Dr Hussain has my health and life as a top priority. She is very factual orientated and extremely knowledgeable of cancer, different past studies on cancer, and current courses of action. She never sugar coats anything and is truthful about the progression of my disease. She address my very aggressive cancer, with pro active monitoring. I have learned so much about cancer and how it is unique for each individual. And she addresses that each individual body is different from any other past or previous patient. I have total trust in her. It's hard to find a doctor that I can trust. She also has beyond superb communication skills and able to make complicated explanations easily understood. I was not a fan of Mychart before, but she stressed that if she becomes my doctor that she needs and demands constant communication with a patience. And if I was not readily available, I would not be a match. Well, I am now a Mychart advocate. I love it. Dr. Hussain are beyond prompt with all communication, problems, problem solving, and setting up appointments via Mychart messages. Usually within 15 minutes. That's impressive. Unlike other doctors that may take 1 day or 2. She is also very organized and gives me printed follow up, lab results, and other information before I leave my appointment with her. I leave more than content that all my questions have been answered about my course of treatment and the information that she gives. She is always prompt, on time, and realizing that I have to go for chemo on the same day. I am very lucky to have such a rare doctor. I am only accustomed to The Best. And Dr. Hussain meets my impossible high standards. This comforts me.
