I had an exceptional experience with Professor Dr Syed Husain. I had a chronic lung condition causing me to have breathing difficulties, shortness of breath, coughing and wheezing for over 4 months. Dr Husain, through his professionalism, skills, experience and care performed the required tests and was able to navigate the exact source of the problem, something which other lung professionals were not able to do. He then put me on the right treatment plan and within one weak, 95% or my symptoms had reduced. I am still receiving treatment from Dr Husain, and am extremely greatful that he was able to put me on the road to recovery in a very short period of time. Not only this, he demonstrates passion, compassion and a real care and concern for his patients. I highly recommend him for any of your pulmonary needs. Thank you again Dr Husain

I have nothing but praise for Dr Syed's professional manner, knowledge and practical medical guidance. As a patient of his for the last 6 months, his expert knowledge has been shared clearly, without jargon and always in a way to make me feel less concerned than others have achieved in the past. He takes time to listen and understand any issues, without rushing ar any time, even when obviously busy. A consumate professional.
