    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
