Qualifications and Experience
My mission is to form strong doctor-patient relationships. MY strength comes from being curious and real about your needs.
PLease NOTE: BLOOD WORK IS NOT DONE ON SITE FOR PHYSICALS! QUEST IS ONE BLOCK AWAY!
Because I am single practitioner, certain exams are referred out to specialists. For example, there are no female exams performed at my facility. Complex skin concerns are sent immediately to dermatology. Also, I do not work with patients while they are pregnant. Also, I do not consider myself an Urgent care facility.
When you meet me at your first and subsequent visits, most of the time, I will be the first one you will see greeting you at the door! I can be very relaxed in my appearance and approach, but very intense and focused to help. I love to see my patients laugh. At times there will be unforeseeable professional emergency calls. I appreciate your patience. At the heart of my approach, I am comprehensive in my thinking through your problem.
NOTE: I am not an URGENT care facility. Ex: Eye problems, blurred vision, extreme headaches, dizzyness, chest pain, extreme shortness of breath.
I am keenly aware of when a person needs to see a specialist, on the SAME DAY therefore, so you might only have a short visit. Also, I will touch upon many different aspects of your life, moving from topic to topic. We might not get through all of your concerns in one visit, but I am committed to exploring all of them.
Bottom line, my office does not look like what you might expect.
The waiting room has been designed to assure comfort and healing. Simply put, it has been uniquely crafted to help you begin your exploration and journey into healing. Be prepared to work with me in successfully approaching your healthcare needs.
Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Bain is absolutely wonderful. I Don't know what I would do without him
Very on key in trying to get to know patient and symptoms and relating it back to reason for visit. Would definitely come back for future issues.
Dr. Bain was easy to schedule, and diagnosed my sinus infection effectively and well. Already feeling better!
He made me feel at ease the entire time. Very funny, and also very thorough.
Always helpful. Thank you again.
I think by far the most unconventional doctor I've ever visited, but that is precisely what I was looking for. It's about tome doctors were more "human" and Dr Bain by far meets those requirements. Very welcoming, wanted to know who I was beyond a medical history, and made me feel like care was his primary vocation.
I found Dr. Bain to be very thoughtful! This was my first visit and I will definitely be back.
Very energetic.... there was clearly a lot going on in his head and I don't not feel like there was much attention paid to me. Very overwhelming, felt like we had three conversations going on at all times.
If youre looking to find the real problem of your illness, Dr.Bain is the doctor for you! Wonderful bedside manor. Definitely my doctor from now on.
Dr. Bain is professional and personal. I’ve been looking for a reliable doctor I could connect with and am glad I’ve found him.
Leaves no stone unturned in an effort to get you well, looking for CAUSE vs just covering up what one's body is trying to make known through symptoms one is experiencing. He is one of a kind & unique.
Dr. Bain is thorough in his exams and questions, he does talk a lot but I found that this is just his way of getting all the answers that ne needs. Some people may find it a distraction, but personally I didn't. Overall, he seemed to be a good doctor and I felt comfortable with him during my first visit.
Dr. Bain is a very nice and personable Doctor. He seems to want a genuine patient-doctor relationship. I recommend him for older patients or people who don't care much about efficiency. I do not recommend Dr. Bain if you are looking for the most efficient and time friendly care. One issue should not take several hours and multiple visits. I decided to choose a different doctor, who filled both of my prescriptions in a 30-minute visit. No follow up visits required, no running to another office for blood work, etc.
Enjoyed the time together
Great as always
Dr. Bain is a professional in all ways. His genuine and sincere regard for his patients is a gift to all who have the opportunity to meet with him.
Dr. Bain is very caring and brilliant. He uses homeopathy the augment current treatments that were not working for me. I see a big improvement each time I see him. He understands internal medicine and is very skilled at implementing homeopathy into the mix. I highly recommend Dr. Bain.
I don't know what I would do without him
Dr. Bain was very welcoming and attentive. Easy to talk to and friendly. Would recommend!
Another great visit! Great person and great doctor!
I was beyond impressed with y experience. Dr. Bain is amazing. His bedside manner is superb. He is extremely thorough -in fact he treats the person as a whole -mind body and soul
Dr. Bain is insightful and takes the time to get to know his patients and their particular needs. It's been almost a year since I started seeing him and I can sincerely say that he's a great doctor!!!
The Dr spent extra time with me .
We are really making progress! I'm so excited! I've been to a half didentify of doctors and specialists with no luck, but Dr. Bain listened and really got in tune with me. I know I'm on the right path to healthy!
So great, he always has me feeling a 180 better then before! Honestly body, mind, and soul this guy is AMAZING!!!!
My appointment was great as usual. Dr. Bain is wonderful. I highly recommend him.
It was different. He clearly is knowledgeable but the visit didn't feel like he followed a standard protocol. Plus, the exam room was dated and felt like a converted garage. He is a nice and knowledgeable man but a little too unorthodox for my expectations.
He is very compassionate and detail oriented in his approach. My concerns are always addressed and I trust him completely as my doctor.
He took time to explain my health concerns.
Dr. Bain is the sort of genuine individual I'd be glad to know in any walk of life. He often "thinks out loud," so I get some education along with treatment. Would I recommend him? I already do.
I think my medical care is a work in progress sometimes, and we made more progress finding what made changes for the better.
Dr. Bain has been my doctor for the past 6 years. He is knowledgeable, open, patient, and kind. He truly cares about his patients, treats each patient as a whole person, understanding that an individual's emotional well being contributes just as much to their overall health as diet and exercise. Dr. Bain has been a true partner on my journey to wellness. It has been a collaborative relationship where I always feel listened to, heard and understood. Time and again, he has gone above and beyond in figuring out the root of the problem, fully invested in finding the best course of treatment that would work for me.
I have been seeing Dr. Bain for about three years now and I can honestly say that I would be lost with him. He is the best doctor. I know I can trust him completely and he is always going to do his best top take care of me. I am so thankful for finding Dr. Bain!!!!
I have been seeing Dr. Bain for about three years now and I can honestly say that I would be lost with him. He is the best doctor. I know I can trust him completely and he is always going to do his best top take care of me. I am so thankful for finding Dr. Bain!!!!
Appreciate that he's not just trying to treat my symptoms but also trying to find the cause of them and help with that.
He is very thorough. Sometimes he asks seemingly unrelated questions, but I've learned to trust him, because he gets results and connects it all together! He cares. That's awesome and rare! You're in good hands.
I previously saw internists that were part of a practice affiliated with a large university/hospital medical group. When I didn't present as textbook in symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment, I left feeling worse off; as if I was a medical failure in some way. Dr. Bain has been my primary care physician for 10 years. He always incorporates traditional, complementary, and intuitive medicine and thought into my care. When he refers me to specialists, he continues to tirelessly advocate for me. He truly wants to be in the loop with regard to my care and treatment. His personality is at all times energetic and sensitive and curious and shy and quirky and honest. He is a human being that does not hide behind a degree and a white lab coat. He promptly comes out to acknowledge my arrival at his office, and if I have to wait on him, I know it is because he is caring for someone else as much as he cares about me. It is also a reciprocal doctor-patient relationship; when I was running very late for the last appointment on a Friday evening, Dr. Bain waited and still devoted to me the same time and energy as always. Get to know Dr. Bain and let him get to know you. I have no regrets trusting him as a partner in caring for my health and wellbeing.
The worst experience I've ever had. Worried more about co-pay and deductible than my Illness. Was distracted by his phone due to his 'policy' of answering patients and doctors calls 24/7. Does not live in the present and waste his patients time. Take your money and time elsewhere.
Great approach to diagnosis.
Amazing, he's always so caring and takes his time to give me the best health care!!!
Dr.Bain gives patients genuine care and attention. He maintains a very friendly atmosphere during the visit and his diagnosis is spot on. I've been going to Dr.Bain ever since I moved to Chicago more than 6 years ago and I never had seconds thoughts!
I'm one of Dr. Bain's newest patients and I've been utilizing his services for almost a month. Dr. Bain is about education and manageability. I developed pain and swelling on the left side of my body for a month. Once Dr. Bain learned what caused the pain and swelling, he had me use a breathing technique that diminished the pain by 60% . I do have a follow-up appointment and I do realize it will take time before I have total usage of my left hand and arm however, I'm extremely pleased with Dr. Bains bedside manners and his level of knowledge and care
I have been a client of Dr Bain for almost 10 years and he has always done a great job
Dr. Bain had a very quirky, but refreshing bedside manner. He was very engaged, which I loved! Straight to the point but not curt. He new my name when I walked in the door and being a new patient, I didn't know what to expect but his level of integrity and accountability was there up front. I look forward to building a great Dr. Patient relationship.
Dr bain is A doctor that uses acupuncture , which helped my back .
Great doctor. Very knowledgeable. Good person.
My visit to Dr. Bain's office was very efficient and easy. He runs a good operation, and I highly recommend him.
Love seeing Dr. Bain, he calls you directly and you are able to reach him directly, which is a huge deal to me! He also makes sure to dot all the i's and crosses all the t's before you are out the door and knows great speacialists!
Very professional, fast, and courteous. All my questions answered
Dr. Bain listens to his patients and always tries come up with the best solution. He treats the cause and not the symptom.
Dr. Bain has been my physician for 25 years. He works with you and values your participation in your treatment.
Dr. Bain is punctual and he cares about your wellbeing.
Dr. Bain show a level of care for his patients that I have not seen before in my long history with doctors. I highly recommend him! Great guy!
He's great, getting down to all my root problems and feeling so much better!!!! He's the reason my thyroids all in check now. I owe this guy my LIFE
Went in for physical. Dr Bain answered my questions.
I I came in with pain and left feeling MUCH BETTER. Dr Bain listened to what I said .
Felt rushed. He is not very professional.
Always a pleasure.
Wonderful, caring doctor.
Setting the first appointment was very efficient, thanks to Dr. Bain's website and ZocDoc. Didn't wait long when I arrived for the appointment. I can see some people who may think Dr. Bain is a bit quirky: he speaks fast, on multiple subject matters at the same time, checked his phone and had to follow up on another patient matter while I was in the appointment, etc. None of these bothered me. We had a good appointment and all my concerns were addressed.
I wish I would have found Dr. Bain years ago. Unlike my previous healthcare providers, he asks questions and takes the time to actually listen to my responses. Dr. Bain is genuinely concerned with my well-being and is thoughtful in his diagnosis.
He really takes the time to listen to why your there.Instead of prescribing a med,and sending u on your way. He's really concerened about the you,the patient. Great Man!Great doctor!
Dr. Bain has been a super quirky, funny godsend! For years I've been dealing with mysterious symptoms with no answers. Doctors usually act annoyed, treat me like a hypochondriac, tell me I'm fine, or have focused on one symptom instead of the bigger problem. I got used to downplaying my symptoms. I came in expecting to just check "annual physical" off my list and casually bring up a couple of the problems I'd been having as "no big deal" just to see if he had any ideas and then expected to be rushed out the door like many past experiences. Nope! Dr. Bain took his time, heard me out, got me tests, tested theories and was actually committed to doing a comprehensive investigation to find out what was wrong.
