He listens and has been very responsive to my needs. It’s important to research your conditions yourself. Doctor is open to hearing what I say and answering any questions. Takes time to listen . I recommend him and would add that if it turns out he is not right for you , then find another doctor. So far I respect what he has to offer.

my experience was exceptional. Beside being so Nervous of the month prior to the actual day of my procedure, it was a breeze the staff where friendly, professional respectful. Dr Hosseini is professional calming, engaging on answering my concern and questions. He took time to call me back for more question and concern that i had. And yes I would recommend Dr Hosseini. to my family and friends.

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."
