Was seen due to left knee pain that was getting progressively worse. Had some xrays and a cortisone shot and i have gone from a 9 on the pain scale to a 3 and hoping it will be even better tomorrow

Dr. Kenney took ample time to discuss the situation during each visit and provided support and suggestions as we navigated some mobility issues. Very personable and caring!

I would highly recommend Dr. From. He has always spent the time to listen to me and review the details of my visit. I've had other family members go to him also- they also speak highly of him.

Received good care and advice about things I could try at home and if that does not resolve my issue they will follow up with next step care. They made follow up appointment for me in case I should need it. Overall good care

Dr Kenney has given me Rooster Comb knee injections 3 times in 4 years to help me avoid have knee replacement surgery. It has worked each time. I am so thankful he is my doctor. Each time he explains everything and makes sure I am alright after the injections.

Review for Dr. Timothy Kenney, MD

Dr.From seems to be a good doctor, from my experience with him. But throughout your appointment with him you have the definite feeling that he's thinking a lot about his next patient. It doesn't bother me too much; I just assume that he gave equal thought about me with his last patient.

Excellent Surgeon! Very thorough in explaining procedure. Stopped in before surgery to see if any last questions or concerns. Very easy to visit with. McCook should be proud to have Dr. Eskildsen, and the great surgical team of nurses!

Review for Dr. Walter Eskildsen, MD

Did not meet with us before or after surgery. A week later when I went in to get the results that I had breast cancer, he never even checked the biopsy site.

I have been to Dr. Kenney about 8 times. Each time he spends enough time explaining things, and listens to me. I never see anyone else!
