Dr Syed spent time getting to know me, talking out my history and concerns and helped me feel confident in our course of action. It’s been difficult to find a doctor I like and trust but I finally have.

What I love about this place—superficial & trivial as it may sound to most: A. That there was no long wait for me [even though the waiting room was peaceful with no annoying television set playing something stupid...as most waiting roomsdo]. B. There's only one phone number, so you won't get confused with how to get a hold of them. Likewise, far as far as I know, there's one parent company at most, so it's really simple & direct to fax, get referrals, etc. [My previous doctor's office company was so confusing, and I never knew whom to call if I had an issue...and I think they preferred it that way.] C. The staff is really friendly and "chill." D. Dr. Syed is both extremely learned and caring — but more so than that, she's an outstanding listener & even a bit of a mentor. Having a conversation is quite natural and smooth. She's the type of doctor you just want to be friends with. __ At most, I think the parking was a little confusing, but I think that if you just call the office in advance & ask them where the best spot to leave your car is, they'd definitely advise you on that. [It was my first time, so I was a tad perplexed.] I really enjoyed my stay there! It was simple & quick—and led me to want to make this my new primary care physician!

They tried injecting me with an expired (Feb 2017) B12 (CYANOCOBALAMIN) - 1000mcg shot on June 2, 2017. She kind of makes sure that you keep going to her, so that she can charge your insurance. The very fact she hadexpired medications in her dirty fridge and her staff trying to inject me, makes me question her integrity. Bed side manners are zero (negative). She tried intimidating me when I said, I would post a review. She returned me my money for the shots that she had charged me. STAY AWAY.

Very caring doctor. Will always recommend taking blood and urine samples to be on the safe side of things. Quick diagnosis with explanation and will make judgements on whether her expertise is sufficient or if a referral is necessary. Is adoctor I feel very comfortable with as my primary care physician.

People in the front were ok. A smile wouldn't hurt, maybe a "how was your day?". But one assistant was very friendly and made be feel comfortable. I think Dr. Syed is very knowledgeable but did not get to address my main issue as they ran out of test kits.

Dr. Syed was warm and very personable when I met with her. I felt she was thorough with her checkup and genuinely concerned about my health issue. The negatives of my visit were that I waited over half an hour beforeshe saw me and that the nurse/admin staff were not attentive (i.e. did not direct me where to go, what to do for the tests they were performing) and seemed annoyed that I was there.

Dr. Syed was extremely approachable and immediately made me feel comfortable. She addresses any concerns I had and answered all my questions. I had to wait more than a half hour after my scheduled appointment but once they called me intothe doctor's office it did not take long until she came in to see me. The doctor's office was very cold so it was a bit uncomfortable but other than that I felt very well taken care of! I look forward to future visits with Dr.Syed.

She has excellent interpersonal skills. Explains situations in easy to understand terms, and seems caring. I would give her 5 stars across the board, but I felt like she downplayed a medical concern so she wouldn't have to treat it herself.
