    The entire Bariatric team is amazing. I had a great visit with Dr. Husain. I can see why she is the head of the Bariatric team. She was very professional yet personable. She explained things to me and addressed any concerns. She encouraged me and said I was doing great! It motivated me to continue toward my goal. I walked out feeling really good about my progress and about myself.

    The clinic squeezed me in and Dr. Husain was very kind and efficient. She provided enough information and removed the fluid from my band. This eliminated my severe acid reflux immediately. She also gave me instructions of what to do if I needed help while she was out of the office the following week.

    She is kind, caring, open and everything all should be. I would give her the highest recommendation on all levels. She is the reason I wasn't nervous about the surgery.
