Patient Comments (2)
in Cary, NC |
Dr. Raines is a good therapist during sessions but habitually fails to call in prescriptions, sometimes for many days, leaving patients that depend on these replacement medications in a very bad position. He ignores repeated phone calls, text messages and has failed to show up for scheduled appmnts many times with no notice. This behavior threatens the sobriety of patients that depend on him to stay sober. He should stop seeing addicted patients until he can keep his promises. BE WARNED!

Dr. Raines is a great doctor one-on-one. But be ware that you may not be able to get in touch with him or get your meds refilled several times a year. Twice in the past year, he has failed to show up for my appointments. The door to the practice has been locked. It is extremely difficult to get meds refilled at times, which is extremely problematic for psychiatric meds. I have been seeing Dr. Raines for over a decade and this has been an occasional problem but it has gotten much worse.
