Dr. Hines is a great guy and a wonderful nephrologist. He's brilliant, kind, thorough, and will always go the extra mile for me on every visit. He has an excellent staff that seems to be custom made for him. I'm a complicated patient, but he always meets every challenge I have. I'm lucky to have him as my nephrologist.
