I have no idea why this man is allowed to say the things he does. Basically he told me to suck it up...level 10 pain is all in my head. I have had 2 operations and was looking for advise before I had a third. He was belittling, talks down to women and really just disaster . My daughter and I left crying. Thank God for the Fellow that was there...he was what saved me from not totally falling apart. This is my life we were talking about and I could no longer work.

Although there might be a wait, Dr. Rainville spends the needed time to assess issues, and never rushes through questions and explanations. He is excellent at teaching and making sure that the treatment options were understood. Dr. Rainville returns calls, and is very kind in his approach.

Seeing Dr Rainville is a great experience. He listens for what is going on with his patients, and recommends treatments accordingly. His focus is on getting your body working properly by figuring out what is happening with any and all spine-related issues, Not simply focusing on dealing with people one symptom at a time. One symptom at a time, often doesn't help with spine issues, and it often can make things far worse. This is the guy to see.
He reviewed an MRI of my spine as a second opinion. Surgery had been recommended. After a thorough examination, Rainville concluded that surgery was not the answer at that time. It's been six or seven years. I'm just fine. I absolutely trust his judgment.
