      I highly recommend Dr Husain! Had my initial patient visit today. Check in process was a breeze. The office is immaculate and very relaxing. The staff are extremely friendly, professional and courteous. There was no waiting time. Dr Husain was extremely thorough. I have been doing a skin check annually with my previous doctor however i have not had such a comprehensive skin check like I had today. Dr Husain has excellent bedside manners, extremely courteous and very professional. The whole visit took less than 30 mins including check in and check out time. I highly recommend Dr Husain and would definitely recommend him to all my family and friends

      I had the pleasure of being one of Dr. Husain's patients when he practiced in Northern Virginia. Was very sad to see him move but happy for him. It's not often that you find a dermatologist that does it all. Regular dermatology, cosmetic and a mohs surgeon. Always up on the latest procedures and willing to listen to your concerns. Would highly recommend him.

      Dr. Husain is exactly what you are looking for in a doctor - he is extremely kind, knowledgable, and patient. He takes the time to explain what he thinks is going on and how to best treat it. His staff members are great as well and help ensure that his practice is run efficiently and effectively. There is a pharmacy downstairs where you can pick up medicine that he prescribes shortly after your appointment. Glad to have finally found a great dermatologist!

      My experience with Dr. Husain exceeded my greatest expectations. I’d been to others doctors for the same issue and they claimed there was nothing more they could do, Dr. Husain had my issue completely solved in two weeks! Great bedside manner and clearly up to date on the latest dermatological knowledge and techniques...I strongly recommend him!

      Dr Husain truly listens to me when I talk about my skin concerns. No dermatologist has ever focused so much on my skin care needs and worked with me to create a regimen that fits my wants. He’s an excellent physician

      Dr Husain did an amazing job - I’ve gone to 3 other dermatologists over the past ten years; he makes quick but thoughtful decisions and gave me great advice. He also didn’t hesitate answering some other questions I had. I’m fortunate to have found him

      The primary basis on which a physician or surgeon should be evaluated is whether that person is technically competent. This is the paramount consideration. Dr. Husain’s level of technical expertise and competence as a surgeon and physician is very high. He does his work thoroughly and with great care. In addition, Dr. Husain is low key, listens carefully and explains things clearly. He is a highly competent physician and surgeon and a pleasant person. I wish that more doctors were like him.

      Dr Zain Husain is an amazing amazing doctor! I had acne that made me so embarrassed to go out, within seconds he diagnosed me with hormonal acne. After having tried literally every product on the market, he gave me something that rid me of my acne & gave me the confidence to face people & feel beautiful. He’s an amazing person & physician who is highly skilled. I’ve never come across a better dermatologist in my life.

      Dr. Zain Husain is so amazing. I was having so much trouble with my acne. I began trying product after product and nothing helped. So I decided it was time to seek professional help. So I finally made an appointment to the dermatologist. That’s when I met Dr. Husain. He was very helpful and knowledgeable of what type of product to use for my sensitive skin. After using the product for a week, my skin looks flawless. The product removed dark spots, clear up my acne and made it smooth. Thank you!

      I came in to get a surgical excision with Dr. Husain. He came highly recommended by a colleague of mine. I was amazed and comforted by both his professional and caring demeanor. He was so attentive and did not rush through like most doctors. The procedure was nerve-racking but he went through the procedure step-by-step. Since the surgical site was on my leg, I was able to watch a bit and was astonished by his steady hands. I believe my scar would not look this good if I went to any other surgeon

      There were some breakdowns in communication at the support staff level. However, both Dr. Husain & the Office Manager took the time to call me in order to find out details & specific staff issues I had during & after the appointment. Both were very apologetic and committed to follow up with all support staff in order to retrain and avoid misunderstandings, issues, breakdowns in communications in the future for all patients. Excellent follow up by Dr. Husain. Issues resolved within same day.
