Dr. Marcono R Hines has the following 1 specialty

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Did not listen

Dr Hines did not listen to my concerns or take them seriously. He dismissed me and my physical problems. His bedside manner left me in tears. I do not recommend him to anyone.

Craven Egoist

While the majority of physicians around the military bases in this area are now reflecting the fears of "drug-seeking" patients by referring all those who are chronically ill to "pain management clinics," the one center not to be is Nova Pain Management.Dr. Hines cheerfully demonstrates a callous nature toward his "practice"which he appears to view more as a fiefdom than a medical calling. His staff is strictly trained to cancel appointments on the spot, should rules never made clear not be met, or problems arise not in control of the patient.Hines himself is openly dismissive and degradingly rude. Several patients complained of his behaviors, before I met him; I somehow believed my understanding of patient rights would overcome any attempt on the part of a physician to behave in such a hostile and unprofessional manner.Instead, after his bullying refusal to treat with no substantive reason, I filed a complaint. I have been ill four years, and have seen specialists in many states. Hines ranks as the worst character I've yet encountered.

My regular Dr. referred me to Dr. Hines for pain management due to Degenerative Lumbar Arthritis,Fibromyalsia, Chronic Pain and other reasons. His statement to me was I was just there for "drugs" offered no help of anykind. I wouldn't take my dog to this doctor.
