Dr. Mehboob Qassam has the following 2 specialties
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
- Emergency Medicine
An emergency physician is a doctor who is an expert in handling conditions of an urgent and extremely dangerous nature. These specialists work in the emergency room (ER) departments of hospitals where they oversee cases involving cardiac distress, trauma, fractures, lacerations and other acute conditions.
Emergency physicians are specially trained to make urgent life-saving decisions to treat patients during an emergency medical crisis. These doctors diagnose and stabilize patients before they are either well enough to be discharged, or transferred to the appropriate department for long-term care.
See the board certifications this doctor has received. Board certifications provide confidence that this doctor meets the nationally recognized standards for education, knowledge and experience.

As far as emergency rooms go, the wait was roughly that of a general care physician's waiting area. I think people forget that the emergency room is for emergencies, and not for chronic pain or diagnoses. Especially since many individuals scavenge emergency rooms for pain medications to get high. I loved my experience at this emergency room while I waited with my mother. Great care, and prompt!
I went to the Emergency Room for a sudden onset of new and different back pain. Once this emergency room doctor found out I had chronic pain, he told me 'You just need to go to your pain management doctor'. I begged him to figure out what was causing the pain--I was not even asking for pain medicine! I knew something was different and something was definitely wrong. He told me he would not do anything else for me. He was rude, judgmental, and uncaring. I had a huge new problem that required 8 hours of surgery and 2 weeks in the hospital--not that any of this was figured out by THIS physician. I will never go to Huguley Hospital again and recommend that no one ever take anyone they care about to the emergency room at this facility!
