Dr. Gainer is absolutely the best Dr. I've ever had. He's so easy to reach through my Vanderbilt website and usually his nurse answers me the same day! When I'm in his office, there is no hurrying - he acts like I'm his only patient. He listens without interrupting and shows great concern if I have a problem. He offers solutions and listens to my concerns 100%. I originally went to him for my HBP and he tried several drugs over several months until he fixed my problem. Genuine, kind, knowledgeable, friendly person. If everyone had a physician like him!!
