Dr Hussain is great

Reviewed on Jan 15, 2018

after 10 Days, I still have not received results through his office. the dr. requested a CD be sent, by me immediately following the CT scan, which I did. it arrived at the address he provided within 3 Days. when I emailed the office, the nurse responded saying images take 2-3 weeks. I reminded her, by email, that the CD was in their office and I also wanted to know the results of my EEG. she responded that she'd try to find that. I still haven't heard. there is no follow up appt. scheduled so I'm not certain how I'll get the results and diagnosis.

I can't say enough about Dr. Hassain. He's extremely friendly and informative.
