Dr Peter Hines is one of a kind. Concerned, caring, interested, open to med discussions, Willing To Work With Family And Assisted Living Facility, If Every Doc Was Like Dr Hines, The World Would Be Filled With Happier, Better Informed And Probably Healthier People. Dr Hines and His Staff, Esp Lori, Go Above And Beyond In Every Way. My Father saw Dr Hines for more than 10 years before his passing from heart attack in June. Mother has seen him for 4 years. We could not be more pleased.
