I have had Dr. Islam as my cardiologist since June 2015. I chose him because he is compassionate, thorough, caring, and takes the time to listen. He saw me almost every day in the hospital before and after my surgery. When he asked why I selected him, I said"because you told me everything would be alright, we will fix you..." I trusted and believed him. I am extremely happy with him and his staff.

Recent follow up exam on 9/4/19. Have been seen by Dr. Islam and his staff for the past 5 years. I find him very professional and caring. He has always taken the time to explain things in layman's terms and answer all questions.

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!
