This was a follow up appointment. Dr. Kenny was knowable to my case. He was through in asking my concerns since my last visit with him, which was 4 months ago. He discussed his plan of care, & what labs I needed checked this visit. I felt well cared for. My lab results were available to me on Ortho VA website later that day.

My appointments with Dr. Kenny are always very good. Not only does he listen to your concerns, he also answers any questions you have in a way that you will understand. When I went for my first appointment I was terrified regarding my condition. Dr. Kenny took the time to calm me down and assured me I would get though that difficult period. That was approximately 15 years ago. I am very grateful for the care I have received from Dr. Kenny and I would recommend him to anyone.

I finally got a call from Dr. Kenny's office in early in the year 2019 that my appointment with Dr. Eric is scheduled for June 2020. I thought the wait is worth as I didn't wanted to see the nurse practitioner as my RA is on a very aggressive mode ( seeing a Rheumatologist in Richmond until I get an appointment with Dr. Kenny). And I get an email that my appointment is scheduled with the nurse practitioner and not the Doctor 2 month before my appointment date. Ps: If I wanted to see the nurse practitioner, why would I wait for 2 yrs and waste my time. This kind of behavior coming from a doctor is highly unprofessional and not at all expected. I am really disappointed.

Dr. Kenny is the most prompt physician I have ever worked with. He always considers your time and works hard to get you in and out of the office quickly. He listens and provides answers to questions as needed as well as an appropriate plan of care. I would highly recommend him.
