Ratings for Dr. Husam B. Shitia
This practice is run as a walk in which is wonderful. I've never had to wait longer than 15 minutes to be seen. The doctor is excellent at diagnosing and treating using common sense instead of a ton of testing. He picked up a vitamin deficiency causing huge issues when my prior doctor had brushed it off for years. Most interesting thing? He actually dials the phone and calls you directly with test results. Even if everything is ok he still calls to let you know everything is fine. I've never had a physician who was so committed to the well being of his patients.
I have always fround Dr.****ia to be very professional and knowledgable. He seems to listen and gennerally comes up with a diagnosis for symptoms very quickly. His diagnosis, thus far, have been accurate and helpful. He seemed a little short with my 12 year old son, so I'm not sure pediatrics is his specialty, but as an adult, I've seen him several times and really like his manner and, again, his knowledge seems right on target. His staff have always been extremely friendly and helpful and there is never a long wait.
Never rushes, always listens, really cares about my health. When I didn't have medical insurance, he gave me enough samples of the expensive meds I need to get me through until I had coverage again. When he's had to refer me to a specialist, they have all been top notch. I had emergency surgery several years ago, and he came to my hospital room afterwards and spent almost half an hour discussing the surgery and making sure all my medication orders were correct.
