Best doctor's office experience I have had since..i can teven remember. Got in on time, treated quickly, and was out the door. Really a nice experience.
Extremely brief visit, did not feel like a thorough consultation to address my issues. I informed them of what my prior dermatologist prescribed and they just re-prescribed it.
Great doc and office staff... Only con was the parking which had to be paid.
Dr. Rainey was outstanding! She was courteous, understanding and knowledgeable. I sincerely felt welcome in her practice and I will not hesitate to visit her again if needed.
Although I am sure she gave me an accurate diagnosis, she spent all of 2 minutes with me, then said there was nothing she could do. It was a very disappointing visit and I may get a second opinion.
She was attentive to my needs and was able to professionally answer all of my questions. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a fabulous dermatologist!
Dr. Rainey was very friendly and professional.

Definitely found my Dr and already referred her out!
Dr. Rainey was awesome! I arrived a little late because I'd never been there before but, they got me in the back within minutes of arriving. The entire appointment was very quick and she answerred all my questions and concerns i had other than the main reason i went. I had to have injections in my scalp for hair loss and it was very easy and she had everything available in the room, i wasnt waiting forever! I will definitely be going back to her for my skin needs!
Quick and Professional! Will see again!

payed out of pocket price was reasonable for dermatology services but wait time to see dr. was over 1 hour which is much to long to be seen.
She was very professional and thorough, yet warm and attentive.
Dr. Rainey has been my dermatologist for a few years and i would never go anywhere else. A perfect combination between being knowledgeable, but also listening to her patients needs.
She was great, really good listener and her staff was great too.
I was pleased with how smooth and prompt the service was. Also I was offered treatment I had not heard about before. Excited to see how things progress
Dr. Shaffer-Rainey was fantastic. I was in and out of the office in less than 30 minutes. She was open to prescribing a medication that I was interested in, as well as prescribing a thorough management plan to get my issues under control. She is definitely detail-oriented and noticed I was engaged; I'm happy to have someone focused on getting my skin under control before my big wedding day next year. As a student nurse practitioner, I can truly appreciate how well managed Dr. Shaffer-Rainey's practice is run.
I'm very happy with my visit today. Thanks
Fast and friendly service.
they didn't have my appointment time right according to zocdoc. they overcharged me. no surprises on the medication... same ole treatment. on the bright side, they saw me within 30 minutes. and adjusted my copay to the correct amount.
I had an appointment with Dr. Shaffer-Rainey, but I ended up seeing a different doctor. I can't recall his name, but he was very good! I will definitely return to him!
She is awesome, this is my second visit with her for different reasons she knows exactly what the problem is and gets it resolved, I would highly recommend her. Thank you Christy...
The most bestice care that any Dr. can give to a patient is medication that really works. She did. Thanks CS-R, MD.
I really liked her! She made me feel comfortable the entire time, and very caring.
Dr. Rainey helped me tremendously on a couple different skin issues I was having. She recommended several low-cost, high quality products that greatly helped and that I use every day now! I would recommend Dr. Rainey to any of my friends or family.
I think she is awesome. Dr.Rainey treated me w/ such kindness. I will continue to go to her for any dermo problems that should come up.

Awesome visit... Dr Rainey very compassionate, knowledgeable, & caring ...Thank you so much :)
Very informative and the staff was friendly.
Dr Rainy was very concern & compassionate & made me feel relaxed & she showed genuine concern for the insect bite I have on my upper left arm & other areas too. She is very enthusiastic about her job & aims to find the problem. Her passion for her job & for me as her patient far exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend her. & her staff.
Great rapport -- excellent results for all the procedures she recommended.
sweetest most caring doctor ever.
She was very nice, but I definitely did not feel I had her full attention. At one point the nurse came in and had her sign a chart on another patient while I was talking. I think she was just busy and already behind for the day, but it rubbed me the wrong way.
The wait time was a little unexpected, however, once I let the staff know that I was already running late they did their best to help has Dr. Rainey see me ASAP which I appreciated.
I liked that she took the time to explain my condition and gave good directions for the use of medications prescribed.
Professional, thorough ggressive treated my condition
I think she was busy, and that denotes that she was doing well. I forgot to tell her about a couple of spots because she is the prettiest doc I ever saw.
Took me with self pay at half the price. Loved it!
It was a great experience and I can't wait to see the results! q
Very nice, friendly, easy to talk to.
She was very friendly .....a genuine person...
Dr Shaffer-Rainey was excellent. She helped me with my concerns and I felt better when I left her office. I would reccomend her to all my family and friends. She is a compassionate and caring professional.
I was there very briefly, which was good. She was very nice and so was her staff. They took care of my condition and she was also very willing to answer all my questions to help inform and reassure me.
comfortable and reassuring
Warrants more visits.
she is wonderful and really is concerned. she listens and explains everything with calmness. i loved her.
Good visit, this was a followup of the meds she prescribed then is working great. Thanks Doc!!
It was pleasant
Dr. Rainey was very friendly and quickly saw to my concerns. I've been to several derms in the past who didn't even touch my face on the first visit. She got right to work! I would say the only negative is traffic can be tricky downtown, so give yourself plenty of time to get to the Towers
Recommended what I needed. I was worried that they will sell me different products- but she is very professional and sympathetic of my needs.
very attentive and made me feel comfortable to ask questions and express my concerns.
She was very friendly and answer all my questions. I would recommend her to my friends and family.
