Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Gaines "At Optim Orthopedics, we know you're not yourself when even just one part of you is hurt. Because in orthopedics, everything is connected: bones, joints, ligaments, and cartilage. We're connected too. Our doctors cover every bone in the body and we work together as a team for our patients. We call our approach - Combined Strength, and we use it to get you back to you."

My experience with Dr. Gaines was very good. He saw me timely, was friendly, really listened to my reasons for making an appointment, asked pertinent questions, was thorough in examination and explanation, and made it easy for me to follow-up with him if necessary. I did not feel rushed while I talked with him. I felt comfortable with his explanation and diagnosis of my problem. I had seen him previously for another problem and that is why I returned to him with my current concern.

Dr. Gaines is wonderful. He is extremely personable and well informed. He spends as much time as you want explaining everything and talking over your patient care with patients. His assistant Elaina is also great. She is available and helpful with anything I needed at all hours. The reception staff and the therapy staff are also extremely helpful and personable. Always making you feel welcome like family. I would definitely recommend Dr. Gaines and his staff!

Dr. Gaines has been seeing me for almost a year. He has the best bed side manners and explains everything to you. I'm so blessed to have him as my doctor and would recommend him to anyone that needs orthopedic care!

I have nothing but great things to say about Dr. Gaines and his staff from the front office to his assistant Elaina, to the surgical staff in Reidsville, to the therapist, Becky, Gary and Ken. I came in with a shoulder issue and we discussed the options. Surgery was done and now I am in therapy(phase 3). He is a true professional, bed side manner is what your looking for. Cares a great deal about his patients. His staff are just as great and truly care about your well being.
Thank you for taking the time to send a review. Feedback is always valued!

Dr Gaines made us feel comfortable with the surgery needed, performed it expertly and followed up with us regularly afterwards. He was genuinely concerned when other health issues arose and has worked with our other doctors to be sure full recovery is achieved.
