I wanted to have Dr. Husain address my swallowing issue and problem with my parotid gland, both of which issues she has addressed before. Instead, I was referred to two other specialists, each of which I need another appointment.

My doctor is amazing. We talked prior to my exam regarding my fear of the device she utilized. She told me what to expect and how to relax. She talked me through the entire procedure and made me feel so very comfortable. I had no discomfort throughout the the exam. I appreciate my doctors patience with me.
