What People Say About Dr. Robert Gaines Jr, MD
Reply
I have had so many doctors in my lifetime. He is by far the best there will ever be in my opinion. He genuinely cares about his patients and their families, not just in the medical area but personal too. There will never be a doctor that cares as much as he does.

April 29 1979 I was in a plane crash that caused me to have multiple injuries including a compression fracture of 6 vertebrae which caused a lot of spinal cord damage with resultant loss of bodily functions. Dr Gaines did what he could to repair the damage and had to install four Harrington rods to hold my spine in place until it healed. Others told me that I would never walk again. Dr. Gaines always had a positive attitude and I do walk and have little pain from the back injury.
