He tries to build a safe and joyful partnership with his patients, working hard to understand their priorities and values, and create treatment plans together that best fit his patients’ needs.
In addition to family medicine, Dr. Raines-Morris has a passion for geriatrics, palliative care, and end-of-life care, in particular.
Dr. Raines earned his medical degree from Tulane University School of Medicine in New Orleans, Louisiana, and a master’s degree in public health from Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine.

Although he grew up in Portland, Oregon, Dr. Raines-Morris left the West Coast after high school to explore the country and complete his undergraduate degree in Massachusetts.
