Dr. Syed is fine, but IMO his nursing staff is horrible.

Following bypass surgery, my treatment is cardiac meds, exercise and annual checkups. In 2011-12 it took several checkups to adjust my meds for ideal lab test results. By then I had moved several hours away. Because of this, Dr. Syed's nurse insisted that I immediately transfer to a new cardiologist and start over. Incredibly, she refused to order my prescribed medications! She did not care that Dr Syed approved my treatment for a year, or that it took 3+ months to get an appointment at a new cardiologist. His staff also refused (in writing) to approve my enrollment in a certified Cardiopulmonary Rehab exercise program. What?!! He always pleads with me to exercise.

I am unable to get past his gatekeeper staff to appeal directly to Dr. Syed. So I am screwed and outraged that cardiology professionals would be rigid and uncooperative to the point of endangering my health. Bottom line: If you want to be callously abandoned in the middle of treatment, choose Dr. Syed.
