Excellent experience with Staff, Medical Assistant, and Dr. Cain, Dr. Cain was profesdional, asked pertinent questions, and thoroughly explained my situation with a descriptive chart, showing the results of my CT scan. He is scheduling several more tests, and shared several solutions depending on the results of the testing visits

Dr Cain was very informative and answered our questions so that we understood what he was explaining. He also made us feel confident in our decision for surgery.

Dr Cain is a kind and patient doctor. although I only see him for one concern. He has been very helpful with information in other concerns.
