This was my first visit to Dr. Vines. The new patient paperwork took me about 20 minutes to fill out. I had to wait about 25 minutes in the exam room before being seen, but Dr. Vines apologized explaining she hada conference call that went over longer than expected. She answered all of my questions, and listened to all of my concerns. She seemed genuinely eager to help me with my concerns, and come up with a game plan together. I would highly recommend her. Also, her entire staff was friendly. The phlebotomist and her medical assistant were awesome.

I love Dr. Vines office. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The wait hasn’t been more than just a few minutes. Dr. Vines asks a lot of questions and really listens to every single one of your concerns. It’s abit of a drive from where i live in Eastlake, but it’s well worth it. I’ve already referred two close friends to Dr Vines.
