My dad is a patient and Dr. Raines has not ran one blood test on my father. My father has been very sick for 6 months and Nothing was done now the doctors at the hospital so my father has cancer and Nothing can be done. Do test on your elderly patients before it's to late.

Review for Dr. Michael Raines, MD

Never makes me feel rushed, Takes the time to go over all aspects of care. If it matters I see him for anxiety/depression. He never just prescribed but he makes sure that nothing is happening to exacerbate the issues I am having.

If you suffer from pain. Avoid this guy like the plague. Treats you like a criminal if you ask for some pain meds.
