Dr. Osama A Hussein has the following 1 specialty
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

My 3 month old son was always sick and I could never get past office staff to a nurse or doctor. They would always tell me to "call back if things got worse." even if I called to say he was dehydrated and wheezing. He was hospitalized at 3 months old. After this, I made a call to a few friends for recommendations for a new pediatrician. Most recommended Dr. Hussein, so I made an appointment with him for a meet and greet. That morning I took my son to his current pediatrician and was sent on our way saying to just keep giving him liquids and tylenol and he was fine. We left that appointment for our meet and greet with Dr. Hussein. He walked in and started to give his greeting, and stopped. He asked if it would be okay if he listened to his breathing. I agreed. He listened to him and asked if I was in agreement and comfortable with him treating my child that he would like to have his staff get insurance authorization to treat my son today. If he were not to receive neb treatments and a dose of steroids he would recommend that he go to the ER. He told me his lungs were full. I of course agreed to treatment and my son has seen him from 3 months of age until now, 8 years. I now have a 1 yo daughter and she also sees Dr. Hussein. I cannot begin to explain how thorough and caring this doctor is. He is a true caregiver. He takes his time, and makes sure that you as a parent understand what he is saying, and how to be an advocate for your child and their health. If you are looking for a pediatrician that is fully dedicated to your child's health and well being, then Dr. Hussein is that person. His office staff are also amazing, and wait times are minimal. He is now located in a private practice across from the hospital in Dover, and is no longer at Dr. Bacchus office.
