After my first physical exam with Dr. Russ Hines, I must say he is simply the best doctor i have ever visited in my life. The interview and exam were at least 90 minutes and were very detailed and thorough. I was astounded at his care, interest, time and encyclopedic knowledge, wrapped in the best bedside manner I've ever seen from a physician. Now I know why it took months to get my first appointment with him. Highly, highly recommended. Other doctors should observe this man and get some tips on what medical practice should be. WOW!
Dr. Hines is a very caring doctor who makes you feel as though you are the only important person in the world while you are with him. He has helped me through several serious medical issues and I was always impressed with how well he worked with the other doctor's involved in my care. His nurse, Pat, is also amazing and has helped me get the information I needed as quickly as possible. She has called me back and helped me through health emergencies when I was out of state. I enjoy going to see Dr. HInes and Pat and that is more than I can say for many of the doctors I have used.
There are much better doctors in the area than Dr. Hines. His office staff is rude and he seems nice, but when an emergency happens, he is nowhere to be found. He talks the talk of being a caring doctor, but his actions show him to be more interested in seeing as many patients as possible and spending the least amount of time in the hospital as possible. There are much better doctors in the area.
Russell Hines is one of the best physicians I have known. I am 46 and have a PhD in physics and, as you can imagine, I am very intellectually demanding and Dr. Hines met my expectations. He also has a very good bedside manner. I strongly recommend. I had to discontinue with him because my employer's PPO became too expensive so I switched to the HMO.