He as very thorough and works to find the underlying issues.
Dr. Bain partners with you to help you understand every aspect of your condition and treatment. He has been my physician for 25 years and I will never leave.
Dr. Bain is fantastic! He really listens and thinks outside the box. He is dedicated to healing the health problem in the best way for each patient. Everyone is unique. He is kind, patient, compassionate and extremely knowledgeable. I recommend him highly!
Excellent. Really cares and takes the time to look at the whole picture. I never feel rushed and always feel comfortable talking about anything. Dr. Bain is TRULY one of a kind.
Great visit -- fighting an upper resp. infection and Dr. Bain was able to make a quick diagnosis and treatment plan.
Dr Bain checked my vitals talked to me to see what was best for sore back and gave me acupuncture and my back feels MUCH Better !
Really listens to your concerns. Makes a note of issues that may require an additional visit. His office is within range of a few PokeStops so that's a pretty great bonus.
Dr. Bain does a great job of exploring multiple possible diagnoses, which I think is a great thing. He asked a lot of questions to try to get a complete picture of what was happening to me. I will definitely see Dr. Bain again in the future!
He goes above and beyond to figure out the problem and find a solution.
Dr Bain really cares about my ailments, and I wasn't treated like a number.
Dr. Bain is always extremely thorough and asks a lot of questions to ensure he is getting a holistic view of all symptoms/issues to put the pieces of the puzzle together to find out how to proceed with an action plan. He also will answer any questions I may have so I can gain a better understanding of why he wants to investigate and do specific tests and what those results mean. He does so in a kind, humorous manner which makes going to the doctor a lot more pleasant too!
Very bizarre experience. Appointment itself lasted 5 minutes before he told me to find someone more qualified. Only redeeming quality was the interpretive dance video playing while I waited. Overall, very weird and I had to go elsewhere to get treated. The exam room was also really dirty.
Dr. Bain employs an often found, unconventional method by partnering with you to be part of your medical team and fully listening to your concerns. He is open to all approaches of treatment after thorough analysis, research and discussion. He takes the time to listen and not just tick a box. Dr. Bain is not a typical white coat (and doesn't even wear one) and often shows a relaxed demeanor which may be unfamiliar to most, but I find quite settling.
Dr Bain saw me right away. I was in a LOT OF PAIN He did acupuncture on my back . I was able to walk without strong pain . I was able to resume normal activities the next day .
It is evident that Dr. Bain cares about his patients. He is more engaged in his role as physician than any of my previous doctors and spends the time to get to know the person instead of treating them as just another number to be processed and billed. I highly recommend Dr. Bain.
Dr. Bain is absolutely wonderful. I am so grateful to have found him
I have been seeing Dr Bain for approximately 2 years. He always makes sure he has enough time to address all of my questions. He is very thorough and has a great network of specialists should an issue come up that requires one. He is always trying to get to the cause of the problem, and does not just treat the symptoms. He is a great listener when other doctors were not.
I wish I would have found Dr. Bain about 5 years sooner! Truly a kind and compassionate doctor, which is rare these days. He actually asks questions and LISTENS to your answers in order to get to the root cause of your symptoms rather than whipping out a prescription pad to 'treat' them and sending you on your way. I can actually see his 'aha!' moments during our discussions. Very grateful for his insight and support in my journey back to optimum health!
Dr Bain is very caring and takes time 2 listen to your concerns.
Doctor Bain crossed several ethical lines during, and after, the appointment that really made me feel very uncomfortable. Additionally, he did not listen and his inability to follow a conversation, opting to jump from one to the other, threw me for a loop and was disorienting and therefore I completely forgot to talk to him about the issues I intended to.
Dr. Bain is someone who listens to his patients and based on their symptoms, navigates the best path to fixing the problem. He is very knowledgeable and makes you feel at ease. I've been under Dr. Bain's care for over 6 years and would definitely recommend him to others. He has a wonderful sense of humor and truly cares for those he treats. Any time I leave his office, I feel prepared and focused on how to remedy my issue.
Dr Bain was really nice and really wanted to know about my ailments so he could treat me right. He was really concerned about my well being. He's really a down to earth person. I will definitely recommend him to my friends and family.
He's a little eccentric but he brings a diverse set of views and definitely works to find the root of a problem, but just treat the symptoms.
Been seeing him for over 20 years. He will be my doc until I die. ??
This guy rules
My visit with Dr. Bain was great! He is a very attentive Doctor and I appreciate that. There are Doctors that make you wait, then rush through your appointment to get to the next patient, but not Dr. Bain. He takes the time to listen to what you have to say and therefore his diagnosis and the treatment for it is always right. I was referred to him by a co-worker years ago and I'm so grateful to her. I have since referred my daughter to him and she shares my opinion of him as well. Thanks Dr. Bain!! Joyce and Maria T
Dr. Bain was inquisitive, listened well, and was interested in discussing the issues I had.
Excellent rapport with Dr. Bain. He listens first and then diagnoses.
Dr Bain is a gem. I've been seeing him for over 10 years and he really gets me. He listens to everything you have to say, nothing is too small or trite, and he thinks outside the box.
Dr BAIN is very comprehensive.
He always makes me smile. And has literally figured out a problem I have been dealing with for some time now that took me years, doctors, and a lot of money with no answers. I would recommend to everyone!
Dr. Bain took the time to consult with me for far longer than any other doctor I have visited to get a holistic idea of what was going on with my problems.
Dr Bain is thorough and sweet and on top of everything. He has been a lifesaver with my high blood pressure and other issues. I am so glad I found him.
I was looking for an annual physical/checkup. A few examples of why I won't see this doctor again: he asked me my height and weight instead of taking measurements for a physical, when I mentioned I had back pains and thought about going to a chiropractor he asked me if I knew what an osteopathic doctor was and then continued to lecture me about how I should read about osteopaths, and he did not explain how he would help fix my back pains-only that he could do it. Before I had even gotten there, I filled out the office paperwork online, but in the office he had additional paperwork I needed to fill out that he hadn't included in the online forms and asked me everything I had already put on the form again while he typed it out durning our appointment. Not the doctor for me.
Dr Bain is a good listener. He takes the time to understand what is going on.
Dr. Bain is very professional and good listener. He listened to my concerns and answered all my questions.
- knowledgeable professional, takes good care about his patients
as usual he helped me very much. He is creative and intelligent in his approach and listens very carefully to you.
Listened and attentive.
Dr. Alan Bain is extremely knowledgeable and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is serious about taking charge of their health. I love that he actually explores all avenues to find the root and cause of the underlying problem rather than just prescribing 10 medicines to hide the symptoms just like many doctors nowadays do!
He took care of everything I needed and I was in and out feeling better in no time. Really great experience I would recommend him to anyone!!!!
Very eccentric, but I'm looking for something that isn't a doc in the box. This was it.
Very thankful to meet a doctor who is very knowledgeable, quickly develops a relationship to fully understand the patient, and is on a mission to help the patient!
He really took care of me and all my concerns, I love how he thinks outside of the box and goes above and beyond another other doctor I have had. He really focuses on fixing you from the inside out in the healthiest and/or holistic way possible.
Very quirky but very interested in my symptoms and my health. Took time to get to know me and what makes me tick. Really enjoyed it!
I like Dr. Bain, I feel comfortable with him. He tell you the medical and alternative method for different illness.
Great experience. Dr. Bain really took his time getting to know me and my history. He was definitely worth the little wait before my appointment. I did not feel rushed at all and he made me feel very comfortable in his office. Very relaxed, yet professional. I am confident that we are on the right path to finding an answer. Highly recommend!
This doctor really like to get a good background of what you are about from mental health to life style so he can accurately treat you. He looks at all the elements and the big picture to tackle what your issue is, I'm just going to say now that's it's an all around different experience then going to any other doctor, but just what I needed. And he's totally my main PCP now!!! The waiting room is super chill and comfortable. It's modern and intimate in a cool pet down town, not like the usually stressful layout that you deal with. Also he totally works with you and cares about your pockets! Bain's a great guy
Great guy different then any other doctor. He really takes the time and cares for and about you
Dr. Bain is unlike other doctors I have seen in the past. He is charmingly unconventional and excellent at what he does. I recommend him to anyone looking for a great doctor.
Excellent! He is able to evaluate and recommend options. Listens to your concerns and willing to look at options beyond traditional treatment.
Very intelligent, understanding and open-minded doc. Very thorough. I really appreciated his genuineness.
He really took the time to ensure i understood the results of my blood work.
Guy is a bit quirky and might take some getting used to but really genuinely cares about his patients.
Been his patient for over twenty years. Love him and his caring nature. He takes very good care of his patients.
He takes time to explain things and is very personable. He actually probes and try to figure/fix the issue.
he had done his homework.
This was a followup visit for me. Dr. Bain took me in right away, I did not have to wait at all. Very dedicated doctor. Does a lot of research to insure he provides the best medicine to the patients.
He is considerate, empathetic and really listens.
Very kind, gets to the root of the cause, very clam and inviting office
Dr. Bain is an exceptional doctor because you can tell he truly cares about his patients and their well-being even when you're not there. He is holistic in his approach and talks through everything from medication to lifestyle changes and mindfulness when determining a treatment plan. He is a fun, dedicated man and will hopefully be my doctor for a long time to come. The only thing to be wary of is that your appointment may not start exactly on time, depending on the Dr.'s schedule, but rest assured that any wait is more than worth it.
Dr. Bain didn't really do anything for my visit. I wanted a routine physical, and instead of that, he asked me most of the questions he was supposed to fill out: Height, weight, ect. There was no physical, and for blood pressure, he used a wrist monitor from Walgreens. Definitely not going back.
Great visit as always
Dr.Bain was just what I was looking for. A doctor that takes a holistic approach to medicine and gets to know you.
Great doctor. Really!
Dr. Bain is awesome. He really cares about the well being of his patients and takes the necessary time to determine what the illness is and how it should be treated instead of rushing through your appointment.. I was referred to him years ago by a co-worker and I am extremely glad that she did. If you are looking for a Primary Care Physician, Dr. Bain is the one.
He is a gentle and caring person and gave thoughtful advice .
Great Doc, maybe the best in Chicago. Beside manner, experience, and humility all add up here.
Great Doctor, easily one of the best. Seriously.
Short and simple Dr. Bain is honest and he cares. I am very happy to say that I have finally found a primary doctor that I feel good about.
He takes the time needed to make a through diagnosis. I like the out of the box thinking and he really works though problems.
I think the diagnosis Dr Bain gave was good and didn't over or under medicate, but he's a little all over the place when he talks so it's hard to follow him.
