Recent reviews
I’ve been seeing Dr. Rasheed for approximately one year. I had a 2pm appointment which according to the posted office hours,was the first appointment of the day. When I arrived at the office 10-15 minutes prior to my appointment, a patient was already there. I signed in and payed my copay upon arrival and waited 40+ minutes as the woman before me and another woman who arrived 15 minutes after me got called into the doctor’s office. Upon complaining that I was skipped over I’m told, sorry, it’s not MY POLICY! The staff (in Wayne) is quite frankly unprofessional. On one occasion I observed the receptionist complain to every patient that walked in about how she got burned from indoor tanning and then speak candidly with another patient about almost loosing her meds that she accidentally left in the bathroom! How about some class and cohesion with staff & physician? I’m definitely looking for a new physician who doesn’t run an average of 30-40 minutes behind,.

He is a very nice guy who has his patients best interests in mind! He is one of the few whowon't overprescribe medications that don't help and even when you tell the Dr. it's not working, they say give it a couple of more weeks that's all. Dr. Rasheed is not like that, if a medication is not working he works his hardest to find the right medication/combination of medications for you. He has saved my life, I used to not be able to leave the house due to my anxiety and he has found the right meds to help me lead a normal life...well slightly normal hahaha.

Dr. Rasheed definitely seems to take your words into account and truly believes in finding a personalized solution for you. He is a great and genuinely caring doctor in that regard. He’s not too personable, however I’ve yet to find apsychiatrist that is. I will be going back and would recommend him to others.

Charges the doctor office visit fee although you have insurance, states that this is done in case the insurance company does not pay but even after insurance company pays good luck with getting your money back and reaching the office. Officenumber is his cellphone number which he barely picks up. Still trying to get my money back after a visit done a little over a year now. Will not recommend.

Although I’m to busy to even write reviews. I have to leave my thoughts regarding my visit with Dr. Syed. Dr. Syed was a consummate professional. Before seeing him I read A review that he is very educated as far asmedication is concerned. I cannot stress this lightly that he knows what he’s talking about. I’ve explain side effects for years regarding my medication and no one knew what I was talking about. He was absolutely spot on. I would Highly recommend him And I will absolutely look no further.

Truly a caring doctor and expert in his field who listens and assesses your conditions extensively. Experienced and thoroughly, he then proposed what’s most appropriate and effective course of treatment for you. With Dr. Rasheed being mydoctor now, I feel positive and confident that I will be getting the help I need.

While the doctor's seem to be great at this facility, the waiting time is unacceptable. The receptionist is the most clueless individual I have ever met. She looks like she is permanently spaced out all the time. She did not informus of anything we had to fill out or complete until I inquired at the front desk. I had an appointment at 11:45 and did not get in to see a doctor until almost 1pm. I informed the receptionist that both my husband and I were there for appointments and even after one of the doctors asked her to enter his information in the system she failed to do so. It took the Doctor three times to ask her. Additionally, my husband was scheduled to come in for a subsequent appointment on Monday. The appointment was for 7:15 and he waited for over an hour to be called (same clueless receptionist) only to be told that the receptionist never booked his appointment even after she told us she did that Saturday. This is a complete waste of time and the consideration for patient's time is horrific! No wonder they immediately recommend medicating you as soon as you go in for your assessment with the doctor. You need to be medicated to deal with this circus of an office!

Dr. Rasheed has been seeing me for about 2 years now. I will admit sometimes he is quick with his appointments especially if they are backed up. But if you bring up an issue you are having he will work withyou. We were going to add on another medication and I expressed my concerns about a side effect, at first he said try and see, it doesn't always happen and I told him I really didn't want to risk it. So we tried something else. If you see him on his phone MOST times it is because his electronic prescription system sends him a text with a code before he can send it to the pharmacy as a double security system. He has a nurse practitioner who is also pretty good most times, I still prefer him. When you're making an appt on zocdoc if you have a preference to see Dr. Rasheed you should call to confirm it is with him or the NP if you care.

I’m very disappointed with my last visit. I have been a patient of Dr. Rasheed for over two years now and this visit I was seen by a different Dr. Switching a patients psychiatrist without the patients knowledge or consent isnot a great way to retain clients. I was informed that I had to now, as per New Jersey’s new law that just went into effect, I can no longer continue to be prescribed the medication I’ve been successful for over 6 months on because one is for anxiety and one is for A.D.D. After I explained very clearly that I’ve used clonopin before and it was awful for me, so I needed the Xanax, as that has been the only drug successful in relieving my anxiety and didn’t make me a zombie- the clonopin was prescribed regardless. My adderall IR was switched to XR and now I have two new prescriptions at once which isn’t a fun game to play, I’m sure anyone who is looking for or currently sees a psychiatrist would agree. I called the office to ask what the law was called when I got home so I could look at it myself. I was informed it was “under 2019 drug test law - controlled substances” There was no such law that google could find. I’m not sure what exactly is going on at that practice but it seems a bit odd.

I trust this doctor and have done so for 8 years! He is an expert in psychiatric medications, he knows every medication in his head. He has denied me medications in the past so the stories about him pushing drugs aretotally false. He has so many patients I never see the same two in a month in eight years. I think the bad feedback is about ppl who do not know the difference between psychology and psychiatry. He offers different psychologist if you want a 60 min talk session but has never rushed or disappointed or rushed me. A+ 100 stars! HIGHLY REC’D

I really like this doctor! I am a long time patient, have been coming for years! Zocdoc makes appointments a breeze! He is a expert PSYCHIATRIST but for ppl who need a 60 minute PSYCHOLOGY appointment they are available in theoffices as well. I like them too. Dr. Rasheed is a brilliant diagnostic doctor, and excellent and patient treatment specialist. In my humble opinion ( I have borderline personality disorder ) and have been looking for a good match for years. He’s been my doctor 10+ years! Thanks

Very organized and efficient in regards to setting up the appointment with ZocDoc. The front desk had all of my forms ready when I got there and the waiting room was empty. I probably had to wait a bit longer sincethis was my first appointment, but others who came in seemed to not wait terribly long. I think some may see his demeanor as distant, but he knows what he’s talking about and I personally will seek out a talk therapist in conjunction with this doctor and hope for the best. He made the transition smooth from my other doctor and my prescriptions were sent and ready in about an hour. I’d recommend this psychiatrist for your medication needs!

Highly recommended. Both offices are very clean and the staff and doctor are very kind. I’ve been coming to Dr. Rasheed for 2 years now and on my first visit I was a mess he helped me get back to mynormal self. I first thought I had anxiety but the doctor explained to me very clearly that I actually have ADHD and my anxiety comes from my ADHD. Lastly, the office is always is able to schedule you with an appointment on your time and the best part is the office is open until 8 pm in the Wayne location 3 days a week as well as Saturdays.

Deferred my review until my 2nd follow up visit. After viewing Dr. Rasheed's remarks about the visit on the online portal, I am thoroughly reassured that the curt and slightly cold demeanor was nothing more than a reflection of his commitmentto gathering a thorough and logical overview of my personal history and situation. He is very well educated about the most current guidelines and take the patient's thoughts and experiences in strong consideration when constructing the patient's course of treatment. Sends prescriptions electronically and his office automates much of the normal finances and paperworks. Office is fully integrated with Zocdoc and reliably schedules patients to balance the wait time and time seen.
