait was much longer than I had anticipated. My treatment has just begun, so I will follow up with accuracy. So far the doctor and her staff's personality match mine. I like them.
The wait was terrible with only 2 people in front of me. Got there at noon left at 1:30. I don't recommend if you're in a hurry.
Very professional, and staff seemed very sincere about resolving personal medical issues. Very refreshing after talking with so many Dr's that will not listen and simply pacify patients with their incorrect preconceived diagnosis.
Definitely need new front desk staff. Very unprofessional.
It was an awful experience. Never never return to this office eve again. The receptionist was rude. I checked in at 1:30, no one would ask us to fill any forms until I asked 30 minutes later, her respond was yes I knew you were waiting, I just have a chance to work on you now without any apology. And I was here for physical without any food. Awful experience ever. The stuff was rude.
it was great
Extra nice staff. The wait was a pinch long. But how nice it was to have a female doctor for a change.
My visit was prompt
The doctors office is horrible.
She was very patient and courteous, seemed very well versed with women's health issues and was able to fill my prescriptions accurately through the pharmacy. The wait is a little long, but not longer than most other health facilities I've been to.
Office not clean, need updates. Office staff not very friendly, pamphlets needed restocking, entrance door in need of repair. Wait was way too long with many patients continuing to enter. In desperate need of customer service training - invest in it.
My experience has been great and very comfortable.
Doctor's speaks very fast and low. She was hard to understand. Never got followups in regards to my visit.
She was really nice.
My visit with the doctor was good. The employee at the front desk with purple scrubs on was very rude to me.
Waited for over an hour in the waiting room and another hour just to see the doctor. Tried to talk about the reason I was there and she didn't even speak to me about it. Very unprofessional and rude.
I truly thought that this visit would go well. However, I should have prepared myself when I arrived 20 - 30 mins before my scheduled time and it still took me over an hour just to be called back into a room. Though their were two receptionists at the front that were very sweet and polite. After finally getting placed in a room, I thought great now we are on our way. I was very wrong. The nurse came and asked questions and wrote down info. (I did fill out everything online, I thought that would make my visit smoother) The doctor herself came in and was so brief and rushed it was horrible. She wasn't interested in much of anything I had to say nor was she attentive to the situation. With all of that I just wanted to get my prescription and leave. I actually had to ask them if we were finished because no one ever came back in to say anything. I gave them the medicine I usually have that works for me and they sent it across town to a pharmacy, then to another, then back to the one across town. It was a truly horrible experience and I would and will not recommend her to anyone ever!
Pros: (1) Excellent that I could see Dr. on a Saturday!!! A real plus! (2) Girls in office were pleasant, as was the P.A. I saw. It was a comfortable appointment. (3) Office was clean. (4) Scheduling my appointment via website was wonderful! (5) P.A. was very thorough getting dates of all of my latest exams. She also explained the next two upcoming appointments and why they would be needed, to establish a baseline. (6) Location of office was marvelous!!! Right down the road from home! (7) I'm not a sexist, but it was nice having a female doctor for a change. Cons: (1) Really, really unnecessary to have to repeat filling out forms which I had already done at home the night before ("to make your appointment more efficient" . . . a joke!). Then nurse and P.A. also verbally repeated same questions. Four times same questions were asked! CRAZY! (2) I had read online how long the wait was for patients at that office. I was naïve and thought I wouldn't have a similar problem. WRONG! My appointment was scheduled for 9:30; I didn't walk out of office until 11:45, and the amount of time with P.A. was only about 20 minutes, at max. (3) Somehow, I just didn't feel as if I had connected with them as well as I had hoped. It was my first visit, so perhaps we will click as we become familiar with each other. Overall: Whether or not I would refer my family and friends to this practice is "so-so". Not as warm-&-fuzzy as I would have liked, but certainly worth giving them another chance. Besides, it was one of the few practices which took Medicare.
Very thorough. Very polite. They checked me very well and I can honestly say that I believe my health is gonna be way better going to them. And my appointments was made for my convience.
very good, bedside manner excellent, very professional
She very goods for me.
Overall very nice practice and healthcare professionals. This is my new general practitioner. I really like practice!!!
Love the doctor and the girls that work there just dont understand why it's always an ht wait in waiting room than another 30 minutes in the exam room of waiting. But wait is worth it i gues because love the care i get. I think maybe it's an overbooking issues.
The wait time was horrible, waited nearly 2 hours to be seen for less than 5 minutes. Doctor wasn't too bad, but I was expecting a little more of an exam being a new patient. ..