I think Dr. Bain is one of the best doctors there is. His approach is very different from other doctors. He actually cares and talks to you about your problems. I would highly recommend Dr. Bain to anyone looking for a doctor who actually cares about their patients. I will continue to go to Dr. Bain until he retires.
While he may not be a good fit for everyone, I felt like we clicked and his style and philosophy of practicing medicine makes sense to me. I enjoyed having a conversation and felt at ease in the office. As a creative professional I enjoyed the "non-linear" approach to treating the individual, I would highly recommend Dr. Bain for anyone who wants a more personalized approach to medicine.
Very professional considering all angles of your health. You are treated like a human and not just a number.
I've been seeing him for roughly 20 years. I love him.
Dr. Bain might not be for everyone, he takes a more methodical approach and is interested in long-term relationship building rather than churning patients through the lobby. I haven't had a primary care physician, I never formed a relationship of any sort with any health care professional. I consider Dr. Bain an advocate for my health, and will remain with the practice.
Very attentive and will listen and come up with solutions with your concerns. Highly recommend him.
Dr. Bain seems to genuinely care about establishing a relationship with honest and open dialog, rather than simply moving people through the waiting room.
Very personal attention and great 'bed side' manner.
Excellent! Looks at whole patient and root cause vs treating symptoms.
I really depend on Dr. Bain. My appt was wonderful as usual.
Very caring, listened to my entire history and is very knowledgeable.
Great and knowledgeable Doctor.
Great caring Doctor, who listens to his patients and doesn't pontificate.
Dr. Bain is an excellent doctor who cares very much about his patients and takes the necessary time to make sure he can understand the symptoms. He has helped me get well when no other doctor could help me. Highly recommend Dr. Bain!
Bain is amazing. Would recommend him to anyone.
Dr. Bain was extremely attentive during my first visit with him, and was able to refer me to a great specialist based on my medical problem. It was refreshing to interact with a doctor in a non-intimidating setting, and he is very approachable. I will be continuing to go to him for any future conditions.
Dr. Bain is awesome. I was referred to him by a co-worker years ago as I was without a primary Doctor. I can honestly say that she did me huge favor. He is a caring Doctor and actually takes time to talk to you as opposed to seeing a Doctor that has you in and out in 15 minutes. He is actually concerned about your well being and I appreciate that greatly!
Dr. Bain was very kind and thorough.
He's amazing! I can't say enough good things about him. Go see him today. Don't waste time with other physicians like I did. Dr. Bain is the bomb.com :-)
I've been seeing him for over 20 years now and will never leave his practice.
I've been his patient for over 20 years and will never leave his practice.
I really like Dr. Bain. He seems to really care for his patients. I would recommend him for those who have a myriad of issues, but do not know why, or where they stem from. Because of Dr. Bain, I was diagnosed with chronic Lyme Disease. I thought that I had fibromyalgia, but he sent my blood to IGenix, and the test indicated I had been suffering with Lyme Disease. Having said that, I don't think I would recommend him to anyone currently diagnosed with Lyme Disease. He is not an LLMD (Lyme Literate Medical Doctor), so doesn't really know how to treat someone with chronic Lyme. He is a great integrative doctor for most people.
Listen, Dr. Bain is unlike any other doctor you will meet. This gentleman has a mind that works in magical ways. In less than an hour, he pieced together my health history more comprehensively than doctors I had seen for months and came up with a unique plan of action that I strongly believe is going to help me turn my long term health issues in the right direction. If you have the chance to see Dr. Bain and/or have been dealing with a complex issue that doesn't seem to have any resolution, you would be doing yourself a disservice not to book an appointment right now.
Dr. Bain has a very specific method of dealing with patients that may seem strange to some, but he is an excellent physician. He takes the time to know you, your story, and truly get to the bottom of what's off. I've seen him for back problems and for the common cold/sinus infection. He truly cares about his patients and went above and beyond to get me the assistance I needed. He even called a Minute Clinic that gave me the wrong assistance and ended up missing an infection to do quality control. He's great!
Dr. Bain always helps
I found the appointment very strange and not thorough. Dr. Bain did not put me on a scale or take my height, and he seemed flustered and a bit all over the place. I would not go back.
I see Dr Bain for my Candida. I trust him. I feel like he has my best interest at heart. He is the only doctor that took my symptoms seriously and has me on a path to heal the root of the problem. My other doctors believed that there wasn't a cure and my only options were managing my symptoms through medicine. I'm so glad that I was referred to him.
Excellent, caring, and very intelligent!
Great as usual
He seems to me to be a guy that cares and takes the time to do it right.
Dr. Bain is wonderful and he has helped me with my concerns for ongoing health and fitness.
Hi, I just need the prescription we discussed called in to Walgreens. As of yet it has not been received. I need it sent to Walgreens in Huntley Il, the location on Princeton drive 60142. Thanks!
Unlike other doctors, he prefers more of a holistic approach to his medicine. I'm not talking about voodoo witch doctor techniques, but a natural approach to finding out what ails you. He helps you analyze your overall habits and diet to get to the root cause. Instead of prescribing medication, he suggests supplements or changing your lifestyle. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that's the more effective and cheaper route!
I have been his patient for 20 years. I admire his thoughtfulness in coming up with alternatives to unnecessary procedures and treatments. He works for you and doesn't treat you like a cookie cutter doctor as is the norm. He is the first doctor who has treated me like he cares sincerely about my well-being and partners with me in my healthcare issues.
I have been going to DR Bain for over a decade now. He thinks holistically about your health and believes that a healthy life is a journey not spot solution.
Was not satisfied. Get ready to spend too much time just waiting for him to fill out a piece of paper because that was it.
I have been a patient of Dr. Bain for a few years now and if there is one word to describe him it would be Amazing! I will never see another Dr again. After going from Dr to Dr I found him. After being brushed off and hurried out of appointments, it is such a relief to have Dr. Bain. He is the one who has helped me. Dr. Bain thinks outside of the box and spends quality time which is impossible to find. He has found and treated me of what I had not gotten answers for for a long time. He is an extremely smart man. And when the doors close at his office he is still always there for you. He has called and followed up with me, sent me articles which were related to my condition that I could understand, but also backed up with peer reviewed data. I highly recommend him, if you are looking for a Dr. that truly cares. He has changed my life!
Dr. Bain is a GEM. No other doctor will take his time like Dr. Bain. If you are expecting a 5 minutes consultation or a clinic with a lot of bureaucracy and staff you will be disappointed. Be ready to talk and spend some time with this Genius. Dr. Bain is like Dr. House, a genius but a nice genius. He is unconventional but efficient. He is humble and very knowledgeable. He will do his research about your case. My wife and I have seen him for years and we are very happy we find him. He is what doctors are supposed to be, caring and patience. He concentrate in cases that other doctor can’t handle, difficult cases. Remember that medicine is not what you see on TV you can’t solve a problem in one hour. He will take his time, and listen to you. In my opinion he is the best doctor I have met. If you have a chance and need a Doctor make an appointment.
As always, Dr. Bain helped me a great deal. It is such a relief to have such a good doctor who is always so willing and able to help.
He's a snake oil salesman.
He is a ball of energy and information! Nothing about the visit was run of the mill, but Dr. Bain was very knowledgeable and I will definitely be returning!
He was very attentive and listened to my concerns.
Dr. Alan Bain is the best doctor that I have had the pleasure of seeing, taking into account all my past doctors. I've never felt more comfortable discussing my health, usually I'm a bit uncomfortable as a lot of the doctors I've seen tend to come off as condescending, thus making me want to clam up. Dr. Alan is a very unique doctor, so MAKE SURE to read his self description before booking your first appointment, he won't be right for everyone, perfect for me though. If his philosophy fits with you, I 100% recommend you see Dr. Alan.
Dr Bain teams with his patients. He truly listens to your concerns and addresses them in an "outside the box" style. He will address your health issues in ways other doctors never even consider.
Good beside manner. Willing to take the time to get to know you. Would not except co-pay for first visit said yearly check-up should be free and will see what the insurance carrier says. Lots of resources for health issues I have been putting off. Was able to get me in next day. See me right away, when I got to the office. Will be back for second visit after using prescribe treatment for two weeks.
Dr. Bain has helped me with my extreme lack of energy and got rid of a pain in my back/hip which I have had for over a year.
I was ecstatic with the amount of time spent, and the give and take during the dialogue. I felt heard.
Dr, Bain is the best doc around
I had a good visit as always. Dr. Bain is easy to talk to, but more importantly he is concerned about your health and how you are feeling. He has an excellent bedside manner which makes him easy to talk to about anything. And most importantly he knows medicine...in other words when he tells you something he knows exactly what he is talking about.
He is very thorough and caring. Been seeing him for over 20 years and will never leave his practice.
A doctor who works with you! Someone who listens to your concerns, yet not swayed. Simply a doctor who listens, analyses and works with you for a diagnostic and treatment plan. Refreshing.
Excellent visit. Got a lot of health issues ironed out.
Been seeing Dr. Bain for 20 years. Love him.
I have been a patient of Dr. Bain's for 25 years. He's the most attentive Dr. I won't ever leave his practice.
As usual, he is very thorough and able to identify unique solutions that have made significant progress. I've been seeing this doctor for over two years now and wouldn't dream of going to anyone else. He has made so much progress resolving a number of longstanding issues.
I based my visit on what it said on this site. It seems that it only allows you to say positive things, which is probably why I was mislead to believe this was a legitimate doctor. All of the reviews are totally inaccurate. If you dare go there and have a good experience, please respond to me and let me know that I was proven wrong. I am incredibly surprised there are positive reviews on this site. I am inclined to believe they are friends of his. He is NOT a professional physician. He talked in circles about random subjects that did not pertain to the reason for my visit. The end result is that he did not do anything to treat my neck pain. He just took my blood pressure and my co-pay and made my lie on a table. (no treatment). When I was laying on the table he answered his phone on 3 different occasions, and went to his seat to start typing irrelevant information about something going on with his computer system and what "Kevin" was doing wrong. (Who ever that was) He was nervous about asking for the co-pay as if people have denied him in the past. I paid him the co-pay because I felt bad for how horrible of a so called professional he was. I figured no one ever comes back to him. Basically my neck is still sore and I am going to go see a real doctor on Monday. Do not waste your time going here!
He is an interesting character, to say the least. The whole time I was not sure if my visit was real or someone was going to pop out with a Candid Camera.
Dr. Bain was a very genuine smart guy. He keeps the conversation a bit more casual than other doctors I've seen. He loves to talk and get to know you. I felt comfortable in his hands and I would go back and see him again.
Dr. Bain is right there to help any health concern I might come to him with...when needed, he refers to specialists which always turn out to be great ones.
I have been a patient of Dr Bain's for over 10 years. He listens (and remembers) and works with me through some very complex medical issues, never dismissing anything I say.
