  • Not the best experience
    Reviewed on September 26th, 2016  •  Verified patient
    Dr. Hussain was very nice and welcoming however as a physician he seemed very dismissive and ignorant. It was easy to talk to him, he was a very kind man but was quick to make up his mind and slow to consider alternatives. I would rate the level of care I received as superficial, probably fine if you have a cold and need a doctors note, but if you have anything a little bit more serious I would considering finding a physician who will take the time to investigate your condition thoroughly.

    I had a great experience with this doctor. I had my first physical checkup with him, and he was so courteous and made me feel comfortable even though I was quite nervous about the exam. He is also very knowledgeable and able to answer all my questions about the test. Overall very satisfied with the visit.

    I had read a few reviews prior to going. My DR. retired a few years back and his replacement end up leaving quite shortly after but my first impression was not great so I was not thrilled with looking for a new doctor but knew I must. Dr Hussain is a very pleasant man. He apologized for keeping me waiting - my appointment was at 4:00 and he entered the room at 4:02. Wow! Was I impressed. He explained everything we need to do and what happens next. I'm really happy with my decision.

    Great experience so far. The ladies at the reception were nice, the clinic was clean, and I did not have to wait long to see Dr. Hussain. He was nice, courteous and sincere. He seems to be a patient person and willing to listen to what I have to say which is important to me. His approach to medicine and health seems to be inline with what I want and expect from my family Physician

  • I traveled downtown from Vaughan to have him sit with me for 3 minutes...
    Reviewed on March 24th, 2016  •  Verified patient
    I started telling Dr. Hussain my current symptoms and after listening he said it seems to be the flu and that if I were to get blood work done (as requested) it'd come back abnormal because I was sick and suggest I come back next week. I carried on telling him I had sharp pains in my right lower chest and that I often have low energy, he continued to repeat "come back in a week so we can do blood work then" and then suggested if I wanted to switch to a female doctor that they have 2 in house and excused me. I was taken back by this. The only reason I chose to see him was because the reviews I saw he had. This is the very reason why I rarely visit the doctors. I'm so glad I had I had another appointment with Dr. Nhan upstairs otherwise it would've been a complete waste of time and money going down there.

  • First & Physical
    Reviewed on March 21st, 2016  •  Verified patient
    So far so good. Initial meet and greet was quick and painless, I showed up 10 minutes late but they still got me in within 30 minutes. Dr. Shabbir is great and very casual to speak to - which is something I appreciate in people I interact with. He always takes the time to explain why I should do/ care about things or why he's asking questions instead of just asking me questions and then collecting the answers in silence. My second visit was to get my blood tested and a full physical. Again, was seated and checked within minutes of walking in at 8AM when they opened. Bloodwork left me dizzy (which is normal - I'm a child when it comes to that stuff), and they were kind and let me sit there. The girl at the desk (I forget her name now) brought me water 3 times and candy. Then they let me lay down on the bed. Really attentive and caring. So far amazing experience. Let's hope that's as often as I'll ever need to see them!

    Reviewed on March 4th, 2016  •  Verified patient
    I was great to meet Dr. Hussain...he allowed me to explain what I was looking for in a Family Doctor. We seemed to be on the same page and I can not expect much until he has had a chance to review all my records from my previous doctor. I like the fact that in additional medicine they are into herbs and other Asian medicine which is a great departure from constantly being given chemicals...side by side these things work better. I look forward to my next meeting when he reviews my files and can tell me if I'm still alive....hope so!

    Dr. Shabbir Hussain was nice, informed, listened and proposed many possible solutions and just general medical maintenance. He's a younger doctor in his thirties and deals with a high number of younger patients as he is close to a university. I discussed my diet (vegetarian), medical history and he suggested getting a full medical image of my current health to be able to use as a reference. He cares about his practice and is approachable, remains open minded and discusses avenues to improve and maintain your health. More to be discovered in the future but happy for a first meeting.

    My wife and I arrived there on time and we waited for about half and hour to forty minutes until we got to talk to the doctor (there were a lot of patients and only him in the clinic on that Saturday). Once he got to us he apologized for the wait and payed attention to all of our questions without making us feel in a hurry. He also answered everything in an excellent manner and made sure we understood clearly. He took me as his patient so he's my family doctor now. As for my wife... he told her that he was more than happy to make her his patient but he also asked her if she would prefer to have a woman as her family doctor for comfort reasons and went ahead and recommended her two doctors that were taking patients. Also, the two girls on the front desk were very nice and friendly to everyone. Except for the waiting time, an great first impression.

    I had made a mistake about the location of the clinic, as a result I was running about 20 minutes late. The nurses were very kind and the clinic accommodated me and still saw me when I arrived, which I really appreciated. I saw a resident doctor first, who was helpful and caring. I then met Dr. Hussain, he was very professional and kind. I was never kept waiting, everyone I met was caring and courteous and I am so happy to have Dr. Hussain as my new family doctor!

    I've been searching for a family doctor for some time now, so I'm very happy I found this site and Dr. Hussain. In my introductory appointment we covered my medical history and concerns, and then I received a flu shot and scheduled an appointment for a full physical and blood work the following week. Everyone I encountered was friendly and professional, and I'm amazed at how quick/easy it was to arrange further tests.

  • Nice "walk-in clinic" doctor
    Reviewed on November 11th, 2015  •  Verified patient
    My first time using this service. It seemed well organised and efficient. My visit was for a specific issue, not a "walk-in" issue. I was desperate to get treated and didn't want to wait for 3 weeks for my regular doctor. After hearing about funding cuts, etc., and having the physician's assistant suggest something that I knew would not address my medical concerns, I quickly lost faith in the clinic for anything else but "walk-in" clinic issues. I will return to my regular doctor and deal with the wait time.

    Had an appointment at 6pm. Showed up 10 minutes early as it was my first visit and I know new patients sometimes need more time to set up. I was waiting for the doctor for over a half hour. After 6:30 I gave up and told them I was leaving. My appointment was a 15 minute initial appointment and they had me waiting over 30 minutes without any explanation. Not a place I'd return to.

  • Unable to see him.
    Reviewed on October 22nd, 2015  •  Verified patient
    So it seems like a quick one stop shop type of clinic, its very small, but it is in the heart of Downtown. That being sad, its clean and new. Very nice welcome. Then the receptionist sat me in my clinic room and I was there for 15 mins before i was wondering what was going on. I am always respectful of time in a Doctors place because they have such a challenging job but I was there for around 30 mins with no communication of what was going on. I had to leave which was a shame, as I walked out there were a few people all waiting in the rooms sat on there phones. I did get an explanation from the receptionist but I don't think I'll be heading back there. Im sure the Doctors great from all the reviews so far, I did not get to see him though.

    I got treated like a drug addict while asking for a prescription refill. I assume because I have a lot of tattoos. My prescription requires me to see a psychiatrist for an evaluation before I get it and he basically refused to even refer me to do that. Also, he wouldn't even start a conversation about me wanting to be referred to a dermatologist saying he wouldn't do that. Waste of time. Trying to find a family doctor is hard.

I have to admit that the presentation of Doctor Hussain and that of his office and staff was a good experience. He seemed to be a good listener, patient and well mannered. He did not seem impatient nor rushed and that is the quality I appreciate in physicians who are attending to the needs of patients or potential patients. It makes one feel comfortable and welcomed.

He is very attentive and made sure your concerns are addressed and that what steps had to be done were taken asap.
