Dr. Husain and his staff went above and beyond during my appointment. He set up an ultrasound for the same day to verify that there was nothing concerning a blood clot. Him and his staff made sure I can in ASAP for my appointment and scheduled the ultrasound with the hospital before I even left the office. I really appreciated the hard work.

July 7, 2020 8:11 AM

Always have a good experience with either Dr. Hussain or my primary dr., Dr. X. For some reason your office has problems with my insurance and I get bills (I have both Medicare & Medicaid & should not be getting bills from you. I wish you could get the billing department in order, your Oswego office itself is the best drs. office I have ever been to.

May 11, 2020 3:46 PM

It is easy for me to speak with Dr Hussain. For me, he has a good demeanor and speaks candid about my health and needs

May 11, 2020 3:46 PM

Everyone is always hospitable at the office. I would like to note that this was a video appt due to Covid 19. The staff was very helpful on reaching out to me and setting this up and when an earlier appt time was available, they worked with the Dr and me to move my appt time up.

May 7, 2020 8:32 AM

Always a good visit with Dr. Hussain. Good guy. I'm glad they could fit me in at the last minute to see me.

March 18, 2020 12:29 PM

January 29, 2020 5:20 PM

The nurse assistant who took my vitals was attentive and professional. This was my first visit for a complete physical in decades and the physician took the time to answer my questions and ask about any specific health concerns I had. The questions I had post office visit were answered timely. I will continue to use this service provider as my primary physician henceforth as long as they are available.

January 29, 2020 5:20 PM

Very satisfactory visit and satisfied with the service received. Was surprised when I inquired if a recommended procedure would be covered by my insurance and was told by the reception staff that I would have to contact my provider in order to determine that information even though the clinic has my insurance information i.e. provider and plan.

January 21, 2020 10:09 PM

good

January 20, 2020 6:18 PM

Dr. Hussain was very personable and seemed sincerely interested in both my physical and mental health. This was especially appreciated as one particular specialist I have been seeing has seemed somewhat uninterested in my overall health.

January 20, 2020 2:39 PM

Dr Hussain always takes time to listen to my needs, and ask important questions. I appreciate him.

January 20, 2020 6:20 AM

Doctor was respectful & talked appropriately to me. He was patient and answered all my questions.

Overall my experience was quite good. The Advocate group was installing a new but not improved system and that has been a pain, costing me significant time on three occasions so far.

December 9, 2018 6:00 PM

very helpful and courteous. listened to my needs.

November 29, 2018 6:00 PM

Provider was a great listener and VERY caring.

November 27, 2018 6:00 PM

doctor went through things too fast didn't even recommend the over the counter drug I was asking for he just said "any anti fungal" drug. Not very helpful. very quick and short .

November 26, 2018 6:00 PM

He is very good every time I visit with him. The communication online is very delayed. I needed a description refilled and waited 3 business days for a response. I think it should be same day or early the following day.

November 24, 2018 6:00 PM

it was fine. first time to see him but he was helpful.

Respectful, efficient timing, resourceful & caring.

September 22, 2018 7:00 PM

I submitted an eVisit request and was referred to see a medical professional for further evaluation of my symptoms. Dr. Husain was the first available to see me. He was competent, compassionate and thorough. He provided medications that cured my illness.

August 18, 2018 7:00 PM

love this Dr always very helpful

August 18, 2018 7:00 PM

Good experience

August 16, 2018 7:00 PM

I waited for over 15 minutes because I was very early for the appointment, it was my first time at that location, it was not because Dr. Hussain was running late. I really like him, he listens to my concerns and offers suggestions. My mental health has improved, as Dr. Hussain suggested I use an antidepressant. My life has changed for the better. Give that man a raise!

July 16, 2018 7:00 PM

happy as always since I met him. excellent doctor.

June 23, 2018 7:00 PM

the office never called back to set the appointments the doctor said that I would need in order to continue taking my medications

excellent.

June 6, 2018 7:00 PM

he was excellent and showed respect for me

May 28, 2018 7:00 PM

excellent

May 28, 2018 7:00 PM

I had fallen and right knee was very swollen when I made apt. By the time I saw the Dr. it was much better. He checked both knees, and decided they had just been bruised. He was very thorough in checking them out.

May 21, 2018 7:00 PM

you're rapid strep tests stink and the doctor did not treat me so I waited for 3 days for the culture to comeback and then they let me know at 5:00 on a Friday after I was in pain they were starting me on an antiobiotic.

April 16, 2018 7:00 PM

I am satisfied with my health provider and his office team.

April 16, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Hussain listened to my concerns. I have been feeling anxious. After a questionnaire, he stated that I was also depressed. This was not what I wanted to hear. Dr. Hussain suggested an anti-depressant. I cannot believe the difference the medication has made. Why did I wait so long? I am glad he is my provider.

March 17, 2018 7:00 PM

it was my first time here, my doctor was awesome he really listened to me.

March 12, 2018 7:00 PM

Glad I found him. my health has improved since coming to him. Have recommended him to others. Especially anyone that is with Edward health care like I was.

February 26, 2018 6:00 PM

The Dr was very nice and thorough.

February 20, 2018 6:00 PM

I contacted the pt. advocate after my visit on 2/1. The RECEPTIONIST was horrible. Wanted to charge me $30 after explaining I have no fee or co-pay. Called her supervisor, just as poor. Filed complaints to BCBS about these two women.

January 10, 2018 6:00 PM

This was the worst healthcare experience I have ever had. The physician sat in front of me and googled my symptoms and used WebMD. He then printed out my "diagnosis" from Web MD and handed me the paperwork and wrote me a script for a $300 ointment that he said might work. Then he took a picture of me with his cell phone and said it was for my medical record.
