Patient Comments (1)
in Berkeley, CA |
An awful blend of arrogance and incompetence, all Dr. Hosseini does is to push Dicyclomine, Pentasa, and Humira no matter what you say or need. He couldn't feel swelling/abnormalities I could feel clear as day ("I just feel your organs) and took no interest in the one treatment that had helped me, just sneering at it and dismissing it even though it helped me far more than anything he ever suggested. Turns out I had a slow growing lymphoma I could have caught far sooner but for him. Awful "Dr."
