Dr. McKinley takes great care of his patients. He is thorough and takes time to listen to your concerns which is a wonderful trait! I don't feel rushed at his office as I've felt at some other offices. I always feel listened to and confident about my care after leaving. The office staff is also kind, professional and I never have to wait long to be seen which is another benefit.

Extremely pleased with my initial visit with Dr. McKinley. He was not rushed and ask me many questions. I felt he had a very good grasp on my RA and all my concerns by the time my appointment was over. Happy he was the RA specialist I choose upon moving to Bradenton.

Dr. McKinley is a fantastic doctor. He is concerned about my RA as well as the rest of my health. He makes sure my medications are not causing problems for each other or my other conditions. I like him so much that my husband is also a patient of his now.

Impressed!! Took the time to listen and read labs (by others) so I understood. Mind you they didn’t even do that for me. Extremely knowledgeable!! I left feeling, “WOW” now that’s a Dr. that genuinely cares and feeling confident, finally!! I have honestly not felt that way about a DR in years, it was truly disheartening. Faith restored!!

I have been seeing Dr. McKinley for almost seven years, and I find him very easy to talk to, and he always takes all the time he needs to go over all of the questions I need answered. He not only talks, but gives a physical exam as well. We go over all the lab results, and he explains all that they mean. I would recommend him to anyone I think he could help.

Dr. McKinley is one of the best doctors I've ever had! He is extraordinarily thorough and very informative. I've found that his service is more of a cooperative endeavor, whereby he encourages the patient to help him to help you... By the patient doing their part facilitates a greater wellness experience & overall outcome. I can't thank him enough for what he has done for my arthritic conditions (GOUT & OSTEOARTHRITIS)

Dr. McKinley was very pleasant and very thorough. I have waited almost 2 yrs. for an appointment with any rheumatologist in the area and after my first visit was completely satisfied that it was with him. The office staff also was graciously accommodating when I had to reschedule due to extreme circumstances and I’m was sincerely grateful. Thank you,