Dr. Bain is a fantastic doctor who listens to more than just what your mouth is saying.
I've been a patient of Dr. Bain for more than 4 years. I always said and will keep saying that Dr. Bain saved my life. I went to, approximately, 4 doctors, explained them my symptoms and all of them treated my illness as a "stomach virus/infection, etc" none of them looked my issues from a different angle. When I found Dr. Bain, I knew he was the right physician for me. His diagnosis changed my life completely. I feel healthier thanks to his treatments and knowledge. I do not hesitate to recommend Dr. Bain to everybody because I know he is a great doctor who cares for his patients. I'm glad that I was able to find an amazing doctor and a great person with a big heart.
Wonderful service!! Great doctor ho really listens to you and cares about your well being. Highly recommended!!
Dr. Bain is an awesome doctor. I can't say enough good things about him. I feel so grateful to have found him
Good visit, excellent doctor!
Very helpful and informative
bain is the main
Every visit with Dr Bain is a personal one, where he takes the time to fully understand the problem before planning treatment. He remembers the little details across several visits and always follows up on small things to see if they've changed.
Wonderful, as always. I always know I am in good hands with Dr. Bain and trust him completely. I will not go to any another doctor.
I love Dr. Bain. I will never see another doctor. I have been seeing him for 7 months and every visit he makes me feel like he cares and always tries to dig deep to find the actual cause of my problem and not just through some medicine at and send me on my way. He is truly a great doctor
Dr. Bain is utterly professional and caring. He gets to the bottom of issues and is dedicated to healing.
I see Dr Bain regularly. Each visit is beneficial.
Dr. Bain is an excellent doctor and diagnostician. He always takes time to listen to what I have say and keeps me involved in decisions about treatment. I feel like we are a team working together! Dr. Bain also has an optimistic disposition and positive energy that has been a great to me in coping with the situation. He makes himself available all the time and he genuinely cares about his patients and their well being.
I saw a previous post of a new patient that was clearly not someone who understood Dr. Bain and the way he practices. If you want a "dyed-in-the-wool" of this day & age dr., he's definitely NOT it. Which is why I go to him! If you want a dr. who is trying to keep his appt. times to 6 minutes per patient--again, NOT Dr. Bain! He is one of the most thorough, thoughtful and humble physicians I've had the honor of calling "my" dr.! He spends time with you (yes, he's a bit distracted, but it's always in service of HELPING); his knowledge is beyond today's typical medical school, also encompassing homeopathy and other 'alternative' treatments. (I know a lot of this because my dad was an M.D. & my brother & brother-in-law are also M.D.s).
Dr. Bain has been my doctor for several years..I went in with some new health complaints and he zeroed in on what's causing my illness and ordered a few tests. He gave me some immediate help today. Will see him again in the near future. I am always very happy with the care I get from Dr. Bain. He always has a good understanding of why I am there and a good memory of what my past health issues have been.
Dr. Bain always has a good grasp of my health and The various issues I come to him with. He provides excellent health care and refers me to the appropriate, very top notch resources if there are other issues he feels I need extra help with.
Dr. Bain has an exceptional talent for zeroing in on what the root cause or causes of your health problems are and coming up with a treatment plan that will give you the most relief the quickest. He also gives you a long range plan for dealing with everything to bring you back into balance and good health. I would never go to another doctor until I see Dr. Bain and get his screening. He always gives excellent treatment and advice to stay healthy.
I walked into the office (which is already shady to begin with) and there was no secretary, no office decor, just two rooms with him being in one of them. As I walked in he said "are you visiting from out of town or are you a resident?" After telling him that I was visiting (which I am not, I moved out here a year ago), he told me that I should go to the clinic down the street because he was unable to help me. Yes. You read that correctly - a clinic. Prior to coming into the office, he sent me a PDF file in which he specifically points out that he is a doctor for Chicago residents and doesn't do people who are in town. Now, as a doctor, I believe that oh, I don't know, you should probably not be selective in who you treat as oh, again, you never know, when your business could tank. Being the son of a doctor, I think I know a little bit about this and am INFURIATED with the way this guy handled my situation. Needless to say, I went over to Northwestern Hospital, got with a real doctor and got everything straightened out. Would never ever go back to Dr. Bain again. Ever
Looking forward to next visit
Dr Bain takes the time to really listen, he is thorough and looks at a patient's complete health.
BEST DOCTOR IN TOWN!!
My visit was great. Dr. Bain is an awesome Doctor. He is extremely knowledgeable and knows medicine very well. He's on point with his diagnosis. I am happy to have been referred to him.
He is a wonderful holistic practitioner. He really listens and cares about you.
Dr Bain is a down to earth man easy to talk to with a good sense of humor, I feel like doctor Bain genuinely wants to find the cause of my problems.
It was good , to the point and already starting a plan
Dr. Bain and I have a very good doctor/patient relationship. He truly cares about helping his patients figure out the cause of their illness when other doctors cannot.
Very knowledgeable and helpful for my real results.
Dr. Bain is determined to get to the root of the problem and not just treat the symptoms.
Been seeing Dr. Bain for 20 years. Would not consider seeing anyone else.
My visit with Dr. Bain today was very informative and helpful..he gave me a lot to consider as far as treatment and always leaves it up to me to decide what I feel will work best for me after he has given me options.
He saw me right away . Used acupuncture it Helped me with pain . I feel much better now.
Dr. Bain takes a personal interest and care in me as a patient, and genuinely wants to help me get better and stay healthy. Where other doctors shoved me out the door with a quick prescription, Dr. Bain was willing to discuss treatment options, explore potential causes/exacerbating issues, and walk me through what treatment and improvement would look like.
Always listens and tries to actually figure out what is going on instead of medicating the issue. He is a bit eccentric, but most geniuses are! Get to the root of your health issues with Dr. Bain!
Dr. Bain was very thorough in determining the issues and what the next course of action is.
wonderful as always. Dr. Bain is the best doctor there is in my opinion. I wouldn't trust anyone else.
Very good, went extremely well, he is great
His depth of knowledge to get to root cause of illness, pain, general being is phenomenal.
Excellent as usual
Having been told by many other doctors that my multiple chronic symptoms were either benign, psychosomatic or inevitable due to aging, I could hardly believe that my 14-year suffering of migraine would be gone with one medication prescribed by Dr Bain at my 2nd visit. I know also that this is NOT sheer luck because Dr Bain's diagnoses were based on lab results, and he ordered those labs based on his thorough investigation of my health and his profound knowledge of medicine. Blue Cross PPO spent tens of thousands of dollars for my healthcare during the past decades to have brought me no relief until I found Dr Bain. The tools to cure many chronic conditions are there in Western medicine, but it takes a genius doctor to unlock their potentials and I am so happy that I found him!
Genius, professional and kind.
As usual, Dr. Bain helped me deal with the various health problems I was experiencing. I get almost immediate relief whenever I work with him. And I always leave his office with the answers and options I might want to try to get completely well again.
He goes much farther out of his way to help me as his patient than any other doctor I know. He sees patterns, possibilities and works systematically to detect or rule out diagnoses. In the end, he ordered fewer tests than many of my doctors as it appears that he knows what he is looking for. It was only my first visit and my hunch is that if anyone can help me, it would be Dr Bain. I have utmost respect for a physician like Dr Bain, who gives his 100 percent and, for all that I can see, is determined to heal his patients.
Dr. Bain is the best doctor I've ever been to. So thankful for him
At first I really liked Dr. Bain, but he is really very easily distracted and actually answers his mobile phone during visits (multiple times, not just once). He constantly talks about insurance and co-pays and at times seems more concerned with payment than he is with treating. Honestly, I hate giving negative reviews, but I just truly feel that people need to know that he is seriously distracted and if you are the type that would get upset by a dr. cutting into your appointment by answering personal calls on his mobile phone during your visit than you may not want to see him. He is nice, but sometimes nice isn't enough.
This was a very healing experience for me. Dr. Bain has some wonderful talent; he's a good listener, too.
I love this doctor, he is great....
I feel really comfortable with Dr. Bain and have a lot of confidence in him
Over the past 15 years, I've gone to numerous specialists for my GI problems.... I had a gastroenterologist, a otolaryngology, a motility specialist, etc., and had numerous rather invasive and uncomfortable tests done. In the past 20 months, Dr. Bain has made more progress working towards "normal" than any other doctor I have ever worked with. He listens, he is brilliant, and he genuinely cares. He's absolutely unique in his office, his demeanor, his treatment methods, but he is on the right track. That being said, he isn't necessarily the doctor for everyone (does that really exist?), and if patients aren't ready to actively commit to be open minded and allow him to pursue what he thinks is the best course of action, they aren't going to get the best of Dr. Bain. Highly recommend!
I highly recommend Dr Bain, but please read my comments as he is not the regular "stiff, ask the questions, get it done" kind of doctor you might get at a large medical group. He takes his time with each patient, asking layers of questions, trying to use his medical knowledge as well as that of natural and homeopathic solutions (and sometimes this might cause a wait for the next patient, but he will do the same for you). I, personally, like the combination of sources he is able to turn to, and find his new direction of convergent therapeutics a very interesting addition.
Dr. Bain takes time to know his patient.
Very informative. He spent a lot of time with me and me feel like he really cared and was interested in figuring out what is wrong with me. I would highly recommend this doctor.
I enjoyed my visit at Dr. Bains office. He's very nice and professional.
Excellent doctor and a great human being!
Dr. Bain is an amazing Doctor, he listens to you and he truly cares about helping his patients. He practices a wonderful technique S.B.R.T that helped me right away with a chronic back pain. I highly recommend visiting Dr. Bain, he has been helping for years with Hashimoto's Disease and so far he is the best!
Dr. Bain is a little different from the usual doctor's process of seeing patients (no front desk or assistant), but was super friendly and attentive. He made sure that all my questions were answered and all my concerns were addressed in detail. He also made sure that I would be able to reach him directly at anytime in case of any question or emergency as well as to monitor my condition closely. He's very energetic and avid so can be a bit all over the place at times, so make sure that his notes on you are correct. He is excellent and is willing to spend as long as you need to make sure that you are reassured and satisfied with your visit and your health.
Dr. Bain is knowledgeable and was able to immediately provide recommendations to begin narrowing down possible medical problems. Great rapport Glad to have a local doctor that is easy to talk to and that cares about his patients
I've been a patient of Dr. Bain for many years, and I remember that he has been helpful with surprisingly diverse problems, some of which were known to other doctors who helped less than he has.
Dr. Bain is the man! He has a lot of soul and is very dedicated to his work. He genuinely loves to help people. Three cheers for Dr. Bain.
Although I had seen many doctors in the past year regarding my candida condition, Dr. Bain was the only one, not just knowledgeable about my condition, but able and willing to assit me as I presented to him all my lab work. I found him most kind and knowledgeable about candida and its treatment. I have a followup appointment with him in two weeks. I highly recommend him to anyone suffering from any medical condition where your primary physician has been unsuccessful. He is a wealth of information.
