Patient Comments (7)
in Brownsville, TX |
He is demanding of the staff and patient for a reason - he is really good. He did my spinal tap after another failed, a second refused. We now wait because the fluid showed elevated protein. I will always recommend Dr, Hussain. Guys just because he is demanding does not mean he is not the best. He has the perfect balance of relaxing you before he starts but being 100% focused. I never cried out because I did not want to distract him. But he knew I was hurting and took care of me.

Would avoid doctor at all costs. He avoids his calls from the hospital and does not attend to his patients in a timely manner.

Unprofessional, inconsiderate, a miserable excuse for a business. 2 hour minimum wait time. And the office is filthy
Mcallen, TX |
Office staff is very rude. Have no consideration that person calling just had a stroke over stress, and they still manage not to care and make them stress even more. All that is needed is for paperwork to be filled out for benefits to be paid from insurance, deadline is a couple days away but they can not promise to have paperwork done.....meaning no benefits will be paid if not submitted in time. It seems as they have no compassion for their patients and all they care is about their funds.

DR. Hussain is the best!!!! He turned my extra severe back pain into a mild discomfort after the surgery was performed. He treated me as an individual, during the whole process of my situation and condition. I appreciate his expertise and I am very pleased with the results of my operation. There are some opportunities with his staff to get the correct information back to the patient and in a more timely manner. His office is very busy every time I visit, which means to me that he is very good.

Why isn't my comments put down from yesterday. I will not go back to this office again after waiting 2.5 hours and spent less then 2 minutes with him. I don't even know what to do with my meds after 30 days
in McAllen,texas |
The office staff is insufficient. We have waited 1 week for them to call insurance on an approval for a brain ct scan that the doctor ordered. We have called twice and office staff told us they don't have time. This is the second time this happens. The office and examination rooms in Mission are not very clean. Doctor is always in a hurry doesn't spend but about 2 minutes with patient after waiting for a couple of hours. Surgery went well .
