Dr. Cain exceeded my expectations at my visit for my gallbladder. He came prepared with a drawing and went over every detail of the surgery and made me feel very comfortable!

Dr. Cain and his staff are wonderful.

This was my first introduction to Dr. Cain. He was professional and appropriate. He does not seem warm and huggy, but still good bedside manner. He explained my potential surgery very well using a diagram. He answered all of my questions. He included my daughters in the convo also. I gained a bit of trust from this initial meeting.
