"Dr. Hussain is a very tentative doctor. He pays attention to your concerns and he works with you as to help alleviate some of the pain or most of the pain that you are going through at any given time. He is gentle with his injections and he tries his best to make his patients comfortable. I have been with Dr. Hussain for many years and I will stay with him as long as I can. So, if you are looking for a good rheumatologist, I highly recommend Dr. Hussain."

"Dr. Hussain treats me for 7 autoimmune diseases. I first came to Dr. Hussain for inflammation, but he put the pieces of the puzzle together and diagnosed me with Lupus/mixed connective tissue disease. Dr. Hussain takes time to listen to my concerns and will address each issue. He even gives me injections in my hands and feet. Dr. Hussain takes a personal interest and really cares about my quality of life. I'm so grateful I have such a kind and competent rheumatologist"
