Dr McKinney was very qualified and the surgery went very well and was out of ICU within 25 hours and discharged from, hospital in 5 days. His procedures are very updated and bedside manner great. I would recommend him to anyone who needs heart surgery Lewis Armstrong

I consider myself very fortunate an blessed in having Dr. McKinney perform my triple by-pass surgery. Pre and post surgery care were in his good hands and his coordination with the ICU's staff. Dr. McKinney has very comforting bedside manners with his patients and equally while working with the patient's family members and making well-informed decisions. The entire office staff is highly skilled and professional. It's their top priority to ensure you receive quality administrative service.

He is the most professional, caring doctor I've had the pleasure to know, and I am honored to have him as my doctor. I had complications after surgery, and he was always there to help us through whatever we needed at the time. He looks at the big picture, and understands how important family and emotions play in the healing process. He saved my life, and his love of life overflows in the care of his patients. HE IS THE BEST; they do not get any better than Dr McKinney!

Dr. McKinney was extremely personal and honest. That was, of course, very important to us. We are so thankful that was chosen as my husband's surgeon. Explained everything and has seen us even though he was over with us! ;)

Dr. McKinney goes above and beyond for his patients. He explained everything to me, answered all my questions and reassured me. He lisented to my concerns and handled them in a professional manner? Never rushed, he spent as much time with me as I needed. I would refer a friend or family member to Dr. McKinney before any other surgeon.

He saved my life and I will never forget him.
