It was so helpful. Dr Hussain identified deeper issues. This one session was far more helpful than all my counselling sessions I have been through.

I can't thank Dr Hussain enough for all his help and diagnosis. I highly recommend him. I was experiencing severe emotional difficulties and had been searching for an answer my whole life but was never able to get an answer until I saw Dr Hussain, he really helped me figure out what was going on, diagnosing me with bipolar. He was able to see the symptoms that my self and no one else had been able to pick up on or see and piece them together in just one session. I felt like he really listened to me taking everything into consideration. I felt very comfortable talking to him and felt I was able to be open about my symptoms without being judged. When perscribing me medication he didn't just give me a medication, he really took into account my personal preferences and personal circumstances. Dr Hussain has really helped me be able to piece everything together, make sense of everything and move forward.
