Ratings for Dr. James R. Kinney
We've been going to Dr. Kinney for about 20 years after he took over Dr. Grimshaw's practice. Yes it's a big practise and there'd been times of high staff turnover and there was one or 'mean' staff last year or so and they've been terminated. I atually talked with Dr. K about that and he was concerned and had the supvr come in to a room privately to chat with my wife and me. Dr. K explained former staff started created some rules that were not approved such as if you're late by a certain amount they'd turn you away. We felt staff is friendlier and better and Dr. K cares a lot and has a good bed-side-manner, he hates making people wait and is big on preventative health care and screening. He personally called me about a concern on my lab report and advised to see a uroligist asap.
I have known and been a patient of Dr Kinney's since I was a young girl. In fact,he was our entire family's physician. After I married and had children of my own,we continued to see him until he tried to label my then passive 17yr old son who was 3yrs old @the time as having ADHD!(Back then in the 1980's-early 1990's he was a general practioner/family doctor). Needless to say, Kinney was proven wrong & I found wonderful docs for the kids & my husband & myself. Unfortunately,for some reason my sister still has some loyalty to him and continues to be a patient @"Our Family Doctors" as the sign reads,but she very rarely sees him,usually an intern or nurse practioner. He's gotten too big and seems to rarely be there. How sad. Oh, the office staff,forget it,Fran (she did Humana referrals)is either over worked/under paid or just plain rude & a miserable person. She's nasty with patients & their family members. If I spoke like that to clients,I would be fired from my job.
