Professional Statement

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.
