Healing is both and art and a science. I think that Dr. Cairns is a good doctor, but I'm not sure that we are a good match.

Dr. Cairns always gives me confidence that my health issue will be addressed and treated thoroughly. I feel like a partner in my treatment, given all the options and the best opinions for me to make intelligent decisions concerning any health issue. By the way, I've already recommended Minor and James to a friend, and now he's got a doctor on the staff.

I have a chronic health issue which has required treatment for 20+ years. I have seen a lot of doctors in that time. Dr cairns is by the far the best. He is caring ,compassionate and always provides the best treatment possible.I had been on a course of medications for several years. The doctor I was seeing in Bellevue would not change them because he either didn't know a single pill option was available or didn't feel there was any need to change them. When I reviewed this with Dr Cairns,he explained he was certain the other doctor has valid reasons for his decision but was willing to make the change for me. The results from the change were my co pay dropped by over $100.00/month and the single pill I take now has improved my blood work significantly.This is only one example of the excellence Dr Cairns demonstrates on a routine basis.