I don't think it is reasonable for a waiting time of one hour and 45 minutes before you can see the doctor.
I did not like the wait time, and I didn't like the fact that I had to fill out between 8-10 pages of information. Specially when I had prefilled my forms online. The whole point of checking in online is so you don't have to do it when you go into office.
Very compassionate, patient and professional physician.
More professionalism from the staffs
Can judge better after fu visit.Office did not know I had an appt.and wanted me to fill out papework I had already done on line.PA came in to see me until I requested MD.
Highly satisfied by Dr Saima Syed.
Walked away without learning anything. Completely impersonal. I was the only one in the office, but the doctor (an older lady) didn't seem to be bothered with me at all. WASTE OF MONEY!
the dr was sweet her nurses were nice and even laughed at my boyfriends jokes. i went in for a dislocated shoulder and she sent me straight to the emergency room where they fixed it right away i had been walking around for two weeks with the messed up shoulder and she did not ignore me when i made the complaint about it and she addressed the other twenty things on my list right away great dr great bedside manner and lots of great nurses
Waiting time was so horrible but the nurse asst staff was very awesome
Dr. Syed is very professional, courteous, and friendly. She also listened to my concerns and answered any questions that I had. This was my first visit to her office and I look forward to future visits with Dr. Syed as well as having her as my primary care physician.
I thought the office staff was very friendly, especially the nurse that took me back to the room. She even made sure that my wait was not too long. The doctor was very nice, and took time to answer all of my questions, which is always a plus.
She was great. She listened to what i said and answered my questions.
I was told when I left the office that my prescriptions would be sent electronically to Kroger pharmacy.....Kroger never received and checked with another Kroger to see if they went there. I had to call the office the next morning, and was placed on wait at least 5 minutes, then argued with about how my chart did not state they went electronically. I was then transferred to a voice mail. I was in pain with a sore throat and earache, called them back stating I just wanted my medications. I was then told they would request for them to be sent stat. Almost 24 hrs later, I finally had my prescriptions!
my visit felt as if they did not care about my health or well-being, only on what tests, procedures or future appointments they could schedule to maximize their earning potential. When checking my blood pressure, the wrong size cuff was used (smaller size will give higher reading) and not aligned correctly. when checking my lungs and heart, the stethoscope was not firmly placed against my chest or back. Knowledge of medicine was definitely lacking......
She was excellent and kind!
Overall she was great very nice very friendly, but she did not cover everything in was there for. Before I could say anything she was out the door writing a prescription. I did not even bother asking cause obviously she didn't care enough to stay and worry about me as a patient like all other doctors do and should.
Everyone in that office was great. Super nice people yet very professional. The PA and doctor were very thorough and explained everything. And the doctor showed genuine concern for my well being. Really a knowledgeable, caring doctor and staff. I would recommend doctor Syed to anyone that I care about.
Waited over an hour. Very personable but didn't sanitize hands upon entry & exit btwn patients. Thorough exam but didn't address concerns after inquiry. Search for PCP continues.
The staff were very friendly and Dr. Syed was very persosonable, knowledgeable and caring. I have a follow-up next and I'm actually looking forward to it.
The staff and Dr. Syed were wonderful! For a first visit, the paperwork being filled out online, and then the verification process was a breeze! Thank you for a wonderful first visit! I will be back with you!
Very professional and was in no hurry! I felt like I was the only person on the schedule. She took time to listen and then after asked if there was any other worries concerns etc. I highly recommend!
very professional, very personable, took the time to listen to my concerns and explained her answers.
She was very friendly and professional! Her staff was also very friendly. She listened to my problems and is helping me work toward finding exactly what is wrong. Very satisfied.
Cancelled my appointments 1 day prior for no reason
Great experience. Dr. Syed was pleasant, knowledgeable, and helpful. The staff was great as well.
The doctor went over my medical issues in an informative manner.
She was very friendly and helpful. Nice bedside manner.
Dr. Syed and all of her staff were exceptionally friendly and efficient. I came to her because it was impossible to get an appointment with my former doctor, and when they were able to see me, I'd spend no less than 2.5 hours at the office just waiting to be seen. Although Dr. Syed took the time to speak to me and discuss things with me, I was still in and out within an hour, and that included the time it took me to fill out the new patient paperwork. I'm very glad I found Dr. Syed!
She addresses every concern, love her.
She kept sending me charges for my visit months after I saw her and after I paid for them, I still continued to receive more.
I really liked my experience.....it was awesome the doctor and the staff........two thumbs up!!!!!!!!!!
