Learn about Dr. Rainsford

Care Philosophy

Patients are important to me regarding their well-being physically, mentally and educationally. My task is to educate regarding a healthy being, to cure or modify illnesses and to raise awareness about the patient's future life and education and contributions back to society. I make referrals where indicated for complete care.

I am available and/or have coverage by licensed and experienced colleagues.

Patients are invited to call as needed and will be advised via phone or encouraged to make an appointment for issues that require medical evaluation en face.

She has been my Dr since I was about 7 and I'm well into my mid 30s Dr rainsford is the best, she's determined to keep her patients out of the hospital, she's up front in telling you what you need to hear and not what you want to hear especially when you don't do as she says She is the main reason why I am doing well to this day, she helped my mom get me through my illness. The woman is a blessing from god and I just want to say I appreciate her for what she's done for me and the community
