I have taken my mother to Dr Islam twice now and he is terrific. He's compassionate, understanding and is extremely thorough in his examinations. He answers all questions, is a believer in diet as a means of improving and maintaining health, doesn't immediately suggest surgery, and is just a really great doctor. It's difficult to please my 90 y.o. mother, but she couldn't be more pleased with him.

I had a procedure by Dr Islam that entailed having 3 stents inserted. I needed immediate surgery and Dr islam was very precise and available to make certain all went well. His professionalism toward my family was outstanding and I will never forget how he made me whole again. Along with Dr Islam, Baystate medical's team made my follw-up care an excellent experience. Thank you Dr Islam and staff.

Worst doctor ever. I visited this doctor for chest pain. He was rude and negelectful to me. He was talking to me as if I am a child. He said my symptoms are fake and this is all in my head. He was disrespectful and mean towards me. I started crying and he just walked out on me saying that he needs to see other patients with real problems.

Doc Islam, had me waiting over an 1 hour to see me and the was very ubrup and pretty rude, no bed side manners and seem like he could careless, was suppose to get back to me with a leg vascular doctor, and never contained my primary care on what action he was going to take. It's been over two weeks! If you don't like your job find a new job!
