Dr. William H Hines has the following 2 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    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.

  • Nephrology

    A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
    A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.

Couldn’t make an appointment

I found the staff arrogant. I tried to make an appointment based upon a referral from my doctor. I had lab tests and my health plan requires no pre approval. Staff wanted some kind of formal referral and copies of lab work before they mad an appoinment. If wanted to find out if there was availability, since it was near year end, or if I could make a tenative appointment. All I got was “It’s our policy not to make an appointment until we have all this stuff”. Also didn’t get an estimate as to when they would know when they would have everything the need. They told me every nephrologist had this policy. While they were still trying I go another appointment in 5 min. Based on my experience I can’t even believe the other ratings of the “Ease of Appointment” or “Courteous Staff” are real. I was able to make an appoinment at another doctor in 5 minutes.
