Dr. Gaines is a highly skilled surgeon and has excellent bedside manner. I am very pleased with the results of my daughter's Nuss procedure.

November 27, 2017

We were seen within fifteen minutes of scheduled appt because we were told to arrive a half hour early, which we did, so the total time in waiting area before being called into an exam room was fifty minutes. Dr. Gaines did most of the talking and asking my son questions, so there was not a time when she, the doctor was listening to me. There were only two very brief encounters with reception before seeing the doctor, so although I answered positively to the reception questions it would be more accurate to say the encounters were pleasant. Dr. Gaines was was professional as she spoke and questioned, aware of and up to date with my son's case and made me feel comfortable and secure with allowing her to care/operate on my son. Thank you

Wonderful team we work with here

The doctor did not initially have the right size suture scissors. The scissors were too big so she had to pull particularly hard on the stitches to cut them. This pulling caused my child pain, which she showed clearlyi. At least 2 of 4 stitches removed at that visit were removed before she switched scissors. I would really have expected the proper sicissors to be available or for the doctor to switch scissors the first time she noticed that she was pulling that hard and the child was demonstrating discomfort.

Dr. Gaines is an excellent doctor. She provided excellent communication and she listened to us which gave us confidence in her advice/medical care. She is very respectful and professional.
