I finally got the answer to a problem that had been bothering me for some time. Thank goodness He took the time to listen.
in Cameron, NC |
I was admitted into Rex hospital for kidney stones while 18 weeks pregnant. I use Blue Ridge OBGYN and Dr. Gaines came to check on my baby while I was admitted. He tried listening to her heartbeat on the Doppler and couldn't find it so he did an ultrasound and explained very rudely that if something were to be wrong with her, he couldn't do anything because she was too small so he didn't feel the need to check on her. He was rude and condescending and left the room with me crying my eyes out.

He is the only doctor that I truly trust. He has been my doctor for years and delivered my last child.

Dr. Gaines has been my gynecologist for many years. He is the kindest and most compassionate of all my doctors, including my primary doctor and other specialists. He explains everything and is very gentle. He always talks with me in his office after the examination and asks if there is anything he can do to help me. He genuinely cares about my health and well-being. I could not ask for a better doctor.

I came in as a new patient with presenting complaint of depression and physical illness during pms This man talked to me in a condescending and rude manner, ignored my concerns and put me on birth control. I expressed concern about being on another oral medication with what I was taking, and he responded with you're already on so many, what's one more? i know now that I have thyroiditis and estrogen dominance, and birth control increases breast cancer risk. Thanks for not doing your job.
