He was attentive and listened to me when I told him about what was going on and prescibed me what I needed to feel better.

I can not praise Dr. Farooqui enough. It upsets me to see such ignorance among people she has treated. She cared for my father. Not only was she thorough, detailed and meticulous in his care but she also spent time with me and my family each visit. Her staff all respect her because she treats them with the same level of care and respect that she gives her patients and their families. I am so grateful to have found her and recommend her care to all my friends and family. God bless her.

Let me start by saying I am a medical professional. My mother and other family members were under her treatment for inpatient geri psych. Dr. Farooqui is brilliant. Her educational background and extensive experience is reflected directly in her exceptional patient care. She is one of a kind. My mother was in her 90's and has since passed away but if I had to bring her back for geri psych care I would only bring her back to Dr. Farooqui. She is not just a great doctor but a genuine person.

Refused to call me back. I left several messages for her with staff and I never once received a call back. She was my father's psych doc at the geri psychiatric unit at Heywood. She once told my father to "not tell her anything she doesn't already know." She is not only unprofessional, but outright rude. She spent the minimum amount of time required with my father and other patients. Three minutes or five at best. She touches base with patients in front of other patients. Atrocious.

Nearly six years ago my mother was a patient of hers on the geri-psych unit. My mother was transported there on the wishes of my sister who was the guardian. Still, I was the health agent, and by state law, at the time, my authority superseded that of the guardian. Still, Dr. Farooqui refused to talk to me, saying, "I only talk to one person." She then prescribed a dose of the anti-psychotic drug Zyprexa strong enough to stone a horse. Mom was chemically restrained for five years.

Dr Ngomba took wonderful care of my father while he was in the hospital. He also made sure that we as family knew our options, what the next steps were and that we understood what was happening. He never made us feel rushed.

Waited 9 months for an appointment. Arrived 30 mins early. 30 mins later asked how much longer the wait would be and was told another 40 MINS! That's an hour and 10 mins PAST the appointment time. UNACCEPTABLE!

Dr Haas has really helped me with my insulin sugar control for my type 2 diabetes. He is a very caring and thorough specialist, and he will call you back! He is well worth the long waiting times for an appointment at either Umass or Heywood Hospital.

in washington,dc | 04/01/2016
Dr. Farooqui cared for my mother when she had Alzheimer's disease. I must say we went in with great hope that we could get some help for my mom and took my mother out of there no longer able to walk, sick with C-dif and more confused than ever. I am sorry but I would never recommend Dr. Farooqui or any of her colleagues at Heywood Hospital. Painful to even think I left my mother under her care. Please go elsewhere. She is not kind, does not listen and quick frankly does not care.
