From check-in to check-out, I was treated with kindness and concern. Dr. Gaines addresses my shoulder injury with a thorough explanation and explanation of short and long term care on my part to function with minimum of problems in the future. Very pleased with his staff. Will highly recommend Dr. Gaines.

Dr. Gaines has been amazing throughout this journey. Total knee replacement has been the best thing for me. Dr Gaines tried everything prior to knee replacement to get me relief from the pain and while some things helped temporarily, it was apparent that this was inevitable. He has been there with me every step answering questions and reassuring me things would be better. And they are. Shout out to Elana and Lauren Y’all have been great. Answering my emails through the portal and talking with me to assist with my needs. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE.

Dr. Gaines is a very caring doctor and did a great job on my knee replacement. I will be having my other knee done in the next few months and am certain that it will go as well as the first.
