Patient Comments (2)
Houston, TX |
Wait time is way way way too long (hours; no excuses; no apologize) It was as if our time didn't matter to her Would never go back
in Houston, TX |
Dr Husain was very pleasant and eager to listen. Her office staff is another story. They are the most incompetent group of office staff I have encountered. They have messed up on my testing orders time and time again. They do not bother trying to rectify the situation or apologize for their errors. They will tell you their phones and fax line are down....while they are on the phone with you. The doctor, although very skilled, will undoubtly loose patients due to the fact her staff is not engaged
