I recently became a patient of Dr Hussein after hearing what a fabulous physician she is. Made my first appointment and was pleasantly surprised. She is caring, kind, explains everything she is doing, gentle, and takes as much time as you need. Also, she is easily reached by phone or email and is quick to answer. So happy I finally found a Doctor I am happy with!
