Dr. Mahpara S Syed has the following 2 specialties
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

I was overwhelmed by how nice Dr. Sayed and her staff were. I was so anxious about my husbands positive lab work. Not only was she knowledgeable and thorough, she called me back (HERSELF) as soon as she had all the test results she ordered. She didn't keep me worring through the weekend. I will gladly recommend her to everyone I know. Beaumont should be grateful to have such a wonderful doctor on staff!
Explained the procedures to diagnose my problems. Tests ordered quickly and a treatment plan was began at my 2nd meeting. The doctor was very thorough is explaining my problems and options. I have experienced some relief and am going to follow up with Dr. Syed to continue her treatment plan and keep moving to a less painful existence. Just a side note, I had seen a rheumatologist 10 years who was a bit arrogant and did not help my condition. I am very happy with Dr. Syed's professionalism, knowledge and manner of giving me a treatment plan, taking the time to answer my questions and share her knowledge, even if I ask the same questions a number of times.
I have been working with Dr. Syed for 2 years and I have found her care to be exceptional! She gives me the time I need to discuss any concerns that I have, and really listens when I am talking with her. She goes over the lab results at each visit, and makes certain that I understand the treatment plan. I think she is fantastic, and I have referred several friends to her practice. Her office staff is always helpful. I cannot imagine working with another rheumatologist.
I have seen no less than 10 medical professionals in the past 3 months, attempting to diagnose my complicated medical situation. My health issues recently became acute after an 11 year progression. Dr. Syed was the first to thoroughly evaluate ALL of my symptoms. She explained that in a complicated situation like mine, we'd have to work together to determine my diagnosis. "You know your body, and I know rheumatoid diseases. Let's solve this puzzle together." With that, she took over to her computer, turned it toward me and we worked through each potential disease, comparing symptoms and lab results to determine my diagnostic and treatment strategy. I've never had a doctor include me in the diagnostic plan before. We need more doctors like Dr. Syed!