Dr Bain always takes plenty of time and never rushes through an appointment. He's very thorough and welcomes my input.
He is the best doctor I've ever had! I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a doctor that really cares and listens to you.
I've been seeing Dr. Bain for a while now and he is the man. I highly recommend him.
He is such a nice and helpful doctor, and could give you suggestions right away.
Dr. Bain is great. As a D.O., I love that he has homeopathy and alternative treatments such as acupuncture available to patients. I feel like I am in good hands with Dr. Bain, he is a very competent doctor and takes great case of his patients.
Dr. Bain always proves himself to care about the total well being of his patients. He is a "big picture" guy in the health field, a true partner in evaluating my overall well-being.
I was confused with questions about my religion orientation. Uncomfortable.
He was very attentive to my medical issues.
Dr. Bain has changed my life. I was sick for more than 2 years, living with PCOS, Hashimoto Thyroiditis and gluten intolerance. I did not know I had this three health conditions until I met Dr. Bain. None of the doctors I used to see were able to find my health issues. I highly recommend him.
Actually concerned about getting to the bottom of problems.
Very quirky and unique. I'm not a huge fan of his almost meditative treatment as I don't feel it is effective at treating some of my physical ailments. He could be a good fit others, but I don't think he was right for me.
He cares about his patients and I'll definitely come back to see him again.
He's very intuitive with his accurate diagnosis.
He is very thorough and sincerely interested in getting to the root of the problem
Unlike my experience with other doctors, Dr. Bain is actually trying to get to the bottom of my issues. Other doctors have prescribed drugs before running tests, or simply asked me to check in 6 months later.
This was my first visit with Dr. Bain and I was impressed. He took the time to ask proper questions and he listened carefully to what I had to say and he made many good suggestions/recommendations. No waiting time to see him upon arrival. Highly recommended!
He's always so attentive and engaged. He explores areas other medical professionals more than likely would not. I'm lucky to have found him.
Dr. Bain is really good at what he does. I would definietly recommend him.
Always great and to the point. No messing around.
Dr. Bain is fantastic. I trust him 100% and truly feel that he is taking careful and thorough consideration in the ways he is tailoring my treatment regimen.
Dr. Bain is very passionate about his profession. He's a good listener and remains committed to helping his patients. I was looking for a doctor who was truly invested in the health of his patients and I found one.
It was Great!
Dr. Bain is the best doctor I have ever come across. He actually listens to your concerns and works WITH you as opposed to ignoring all of your concerns. He works hard to get to the bottom of what you're experiencing and looks at every possible angle.
0utstanding doctor. the best.
Horribly unprofessional. Old equipment.
It was great!
Dr. Bain always helps me with whatever health issue I come to him with. He sometimes doesn't appear to be listening to me (because he gets busy multi-tasking), but I always find out he heard every word I said. Dr. Bain has kept me healthy and well since 1997! No doctor has given me help like he has, no matter what is going on with me..his referrals to specialists are always top notch as well.
Great guy! Great communication.
Very informative. Dr. Bain takes the time to explain things to you. You don't ever feel like you are being rushed when you make an appointment with him. He is awesome.
Alan Bain takes an untraditional approach and is very laid back. I enjoyed my experience but I don't think it's for everyone. I will be back to see him again as I believe he was completely tuned in to my needs bad offered the appropriate care.
Though he is friendly and seems to listen, he is unorganized and comes across as a scatter brain. This did not inspire confidence. Then when he proposed alternative medicine, I lost all interest in returning.
Everyone there was very courteous and genuine. They went about their business and kept me in the loop at the same time.
Very unprofessional and made me uncomfortable. I would NOT recommend him to anyone who wants a productive appointment (for example, he didn't even check the usuals: weight, blood pressure, etc.!). My appointment was a total waste of time and I still cannot believe how unprofessional he was both speaking and in practice.
Dr. Bain is extremely eccentric. It is a little but overwhelming at first, but his level of care and enthusiasm for patients is unprecedented.
Dr. Bain has a very unique approach, which I found refreshing. He really spends time understanding what brought you in and is very invested in your health. He is also well versed in homeopathic and alternative treatments but is perfectly happy to provide a simple GP visit, depending on your needs. This was certainly a different doctor visit experience than I expected, but I must admit I was favorably impressed. I'll be back to see him as my regular GP from now on.
I've been seeing dr. Bain for years. He takes his time with the patients, really cares about them and tries his hardest to come up with a solution to the problem. He's funny and quirky and not your typical doctor. I think he's great.
Not your typical MD. I loved my visit with Dr. Bain. He takes all the awkwardness out of seeing a Doctor.
Dr. Bain is fantastic. He’s unlike any doctor I’ve seen (and I’ve seen many). My search for the a doctor is finally over. Dr. Bain is the real deal.
He's always genuinely helpful.
Dr. Bain is quirky but a great Doctor.
Fantastic and practical guy! The appointment took less than 20 minutes, and I had all my questions answered.
COOL! Very unique and unconventional, but highly professional. I loved it. This guy genuinely cares about you and takes the time to listen and help when others might not, he's very supportive. Visiting Dr. Bain isn't like seeing any other doctor but he is damn good. I've never seen a medical professional so fiercely march to the beat of his drum.
He really wants to get to know you and your needs. He greeted me the minute I came in.
Very professional! I love this doctor because he truly cares about your health problems as well as what is going on in your life. Super funny and nice!
Always fixes what hurts! This is a kind brilliant Doctor.
Very thorough. I will be looking to see if I am sensitive to gluten.
Dr. Bain is very informative. I always learn something when I see him and it is always pertinent to my overall health.
he is good, very talkative
As always he was very helpful and gave me the help I needed.
I went in right away and he was so friendly and welcoming. Such a nice guy and very helpful and personable!
As always excellent, informative and healing. Highly recommended to all.
a Great find
It was great. I was in and out. He's a great physician.
Dr Bain is the best doctor I've ever seen in my life. He listens, understands, and includes the patient in identifying an appropriate treatment plan that works fast and works best.
The Doctor was extremely too casual for my liking and did not provide treatment or even a legitimate consultation. As soon as I met with him he advised that I go to a Diagnostic Center to get my blood drawn etc and then he would meet with me at a later time to go over the results. He made several comments alluding to getting treatment for STDs even though that wasn't something that I had mentioned and was there full annual checkup. If you're looking for a very casual experience then Dr. Bain is the right doctor for you. His approach wasn't my style.
he was an interesting person, seemed to be a good doctor. unconventional, but i like that. good bedside manner, professional, yet easy to speak with.
Love seeing Dr. Bain he is alway professional and willing to listen and recommend who to go see or make recommendation
Dr Bain is an excellent doctor! He works side by side with you on your wellness journey.
Days later, I'm sure I've benefitted further from further treatment for a continuing problem. I think I always benefit from a visit, sometimes in unexpected ways.
He is wonderful. Professional and very knowledgeable.
Normally I get in to see him right away, but I had an appointment at the end of the day, and he was running quite a bit late. It doesn't happen, often, though. He came out to greet me and appologize in person, and he made sure I was hanging out comfortably during my wait.
I think I have always benefited by a visit, sometimes by a treatment I didn't anticipate. This time was for my back, which is definitely much better, after ten days of not improving by itself.
Very knowedgeable and empathetic.
Dr. Bain is the ideal physician. He has the most current information and innovative treatments that medicine has to offer. His treatment is enhanced by his extensive knowledge, empathetic approach and his decency as a human being.
It was great!!!!
My visit was great. He answer questions and discover the problem many before him had missed. So grateful.
Excellent Doctor. He takes his time and you can tell he truly cares.
He made me feel at ease and lessen my fears about my possible prognosis.
It was a very pleasant experience and I was able to present all the medical problems that needed to be addressed. He was attentive and given me may options.
As always he is caring, kind, and puts patients first.
He is so helpful and friendly, many thanks to Dr. Bain.
Very thorough as always. Takes time to listen to me, accepts my input and treats me as more partner than merely patient.
Dr. Bain has a calm, small office where the patient immediately sees the doctor himself, not an office manager or a nurse or a physician's assistant. Absent those intermediaries, one feels like a patient and not a cog in a medical machine.
He always goes out of his way to solve my medical issues. He thinks creatively and cares about the well-being of his patients.
It was a very informative consultation. Dr. Bain made me feel comfortable and I was able to tell him all the medical issues I want to discuss. He was very thorough, yet witty and over all I was impressed with him.
Great! It was quick and he's very funny and personable.
Dr. Bain really listened to me and asked me questions about my issue. He was thorough, engaged, and very comforting.
Excellent doctor, one of a kind. He is very thoughtful, listens carefully, and is genuinely interested in your overall well-being not just your immediate health concern. Best one-on-one care I've ever received.
Dr. Bain has taken the time and effort to understand my complex health issues, Although to me, some of his questions seem unusual, they lead back to the problem but often reveal my unspoken symptoms. This allows him the ability to adjust his treatment for better results
I have been very happy with him. He is insightful, resourceful and very good at what he does. I am very grateful to have such a gifted and caring doctor on our team.
Dr. Bain was caring and thorough. He took time to addressed my overall health, not just a few symptoms.
A great Doctor, fun to visit!
A marvelous internal medicine specialist!
The man is amazing!!
Far beyond the average doctor!!
Dr. Bain is the best! I've since moved and live further away from his office than I did when I started seeing him and I couldn't imagine going anywhere else for medical care.
I am an IN lawyer with RA who travels from IN to CHI every two weeks to work with Dr. Bain. He has helped my immeasurably over the last year. He discovered health issues that no other doctors had (and I have seen many). He has been a great partner in my pursuit of good health.
Very nice, had good suggestions, and made me feel comfortable.
Awesome doctor that you can easily open up to.
It was fine.
I really enjoyed the visit, he has earned a lifelong patient!
He is truly a doctor who cares. He will go above and beyond with his patients - some times this require patience. If anyone is going to get it right it will be Dr. Bain, but this is not magic. You may think, "Huh?" and then later you will realize, how great the idea was/is! If you listen to him you will make great strides and bettering yourself and your illness/disease. He has helped me in more ways than any other doctor has before. Extraordinary and sometime perplexing - totally amazing!
Dr. Bain is always interested in listening to all segments of my life so that he can get a more thorough understanding of how to help me with my concerns. We went over the results of my blood test and gave me some good suggestions which I will implement.
Makes you feel like you are really his main focus
Doc Bain is the best!!
Professional environment and treatment. Highly recommended
Need to follow up with him after lab results are in
the most understanding and insightful doctor I have encountered.
Excellent as always!
He is a really interesting man with a lot of knowledge. One thing i really liked about him is that he is really focused on really understanding his patients in order to give a really thorough recommendation for a course of action that is best for their overall health.
He's the best, most personally invested, physician I've ever met.
