Very good provider.
Jul 24, 2019
Dr. Qayyum is a very good doctor and though I probably want to talk too much she is careful in her care and decision making. I will use her now forever but will not always agree to treatment she suggests but I try very hard to be a good patient for her. For what it is worth, patients need to feel the doctor has time for them to talk about their issues. Perhaps she is overbooked but I don't know. I do admire her very much.
Jul 24, 2019
no problem except long wait. may be overbooking. not sure though
Jul 24, 2019
Paige is a gem. She is thoughtful, kind and interested in who you are and what you are about and you problems. She really cares and should be considered as one of the best employees anyone could have.
Jul 24, 2019
A good experience overall. I appreciate everyone who works so hard there. Dr. Qayyum is excellent in diagnostics. Just needs to listen to her patients a bit more but probably does not have time. I am happy with her overall and love the staff and gave them direct compliments to Dr. Qayyum at my appointment.
Jul 22, 2019
I had a good experience. No complaints
Jul 18, 2019
excellent experience!!
Jul 17, 2019
had to wait 1 hour and 15minutes before seeing the soctor and then she tells me her nurses had to pull her out of exam... what is the point of scheduling appointments then?? I wasn't a walk in, I had a scheduled appointment time and they couldn't even honor that.
Jul 17, 2019
awful experience waiting, the whole thing took 5 hours, how do I make up that time for work? I dont have extra time in my day.
Jul 16, 2019
very polite and courteous staff
Jul 16, 2019
dr Qayyum is exceptional! she truly cares about her patients and follows up personally if she has concerns. she has called me to check on my health on more than one occasion which shows true compassion for her patients

Great service
Jun 19, 2019
In the 10 years that I have been seeing Dr. Qayyum, every staff person has been professional, helpful and friendly. I recommend that practice to someone whenever the topic comes up.
Jun 19, 2019
Dr, Qayyum has known me for almost 10 years. She remembers previous concerns and always asks and listen to any current issues. She always knows something about any concern that I voice, talks to me about it and then, if necessary, refers me to a specialist in her broad network. If she tells me not to worry about something, or to watch and wait, I trust her because of her knowledge and how well she has explained things to me. She clearly stays current in her field. I recommend her to people whenever the opportunity arises.
Jun 19, 2019
There have been a few times, when things are busy, that I have had to wait in the waiting room for up to 30 minutes. I don't mind because I understand that there may be some emergency and I appreciate the fact that Dr. Q and others always take extra time with me when I need it.
Jun 19, 2019
Staff are always friendly, patient and professional.
Jun 19, 2019
At each visit, every member of the team knows what they are doing and what I need as I move through my visit.
Jun 19, 2019
I've never had any concerns.
Jun 18, 2019
not at this appt but last time I went in waited 15 min and then I was told I could not be seen! this time I went in at 1010 for my 1015 appt I wasn't seen by the doctor until 1105!

Was asked to check in on line first, then had to check in again in person. Systems are not coordinated.
Jun 13, 2019
There is a difference between "diagnose" and "cure". Apparently I will need to just live with certain conditions instead of getting rid of them...
Jun 13, 2019
Waited for doctor to arrive for appt.
Jun 13, 2019
Paige is wonderful!
Jun 12, 2019
Dr. Asimah Qayyum and her staff are very thorough and I always feel like I am in good hands when I seek medical attention with her and her staff.

I would recommend my doctor, but based on the experience in reception, I would not recommend the practice.
Apr 2, 2019

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
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

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.

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
