What They’re Saying

Dr. Hines is an excellent doctor. He is very caring and professional. My wife had rotator cuff surgery. She had an unrelated medical situation the first time her surgery was scheduled which required her to go to the ER. Dr. Hines personally called that evening to check on her. After she was cleared for surgery the second time Dr. Hines did a wonderful job. Her surgical scars are almost entirely unnoticeable. He fully prepared her for what to expect both during and after surgery. He was always very encouraging with her during her follow up visits. His staff are all great and also very professional. I would highly recommend Dr. Hines if you are in need of an Orthopedist.

Dr. Hines is extremely knowledgeable, compassionate, and thorough. As a former competitive strength athlete, I’ve had my fair share of sports injuries over the years (and subsequent surgeries). What really makes Dr. Hines unique is his personal investment in getting patients back to the lifestyle they enjoyed before injury. He made me feel comfortable, and more importantly, CONFIDENT, in the decisions being made about my treatment.

I had broken my collarbone severely and was seeking immediate help and attention. As the holidays were rolling up and the New Year was arising, it came to my attention that finding a surgery would be difficult. Dr. Hines immediately reached out to get me an appointment the very next morning. When I met with him, it gave me hope. I knew from the moment we met him that this was the only man I wanted to operate on my clavicle. With the background he had, I knew I could trust him with my life. Dr. Hines was the kindest, most professional doctor I had ever met. We were able to fit in a surgery within a week. When we were going into the operation, he prayed over me and I truly felt like I was going to be okay. As weeks have gone by, I am grateful because this surgery has made me feel like this injury never even happened. Dr. Hines was an angel sent from God. Thank you for Dr. Hines for everything you have done. This was the greatest experience I have ever had.

Such an amazing experience. Dr. Hines prayed over my son before his surgery. What other doctor does that? We were blessed to have had Dr. Hines take care of our son. Truly an exceptional doctor who genuinely cares about his patients.
