He is no longer located in Lakewood..and (no longer accepting medicaid ins) Now he is at Garden State Medical Center, 1100 Hwy 70 in Whiting. 732-849-0077. I am very sad he has moved his practice because he has always been such a kind and patient doctor. If you are fortunate enough to live down that way, and are looking for a great Rheumatologist... he is your guy :) ** I am rating his NEW office in Whiting, NOT the old, dingy, 3 hr waiting room in Lakewood**

I enjoy my interactions with Dr Hussain, and his assistant, Canta. Both are very knowledgeable and genuinely interested in what is happening to you. Dr. Hussain takes the time to explain procedures and why they are needed. Wait times can be long, but I've never waited more than 45 minutes. I would recommend Dr Hussain to any and all of my friends.

Dr. Hussain is very thorough and understanding. He has greatly helped me to deal with my Sjogren's. He has a calming nature that's helps you to relax. Previously, I had a doctor that was not understanding at all and I wondered if she even understood anything about dealing with patients with Sjogren's. After two visits to my previous to her, I decided to look for another Rheumatologist and I am so glad I finally found Dr. Hussain. I would definetly refer my friends and family to him.
