Patient Comments (6)
in Ormond Beach, FL |
Dr. Gaines is an amazing doctor/surgeon. He repaired my 80% torn rotator cuff. The process was painful after the surgery. I did go to PT at the Mason Ave location. I have attended 36 visits to the PT office and assisted in my recover by a Mr. Keith Short. Without the diligence of Mr. Short and his drive to help me heal successfully I would not be where I am at this point in my recovery. Working with Mr. Short and doing home exercises as prescribed did it. I am near as good as new. Thanks Staff!!

Couldn't get an appt set until ten days after injury and that was after I waited a whole day for office to call me back because they had to get approval from Dr. Gaines. Would not recommend this orthopedic clinic for treatment.
in Edgewater, FL |
He was very soft spoken and kind with my son. Good bedside manners. Felt very confident with his knowledge and expertise!
in Daytona Beach, FL |
Liked Dr. Gaines very much. Knowledgeable and pleasant. I would give him 5 stars. However, the wait times are ridiculous. Waited over 50 mins only to be told there were still three people in front of me. Office staff is not very professional.
in New Smyrna Beach, FL |
I had rotator cuff surgery with Dr. Gaines 7 years ago so when I had a bicycle accident on 1/7 that sent me to the emergency room with a severely separated shoulder, my wife immediately called his office for an appointment even before I was discharged from the ER to see the doctor and again twice more that day. We never got a return call and when we finally called back late on the 8th we were told he could see me on 1/19 despite the fact that this was an emergency and I was a returning patient.
