    Dr Ain knows what he is doing and is I presume good at what he does. However, he knows it. His personality his hard to take. He's full of himself and it makes it hard to carry a conversation with him. I don't doubt his medical expertise is great, but in my opinion, bedside manner and comfort with your provider is important too. Dr Ain makes it hard to feel comfortable around him in my experience.

    Dr Ain is great, been seeing him for 19 yrs! Not sure I would still be here without him. He still fusses about my weight and blood pressure and I appreciate that he cares

    I do not recommend Dr Ain - his attitude & the way he talks down to me every time I see him is very discouraging. His new APRN was like a breath of fresh air at my visit - but it was ruined when Dr Ain came into the room. He may be excellent at treatment of Thyroid Cancer but his treatment of patients is atrocious

    *Dr. Ain insists that I have high blood pressure and will not listen to me that my BP's normal at each other doctor and at home. He did not let me tell him that I have lost 20 pounds either!

      Dr. Ain and Belinda were very caring and communicative, explaining not just the "what" of their recommendations but also the "why". I left confident in knowing and understanding the overall treatment plan, and what factors impact it.

      Dr Ain is a good doctor, however, his bedside manner needs some work. I have only seen him twice in the last five years but every encounter is frustrating and somewhat uncomfortable. This particular visit, he immediately wanted to discuss the pandemic, which is fine, but went as far as asking if I was vaccinated and why I wasn't vaccinated. Honestly, he grilled me for a good 20 minutes about the issue. He stated, "it's my duty as a medical provider to assess why you are putting your health at risk." He also went as far to say "I hope your son is okay." After knowing that I had not received the vaccine while I was breastfeeding. I appreciate him as my thyroid oncologist, his research and his willingness to do whatever he can for my treatment is great. But when it comes to COVID and my choice to decline the vaccine at the moment, is none of his business and I shouldn't be grilled during my appointment about it, when I'm there solely for my thyroid treatment/ results.I felt very uncomfortable and attacked, I almost left the appointment as soon as it had began. I tried to change the subject and move on but he just kept on pressing the issue and wanted to continue the conversation, I had to ask multiple times for him to stop asking.

      Too much time spent on things I already knew. Felt like I was bullied into agreeing to something I don't need.

      Dr. Ain and his APRN Belinda Blair treated me wonderfully. They truly strive to provide care for the whole body and not just my thyroid. They went above and beyond to help me with another problem I was having the day of my visit. They were so kind and caring and I truly believe they were glad to see me and help me. This practice is the best.

      Dr ain could use a lesson in showing manners to his patients if when asking the patients opinions and questions instead of dismissing them as if they aren't important or correct just because they differ from his opinion.needs to use common courtesy instead of arrogance just because he is educated does not give him the right to be rude to his patients

      Dr. Ain does not care to listen to me. He has his own opinions. For instance, he wants me to use a pill reminder box for my medicine. I have successfully taken my meds on time for over a year with it but he still insists on it and badgers me about it. Also, I do not like to be pushed to join a diet program. Dr. Ain wants me to join Weight Watchers. In the past, I have been a member of Weight Watchers and it was detrimental to my mental health. I explained that to him and he didn't care. He pushes that on me each visit. His APRN said something really inappropriate at my visit. She said that I need to think like a thin person. That mentality will not make people lose weight. Lots of thin people eat unhealthy but due to their body composition, genetics, and/metabolism they do not gain weight. I get anxiety before my appointments because Dr. Ain will not stop harassing me over this. I only go to him for his expertise. His bedside manner is inappropriate and detrimental to my mental health.

      Dr Ain is by far, the most in-depth physician I have ever dealt with. He is never rushed and takes the time to assemble the most complete health record possible, including family history

      Doctor spent 30 minutes talking about covid vaccine. 10 minutes if that talking about my thyroid care. He seems very pushing about me taking the vaccine. I was very stressed out over the visit

      My experience with Dr Ain is horrible every single time. He crosses the line in multiple areas. I was there for a specific reason, my thyroid routine checkup, which in whole if he just stuck to that, would only take 20 min. But I received lectures on things I didn't ask his opinion on at all!!!!! But I got it and took up most of the time he spent with me.

      I have seen Dr. Ain since 2003. He has provided great care for me up until now. I feel his adding another blood pressure medication to my regimen without my input or the input of my personal physician was not right. I have since seen my personal physician and she is handling that part of my care.

      I saw Dr Ain at this appointment and I have been thrilled with his follow up care for 13 years now. Even though I have moved out of Kentucky in 2016, I still travel back to see him for the best care in the country.
