Mar 21, 2019
no complaints
Mar 13, 2019
Originally called in October 2018 to make an appt with Dr. Qayyum for an initial new Medicare patient meeting, was told the earliest possible date was March 2019, so I took it. Had to use CVS Minute Clinic and urgent care prior to that. Long wait.
Mar 13, 2019
Front desk check-in was having computer problems. Also, I had checked in already online as requested - seems like the humans at front desk and the electronic phone/email system are not in sync.

Feb 27, 2019
good experience
Feb 27, 2019
this was my first time meeting Dr Qayyum and I couldn't have been more satisfied. The Framingham office is a bit of a drive for me and I did wait about an hour total in the office, however I'm so pleased with my experience. she was so tentative to me, did not rush me out of the room regardless of how far behind she was in her schedule. I'm very pleased to have chosen her as my new primary care doctor. She is great!
Feb 22, 2019
every time i have an appt its always an hour plus wait before i get called in. not acceptable
Feb 22, 2019
total wait before actually seein doctor was an hour and a half
Feb 22, 2019
Paige is very good. she listens and helps. always answers messages quickly through portal.
Feb 22, 2019
the wait time is ridiculous. the dr is not that great.
Feb 20, 2019
Everyone besides the doctor.
Feb 18, 2019
Overall my experience was good. The dr. spent a lot of time with me & was very thorough.
Feb 18, 2019
The dr. listened to my concerns and prescribed the appropriate tests & treatments for me. I was very satisfied with her. She was excellent!
Feb 18, 2019
It seemed like a long wait to see the doctor.
Feb 18, 2019
She was very courteous to me and performed the appropriate tests on me very well. I liked her very much!
Feb 18, 2019
Everyone worked well together from check in to seeing dr. to the lab & check out.
Feb 18, 2019
All very good.
Feb 12, 2019
Paige is excellent
Feb 9, 2019
All excellent!
Feb 4, 2019
Everyone was pleasant and helped me clear things with my insurance to get my appointment set up.
Feb 3, 2019
My only suggestion would be to make it clearer whether a patient needs to stay in the room (for a shot, equipment etc) or go to the checkout desk. I especially get confused when I have to have blood drawn.
Feb 3, 2019
I had updated my information using the email I was sent, so I was confused why I had to review the same information when I arrived. I told the person at the desk that I'd done it on the computer and she acknowledged she could see that I had, but continued asking me about the same information I'd already verified.
Feb 3, 2019
She was efficient and pleasant
Feb 1, 2019
great
Feb 1, 2019
have already recommend her twice

once again, an excellent experience with everyone encountered.

Jan 4, 2019
Dr. Qayyum is usually 30-45 minutes behind on weekday afternoons when I come in for physicals, but I was delighted to come in at the same time and day where I would normally be present for one to an empty waiting room and an immediate appointment.
Jan 4, 2019
Thank you for providing excellent care!

I have had consistently good experiences in this office.
Nov 15, 2018
I have recommended Dr Qayyum to friends and family although I don't think she is taking new patients at this time. I just started seeing her last year and have had only positive experiences in her expertise, care and thoughtfulness.
Nov 15, 2018
there weren't any delays
Nov 14, 2018
very good experience
Nov 14, 2018

Oct 27, 2018
Dr. Qayyum is one of the best doctors I've had. She listens she tells me as it is and doesn't sugarcoat things
Oct 27, 2018
I absolutely love all of the nurses there they are all caring and respectful and they listen
Oct 24, 2018
From the first call I made in March 2017 through my most recent visit in October 2018, the clinic staff has been friendly, professional and efficient. Every interaction is pleasant.
Oct 24, 2018
I am impressed with Dr. Qayyam. She was efficient, but never rushed. She was patient with my questions, answered clearly and precisely, but in a way that was easy to understand. She explained the why and how of my condition, and the tests she ordered.Her manner underscored the idea that my improved and good health is the result of a partnership - the physician providing skill, expertise and encouragement, the patient providing willingness to learn and follow through. All in all, Dr. Qayyum's presentation and interaction me prompted trust in her skill and ability.
Oct 24, 2018
I am very happy with and glad that I selected this office last year when looking for a new doctor.I am impressed by clinic staff and Dr. Qayyum.
Oct 17, 2018
Dr. Q is great at making sure she understands what is going on. She is extremely knowledgeable. Her explanations are great, better than most doctors. I am very happy with her care.
Oct 6, 2018
Tryinh to schedule an appointment over the phone was difficult so I tried doing it through the patient portal. I was then told to use ZocDoc to schedule an appointment. When using ZocDoc, it only let me schedule the appointment as a new patient. I tried to let the office know that I had seen Dr. Qayyum before arriving, but the office hadn't seen the comment/message so it took a couple minutes to straighten that out.
Oct 6, 2018
I appreciate how thorough and understanding Dr. Qayyum is. She was able to keep the appointment, including blood work, into the hour that I had free.
Oct 6, 2018
Because I'm on the patient portal and used ZocDoc, I was given way too many reminders for the appointment and asked to check in prior to arrival in more than one place. i would prefer just one system with only one set of reminders.
Oct 5, 2018
Dr. Asylum is very good knowledgeable, caring and thorough.
Oct 5, 2018
Nurse/assistant is very professional and courtious.
Oct 4, 2018
Regarding wait times, I always arrive early, and expect a 30 minute delay after scheduled time, as seems to be a common practice. I don't mind waiting, IF I get as much time as needed.
Sep 28, 2018
the nurse was very nice
Sep 28, 2018
I was a walk in not a scheduled appointment. I am very please that I was accommodated and have no complaints.
Sep 28, 2018
Everything went great considering I walked in and they took me
Sep 26, 2018
Prior to the appt, I found the person on the phone to be unfriendly and more interested in pushing online scheduling, vs talking to me after waiting on hold for 7-8 minutes. The person who checked me in (who may have been the same person), also didn't want to check me in, and asked me to take out my phone and check in that way, which I found weird as I was standing right in front of her. I then asked if there was a wifi password so I could access data, and she said no. She reluctantly then checked me in. Just not the normal - 'how can I help you?' type that I would have expected.
Sep 26, 2018
I really find the dr. to be top notch in truly listening and talking about options for treatment to my problems. I have recommended her to others.
Sep 26, 2018
I would recommend the Doctor, but not the practice.
Sep 26, 2018
The practice could use a spruce up. Looks tired, which is why I rated the cleanliness as lower.
Sep 21, 2018
Dr. Qayyum is the best
Sep 20, 2018
Continue to be treated very professionally.