Dr. Syed is wonderful and seems to genuinely care about your health. My only problem was with the scheduling side - I wasn't seen until about an hour after my scheduled time. Still, will definitely use again.
Dr. Syed was very nice, informative, and comfortable to be around. I had an annual physical with her . I would definitely recommend her.
Very pleasant and attentive doctor.Would highly recommend her to anyone!
Doctor Syed was very informative and portrayed excellent bedside manner. I was very pleased with my visit.
She was excellent and extremely thourough. She also made sure that future appointments were setup. I am definitely going to make her our primary care physician.
No complaints, full staff was professional and pleasant. Appropriate prescriptions and labs were ordered and I felt I was listened to when it came to my ailments.
Staff is friendly, I am usually seen in a timely manner, never waited more than half an hour. The doctor is friendly, ingormative, speaks in to me in a manner that I can understand what the problem is and explains all options to me. I really like Dr. Syed very much. Also, The waiting area is very comfortable. Easy to find location and plenty of parking.
Excellent visit, friendly and professional doctor and staff. Everything went well, and prescriptions were ordered promptly.
The office staff and doctor were caring and listened to my concerns and needs and took care to explain and help. Prescriptions were waiting at my pharmacy as promised.
She was an hr an 15mins late i was the only pt there.got thr at 12:45 she came in the room at 2:00. She seems to b a good dr. But needs to work on time management
Loved her and the entire staff, extremely caring and informative. Very happy with the overall experience, care, and attention.
Very disappointed. Waited too long, Dr was nice but rushed. I was advised a prescription was being called in to my pharmacy. Turned out to be a note to pick up an over the counter nasal spray of my choice. Why not tell me that while I'm in the office instead of wasting an hour of my time to pick up a "prescription"?
Good, she was sweet and intelligent.
It was good, no complaints. Everyone was very friendly.
Everyone was very nice looked forward to have Dr Syed as my Dr.
She is a good doctor.
Very professional demeanor and excellent bedside manner, fantastic with kids. I would highly recommend this office and staff they are the best.
Although my visit to this doctor went reasonably well, I will not recommend her as my prescription was never sent to the local CVS as requested. Now I'll have to endure an entire weekend without needed medication unless I create a bill at the hospital. In the meantime, I pray not serious happens to me as my condition relates to chest pains.
she is great
Phenomenal! So glad i found her! I've been in pursuit of a doctor for our family for some time now. i wasn't satisfied with some that i had encountered. I'm so happy with the staff and my new doctor!
Very professional and knowledgable.
It went quite well for the first visit. Time is the best factor from which to leave the most trusting feedback. All in office were nice and professional - with good personalities and the ability to laugh.
i loved her she took time listen and talked to me she is a very sweet ladie
I really liked this doctor but will not go back because her receptionist was extremely rude. She announced to the whole waiting area that my test results showed that I had some constipation problems. That was after she was refusing to let me know my results after I had paid for them. Nope, I can get rudeness for free, won't be going back.
as this was a first visit, this was a ge-to-know you meeting. She and her staff were very efficient and caring. She is getting my records from cross country and we will have another appointment when she has had time to go over all/
She was awesome! Very sweet and gentle. They worked me in although I didn't have an appointment. I will definitely recommend to friends.
Dr Syed is my primary care physician. She explains things in a way that I can understand. When she is examming me, I never get the feeling that she is rushed,always spends as much time as I need.
Very thorough and Professional Listens to all your concerns.
Great experience, as usual.
I am so glad I found this doctor! The staff was very friendly and comforting and the nurse was very thorough with me. Dr. Syed listened to every concern I had and addressed them with interest and understanding. I am thankful to ZocDoc for making it so easy to find such a GREAT doctor!
Very pleasant and informative
she set a late appointment bu then it seems like she was in a rush . I was nt even aware the visit was over .It lasted a little over 5 minutes and prescribed me anti depressants and never explained the drug at all.
Hard to tell with 15 minutes but so far so good.
This was my first visit and I the doctor and her staff very friendly and efficient.
SHE WAS VERY PROFESSIONAL AND COURTEOUS...
It was ok. It was my first visit.
I havent had a check-up in about 3 years and Dr. Syed and her staff were wonderful and attentive to my needs and concerns. I would definitely recommend this practice.
Very down to earth. Explained things in a way I could understand.
Very professional and efficient.
I really liked Doctor Syed. I will definitely recommend others to come see her.
Dr. Syed was very personable and really took the time to listen to me. I will definitely return to her office!