I love Dr. Bain! He's honest, and fun, and I trust him with my health. I would recommend him to anyone.
He is the best doctor I've been to. He treats the whole patient and really listens. His intuitive abilities makes him a better clinician in getting to the cause of dis-ease and treatment solutions. He really cares about his patients.
He is a very good doctor. I recommend him.
As always, a great experience. holistic, systematic approach to my health and wellness. thanks dr. bain!!
As always, he was very thorough & professional. He really listens and works with me unlike most of my past doctors that just would talk at me & send me on my way.
Good doctor, but was more interested in talking than examining me physically. Good for general stuff, would go elsewhere for anything specific.
Painfull back spasms- pull Felt 50 percent better within 10 minutes of treatment UnBelievable
responsive, understands symptoms and knows how to treat his patients. As always, he had good answers for me
Dr. Bain makes going for a period check-up fun. A little quirky on purpose to make you feel at ease and casual. Would recommend to anyone looking for a general physician.
Dr Bain always gets it. No problem is too small. You can tell him anything and he is on it, diagnosing and treating.
Dr.Bain treats your mind, body and soul. A true, caring professional.
He's awesome! Listens to everything I have to say and the best part... He wants to hear and listen!
I am very impressed with his knowledge and temperament
Through and excellent!
He is extremely professional and astute in his practice.
Very informative! thinks outside the box
I really liked Dr. Bain. My only qualm is that he does not have the ability to run blood tests on site- one must go across the street to Quest Diagnostics. I need on-site bloodwork because otherwise I manage to just never get it done.
Very knowledgeable doctor who treated me very seriously.
It was fine; we wrapped my current concerns. (But I saw him in his *office* so I can't really rate his "bedside" manner - this form needs a better phrase there.)
He is probably one of THE most thorough and most knowledgeable physicians practicing in our world today. He is caring, highly efficient and thinks ‘out of the box’ for all possible explanations and for best results.
It was fine, a little better than another medical professional I also consulted on my problem.
His unusual style goes along with his readiness to consider unusual approaches to patients' problems.
I feel that he is a true healer.
I am impressed with Dr. Bain and will see him again in the near future
He is an excellent doctor who genuinely cares about the well being of his patients and teaching them how to improve aspects of their health naturally.
Best doctor ever!!!
Dr. Bain is a very caring thorough doctor who treats each patient individually.
He cares. He really cares. He will do anything to find the source of the problem. He listens! He takes his time with his patients. I do not know what I would do without him. He has forever changed my life by fixing problems that other doctors gave up on.
I have been seeing him for almost 20 years and absolutely love him! I have seen many doctors and he is by far the most caring and concerned for my well-being.
Dr. Bain has a communication style that I would generously describe as scattered. He bounced from one topic to another and often interrupted me. He may be a very good doctor but I was unable to find out as his communication style is extremely off-putting and I will not be seeing him again.
Dr. Bain is great. He is a wonderful doctor doing a tremendous job and worth his weight in gold!
This is going to be an experience!
Very insightful .
Terrific physician. He cares a lot about his patients, is a good listener, and knows about innovative treatments. Highly recommended.
I choose Dr. Alan Bain because I want a Doctor who is real. Dr. Bain with me, not at me and then we discuss the different treatment options. Over the years of using Dr. Bain, he has become not just my Doctor but my friend.
If you prefer a mundane practitioner don't go here. He is a very good guy with a lot of humor. Very practical approach to medicine that I appreciate.
Dr. Bain is the best.
like always, kind and generous with his practice
Great intellect. Superior intuitive skills.
Like always, a great visit. He's been busy so he got a little behind today, but that is not normal, it's the first time I had to wait more than a couple of minutes to be seen. Thanks dr. Bain!
Very knowledgable. No google diagnostics used, all from his knowledge and love of medicine.
I've been seeing Dr. Bain for a little more than a year. I have had multiple things to work on, and he has been very comprehensive, thoughtful, and persistent in helping me solve many problems that have remained unresolved for years. I am very grateful for his approach.
Very thorough. Great problem solver. Getting to the root of the problem, not just a temporary solution.
He was fabulous as always!
He is a compassionate, creative and skilled doctor who is open to the right solution for each individual's health situation. Patient, knowledgeable, kind. I highly recommend him.
I thought it was fantastic and very awesome!
Dr. Bain is truly a great healer.
He really cares about my care and progress as a person, not just a patient.
Very insightful and caring professional. He joined the medical field for all the right reasons. Lovely person and physician. Highly recommend him. One of Chicago's rare gems!
Dr Bain is thorough, and treats the whole person. He really listens.
An eccentric and thoughtful man... my kind of person to deal with.
He is a phenomenal physician. His intuitive skills are jaw dropping they are so amazing. Beautiful soul and caring individual!
he listens and problem solves, not just what I say but also asks the questions to figure out appropriate answers
Dr. bain has diagnosed and treated isssues that other doctors who are reputed to be leaders in the field have missed.
Doc Bain is always great!
Dr. Bain is very knowledgeable and his approach is refreshing.
Dr. Bain was warm and a great listener. I was able to get in to see him right away and he listened to all my questions. He also took the time to get to know me a bit. His office is conveniently located in the Loop. I recommend him!
Very personable doctor. He makes going to his office more fun than feeling like a chore. Great personality and talks to you like a real person instead of a number to check off his daily list.
He was great at listening to what my problem was and helping me figure out a solution.
When I have had to wait, it's because Dr Bain is taking time with a patient, which is why I always appreciate the time he takes with me.
He's brilliant and very intuitive.
He is absolutely the best doctor EVER.
awesome, he never runs of ideas or words to say.
I continue to see Dr. Bain because of his wholistic approach to health care. As a nurse, I want a physician who's practice is more than traditional medicine. Dr. Bain does that and takes time to really listen to me. He really cares about my health care needs and looks for more wholistic solutions to my health with an actual healing not just another "pill" to try and treat an ailment. Hats off to Dr. Bain and his approach. Thank you for treating the root cause of my health issues.
I've been seeing Dr. Bain for about two years already and he is just wonderful. He listens to you and he does care, he wants you to feel good and healthy. Last time I was there he truly worked magic on a horrible pain I had. I left the office without any pain at all, I never experienced that with any doctor in my entire 38 years of life.
He was very friendly, but not very professional. I didn't feel good trusting him. He talked a lot about his bamboo keyboard and his love of jazz, and kind of steamrolled me when I tried talking about my health. Which is not something I look for in a GP.
I have been seeing Dr. Bain for a number of years. Having been diagnosed with a thyroid condition, he was the only doctor who listened to me and treated me and helped me feel better instead of just trying to make the numbers on my labs fall within a "normal" range. He treats the whole person and for that I am grateful. If you're looking for a doctor who will truly try to find the root of your problems and treat that and NOT just mask symptoms, he's who you're looking for. My condition has recently changed with my thyroid and Dr. Bain is leaving no stone unturned. I know he will figure this out and will get me back to feeling good again soon.
He's a great empathetic doctor.
Dr. Bain is a very caring doctor. He takes the time out to fully explain to you what is going on and you can tell he genuinely cares on helping you feel better.
Personalized health care! He took his time to get to know me and you really feel like he wants to help. A refreshing experience coming from offices where I barely see the doctor.
He is wonderful. He helped me so much when I really needed him and made wonderful suggestions to bring me back to full health. I have ultimate faith in Dr. Bain.
I think he's great.
Dr Bain was great, answered all my questions, and gave easy-to-understand answers and explanations about the diagnostic he made. I highly recommend him. He also treats you as a person, not a customer, which is great.
Dr. Bain is extremely intelligent and a passionate and driven investigator. He doesn't simply treat symptoms as most physicians would, but rather aims to get to the bottom of the root causes of them. Like an astute professor, he expects your full participation. He wants you on "the team," so to speak, so that together you can uncover the clues and resolve the mystery. He is candid, very frank, compassionate, and quite funny, and will take as much time with you as necessary during your appointment to dig deep for the answers.
Dr. Bain is very knowledgeable, compassionate, caring, and unique in many ways.
Different in a good way hands on with the job "I like that " .
Very impressed. Looking forward to my next visit.
Appointments with Dr. Bain are so much less stressful than with other doctors I've seen. His office isn't cold and hospital-like. He's friendly and casual, but very smart and actually listens to patients. He's never uptight and there's no need to play games, so it's easier to be upfront about what's going on and what you want.
Dr. Bain is excellent. He takes the time to listen to me and then fully explain our next course of action. He is kind and considerate, and also quite funny. Since I first started seeing Dr. Bain my health has improved dramatically. He has helped me get to the root of some complex medical issues.
Awesome as always!
Dr. Bain continues to amaze me with his unique insights. He orders blood tests that no other doctors order and they show serious conditions that need immediate attention. Then, as an added bonus, he worked on my frozen shoulder and it is more improved in one treatment than working with other practitioners for years.
Best doctor ever!
He is very smart and I have complete confidence in him.
He is a very personalized doctor, and might not be right for everyone, however, he is willing to work with you to find the best, most efficient, and natural solution for you.
He's a gem. He is patient and understanding and a great problem solver. I'm glad I found him.
Dr. Bain has my health and well being at the forefront of his mind when I'm with him.
First doctor in a VERY long time who actually listened to me! I'm psyched to have found him. Already recommended him to friends.
Dr. Bain can "read" people and know that there is more than just a prescription that you may need. He has a strong intuitive sense that is truly amazing and definitely lacking in most other doctors.
Always a pleasure meeting with Dr. Bain.
I very ill one day and made an appointment to see Dr. Bain the next day and it turns out - he was ill as well! He had his assistant call me to tell me of his sickness and I still wanted to see him so he came all the way into his office to see me. He still asked all the right questions, he had all the right concerns, he wanted me to know what kind of doctor he is and had excellent bedside manner. I would HIGHLY recommend this doctor to anyone searching for a doctor that cares about their health.
Dr Bain is extremely thorough and nonjudgemental. If he is running behind, he comes out to the waiting room and checks on you and lets you know how long he will be.
He's the BEST doctor I have ever seen.
Such caring and Doctor wouldn't change him for any other one.
He's such a good doctor. Unfortunately, I didn't know he doesn't take HMO anymore. I just switched and had I'd known... that wouldn't have happened. He still gave me options and was willing to work with me. I've been with him since 2006.
a great problem solver; listens to all the concerns and comes up with several, possible solutions
Dr. Bain is a very good doctor and is very knowledgeable.I went for a follow up and he answered all my questions as always. He is very thorough and explains things in a manner which I can easily understand.He truly shows that he cares about his patients progress and recovery.
Dr. Bain is unlike most doctors I have seen. He spends a great deal of time and he truly wants to help you with your problems. He is the opposite of most practices. His goal is not to maximize the number of people seen. It is to make sure you are healthy and on the right path. I truly appreciate that care and attention.
