dr kinnier was great each time I saw her starting with my first visit.

March 01, 2019

She really made me feel at ease over my recent breast cancer diagnosis, she listened and after I left and had more questions, she put me at ease and answered me with information that I was able to understand.

Dr. Kinnier carefully explained my diagnosis and the potential treatments. she was respectful of my need to have surgery and maintain professional commitments. She worked with the office staff to find a surgical date within a week so that I could maintain my commitments. She also took the time to explain the entire procedure. Because I have a healthcare background, some providers just assume you know everything. She did not assume and was thorough in the procedure and potential complications, as well as recovery time. She asked me if I had any concerns and answered all of my questions..

Regarding the visit on 01/04/19, Dr. Kinnier expressed concern about my inguinal hernia and was easy to talk with about my upcoming repair procedure. I requested that mesh not be used because I had heard negative reports about side effects. Dr. Kinnier explained there should be no problems with using the mesh at my surgery site. I did object to having students present during the office exam and to the prospect of having these students participating in the hernia repair procedure. I was also wary of having the CT Scan.
