Ratings for Dr. Rehana A. Hussain
Always late to the office in the morning. I've waited in waiting room for 4 hours for a 15 minutes visit. Always eating during appointments. Always taking phone calls during appointments. Had to repeat myself. It was as if she wasn't paying attention. She gets rude when you say something to her about her being late and making you wait for hours.
This doctor serves a huge area. By the time she was able to see my son, it was midnight of the 3 day medical stay. I am so greatful for her care and concern. after moving from there, it has taken 7 years to find another psych that could help him. His meds are the same as she determined way back in 2005 with additions to them. She's really the best. Her services are always being called upon. Be glad she holds up under such pressure.
I had social anxiety disorder and this doctor helped me properly manage it. I am now able to work and socialize with minimal issues. I had tried psychotherapy for many years and this is the only place where I found help for my problems. I will be forever grateful to Dr. Hussain. She is knowledgeable and changed my day to day life.
One of the absolute worst doctors that I have ever been to in my life. Nothing more than a pill pusher. Along with myself, she has sent close family members to the hospital on numerous occasions for the fatal doses of prescription medication that she prescribes. Not just the doses, but the mixtures as well. Someone this careless of the affect they are having on peoples lives should not be practicing at all, let alone with the ability to affect ones mental stability. RUN VERY FAR FROM THIS DOCTOR.
2-3 hour waits ar norm. I don't know why the staff schedules people for appointments in the morning when they know she isn't there and won't be there-they have said so! Start scheduling later and there won't be such a back up!!!!!!!!!! Dr. Hussain does know her stuff, though.
I also wish I had had a more positive experience. On my first appointment, I waited for 7 hours -- yes, 7 hours. On my second, I waited 4 hours. I guess that's an improvement. When I suffered extreme nausea, vomiting and headaches from her prescribed meds, I called her and she said take half the dose. When the symptoms persisted, I checked the Medline website, which indicates that these are serious side effects for my medications. I called the doctor a second time and she repeated her first advice. Finally, when I couldn't take it anymore, I called a third time and she told me, "None of my patients have suffered those symptoms." This was not helpful. Dr. Hussain never once expressed sympathy or concern for my well-being and never even commented on the extremely long office waits. Her bedside manner and professionalism are both a big fat zero.
I could only wish I had the experience with Dr. Hussain that everyone has written here. She had me on meds that werent even for my depression. She nor her staff has yet to even check on me since I missed appointments. I realize they are busy but in the field they are in, common sense says check on a patient suffering from severe depression if they suddenly stop coming to their appointments.
I agree w/all the others you WAIT WAIT AND WAIT SOME MORE!!! THIS IS VERY INCONSIDERATE ON HER PART SHE NEEDS TO BE THERE ON TIME AND/OR PICK UP MORE DAYS. If it were not for her VERY WONDERFUL STAFF I would have left several years ago. But sometimes insurance rule where you go.
This doctor is excellent; but be aware when you make an appointment with her, you may have up to a two (2) hour waiting time. She is very knowledgeable in her field and doesn't rush you out of her office; takes her time with you when you go in there. She has a very good "bedside manner" and is a very caring doctor. When my medication wasn't working, she immediately changed it. I would highly recommend Dr. Hussain.
