Doctor Hussain always listens and is helpful when I have a question for her.

June 17, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Hussain is focused on the patient and patient care during the office visit. She treats with respect and straight-forwardness, and a compassionate and caring manner, she is accommodating of patient personality/temperament. However, she is always running "late" and staff is disorganized and not quite so compassionate. General receptionist staff at the Copley check-in desk are usually rude, curt, distracting, uncaring.
