I was referred to Dr. Kenmuir for an angiogram with planned stent after Doppler and CT scans w/contrast showed major blockage in the left carotid artery. During the procedure at UPMC Altoona, PA, Dr,. Kenmuir discovered the shape of the blocked artery (later determined at 95 %) would cause problems with the stent and would require surgery later. She then gave me 2 Doctor options for the surgery. I was contacted the next day by Dr. Paul Gardner at UPMC Prespy in Pittsburgh. The endarterectomy surgery was recently done and recovery is progressing daily. Dr. Kenmuir's decision to abort the stent procedure was 100 % correct in my book. I think another doctor with a GUNG HO attitude would have resulted in a temporary solution for a permanent problem. I hope Dr. Kenmuir continues to practice at UPMC Altoona, PA

Dr. Kenmuir is a neurologist, treating specialized medical needs. She directly told us that she only makes herself available 5 days a week for any situations with her patients because she does not want to be "over stressed" with any after hours situations. She wants neurologist's money, but not the responsibility after hours. She should move to a nice and easy practice like primary care if this is how she sees herself.

Saw Dr. Kenmuir while in hospital with stroke like symptoms. She told me I didn't have a stroke. I asked what else could cause the same symptoms. Her only answer was that it was all in my head. Another doctor said several different conditions can have the same symptoms. He ordered some labs to be drawn to check on one condition. Results will be ready soon. Seems to me that Dr.Kenmuir is a poor diagnostitian with limited thinking when it comes to neurological conditions.
