About Dr. Kayed

Philosophy of care

My philosophy is that the patient’s interests come first. I treat all patients the same regardless of anything. I grew up in Syria, where the care was good but could be a little neglected. I feel patients always need better care and you can always find something to improve. That really drives me in my practice of medicine. It’s very rewarding to see patients respond and know that they really feel better – to see smiles on their faces. That’s a goal in this field.

Why I entered medicine

A neighbor who was a doctor guided me when I was young, and I always felt he liked what he did. He talked to me about it and told me it was a really good job – because it wasn’t just a job. Medicine isn’t an occupation where you just go back to work every day, but something you have passion for that makes you feel good about yourself at the end of the day. That made me feel this is something I wanted to go for, and everything he said has turned out to be true.

Community involvement

I live in this community and have kids here, so I’m involved with a lot of things like being members of a church and Scouts. What I like about Scouting is that it’s good for both kids and the community. It helps make kids more mature, guides them, encourages them to make good decisions, makes them feel independent, teaches skills, and fosters respect for nature and people. It helps make them good, productive members of their community.

Personal interests

I enjoy sports, travel and music. I play a stringed instrument called the oud, which is similar to a guitar but wider in the back. I learned it as a child and brought the instrument with me when I came here from Syria. I mostly play for myself but sometimes play for people from our culture who know about it.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
