Hear What Our Patients Have to Say
Dr. Hussein has taken care of my children for 9 years. I cannot express how professional and compassionate Dr Hussein is when dealing with his little patients. I highly recommend without any reservations that Kids and Teens Pediatrics would be a sound choice for your children's health care. You will be greeted with beautiful smiles from his incredible staff and provided the utmost professional care.
I love this practice. There have been several times where my child needed to be seen that day. They ALWAYS have made the time to see my children the SAME day. He is very nice as is his entire staff.
One of the best doctors my son ever had he takes his patients as if they are his own. His heart is genuine and he doesn't play no games.
Absolutely love Dr. Hussein. He has cared for all three of my children starting with the oldest when he was about a yr old. The care he showed is still the care he shows 2 more children later. I will continue to follow him wherever he goes because he's the best! My kids and I are not just another patient number and that definitely stands out.
Followed Dr Hussein, my son doesn't like any other doctor ! Always available and fast when I visit the office. Is notable that he loves his job and every time asks if I have any question and helps get the solution right away !!
This entire staff is just incredible!!!! The passion for the care of the children is just priceless . It's hard to find any staff let alone a doctor that truly cares for the convince efficiency effectively well being of your child! I'm so blessed to have found Osama Hussein and his staff once again. I highly recommend this opportunity for you and your child(ren). Thank you again to all of you for your sincerity and kindness.
One of the hardest decisions you make as a mother is to decide who you will trust to advise you on medical decisions for your baby ... 3 children later I am still 200% confident that I could not have picked a better pediatrician! Dr. HUSSEIN is the absolute best doctor I have ever met. He truly sets himself above all others, going above and beyond for his patients and their families. Not only do my children adore him, but he always puts me at ease when it comes to diagnosis and treatment, giving me the opportunity to ask questions and voice any concerns I may have. I highly recommend Dr. HUSSEIN and fully support his new journey! His office staff is also absolutely wonderful and they too go above and beyond to care for patients and their families!
Dr.Hussein was my first choice when moving to Dover with my first daughter and three years later I still choose him with both my daughters now! He's professional, patient, extremely kind, and you can trust he knows what's best. I highly recommend him!
More than happy to follow doctor Hussein to any location. Although I do wish he would come to Seaford! I wouldn't have any other doctor treat my son. I trust him and my son loves him. The ladies at the front desk couldn't be replaced with anyone better! Who answers the phones and greets the callers by name??? These ladies! love them to pieces!
