The wait was long. They called me after 15 minutes, first with a nurse, then another fifteen minutes with a different doctor, then almost half an hour for the main doctor to see me. The area was empty when I arrive,no other patients, so I didn't understand why the wait.

The longest wait time of any doctor's office I've been to in my entire life! It was well over an hour in a full waiting room, where even an elderly woman had to wait over an hour as well! Not worth it to sit around.

This office is crap. The wait is always long, even if the place is empty. The assistants do all of the work-up. The doctor wont ask how you are and will spend about 1 minute with you total. You have tohound them for any paperwork or any sort of follow-up. But theyre very efficent in making sure they get your money. Im a nurse, and lucky for it because i knew when they were messing up on my paperwork. They tried giving me a copy of my bloodwork from 2 years ago! Luckily i checked the date or i would have had to make yet ANOTHER visit to this office... TL;DR: avoid this place. I will be switching out if here ASAP.

I had an appointment on Saturday, therefore decided to come earlier. There were two new patients in front of me and I had to wait more than two hours to see the doctor Hussein. Finally when the doctor came in, hespent only two minutes with me. I was a new patient as well, so why with two others he spent two hours and with me only two minutes??? He is terrible and unprofessional doctor speaking on his language with his staff considering that I don't understand what they discuss. Never never again I would see this doctor or recommend to anyone. I had to make an appointment to another doctor.

I was very comfortable with Dr. Hussein. I have just moved into this area, and have had some medical problems that he addressed immediately, and provided me with prescriptions that my former Doctor would not re-new for me. Very satisfied!

The wait time had nothing to do with the office staff, there was a problem with my workers comp. paper work and the receptionist went above and beyond to get it straightened out. She handled the situation with the utmost professionalismand compassion. I was a new patient to this office and they treated me as if I was a lifelong patient.

Didn't have a primary care doctor for awhile because she stopped taking my insurance. Found Dr.Hussien on zocdoc and couldn't be happier. I was worried and anxious for a whole week thinking something serious was wrong with me after going towalk in clinics and not being able to get a diagnosis Dr.Hussien finally reassured me that I was over reacting and prescribed me what was necessary to recover. Doctor spent a lot of time with me and I can tell that he was really listening to what I had to say. Will make him my primary care doctor. Highly recommend. Thank you Dr Hussien

The first time I went to the office I had seen Dr. Hussein. I though he was wonderful, took his time to explain everything j needed to know. The Second time I went in for a follow up. I had towait about an hour to see his partner Dr. Rahma. He was mean and i felt like he was rushing me. I was asking questions to things I needed to understand and he definitely looked like it was a bother to him to answer. I went again because I had an extraction at the hospital and the dentist didn't prescribe me anything. When I went back to speak to him he was gone. The office of Dr. Hussein is having a problem with my insurance but even after I did all I could so that they would get paid they are still waiting. Well, I went to see him to see if he could prescribe me anything for the pain I'm having and antibiotics. Because of the problem with my insurance the person at the front desk told me he couldn't see me due to the insurance problem unless I paid him. I am in so much pain, my face is swollen and I didn't have enough on me. I didn't mind leaving it but because it wasn't enough I was not able to be seen. Mind you I called before I left my house and I wasn't told anything. I'm probably not going back to see him again after this. I understand that it's a business but he didn't even have to bring me inside any room. He could just have stepped out and seen me and that's it I could have been on my way. Very inhumane.

Dr. Hussein's office was extremely busy. I made my appointment a few hours before, which may be why I waited 45 minutes to see him. But, my visit was thorough and I was generally happy with the result.

at first I wasn't sure if I wanted to see the doctor after having to speak to one of his rude receptionist, but I decided to go anyways... I waited about 40-45 minutes I believe they see too many patients inone day and they are rushed to see you.the office needs a new make over ( that's my personal view). I spoke to the doctor very nice apologetic about his employees behavior but I can say I actually like him very nice and informative. Again, I just felt like he was rushing trying to see all his patient, but I got everything I needed and I surely will return. Thank you DOC!

Worst doctors visit ever. Horrendous bedside manner and extremely short with his patients. Come here if you want to be in and out of the doctors office but don't if you expect a halfway decent doctor and experience. Absolutely terrible, Ijust moved into the area but I never be back. Id rather travel into the city than have to endure this office which is only a block away from my apartment.

I had a 6 o'clock appointment, but since I noticed there were appointments available on zocdoc before mine I decided to go a little early. Big mistake. I got to the office at 5:30 and was not seen by the doctoruntil 7:30. Also, even though I filled out all of my background info through zocdoc, the receptionist said they can't get the info from the website so I had to fill all of it out again. When I tried to pay the copay using a credit card I was told that they only take cash...what doctor only takes cash? When I was finally seen by the doctor he was nice and very apologetic, but I can't imagine going back to a doctor's office and waiting 2 hours to be seen when I have an appointment, especially as a new patient! I understand that they allow walk-ins, but walk-ins should have to wait if there are people there who have appointments.

There was a long time of wait, but the staff are very nice and friendly, except for the medical assistance she had some attitude, I under stand they were busy little but you gotta be nice to patient we already havingbad day, you only making it worse by the harsh attitude. The front desk are nice like I said friendly, the doctor is handsome ladies meaning you get comfortable talking to him and he seems to me he is good doctor and knowledgeable so far, I did some blood work and I go back to see him again once more, so I would leave my comment back again to see if he cures me.

I always hated coming to the doctors. Although this is my second time seeing him, I must admit that I was actually comfortable and at ease. He's not pressuring me to take all these medications like other doctors have. His officeis always full which is a good thing for me.

I had a very bad experience with this doctor. First he did not examine me for an annual physical. Second, when I stated I needed forms filled out for work he did not ask for any information just filled out theform as if he knew me. My wait time was an hour. I was called in after my appointment time and was not informed of a delay. The doctor spent a total of 5 minutes with me when I was waiting an hour. I do not recommend this doctor for anyone. It was a waste of time.
