  1. Dr. Rainey is fabulous!
    We’ve seen him on two occassions and he discusses every aspect of the situation very thoroughly and makes sure you understand the situation at hand. How many doctors do you know that sees you at your scheduled time, spends time with you answering your questions and walks you out the door and wishes you a great day? Not many!

    Thanks Dr. Rainey, we are glad your here in Mississippi!