I received wonderful medical care and advice, which I always do in an appointment with Dr. Bain
Dr. Bain is an amazing Dr. He always helps and takes time to listen.
I think this doctor is just fabulous - been going to him for almost 20 years.
he is thorough, open-minded, investigative, positive
We accomplished everything I wanted
Fantastic, a brilliant and caring doctor!
One of the best Dr. visits I ever had!
Dr. Bain is such a caring individual. He takes the time to hear out what you feel and tries to work with you to find the best line of treatment. He actually cares about the patient and he is one of the funniest people I have met. Can't find a better doctor!
He was the best doctor I have ever seen he is a really cool guy.
Another reassuring appointment with a fantastic doctor!!
Best doctor in town.
Great listener; plentiful practical knowledge; "lets figure this out" approach
Excellent as usual, one of the smartest and friendliest doctors I've ever met.
My appointment was nice.
He's the best!
Excellent! Looks beyond the obvious.
Really cares about the overall health and well-being of his patients. Highly recommended!
Good and thorough: much more covered than I came in with.
He was very thorough.
Very good at listening to what the patient has to say and really tries to help find a solution to the health problem.
I appreciate his honesty and find him to be Knowledgable. He does not rush. A refreshing trait
Dr. Bain is awesome; Very nice and very knowledgable.
Compassionate and caring doctor.
I am feeling better today
Today was my first visit. I am a new patient. I liked his concern about my health. He spent his time with me (without charging me) explaining me his approach and his responsibility he assumes by taking me as his patient. I believe he is the doctor I was looking for .
He was very attentive and down to earth. I don't like doctors but I felt it was a good visit.
Dr Bain is so compassionate, understanding and thorough.
I look forward to seeing him. He seemed very committed to working in a solution with me to solve my situation.
He was very good at listening to me, and even followed up by calling me at home with more information.
Great guy, and very very interesting intellectually. Very well versed medically as well.
always attentive and not only gives an evaluation, listens to opinions and suggestions.
Very smart doctor, like a detective. Interested on getting to the root of the problem, not just to treat he symptoms.
Excellent! Very unusual and interesting. It was great to meet a doctor who cared!!
He's wonderful, came highly recommended and I would recommend him too.
I was seen quickly, my questions were answered and my needs were met.
I love seeing Dr. Bain. He is always willing to work with you and looks into your best interest with an excellent end result.
He was a delight,very interesting, and extremely knowledgeable! His approach to helping you solve your mystery illness is unique and comforting! I'm thankful that I found him!
He treats patients as real people with individual needs rather than just a set of symptoms out of context.
Dr. Bain is amazing! I have never felt more comfortable speaking with a Doctor, and I have never been to a Doctor who was truly interested in who I was. The importance of that is that he was trying to learn as much as he could about me so that he could understand my entire life which will help him to improve my overall health and well being. I look forward to my next visit.
Follow up appointment with Dr. Bain was excellent. He is very thorough, he explained all of my test results and answered all my questions. I feel like he really cares about me getting healthy again. I am looking forward to feeling better and improving my condition with Dr. Bain's help and guidance.
Dr. Bain is a special doctor. I feel like he really cares about me and listens to my concerns.
At first I thought Dr. Bain was really odd as he seemed to jump around a lot from topic to topic, but after five minutes with him I could tell he was really interested in learning about me. Plus he is really funny. Instead of just telling you what your diagnosis is and what you should do, then pushing you out the door he was really interested in hearing what you would like for treatment (i.e. medication vs. holistic medication, or no medication at all) and working with you to set up a program to address it. My only recommendation would be for him to be more upfront at sharing his expert recommendation. He completed all those years of school, so don't be afraid to share those thoughts. He has a lot of great ideas that I never knew were options.
Very personable, I enjoyed my visit with doctor Bain.
I feel So much better ; When I came in I was in A LOT of back pain and now I am A LOT BETTER .
Dr. Bain is excellent. He really gets to know the patient. I didn't feel rushed and he answered each and every question I had. He spent a long time talking to me and learning about my symptoms. He is sincerely interested in the well being of his patients. I highly recommend him.
Dr.Bain has been treating me for the past few years and I must say he really understands and cares about his patients. He treats the whole person and really listens to concerns and symptoms that most other physicians seem to minimize or disregard. He is very intuitive and has proven his abilities time and time again. I am a nurse and would highly recommend anyone to also receive the incredible care that Dr. Bain provides in his practice. Thank you for all that you do Dr. Bain.
Dr. Bain is the most compassionate and delving into detail Dr. == I have numerous health conditions. Some,at times, totally incapacitating. I have been to twice as many Dr.s and specialists than I have fingers. I rate Dr. Bain the best and I have trust in his ability.
He was very easy to talk to.
This was my first experience with this type of doctor and he was very nice, patient and explained things well. He seemed genuinely concerned and had a good rapport with my son.
Very thoughtful, very professional
I've been seeing him for 18 years - I love him.
I've know Dr. Bain for many years now and you can say he is more like a friend that you can trust and he makes you feel comfortable no matter the situation.
Great conversation and makes you feel comfortable!
Very helpful visit...Dr. Bain is the best of the allopathic and alternative medical paradigms. Highly recommended!
I appreciated all the time and attentive questions he gave me.
I was coming in to see Dr. Bain for several issues I was having. He took me into his office right away and sat down and actually talked to me. He listend to my concerns and needs and felt that he could help me with most of my issues but not all. He was veyr honest which was much appreciated. He called up another practice and got me in to see them right away. I was so grateful for his help and would reccommend him to anyone. He is very nice and actually listens to you.
Dr. Bain treats the mind, body and soul. Highly recommended
Dr. Bain is a kind, compassionate man who cares about his patients. He puts our well-being first in every circumstance. I am thoroughly impressed by the degree of personal attention he freely gives in this age of abrupt and insurance-driven service. He is extremely resourceful in getting what needs to be done taken care of in a professional manner. I am very fortunate to have him as a physican.
It was very informative and he took the time to explain everything.
Very smart and attentive.
Dr. Bain was not actually able to treat me due to my condition; however, he went out of his way to get in touch with a physician who would be able to do so -- he continued to call until he got me in immediately elsewhere. I appreciate him taking the time to treat my situation with urgency.
Dr. Bain is very thorough and takes the time to listen to your concerns. You do not feel rushed and he genuinely cares about your well being. I have recommended him to other people and they are very satisfied with him.
Very casual, very easy-going. Appointment was fast and easy.
Dr. Bain was just the type of doctor I was looking for. He practices holistic medicine and has a wellness clinic. I didn't feel like I was just another number in the waiting room. He took his time to get to know me.
He is excellent. Listens to your needs and handles directly. Multi-tasks to accommodate clients. Great at integrating western and alternative modalities.
Dr Bain is a real person, very caring, sensitive and gives his all. I feel very blessed to know him.
I have been seeing Dr. Bain for almost 20 years. He has helped through some very terrible medical issues and always helps me feel better and not like a guinea pig.
Terrific! Thorough, compassionate, and funny.
Dr. Bain was very helpful. WIth doctors before, I felt that I couldn't share everything about myself in order to find the cause of my issue. With Doctor Bain, I felt comfortable and he was very real with me about my condition.
Such a gifted physician...
Although somewhat unconventional, Dr. Bain was a pleasure to meet. He was attentive and cared very much about helping me. I will be back to see him again.
I love having a doctor that actually seems to care if I live or die.
Was very professional . And feel confident under dr. Bains care.
Highly recommended him. He thoroughly listens to our problems and suggests the options.
I have been seeing Dr. Bain for 15 years. He has become my personal well-being physician. I trust him to take my entire physical being into consideration when we review my symptoms. He's very astute and willing to investigate alternative procedures/medicines. Love Him!!!
Dr. Bain is very professional and actually cares about your overall well-being.
Dr. Bain is very conscientous about his patients and shows much concern about their welfare. He takes his time and thinks of alternative routes instead of flipping out the prescription pad to write a scrip, he would rather get to the root of the problem and heal naturally which is the way it should be.
Dr. Bain is quite the character! I appreciate his kindeness and honesty. I like he alternatives and manner. I was very reluctant at first, but started to feel comfortable and warm up to him. I will return as needed....
The most wonderful holistic practitioner. Very thorough!
Dr. Bain looks more at the whole body and looks for every factor that could be causing a patient problems, really providing the best care possible.
This man is a healer, not just a doctor.
Dr. Bain is always open to alternative methods and really works with you to try different kinds of treatments. He is very interested in hearing feedback and very encouraging. Nothing is off limits, you can really tell him everything, even the most remote symptoms are important to him.
I have visited several doctors to address my medical concerns, but they only treated the surface symptoms. Dr. Bain thought outside of the box to treat my medical concerns. He is a very caring and thorough doctor. I appreciate his dilligence and have great respect for him. I highly recommend him!
Dr. Bain is wonderful. My life has changed completely since my first visit with him. He found out my real health issues. I'm a new person!! I feel healthier than ever. Without doubt I will highly recommend him to anyone. I'm blessed, thank you Dr. Bain.
Best Doc I've ever worked with.
Dr. Bain was very professional and quite astute. I feel that he can give me the best possible treatment.
always helpful. great knowledge and understanding of the human spirit.
When someone needs a doctor to truly evaluate their thyroid or other hormone issues, Dr. Bain is the doctor to see. He treats the person not the numbers. Too many people are held hostage to effective medical care for supplemental hormones because their doctor will look at their result and say, "you are in the range, you are fine". That could be further from the truth. If it were, why have the ranges changed so much over time. Walk away from a doctor who ignors your symptoms. Go see Dr. Bain and watch your health improve the way it should!
Dr Bain was able to work alongside me to diagnose various food intolerances as well as a candida overgrowth. I went to many doctors before I was able to discover the root problem. Thanks Dr Bain!
I really like Dr. Bain, a lot. I'm very happy with his knowledge level and competency in working with my health, and he was interesting to talk to. I would also appreciate Dr. Bain balancing his excellent ability to analyze my physical state with asking how I, as a patient, am inclined to approach my health.
Dr. Bain blends a variety of treatments into an integrated plan to address the illness, not just mask the symptoms.
Always an excellent physician--answered all of my questions, thought outside the proverbial box and had many ideas on ways to improve my health. I recommend Dr. Bain 100%.
Dr. Bain is an excellent physician. He always puts the interest of his patients first.
Dr. Bain dealt with all of the problems I went to see him about today and even completly got rid of a terrible pain I have been having in my shoulder...I feel great!
Dr Bain is very interested in the complete well-being of a patient. He's a great doctor!
Great doctor, really nice guy. Definitely unconventional and thinks out of the box, but extremely sharp and willing to engage in discussion about the best way to address and treat issues that you won't get with the run-of-the-mill internist. I'm a huge fan!
He is extremely personable and genuine. Great memory...Nice to feel remembered with doctor's because you feel like someone actually cares. He should be a counselor on the side.
