Dr. Hussaini was attentive, listened (with eyes!), connected information, addressed concerns, offered suggestions for alternative healing and research rather than only medicines, and ordered appropriate tests. Follow-up is in one week, rather than months as I have experienced with many other physicians.

My first visit with Dr. Hussaini was great! She listened to my concerns and came up with a thoughtful treatment plan that I'm comfortable with. I didn't feel rushed and she answered all my questions (I had a checklist with me). I also like the facility -- easy parking and they have imaging right next door. I was able to get right in to imaging with no wait to get my xrays done. Overall, it was a great first appointment and I'm looking forward to being her patient for as long as required.

Dr. Hussaini took her time to answer all of my questions throughly and I didn’t feel rushed. And she didn’t push me to take the medication that she suggested. She gave me alternative option that I could try before taking any another meds. And I truly appreciate her for that, it really means a lot. I’m really glad I found her.

Dr. Hussaini was very thorough, listened attentively to me and had a very pleasant manner. I am hopeful that she can diagnose my problems, she is running comprehensive tests and there is already a possible auto-immunne disorder.

Dr. Hussaini is exactly what I am looking for in a rheumatologist - a good combo of meds and supplements to support my optimal health with my autoimmune conditions. I also did not need to over-explain my autoimmune conditions, she was very easy to communicate with. I highly recommend her!

She is ignorant about advances in fibromyalgia. She stated right off the bat that she prescribed no drugs for it. She is ignorant about the new blood testing for fibromyalgia which is covered by Medicare. At one point she said, “why do you need me, you already know about it.” Worthless waste of time.

Doctor was thoughtful, patient, and both offered recommendations while also allowing room for me to speak about past experiences or current medical concerns. It felt more like a conversation about my health and less like a, "one-size fits all" version of healthcare. I appreciate that more than I can express.

First of all, I have seen 3 different Rheumatologists with in the past 5-6 yrs & it's not because I'm picky (all because I had Medi-cal). They were all good doctors don't get me wrong but of course very limited to what they can offer I feel like. But it's different with Dr. Hussaini. Like OMG. 0 to 100 real quick. My first meeting was done through Zoom & just by speaking with her, I felt the passion for care and the understanding she has for her patients esp. with my condition (Rheumatoid Arthritis). She listened to every concern and answered all my questions. On top of that, she had ordered a complete blood work with extra tests to make sure everything is accurate, got me an authorization by the end of our meeting. It was like wow I feel like finally someone who truly cares! Second, in-person appointment on August 24th just a week ago, I was convinced that she is the answer to all my r.a prayers! =)

I liked her desire to be conservative in treatment before anything else. Also, she explained potential side affects of a new medication, which no other doctor has done before for me.

Intelligent, so smart she could use plain English to explain my possible medical scenarios. So smart she explained why no additional drugs were needed. So smart she LISTENED to every one of my concerns, until I understood my medical condition and her course of treatment.
