Ratings for Dr. Faisal A. Sayeed
I told them every med I was on after urine test I was told that I had Lortab in my system I didn't know what that was and was refused pain medicine I went home Google what Lortab was and found out it was liking they refused me pain meds because they didn't check the records I have severe back problems and was left to suffer in pain find another doctor because after telling them twice what I was on no one informed the woman that did pain prescriptions
I made an appointment to see Dr Sayeed, when I arrived at the office I was told that he was out of town due to a family emergency. I saw Dr Robinson, most of the time he was talking to me while he was either reviewing my MRI or writing in my chart. (Hardly any eye contact) I scheduled another appointment to see Dr Sayeed and when I arrived at the office, forty five minute drive, I was told he was on vacation for a month and again saw Dr Robinson. I wanted to see Dr Sayeed because a relative spoke highly of him. The office tried to schedule me for injections at both office visits even after I explained to Dr Robinson that I have had reactions to injections and also to acupuncture. I will NOT go back to this practice!
Excellent physician , I used to have excruciating pain and was not able to walk 1 block , saw dr Sayeed , he evaulated me , ordered MRI , and ordered physical therapy , also did a series of steroid injection , which improved my pain levels to more than 50% , this way I could avoid going through surgery , which is always a 50:50 success . the staff are excellent and very friendly and helpfull
WARNING,don't go see this dr.! He treated me for lower back pain sad to say for3yrs.No MRI or x ray done.Just shots meds.and other proceders plus pain meds.None helped in 2013 went to a real dr.HE ordered a MRI that showed severe damage to my disc and vertebrae. Since I have gone through 2 surgery's and in the best shape in yrs.Ask your self how can a dr. give you shots when he has no xray or MRI to see what the problem is? In the 2.5yrs. I saw him total bill 85,915.00 which is sad my last major back surgery cost 30,000.00 give that some thought.GLad I woke up and saw a real dr.I was told that if I didn't come in my disc was ready to rupture this could of and my lower spine was very unstable.This is now corrected all the shots,pain pills were for nothing this could of ended with me not walking again.PLEASE before seeing him see other dr. request a MRI or xray before ANY treatment from him.I live in a drug neighborhood and 60% know of dr.Sayeed as the go to guy for drugs just endure the shots and you'll get your drugs.Also like to say just to see what would happen went and saw him explain my surgery which was fusion of L2 to L6 with a rod on each side of my spine,10 screws i inn all.My S1 joint has been inflame when I told him this he told me I needed a injection (surprised?) this without seeing my MRI or surgeon report.I have a apt. from my surgeon for the shot.So again unless you don't care,need drugs,and like pain RUN away from this dr.
Claimed I needed a procedure done in order to relieve headaches. He told me it was just a steroid injection into my neck to relieve the muscle inflammation and would not hurt and I would be asleep during the procedure. I was awake the entire time, screaming and crying hysterically for him to stop due to the extreme pain. Afterwards I was unable to move my head because my neck was so stiff and in so much pain. I could not even chew or swallow food because of the pain. He refused to prescribe any medications for the pain except for one he knew I could not take and told me if I wouldn't take it then he wouldn't help me.After visiting with a neurosurgeon, I found out Dr. Sayeed actually did injections in my spinal column. Dr. Sayeed never told me this, nor did any paper work state they were doing cervical epidural steroid injections. The neurosurgeon said it shouldn't have hurt me, but it did because he did them incorrectly and in the incorrect spot.I still suffer limited mobility and pain
