Dr. Gaines was extremely knowledgeable, professional and caring.
We were able to get in very quickly due to a cancellation. We were seen earlier than his scheduled appointment time. Both Dr. Gaines and the RN were very helpful and interacted with my son. Dr. Gaines explained things very clearly and took time to ensure we felt comfortable with the plan. It was also very helpful having the phone line and email address to send questions to as we move forward with our sons care.
Nothing bad to report. Very professional, yet friendly and kind.
This was the first time seeing a new dr which was Dr Gaines since our previous doctor had left the hospital last year. Dr Gaines was very nice and informative on my sons continuing care at the hospital. Was a pleasant appointment and my son was comfortable with her.
So comfortable with her. Very knowledgeable and trustworthy.
Dr. Gaines is one of the most caring compassionate people I have ever met. Her along with Carol May from Palliative Care have worked tirelessly to assure that my daughter has the best quality of life. I honestly do not know where our family would be without either of them. They are very respectful of all of our decisions.
Dr. Gaines was amazing! She took excellent care of our daughter, provided us with the information we needed/asked. she is by far my favorite physician!
Dr. Gaines has saved my daughter's life on more than one occasion. I feel that she treats my daughter as if she were her own child-that is definitely a quality you want in a surgeon. She is very respectful towards our daughter and my husband and I. She truly listens when we talk and respects our opinion. It was a stroke of fate that she was the surgeon on call that day my daughter was a direct admit to the PICU. She was brought into our lives for a reason and we thank God every day for the gift of Dr. Gaines!
great doctor, highly recommend Dr. Gaines and her staff.
all of our experiences have been great and up to all my expectations
Dr. Gaines was amazing. She took time to listen to all of our concerns and answer all of our questions. She provided a very clear plan of treatment for our son, and very clearly explained each step.
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. Gaines. She has saved my daughter's life on more than one occasion. She is caring and compassionate. She always listens to my concerns and we address them together. I thank God every night that she was the surgeon on duty that dreadful day when my daughter got sick, and every day thereafter that Dr. Gaines has been a constant support. She treats us like family and when your child is as sick as mine you definitely want someone who will treat them as if they are your own.
very kind, spoke to my son and was attentive and not rushed
The staff was great and were seen within 5 minutes of being there they answered all our questions I would use this doctor again and I will let people know about her
Dr Gains is excellent!!! Made us feel realcomfortable
We had a good consult with Dr. Gaines for our daughter's upcoming Nuss procedure surgery.
time waiting for the dr was longer than the dr was actually in the room
