A cancer diagnosis is the most frightening happening in your life. I loved this man the minute I met with him. He is brilliant, takes whatever time you need to ask him questions, gives you his opinion, makes the patient laugh, knowing the feeling his patient is experiencing. He is thorough, extremely brilliant in his field, with the greatest personally to boot. It has been 14 years cancer free and I owe it all to Dr. Hussein for my life. Thank You Dr. Hussein for being you, and being my Dr

I have been a patient of Dr. Hussein's since October, 2012. I would NOT go to another Oncologist. He's kind, intelligent & explains in detail whatever is needed. His assistant Jorge is wonderful. And Sandy Dr. Husseins nurse is a very loving & caring. They all treat you with the utmost respect & care. I would recommend them to anyone, God forbid if they need treatment for cancer. The whole office staff goes out of there way to treat you with respect.

Im a patient Dr. Hussein I can honestly say by far an excellent physician he made me so comfortable. In the world that we live in now everything is so fast .My vist was outstanding you really can't find doctors that listen to your opinion and how you feel about what's happening with your body.He was patient, caring and never rushed me. The Staff at his office from the to down to when you check out was efficient and caring. Nurse George and the Navigator Lauren Were The BEST. TEAM?

Dr. Hussein treated me when I had breast cancer. Was up-to-date on all the latest trials and options. Concerned, caring on a personal level.
