After a not so good experience at another doctors office I was recommended to go to Dr. McCain. From the moment I called to make an appointment I felt good about changing doctors. The staff was super nice and Dr. McCain took the time to really listen to me about the issues I was having, as well as explained things in detail of how we were going to fix the issues. I felt extremely comfortable and left with a peace of mind, just knowing I was at the right place and was going to be taken care of. I would highly recommend Dr. Francine McCain.

This is such a loving and family feeling place to go. Everyone is so sweet and so caring. They are always so kind and attentive to my daughter's needs. I recommend UT Health East Texas to any woman looking for and excellent, caring, professional Dr and staff. We looked and Dr. McCain and her staff stand above anyone we have gone to.

We had a great experience with Dr McCain! We had come from a different Dr when we realized we were having a miscarriage. She took her time and explained everything very thoroughly and got me in right away. We ended up using her when we got pregnant again a month later and she delivered a beautiful Healthy baby girl! We were very pleased with how we were treated by not only her but the office staff. They make you feel like one of their family members.
