Dr. Cain is an experienced and caring specialist that always responds to my calls to his staff. He is intuitive as well as educated in his specialty. He runs almost or close to on time for appointments. Also important, he knows and doesn't hesitate to referrer to another specialist when he knows it is in his patient's best interest. I talk a lot, so I wish that the appointments could be a bit longer. Thank you Dr. Cain for the years of care. Pamela Allison

I had some unusual pain for a week and decided it needed professional care. I was able to come in the same day I called about it. After hearing my description and performing a check, Dr Cain was able to give a diagnosis within minutes that alleviated my concerns. Well done!

I chose Dr. Cain for Mama's care 19 years ago after her bad accident. He has been following her for her various ailments and has been wonderful listening and giving advice. Now that Mama has Alzheimers and is in declining health Dr. Cain has been just as helpful as the first time we walked into his Bull Street office. I give him more than 5 stars!!
