excellent doctor who was concerned and took time to explain

April 25, 2017

My experience with the Provider was very good he explained the procedure and it's effects. Please note the question of the Provider seeing me in 15 minutes and I answered no was due the Provider had another emergency and was late. However his Nurse kept me informed and apologized for that. I understand things do happen beyond ones control and it was not a problem.

he was very good at explaining things

Dr. Cain was extremely attentive, and provide the first explanation of why I am experiencing the discomfort that has persisted, to some degree, for the past seven years. Simply having the explanation has completely re-framed how I feel about it. The physician who performed the procedure gave little explanation, and had little to offer when I asked post-procedure concerns.

Dr. Cain has helped me deal with a persistent pain problem related to poor closing technique utilized by a St. Vincent general surgeon while closing during a double hernia operation. I was prevented from using Dr. Cain, who successfully performed my first hernia procedure (located in a different area), by the Highmark--UPMC coverage dispute

Dr Cain was easy to talk with, answered all my question and seemed very confident which is what I like to see in a doctor that is treating me.

The doctor was very busy the day I saw him; he was already behind schedule, and I could sense that he was somewhat distracted and pressured when he examined me. The time the physician actually spent with me was perfunctory, and I was not comfortable asking all of my questions because I didn't want to hold the physician up. I followed up with written questions via an on line portal, and those were answered timely, however, I did not receive any additional follow up from the physician office regarding my follow up care. I am considering seeking a second opinion and follow up care from a different physician.
