I was referred to Dr. Cain from a former patient who had suffered a botched surgery from a prior physician. Dr. Cain corrected the problem and also performed same surgery on opposite foot. I too have had two surgeries with Dr. Cain with excellent results. Does a great job of providing realistic surgical and post-surgical expectations for pain, recovery, and results. Strongly recommend...pretty conversant for a Georgia Tech grad!

I saw Dr. Cain 18 months ago to relieve pain caused by tailor's bunions. Dr. Cain did an outstanding job and since having surgery, I have no more pain. The scar has healed nicely and you can barely see it at this point. I highly recommend Dr. Cain and his staff.

Dr Thomas Cain is an excellent caring doctor. He treated me in 2003 when I fractured my left ankle & required surgery and again in 2014 when I fractured my right ankle & required surgery. He truly cares about his patients & provides excellent professional care until you are fully recovered. I highly recommend Dr Thomas Cain DPM.

Very caring Dr who actually takes the time to talk to you. Have had surgery on toes and maintenance clipping of toenails. Always professional and excellent follow up care. Would recommend to anyone.

Office staff was nice. No one in the waiting room, still waited 15minits. I had a severely ingrown toenail that was sensitive even to a bed sheet laying on it. This "doctor" took some clippers and just started digging it out. I don't recall ever being so much pain. He commented how red my face was and I said "that hurt like HELL!" A simple numbing would have been in order, but that was of no consideration to him. I quickly found another podiatrist.

Dr. Cain performed surgery to correct a bunion, 2 hammertoes and a neuroma nerve. I still have a small bunion, hammertoes stick up and will not touch the floor, and it feels like the nerve has grown back. I now have excruciating pain in my toes and my foot is still swollen almost 10 months post op. My last appointment, he really didn't listen to my complaints nor have any suggestions to help me. My foot is now in worse condition than before the surgery. I have less mobility and more pain.

Dr Cain is very Knowledgeable and explains the options for treatment. I have never felt hurried or rushed during an appointment. He uses several different modalities to numb the area being treatment and makes you very comfortable. His office is very clean and staff is friendly and competent.
