Dr. Bains is the BEST!!! After years of suffering with RLS, and uncountable attempts by other doctors to treat it, Dr. Bains was able to relive all of my symptoms in a single visit. Thanks to Dr. Bains, RLS is not something that ever crosses my mind anymore. Dr. Bains´ friendly demeanor has made my office visits something I actually look forward to. I know I will be greeted with a smile, and know that I am in the care of a doctor who demonstrated genuine concern for my health and well-being.

Dr Bains is a jewel. He explained how my sleep apnea affects other aspects of my life; didn´t yell at me or make me feel bad because I´ve gained some weight since my gastric bypass; and also explained what the stats he got from that little memory card in machine mean. I was very pleased with Dr Bains and look forward to working with him.

Dr. Bains seems to be very intelligent and caring.

Dr. Bains is one of the nicest physicians I have seen in a very long time. I am very comfortable talking frankly to him about my sleep problems. He spends enough time with me to listen to my problems and inform me of recommended treatment. He is the best Sleep Specialist I know.

April 2016
Seemed like he was in a hurry to wrap this up after 5 minutes.

March 2016
It´s too bad that Dr. Bains limits his practice to what he does with sleep disorders. He would make a great doctor to have, as my regular doctor. He is absolutely the best doctor I´ve ever had. I love going to see him.

March 2016
awesome provider. Have already recommended him

February 2016
Provider gave a "one-size-fits-all" solution and didn´t really help me with my problem. I am likely to seek out a different provider for this issue.

February 2016
This is the first visit I had with Dr. Bains for my sleep apena. I recently moved here from Scottdale, AZ where I was seen at the Mayo Clinic. While Mayo is good, Virginia Mason and Dr. Bains exceeded my expectations. Dr. Bains is first rate.

February 2016
Great person!

January 2016
I was very impressed with Dr. Baines -- his manner, expertise, and ability to explain sleep disorders. I have already recommended him to friends. I just wish he was a general practitioner!

January 2016
Thank you Virginia Mason for your care for excellence.
