the doctor was very rude and told me that I don't need to wear a splint that I just need to wear a tennis shoe and walk on my foot. I was told that my foot is not broke. I can't put no weight on it and can't even wear a shoe. He also said if I was a cat I lost one of my lifes. Also the radiologist wouldn't even help.me get on the exam table. They are rude as well. I really don't want to use this doctor again.

Dr. Gaines took time to explain my test results, answer my questions and discuss health in the context of life style rather than medication. I left feeling encouraged, affirmed and motivated. Dr Gaines is practices state of the art medicine like a trusted family doctor.

After the accident happened in workplace, my face was swelling and the provider asked me to go back to work without restriction. Nobody can work with face swelling without restriction. That is not fair.

Dr Gaines has been exemplary in taking care of my workers compensation case and care. His concern for all aspects has meant so much. While very professional he also gave a personal touch that made the difference between stopping or continuing my treatment plan.

The Doctor was friendly, caring and seemed genuinely concerned about me the injury and how to heal the injury. I think the Doctor was professional and had the right attitude. I would definitely recommend him and his office in the future.

I was not being considered for the care or the treatment of my injury at all nor was I allowed to explaine to the provider what other concerns I had or what other treatments I was under going that interfered with treatment for my illnes. He just wanted to keep me from losing time from work but upping my pills and telling me to do exercises that I told him I was already doing if he would just listen and let me finish explaining before cutting me off or ignoring what I said.
