She didn't know I was there, even though I confirmed with someone over the phone that I was coming. Ridiculous.

This was our family's first visit. Our son has responded to the medication and Dr. Hussain had some good thoughts to share with us. We are looking forward to more growth and progress in our son as we are new to the area.

After Several apts. always a very long wait time. Never refilled prescriptions in a timely manner. Didn’t tell me that she didn’t take my insurance after it changed until after my apt so I had to pay all cash. I hadto quit one medication cold turkey because it took over 5 messages to her “answering service” (which is really just a Regis building room) and 2 messages from my pharmacy with still no call back. How unprofessional for a psychiatrist! I should have listened to the other bad reviews before giving her a try. I’m reporting her to the AMA over this.

She is basically a pill pusher! Charges She barely even looks at you, has her nose in her computer the whole time! Won't refill your script unless you see her, so she can charge you! She called and canceled my appointment,and rescheduled because she had something more important. I told her my script needed to be refilled, I wouldn't have enough to make it to the new appointment date. She said she would take care of it, well she didn't!! Walgreen's gave me an emergency supply, while they reached out to her. I called 4 days in a row, no reply to me or Walgreen's! I called the 5th day, and the answering service told me she wanted to know if I could come in that day at 5:00pm. I told them I couldn't because of my schedule. I run out completely today, and start having bad side affects! She only cares about the money, not you!! Do yourself a favor and find a good Doctor!!!!

Should have listened to other reviews, waited nearly an hour after my appointment time to see the dr, was only in there maybe 15 minutes and she answered her phone in the middle of my appointment. I was very unimpressed, I won't be returning.

I didnt really feel like I got the answer or help I was looking for. I didnt feel genuinely cared about as a patient. I think helping people to come to better state of mind is a great responsibility that shouldntbe taken lightly or as if its 'just a job'. Nothing personal against the doc. Just wasn't the right doctor for me. Thank you.

She wants to treat you her way, and when mymedication that she proscribed had bed side effects she didn't even call me or my pharmacy back. Her secratetary told me "I can't do anything but give her message if it isemergency go to hospital". That's the first psychiatris that I had that does not call back her patients.

Dr. Hussain is easy to talk to, but she was very quick to prescribe meds (within 15 minutes of my first appointment). Subsequent appointments were just about how the meds felt, not my depression/anxiety.

Dr. Hussain is great. She listens to all of your concerns and is very knowledgable about the medication she prescribes. And unlike many doctors these days, she doesn't over prescribe or just hand out prescriptions for controlled meds withouttrying safer alternatives first, which is something I love about her. The only two things I would like to see improve is the wait time before appointments, as there is always at least a 45 minute wait, as well as response time when contacting her over the phone. Leaving a message with the answering service and waiting for a call back takes time and is a little inconvenient. If patients need their medication(s), or if they have urgent questions, the doctor should be reachable within 24 hours. On the flip side, I believe she also works at a hospital in downtown Chicago quite often, so some of this is u derstandable. Other than those two minor issues Dr. Hussain is an amazing doctor and I would definitely reccomend her to anyone in need of a good psychiatrist.

I thought she was very nice but our visit was very rushed and I do not think she was of a help to me. She answered text messages while I was talking which was distracting and a bit rude. I donot think I will be back. I need someone to help me and I do not think she is a right fit.

Waited over an hour to meet with Dr. Multiple people in lobby were complaining that they have to wait over an hour to see Dr. every appt. When meeting with Dr. she made almost no eye contact and typed on hercomputer the whole time. When asking about side effects of medications, Dr. was brief and was interrupted by an IM that had come in, which she became distracted by and then did not finish discussion. After IM came in Dr asked for her co-pay, and then seemed to want me to leave asap. Will never go back to this Dr.

I showed up early to fill out the paperwork because of all the reviews that said long wait time. 15 minutes after my scheduled appointment the doctor was still not even in the office. I waited for a full 30 minutesfor the doctor to even show up to the clinic and felt like the doctor wasn't even interested in me but only typing the notes on her computer to get me out of there so she could see her next patient.

I thought Dr. Hussain was great. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a psychiatrist. I could tell she was listening to what I was telling her and not just asking question after question. She gave me feedback insteadof just typing what I was saying. She was able to answer all my questions.

Dr. Hussain is wonderful. She truly cares about her patients and is extremely flexible and understanding. Unlike most other doctors, she has availability at night (on certain days) and sometimes even on Saturdays. This is very important tothose that work during the week, as you do not have to take a vacation day to get in to see the doctor. In all honesty, I couldn't ask for a better doctor. I would highly recommend Dr. Hussain to anyone in need of a good psychiatrist.

I love Dr Hussain.... I feel like not only does she care, but also is super intelligent and knows what shes talking about. She takes the time to explain everything to the fullest. She has changed my life with all thecorrect medications and I've only seen her twice!! I keep getting better and better. I would recommend her to everybody that needs help with medication management.
