Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr Hussein is a very personable doctor who cares about his patients. Even when he was off and out of the office he made the time to come in the office to see me for my situation. He takes his time explaining things and taking care of his patients well being. Excellent bedside manner!!! I wish there were more doctors like him.

Dr. Hussein & his staff go above & beyond. He very quickly diagnosed the illness and formed a plan of treatment and thoroughly explained all of our concerns & questions. He is very respectful of the patients time. Lindsey & Ashley were very quick to respond & resolve a problem we had with the pre-authorization of the prescription.

Dr. Hussein recently treated me in the hospital. His determination to find what was wrong with me was amazing. Beyond the medical part of my illness there was a great compassion in him for me and my family. He spent much time explaining things to my family in depth. He is a wonderful doctor and such a caring person. Our family feels so blessed that he was my physician.
