Mahveen Hussain

Medical Director
AseraCare Hospice Stockton, CA

Mahveen Hussain, M.D. has been a medical director with AseraCare for three years. She is responsible for leading and directing AseraCare’s hospice agency in Stockton, California. As medical director, she feels “honored” to be part of a team that helps people at what is probably the most difficult, yet often most meaningful time in their lives. “We are lucky to live in a society that values compassionate care for the dying,” says Dr. Hussain.

Her goal is to ensure her team is providing the highest quality of care and service to AseraCare’s patients and their families. “We should do our best to anticipate the needs of our patients and families, instead of waiting for a request, and we should always respect and understand the different ways death and dying are handled in the various cultures we serve,” she explains.

Currently, Dr. Hussain also serves as a staff physician at the San Joaquin General Hospital in French Camp, California. From 2003 through 2005 she was an associate physician in Internal Medicine at Kaiser Permanente in Sacramento, California. Before that she worked as a staff physician in Internal Medicine for the Bristol Park Medical Group in Mission Viejo, California.

Dr. Hussain is board-certified in both Hospice and Palliative Medicine and Internal Medicine. She is a member of the American Association of Hospice and Palliative Medicine. Dr. Hussain was a speaker at Kaiser Permanente’s Regional and National Diversity Conferences in 2004 and 2005; she was also selected as a peer leader for Sacramento’s Women’s Health Leadership Program during the same period. She has also been a physician volunteer with Physicians for Human Rights in Boston.

Dr. Hussain received her undergraduate degree in biochemistry at UCLA, and earned her medical degree at New York Medical College. She performed her residency in Internal Medicine at Loma Linda University Medical Center.
