Dennis Hines, MS, LPC, MAC


Dennis Hines, counselor, works in partnership with physical therapists, physician’s assistants and chiropractors at NextGen to help workers’ compensation candidates get back to their normal lives.  His fascination with people led him to his counseling career.  Hines says workplace injuries cause more than chronic pain—they often result in anxiety and depression that can profoundly affect family life and parenting, along with social life and love life.

“It’s a joint effort here at NextGen to improve the quality of patients’ lives and not only their physical function, but also their emotional function, so they’re not isolated and sitting at home.  I help them make the adjustments they need so they can live a happier life.”

Hines believes the convenience of providing multiple services inside the clinic has a notable impact on patient wellness and improvement, stating that it’s because seeing all their healthcare providers in the same place allows an individual to focus on getting better instead of driving all over town.

He goes on to explain what sets NextGen Wellness Clinic apart from other clinics.  “The difference between us and a lot of clinics is that we are the personal touch.  We care a whole lot about each person there.  I try to go above and beyond, making sure the patient gets everything they need.  It’s a sharing of patient responsibility and teamwork.”
