I don't know that I can adequately express how grateful I am to be lucky enough to call Dr. Kaine my primary care provider. He has helped me find myself. He has never made me feel judged. It's difficult to emphasize how critical a piece that is for me in particular. I judge myself enough. He helped me get sober, and never made me feel guilty for struggling with alcohol. He made it feel like a manageable condition, even when it felt so out of control for me. He has helped to guide me to this place of health. From physical ailments and illnesses (of which there have been MANY!!), to navigating even trickier waters of severe depression, PMDD, PTSD. He has consistently reassured me that we will work TOGETHER to find a solution. I realize now that a solution isn't always easy to see and often takes multiple tries, attempts, an open mind, to find the mix for what works and helps to heal. And the mix can change! Sometimes those words fall on deaf ears, even when someone is screaming them at me. Sometimes the screaming inside my brain that wants to poison me drowns that out. He has never given up on me. He has seen me at my lowest. Guided me through postpartum depression. Allowed me to say out loud how desperately I wanted to end it all, to not live anymore. And he didn't abandon me. The kind of strength that takes as a doctor is remarkable and I don't know that I will ever understand it. To be able to witness such pain and suffering, to see through it, to arrive at a diagnosis or plan that doesn't crush the patient...and not only that, but to have multiple patients?! Superhuman in my eyes. Dr. Kaine is a CARE PROVIDER. In so many different definitions of that title. I feel cared for. I am a much healthier person right now. A not-small percentage of that can be attributed directly to Dr. Kaine. And because of that? My son is going to have such a rich, full life! There will be challenges ahead. Many. Dr. Kaine has helped me to feel more equipped to handle them. I can never give back to him what he has given me. But I can say thank you. From the bottom of my soul, thank you.

In asking for Dr. Kaine I got what I requested , a doctor who practices similarly to my retiring Dr. David Paplow MD. I had to wait a few months to get on his list but worth it .