The doctor took multiple phone calls while he was seeing me and didn't even address the reason I came into the office. A very nice guy but very unprofessional.
Dr.Bain is a very caring, thoughtful doctor who really seems to want to help his patients. He is willing to think "outside of the box" AND use standard therapies as well.
One of the Best, he cares and it shows.
Dr. Bain has great powers of observation and uses this to holistically address his patients' needs. He genuinely cares about people and their health beyond the routine exam. A heartfelt and talented healer.
I go to Dr Bain for Osteopathic light touch manipulation to remove the strains and kinks in muscles and connective tissue. I always feel better.
Brilliant doctor. Very caring. Spends as much time with each patient as is necessary.
He's a very caring doctor - I highly recommend him!
Great! Wish there were more like him!
He was very honest in his approach to my condition. He let me know that he needed more information before he could treat me. I appreciated his honesty and I plan to reschedule another appointment as soon as possible.
Dr. Bain partners with his patients. He truly cares about their total well-being. He also has an intuitive sense about things that is quite remarkable. Great Doctor!!!
Excellent at out-of-the box solutions.
Dr. Bain is the most thorough doctor that I have been to in my life. After going to several doctors, he was the only one that took the time out to really listen to my ailments. He didnt just prescribe a lot of medicines and send me on my way. He really wanted to get to the root of my physical issues and cure them with a more holistic approach. We need more doctors like Dr. Bain that are patient and always put the patients needs first! Thanks Dr. Bain for changing my life!
Good continuing follow-up meeting, clarifying complex issues and making plan for further progress with difficult problem.
He is A very good Dr.
Dr. Bain's approach to my concerns is consistently thorough, professional, and creative in approach. He treats the whole patient.
Great Doctor, First Doctor's visit I've had since living and Chicago and I will be calling him my physician for years to come. He's understanding and speaks to you like you're a person, not a science project.
Dr. Bain was very attentive and querying. His engaged manner regarding my health concerns gave me comfort that I made a good choice in finding a new physician.
conscientious and down to earth.
We are blessed to know this man.
Dr Bain is very proactive in trying to determine the underlying cause of symptoms and to correct the situation instead of just treating the symptoms.
I was very pleased with my visit with Dr. Bain. He seems to genuinely care about the welfare of the patient, and I get the impression that he has an open mind and a curiousity about medicine--i.e. he approaches it as a scientist would, rather than as a technicion who simply follows rote protocol (as is too often the case in my experience with many other doctors).
Dr. Bain is a compassionate and highly intelligent physician. He combines traditional and alternative medicines to fine tune what the individual needs.
A very personable, earnest, and clearly dedicated professional...
He is always so caring with me and takes time to listen to me and my concerns.
I think my visit to Dr. Bain was a complete waste of time.
I think he's wonderful! I have had two appointments and had a positive experience both times. I read in reviews that he's a little quirky and yes he is, and it's refreshing. my feeling is that he's brilliant. He's the first doctor I've seen regarding my issues that not only makes sense to me but has answers. This is just based on two appts. but he seems genuine, big hearted and approachable. I love that he doesn't have layers of staff in front of him like other doctor's offices. If you are used to the standard BS from most doctors, you'll be pleasantly surprised with Dr. Bain. I never write reviews but wanted to after this experience.
I have been seeing Dr. Bain for 5 years. He has helped me in many ways. He has found many abnormalities on bloodwork that others failed to find because they didn't know to look. He is extremely intelligent and doesn't give up. I am an RN and know many doctors and have seen many things in my 30 year career, so I don't impress easily. He gets me. He has balanced my hormones, found food allergies, chronic infections and got me on the right dose of thyroid hormone, added supplements for adrenal (which traditional md's never do). I suffered with chronic illnesses for a long time til I met him. He has a very caring heart, doesnt dismiss your symptoms or complaints, and is like a detective, painstakingly looking for the cause of your illness, not just dishing out more pills to cover up your symptoms. He also is educated in complementary medicine so he can tell you what vitamin or herbal product is right for you if needed. He always discusses things but you work as a team. None of this "I'm the doctor so I know better attitude". He is very gifted. Thank you Dr. Bain.
Dr. Bain is by far the best doctor I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. I truly believe that people would never fear doing to the doctor if they could have a Doctor like Dr. Bain. He is simply wonderful!
Doctor Bain is always helpful and very efficient in covering everything I need during every visit.
Finally a doctor that is figuring out my complicated health and thyroid problems- I am so relieved that he has already figured out more than other doctors have throughout the past 3 years. He is easy to talk to and listens to my symptoms instead of looking only at lab results. He really has a passoniate approach and genuinely wants to help you. He takes a less traditional approach than most doctors- but he definitely knows what he is doing. Highly recommended!!!
LOVE HIM~!~ !!!
Excellent Doctor. He listens to me and has successfully diagnosed my issues and fixed them. Other doctors have dismissed my concerns and were content to increase my medications rather than try to address the real issues. Thanks to Dr Bain I no longer suffer from migraine headaches. Dr Bain is a nice, easy to talk to professional whose medical knowledge is extensive and up to date.
He took up a question I had been thinking about without my asking it - good to work with somebody like that. "On the same page," and so on.
Very laid back informal atmosphere. Makes you feel very comfortable and relaxed. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to avoid the normal formal hospital type setting.
Great visit. Dr. Bain and I had good conversation and he provided me with good advice. He also printed off info for me to research my food allergies.
finally a doctor who knows what he is doing !
He listens to your problem and is determined to find an answer
This is not your average physician - he is very open to alternative medicine and ideas and is able to give a much broader opinion. He is quite quirky though do be prepared for that.
His approach seems flexible, which probably improves results but takes a little more getting used to.
So far I am very impressed by my experiences with Dr. Bain. He has been very inquisitive about my health in order to figure out what can be done for me to feel better. I have never had a doctor so genuinely interested in the information I tell him about my health. I also really appreciate the fact that he sent me home with a copy of my lab results and encouraged me to make my own decisions about my health. He is very informative and he walked me through my lab report test by test to explain what each number meant instead of just giving me a summary diagnosis. He diagnosed me, but he also made sure I understood how he reached that diagnosis. That was a new and pleasant change from most health care professionals I have seen.
He could benefit from actually having a staff to coordinate his appointments and follow-up. Pretty unprofessional.
Always an interesting visit! He's very passionate about medicine!
It was actually my previous visit, when I received osteopathic treatment to my (arthritic?) shoulder, that was most impressive, but this latest appointment usefully continued our discussions and increased my understanding of what he thinks are the best approaches to my situation.
Dr. Bain is very good at getting to the source of problems and not just giving you medicine for symptoms.
How wonderful to find a doctor that really cares and knows how to dig down beyond the surface and find the real answer. Lucky for me!
Dr. Bain is awesome. I think I have been seeing him for 4 years now...maybe 5 years. I have very complex health issues and am so glad I found him. I only continued to get worse under the care of other doctors. I have gradually improved under Dr. Bain's care. He is very thoughtful and constantly researching and networking to make sure no stone is unturned in my treatment considerations and to make sure diagnoses haven't been missed. He is also one of the very few doctors who are open to my input on my treatment. I also see Dr. Bain as a general physician. He is wonderful. :-)
Good man. Good doc. Good appointment.
I've been going to him for around 15 years. I think he's the kindest doctor I've ever seen and I love his alternative aproach to healing. We have an intuitive working relationship that is very comforting to me. He has become a friend as well as my healer - I love him!
Brilliant clinician and easy to talk to!
Dr. Bain is knowledgable about whatever health problem I come to him with and never fails to restore me to health.
No "doc-bot" here. He took time to listen, asked questions concerning my health and I came away feeling that I finally have someone on my health team. A rare quality in a health professional these days. Thank you, Dr. Bain.
Excellent experience. Doctor Bain truly cares about his patients and is thinking outside the box. In his individual approach to each patient’s well-being, he uniquely blends elements of various techniques to address the core issue at hand, not just the symptoms.
Dr Bain is the best. He really listens and is very thorough.
Dr. Bain gave me a lot of reading to do, and good advice which will be put to the test in the next three weeks. I will book an appointment with him in the next 3 weeks.
THE BEST DOCTOR IN CHICAGO DOWNTOWN! :)
The doctor listens to you and then makes A decision on treatment . He is the BEST Doctor I have ever .
he's a good man. and thorough.
Dr. Bain is always trying to get to the root cause of the problem. He listens to your symptoms and will not just treat the symptom, but he will find out what is causing your symptoms, ultimately leading to a cure or treatment plan.
Just visting Dr. Bain interviewing for new primary care doctor so not much to say but I will probably see him again.
Dr. Bain is very proactive is trying to determine what the root cause is of the symptoms and to fix the problem.
Hilarious doctor! A great guy to chat with.
Alan is very personable and has a very good bedside manner. He listed to my problem and took the time to accomodate my wishes.
He consistently demonstrates that he is not a mainstream standard stamp-a-prescription doctor. This man thinks out of the box, using his education & experience to find an accurate diagnosis & action plan for wellness.
He is definitely attentive and won't bs you.
He isn't a conventional physician (your run of the mill clinic doctor) - he spent as much time as he needed, listened to my issue and understood it and was really engaging as a person.
Excellent attentive care and follow-up with Dr. Bain.
He takes time to listen and is very thorough. The visit is always an adventure.
He waas on time and very pleasant. He spends time in asking what your symptoms are and gives resources for you to really understand your illness and treatment options to lead you to wellness. Thanks Doc!
Solved my problem, worked with me, easy to talked to and got me in right away.
Dr.Bain is lovely, caring man. He can be quirky at times, but that is why I go to Dr.Bain. He does not offer a cookie cutter approach to my health. Most important, I always feel as though he is listening to me as I describe my health concerns.
best doctor i have had in a while. he takes his time with you and explains thing so you can understand. would recommend him highly.
I've been seeing Dr. Bain for a while and find him superior for what he does.
Very good vist
Anyone should have the luck to find a Dr. who takes the time to listen to a patient and work to find out what is wrong to help the pt. I went through several Doc's before I found him. He is a brilliant and caring person.
I highly recommend Dr. Bain.
Dr. Bain is very easy to talk with and he answers all your questions. He is very approachable and thorough.
This doc is amazing. He really treats the whole person and cares. Yes, I know it's rare but after seeing him he called me just to see if I was ok and if I had any questions. He helped me when 7 other docs would not. What a special man and the way his brain works is genius.
Dr. Bain is the only doctor who has helped me correct a thyroid problem and I feel well for the first time in 30 years. He listens, he is smart, and he is not afraid to try something different if he thinks it will help.
An experience to remember....a very personable doctor that took the time to find out about you.
dr bain is an amazing dr. he is genuinely concerned for his patients welfare. he treats each of his patients as his only patient. i would highly recommend dr bain.
a man of high integrity
