  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract.

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Careless

I waited for 45 min to see Dr Bain. While my husband had a good experience with him, I certainly did not. I went in for a serious problem with IBS. Treatment! more fiber and drink more water. Never even asked how much I already drink or eat. Do you want a colon scope? He says. Why exactly are you hear. No tests for parasites, no review of meds that might be a cause, no diet to eliminate or help problems, just drink more and more fiber. I can get this from a magazine.!Very insensitive and uncaring, I felt humiliated when I left his office. His assistant was wonderful to me. Mayb she should take over for him!!

I've been a patient with Crones of Dr Bain for the past 22 years. He has been fantastic in helping me live a better life. I have all the confidence in the world for Dr Bain and have refered him to many friends, including my wife. I received a letter from Dr Bain last month and before I opened it got really nervous thinking that he might be retiring. Thank goodness it was only a letter about insurance.
