  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Dr. Hussain has excellent bedside manner, and is very good with children. (Even three year olds who don't like getting their ears looked at.) Very good post-appointment care, and Dr. Hussain responds to emails/telephone calls. Very helpful for parents of pediatric patients.

Mother

We have had to see many different Dr.'s for our son and by accident came across meeting Dr. Hussain. I was skeptical at first because of so many bad experiences with pediatric epilepsy specialists. Dr. Hussain, from the minute I met him treated us like we should have been all along...like we were important. He asked me what I was looking to accomplish and get out of UCLA for our son. No one ever asked us what we expected to accomplish. It has only been a few months that we have been dealing with him. However he returns all e-mails and will call you if needed. He spends a great deal of time talking with you if needed and again makes you feel very important to him. We are very lucky to have come across him and look forward to working with him to help find relief for our son. In addition, Dr. Hussain works with a wonderful, helpful, kind and compassionate team with the ketogenic diet program at UCLA. You really can't be in better hands.
